“We always come back to this spot!”
Reviewed June 11, 2011

I've lived in Nicaragua for a few years and always come to this hotel when we're in Granada for the weekend! It is by far the best value for your money and I fully recommend it.
The hotel is located just 3 blocks from the Central Park in a very safe and quiet area so all the best restaurants and bars are only minutes away walking.
Backpackers Inn caters to all types of travellers (budget backpackers, couples, families, etc) at a very reasonable price. They've put incredible attention to detail in the room designs (REAL mattresses, 25 ft high ceilings, original wood doors), the modern bathrooms (with hot water!), landscaped courtyard, and fully equiped kitchen for guests to use. You get all the luxury without having to pay the high end price!
The staff are very friendly and helpful and can give information about the town or help arrange taxis.
Last time we were there, they were just about finished building brand new private rooms with a beautiful swimming pool in the courtyard that is already available to guests...such a nice relief from the Granada heat!
All in all, a great home base in Granada. 100% recommended.

We had a wonderful 6 days stay at Backpackers Inn. This centrally-located Nica-owned hotel is a lovely colonial house with a pretty garden in a central courtyard, fancy woodworking and furniture, and beautiful artworks. This place is geared to the fancy, “upscale", backpacker, the “bourgeois bohême", which is perfect for families with young kids. During our stay, it was very quiet and peaceful. Our family had a very spacious, sumptuous room (the one mentioned in the first review below; we didn’t have any cold shower and toilet flush problems, though), and the other family travelling with us had a room just as large and charming as ours. There was a full kitchen we could use, laundry service, free Internet access, and the staff was warm and personable (gracias Doña Rosa y Doña Josmelina!). The hotel is expected to extend to the next courtyard; during our stay in late march, 2011, we were the privileged first ones to take a dip the brand new pool!
