I stayed a couple of days at this place. First my phone got stolen. I left it on the table for a little while, when i came back it was gone. and i was the only one in the dorm. Afterwards, 60$ from my locker got stolen. the locker was always locked when i was outside, just when i was in the kitchen i left it open. This is the worst place i have been so far. Additionally, the stuff is unfriendly and doesn't really care about anything.

After staying one night at Big Foot Hostal, I checked out and went across the street to this quiet, cheaper & peaceful hostal. The private rooms are quite spacious, each with a very clean private bathroom. I enjoyed sitting in the common area rocking chairs enjoying great conversations and looking at the lovely garden area. The kitchen is a plus too. This is a family owned place, and the husband lived un the US and speaks English.

This family-run hostel is really a good deal for León. We had a double room with private bath for 18 USD - very clean, very nice room with a fan (the room get's hot during the day anyway). There is a small garden, a clean kitchen to use, with free coffee and free Wi-fi.

The people running the place are very friendly. It is a quite place, away from the typical backpacker scene. The location is great, with the VIaVia nearby for great and not so expensive food and drinks.

The hostel i really can recommend to other people looking for a quite and nice place to stay - the price is an excellent deal compared to other more famous hostels, although León in general is quite expensive.

Stayed in a private room with bathroom. Prices are comparable with some other hostels but this one had much larger rooms, very comfortable bed and kitchen. Very clean and quiet - the party action takes place elsewhere so you can sleep in peace away from the crowds and the regular backpacker scene. Great location. Very nice family owned hostel - highly recommend it.

We spent about four nights at this nice and good-value place. Rooms with private bath are very affordable, the kitchen is well equipped and you can sit in a patio with a lot of green. You can also swing in a hammock underneath the water tower. Definitely recommended! Other hostels in town were either fully booked or too noisy and none of them was cheaper.

If you want to escape the hustle, bustle & noise that most hostels in Leon have raging around you then this is a good place for you.

Run by a very friendly family, this hostel is very central but a very quiet feel & not the noisy vibe like the surrounding hostel. A kitchen for you is a bonus as well & is very close to the supermarket.

Stayed here for about one week in early March this year. Got a big, clean, private room for a very reasonable price. Towels and soap are supplied. No English spoken here but the staff are very friendly and helpful. Great location, two more large hostels on the same street if you feel like mingling with other travelers.
