Ah Tortuga Booluda, I have many fond memories of my time at Tortuga. A really good hostel. After 18 months of travel throughout south and central America, it ranked in my top 3 places to stay and was my favourite place to come back to. A nice kitchen, comfortable beds, clean dorms, tasty pancakes, fruit trees, quality local coffee (free), pool table, honesty policy, excellent book exchange and most importantly, friendly local staff in the form of Carlito, Santos and Carolina who helped me no end with my Spanish. If going to Leon, I recommend staying at Tortuga - I think you wont regret it and even Olin is not such a bad sort if he happens to be around. Enjoy it and climb some of the volcanoes. I certainly did.
