I stayed at Backpackers Inn for four nights. I had a shared room that was clean and low cost. The best part of staying there was all the people from all over the world. We hung out had dinner and a great time. Will definately stayy there again

If you want a nice place to stay in Managua I would recommend! The staff was friendly and helpful. There were plenty of places within the hostel to hang out and meet folks as well as nearby places to explore and go out.

Couple stay, before coming back France. Pleasant and near airport by car, easy to find in Managua. Be careful of rooms near the swimming pool because of noise at night. Kitchen and staff ok, good quality/price ratio.

Hi, Thanks for your feedback and advice to fellow travelers. It's true that it can be a bit noisy by the pool. We do have quiet hours at the hostel, which begin at 11pm. During that time, guests are asked to keep noise to a minimum. Thank you and see you again soon!

Located conveniently near transit, this is a decent place to stay if your flight into Nicaragua doesn't leave you with enough time to get out of Managua. It didn't wow me but it served as a one night stop on the way to/from the airport.

The hostel is alright for a short stay in Managua and the communal area is nice with two hammocks and some chairs at the pool to enjoy the sun. The staff is friendly and helpful, only one guy (who works during the night shifts) isn't really guest orientated and I didn't felt welcomed when I checked in. The rooms are...

Great location for a quick stay in managua. Close to metro centro and both main bus terminals. Nice area of managua which is fairly secure. Hostel is clean and offers lots of facilities like a kitchen, pool, computers etc. Dorms a but squishy and one fan for 8 beds is not okay but that is my only complaint. Staff were...

Hi, Thanks for taking the time to review our hostel. Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We'll check the mattresses to see if they need to be replaced. Also, both of our 8-bed dorms have 2 fans, which includes one overhead fan and one large floor-based or wall-mounted fan. We'll check those to make sure they are in...

Hi, Thanks for providing your comments. I'd like to apologize for the confusion about your payment. We do in fact have a system to register all of our reservations and payments, but obviously, the receptionist at the time either didn't update the system correctly or was mistaken. Our apologies for the misunderstanding. Regarding the safety in the area...although the area...

Good for a short stay. Clean rooms, as well as the kitchen and the pool. It is close to a big mall. Pancake breakfast. They have a reliable shuttle-service to the airport. Not so much to do around the hostel.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. We're glad you enjoyed the amenities of the hostel. With a bit more time in Managua (perhaps a day or two), there are in fact things to do in the area.

This was the last accommodation on my holiday. The shuttle was convenient although quite a bit more expensive than a taxi.

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to review the hostel.
