I did like El Zopilote, so will try to give some factual info to help you if your interested in staying here. You can get there from Moyogalpa by taxi in 30min for $20, or by bus in about an hour. The hostel's a solid 5min hike into the woods from the road, but the lookouts provide great views of the lake and volcanoes. If you are traveling solo then it may be hit or miss whether there are good people to socialize with. The second night we hung out at Little Morgan's Hostel, a 15minute walk away, which was definitely the party hostel. You can rent bicycles along the street, and Ojo de Agua is a 20minute bike ride away. It is super dark at night; you can't use the bathroom without a good flashlight. For the price, this place is a really great value for adventurous travelers.
