The vibe of the bar and restaurant is very inviting and chill, we had a big group of 8 and there were big tables we could all fit at. The waiters were a little slow and not very attentive, but got the job done. There were lots of options for all eaters. The kitchen is ran by native women, you... More

Maybe don't believe everything you read? I stayed here April 2015. One evening another guest started absolutely freaking out because of bed bugs. She had found a small beetle crawling on the wall beside her bed. It was not a bedbug. (It also wasn't a cockroach, though cockroaches are a fact of life in the tropics, so even if it... More

We got off the ferry super late. This place was perfect. 8.50 per person nice shower, they even pulled our moto into the backyard for us to keep it safe. The burritos there were awesome. For us, it was great. No it isn't a hotel it's a hostel. One of the better ones we stayed in for sure.

One of the best places in Moyogalpa. It's cheap, has a good atmosphere and located close to ferry and city center. There is also a good restaurant in the hostel. Stuff is friendly and there is possible to organize a hike to the volcano with hostel's guide. The only two problems - bathroom in private room is dirty and bedlinen... More

The beds in this hostel were so dirty, dead animals, bed bugs, hair and dirt. After I complained, because I had a lot of bed bug bites, they told me, that they will clean it, change my matrace and wash my sheets. But it was a rude lie, because afterwards the bed was as dirty as it was before. You... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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! ... more   less
