“Chilled out Hostel”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

Rooms small, but practical. Beautiful garden area with a nice pool to cool off from the intense Leon sun. Excellent breakfasts. Good facilities for backpackers, with plenty of showers. Friendly, helpful staff. Excellent location. Quiet at night.

Lazybones is a cool, laid back and non-party hostel with tons of information on the surrounding area. It also has very helpful English speaking staff. Plus an awesome clean pool, free computers with wifi and big private rooms Make sure to make reservations if you want a private room as they are very rarely available for walk-ins. Also, lots of smoking in the common areas which we personally don't like. Overall this is one the better hostel options in Leon. We stayed in an upstairs private room without bathroom for 2 nights.

Clean basic hostel with wifi and towels. Dorm rooms looked good, the double room was basic and seemed slightly over priced at $30. Slightly lacking atmosphere but good location 5 mins from center of town. Breakfast was good (highly recommend the fruit and granola!).

This is a very well organized place, always friendly service, coffee the whole day, quiete and clean rooms. A swimming pool and breakfast for those who want go out early. A good place to get in contact with a lot of other travellers. And not far away from the cathedral. A laundry and restaurants are nearby. Also you can book easily trips their.

Room Tip: Double room with a bath - it was really enough place for the luggage and us. :-)

This place is great. Loved it.

Lazybones is located about a 5-10 minute walk from the cathedral and has plenty of good food options around it. The hostel is spacious and has hammocks and different areas to sit. There's a pool at the back which is great for Leon as it gets really hot. There's also a pool table and free tea and coffee.

We stayed in room 15 which is good as it's not on the pool side so it's nice and quiet and also it has no neighbors. It's a spacious private without bathroom which cost $20. They keep the place very clean - seem to be mopping the floors every 20 minutes - and changed the sheets a few times during our stay.

There is a really nice atmosphere here. It's social without being a party hostel and the staff are all friendly and helpful. Lazybones seems an appropriate name as everyone seemed content to just chill by the pool or have a snooze in one of the hammocks. It's the kind of place you can easily get stuck for several days and I'd say this is the best place we've stayed at yet on our trip.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Go for room 15

We stayed quite a few nights at this relaxed and lovely hostel and it would have to be one of the best places we have stayed so far on this trip. It deserves a great review as it was inexpensive (20 USD privates, 8 USD dorms) clean and very chilled out. It is not a party hostel but you can have a few beers and chat with other travellers in one of the lovely outside common áreas. Leon is hot and having a pool is a massive bonus and we spent the hot afternoons relaxing by the pool, getting a tan and reading our books. A lovely retreat in a hot city!

We spent three nights at this hostel in a private room with bath. The room was clean and comfortable. Also, this place has a pool. Still a rarity in Leon. You pay a lot more at hotels that have swimming pools. Also, they have a nice pancake breakfast and their staff are very friendly. The location is good as well since it is only a short walk to all of the central places. I would definitely recommend this place, even if you are not keen on staying at hostels. Beats a lot of hotels.
