I stayed at Hostal El Momento for about 10 days and my stay could not have been better.
It's the only hostal I found in Nicaragua that actually provides ACTUAL (and very comfortable!!) matresses for their beds. The dorm room is HUGE. You have an ambundance of space to put your bag and belongings, as well as being provided with a secure locker for your valuables. What's more, because the room is so big it's very breezey and a good escape from Granada's heat, however if you're still hot every bed has it's own individual fan to cool you down a bit more!
The bathroom was awesome. It reminded me of a massive roman bathroom where the shower area is huge (3x3m) and then you have another huge separate area for the basin/toilet. And ofcourse it's always kept clean.
The staff are great! Extremely friendly, helpful and also like to joke around which gives the hostel a very communal/easy-going atmosphere that you can relax in. Wanna crank up the relaxment? Well some hammocks are thrown in there too.
Finally, you HAVE to try Chris's food. It is AMAZING! I'm one for trying different restaurants/eateries when I'm in a different city however I ate here 10 times just trying the different dishes because the food was so good. Try the Jerk or Fish burgers, or the Thai curry - AWESOME!
If you're tossing up between this and Oasis - Go here. Why? Because Oasis is set in the middle of a crazy market place where there are touts & just a lot of hassel. You don't want to be walking back through this area late at night after a few drinks at La Calzada. Whereas El Momento is closer to La Calzada and set on a really nice, quiet (and more importantly safe) street.
Cheers! Give it a go! You won't be disappointed.
