We arrived at El Albergue after seeing it on a couple fliers. It is close to the Center of Leon which is a plus. There is some cool street/wall art in the common area and decent public space. The kitchen looked decently equipped with two burners and a variety of pans although we did not cook to attest to this. The guy a the desk was friendly and helpful when prompted for info. Free wi-fi and pancake breakfast offered.
Most rooms face into the courtyard so not much breeze. Our room had a ceiling fan. The doors have locks, but the gigantic, barless windows facing the courtyard are a slight security concern as one could crawl right in with no problem.
Our sheets had hair everywhere and the rooms/facilities are not so much dirty but a bit run down. A new paint job and some TLC might improve some of this.
Seems like the crowd is college-age. El Albergue is probably best suited for younger, more flexible budget travellers.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Lonely Planet says about: Hostal of Albergue is a hostel in León-Nicaragua offering a tranquil and genuine Nicaraguense environment. Really, really great hostel! It is the only backpacker place with a complete Nica staff & Nicaraguan ownership that I have found in León. They have all the services that foreigners expect, and in addition all the local knowledge about culture, politics, etc. that most other places cannot provide. The entire staff is extremely knowledgeable and very interested in conversing about both Nicaraguan realities and eager to learn about the rest of the world. I'm really glad I stayed at the Albergue!
