Backyard Hostel
Ranked #19 of 76 Specialty Lodging in Granada
Reviewed September 10, 2013

I stayed there 3 nights, the hostel is really cool and well situated.
Swimming pool, bar, hammocks, sand and funny animals everywhere ...
However the staff was awful, the owners always looked annoyed at our questions , if they were not sleeping, enjoying their hangover in their room.

I stayed a couple of days at the backyard and had a great time. I stayed in the dorms which they drop the price to 5$ for low season and the rooms starts at 12$. I had a couple of drinks with Pete the owner in the afternoon and we listened to a great variety of music. 120 cords for the media bottle like 13 shots of Flor the Cana rum with coke limon salts and ice was one of the best deal ive seen in my life. Lets just say that I shared t with other backpacker and we had a good afternoon. They also know a lot about granada and its surroundings. Best value of the city without any doubt.

The hostel was decent for the price of $6. Location was probably best part nice to have a pool too. There was not much atmosphere in the hostel and sat bbq that was advertised was never organised but good for relaxing and nice chilled music. The rooms were nice and spacious but The beds were pretty uncomfortable and they could do with some new sheets. The place is kept clean day to day but could do with scrubbing the kitchen and seats and new bins in bathroom etc. With a few extra touches this place could be really good. Overall good experience for price and would recommend but have stayed in better!

15 US$ for a private room and 6 for a dorm. One of the cleanest of our 6 weeks trip in Nicaragua. A recent hotel with very friendly owners. Nice place, chill and fun. The cheapest place we found in Granada. I highly recommend!!

My boyfriend and I were about to head out of Granada after staying in a crappy hostel, until we came across Backyard Hostel. We loved what we saw and ended up staying there for 4 more nights!! The people are absolutely great, there's an awesome pool that you can cool off in, a bar, a kitchen, both dorms AND private rooms. 3 bathrooms (toilets AND showers in each). Cute parrots and rabbits running around the hostel, WIFI and a computer etc. But I would say the best part about this hostel were the people. We made some great new friends and got a lot of advice on what new areas to explore. The owners have done a great job with this hostel! We've recommended it to everyone who tells us they're heading to Granada.

6 USD for a dorm! Its a realy nice place and the pool/bar area is an amazing place to chill out! Bathroom and kitchen are very basic but definitly okay for this price! There is everything you need and the staff is helpful! They have rabbits and iguanas in the garden which is fun! I realy enjoyed my stay

Great hostel, really helpful friendly staff with good knowledge of what to do around the area. Beds aren't the comfiest but there's a nice bar and pool. Going location just outside the main area. Would definitely recommend it.
