Little Morgan's
Reviewed September 19, 2012

My boyfriend and I stayed here in June. We called from down the street,mthey said they had a cabin available, by time we walked there they had given up our room and only had one single dorm bed available. Considering it was dark by time we got there and we were not familiar with the area we decided to stick it out. We stayed above the bar in a single bed. The mosquito net had holes in it and bugs were biting. The bar was loud and played music until late making it hard to sleep. We woke up early due to being uncomfortable and discovered we had bedbugs. Our sheets were covered in blood and we were bitten ALL over. This made the rest of our stay on ometepe miserable. I counted over 10 bites on one toe. Luckily we didn't get them in our bags and after washing our clothes we were able to rid them. This place is gross. The food was the only good thing!

This place was AWESOME!!!! From the cute little private houses to the great bar scene and food. Tes and Anton and especially Dragon made the experience incredible. You know who the coolest Irishman in all of Nicaragua is? MORGAN!!!! This truly is a place you can feel at home immediately. Not to mention his sister and his mom are total Babe's, capital B. When I go back again, which I will I can't wait to stay there again. Just be careful with the "power rum", it's a doozy. Love you guys!!!!

P.S. The sun setting behind Concepcion (volcano) seen from the mirador is an incredible site!

Morgan's has a perfect social scene with big tables to drink beers with other travelers and a lookout tower with views of the sunset over conception volcano! You will never have a dull moment at this place so be prepared for a night of bottomless liters of Tona!

Spent 3 nights at Little Morgans and had an amazing time. Great time spent swimming down in the lake (a 2 min walk) with a bottle of rum, good food in the evenings and amazing views. One of the guides attached to the hostel, Alexis, is a great choice if you want to climb either of the volcanoes on the island. Felt really at home even though I wasn't there that long, thanks!

We came from Granada to Ometepe, not having decided on anything until the morning before we left. We stumbled across Little Morgan's by accident, and thank god for that. Our original plan was to stay for two, maybe three nights tops. We left after a week although we would have stayed for so much longer. The location is just great, and with the amazingly helpful and friendly staff, cool dorms and incredible vibe, it was almost impossible to leave. It is somewhat of a party hostel though, so if you're looking for something more tranquil and to get in touch with nature, Little Morgan's might not be the place for you, but for backpackers or others who like to meet other travellers it is the perfect place. The bar area is super nice, and it's where everyone comes together at night to have dinner, meet people and have a drink or two (be careful with the power rums. They're lethal. Good, but lethal)
I know I'll be coming back some day, enjoy your stay!

Morgan is a great host as are all the staff. Really homely feel. Short walk to the beach and we also did a fishing trip from the front of the property. Great place to stay

Arrived with no plan and ended up staying here for four nights! The staff was absolutely great, very helpful and a lot of fun! Food was delicious (especially the big breakfast sandwich!), dorm room was beautiful, with comfy beds and big lockers. Room and bathroom where both clean. There are multiple places to hang out during the day and it's right at the lake. But don't forget that it is a place where there is a party every night, don't expect much sleep.. I had no difficulties with that, had a blast every night and read my book and watched movies with other guests and staff during the day. I Will definitely come back here some day!
