“Really nice place, super friendly owners”
Reviewed June 15, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I didnt stay here, but i surfed out front and the staff let us keep our bags here so they wouldnt get stolen or messed with and i hung out and had a coffee and some food after surfing.

The patio is CRAZY nice. Right on the beach, its a great spot. Food is great, their burrito is seriously awesome.

The owners are really awesome and do everything to be super friendly and accommodating. Its always nice to know youre staying at a place with owners who actually care about their guests experience, and Eppie and Leslia definitely do. Theyre such nice people!


Would definitely recommend people to stay here, as i will definitely next time im down in Nicaragua.

“Amazing !!”
Reviewed May 19, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This hostel is just amazing! The rooms are clean and really comfortable. Ebi and its wife are really helpful and friendly. The hostel is just in front of the beach. The food is really good too! Try the burritos, it's soooo good ! The best hostel we had in Nicaragua.

I don't know where to start. It was amazing!
If you're here to surf, perfect.
You'll find the nicest waves right here @ the beach.
Best service in whole of central america.
It's brand new.
The beds are comfy, the rooms are cool. Private bathroom in every room. WITH FRESH WATER, which is not normal in this area. Some other places just have salt water showers, which you don't want after a whole day of surfing.
The bar/restaurant is right @ the beach.
And they have ice cold glasses for your beer. First and only place i've seen this in central america.
The kitchen is clean and quick and the burritos are delicious.
The owner is one of the greatest people i've met so far on this trip.
With her husband she did everything possible to make our stay the best we've had in whole of Nicaragua.
You better not miss that place and find your way to the barrel.

“A place in the sun with burritos the size of barrels”

person found this review helpful

This facility is brand new beautiful, excellent, kind service and situated right on the shore so close to the waves you can taste them. The special burrito "the barrel" was so massively delicious that I wanted another one immediately after if only for the pleasure of something so incredulous! Great people, atmosphere, view and food!
