Great hostel if you are after a central base on ometepe, its family run and you will share a kitchen/common area with them but all super friendly. Great price and nice clean rooms. If you're looking for a good nights sleep to do activities etc and facilities to be able to make your own food it's great although there's no...

The place was very nice and clean,though one would prefer if the person who is working on reception had more information and better attitude,she always seemed that she doesnt really care about anything else than her phones and her friends to try to get some extra bussiness.The owners were thogh very sweet and nice people.

Very close to the ferry to get back to the mainland (you can see it from the hostel). Rooms were decent, but could do with more fans or plugs for fans. Only one toilet and shower to share, but wasn't too bad. Has a basic kitchen and free water to refill with. Very cheap and definitely worth it. We went...

Checked out a lot of other places in town and they were either full or not what we were looking. We should have headed straight here. Nice large double room with private bathroom and open to negotiation for multiple nights. Friendly and helpful staff. Close to town for food, drinks and tours.

I spent 2 nights un ibsa 2. The room was basic and comfortable. The hosts were wonderful and both Lina and the man who watch over the place at night were lovely as well. They let you use the kitchen and all. The morning views are just gorgeous and its kinda magic to wake up and see the fishmen doing...

You'll be greeted at the ferry port by the owner who'll take you to the hostel. It's very budget, but good value (around $8 per night). Rooms were cramped but clean. Nice bathroom. Small hostel so no real atmosphere but great location in the centre of town. Don't expect luxury, but it's a practical, friendly, budget hostel

Stayed at hostel ibesa for a night and we're greeted by very friendly staff who offered tips for what to do around town. Rooms we're relatively clean, and the house was a 100% Nicaragua experience! Very close to the port, restaurants and the supermarket. I recommend it!

This hostel is in a good location in Moyogalpa. The room was clean but very besic: bed, ventilator and a little table. The privat bathroom was clean. Staff friendly and able to speak a good english. I recommend this hostel and the island of Ometepe.
