Hospedaje Central

We are a Backpacker-friendly hostel with Bar and Restaurant. Our goal is to provide a great service and friendly environment to everyone who enters Hospedaje Central. To accomplish that::: We have hand-crafted our restaurant's menu, offering a broad range of delicious dishes - from local cuisine to global classics; you're bound to find something you enjoy. (People love our Batidos[smoothies] too):: Our Bar is stocked with the best local liquors and a variety of world favorites as well. If you're not feeling the high-end alcohol, we also have a nice selection of "Cheap and Dirty" brews that won't be too heavy on your wallet. There are also delicious mixed drinks available for those who want to try out the local fruit concoctions. And of course, great music. Whichever type of fun you want, we can help you get there.:: If you aren't into eating, or drinking, we enjoy helping our guests plan their adventures. We have great contacts around the island to help you get what you want. Whether its traveling and making new reservations on Maderas, organizing transport, renting motorcycles or horses, simply giving directions to great beach locations or helping you Trek-Up-The-Ultimate-Volcano: Conception - We can take care of it for you.:: And most of all, if you're just into relaxing, we built an entire hostel around that concept. We have great sitting areas throughout the area, a nice garden under the sun, a reading friendly courtyard, lots of hammocks to swing in, private rooms for secluded time, and dorm rooms for the fun and friendly types. We filled the walls with paintings and culture for you to look at when you don't have a good book, and we're building a small library for you to find that good book afterwards. Overall, its a great place to hang out, people tell us all the time, and we're happy to provide this atmosphere for those who seek it.:: And for those who live on the cloud, we also have THE INTERNET. (free wifi included) We hope this helps you. Enjoy Nicaragua!-Team Hospedaje Central(El Indio Viejo) P.S. If you're not staying with us, at least stop by and say Hello, we enjoy conversation, it's a good way to learn something new!

I would give this hostel 6 stars if I could. My friend and I stayed there as we were traveling through Latin America for 6 months and this was my favorite hostel from the trip. Very atmospheric, really good food, really good location (right up from the dock), nice staff and a gre

Staff were incompetent and awkward. We rented a scooter but the guy working in the hostel tried to rip us off and charge us for the full day although we were only renting for half so be careful of this. When I confronted him he laughed with his friend. There was a strange vibe ab

The double room was very good value for money. The place is clean and central in Moyogalpa, very comfortable to reach the pier in the morning, with local eateries and a supermarket nearby. They quickly arranged for us a motorbike to explore the surroundings for a day. Staff was v

We love this place! Stayed here for about 5 days, then moved to a house we've rented, but we keep coming back here for the good vibe. It's run by great people, it's clean, food is great and reasonably priced. We definitely recommend Hospedaje Central, also known as Indio Viejo.

Although the hostel looked very comfortable with a great atmosphere, we never had the chance to stay there. We kept coming back for the food and drinks though! In a couple of days, we enjoyed a breakfast, lunch and a dinner there. Great food, good quantities for a fair price. Can

Hello, I am Carmen a spanish girl, I was with my friend Jorge the last Sunday in your hostal. The problem is I lost my sun glasses (brown) in the bathroom when I had a shower and the glasses are graduated because I have myopia. Could you send me the sunglases if you find them? I can pay you the money. I stay in Jinotega, San Rafael del Norte, Nicaragua. This is my movil phone in Nicaragua 84042164 Thank you very much!!!
"take a room far from the bar"
"Choose a room closer to the restaurant for better Wi-Fi."
"Bring earplugs!"
"Watch out - the rooms on the left side nice, BUT: Saturday night a club next door has loud party music, VERY noisy in room and sleeping not possible before music is being turned off at 2a.m."
"I'm not sure any of the rooms have good airflow. The best deal maybe a locker and a hammock."
US$10 - US$19 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
