Lovely walled courtyard with rooms around. Good pool table and chill out zones. Dorms were cool and comfortable. Location is perfect. A short 20C taxi from the bus station and a few minutes walk to the centre of Leon

We stayed 2 nights at Lazy Bones and I was really impressed by the value for money of this Hotel: 1. The hotel is very very clean. From 7am to 8pm you can see several cleaning ladies washing common spaces, toilets etc. 2. Lot of space with hamaks to enjoy your time. Also a pool which is very clean too.... More

The hostel is well situated, there is no kitchen or refrigerator, free tea & coffee and cols drinks for sale, our room was for a family, we would prefer a double room, the room was hot, much cooler by the lovely pool. The staff gave us very helpful advice about Leon which is a grubby town.

Never booked any tours with them as there are better/cheaper options at Bigfoot. The Internet was down so we spent more time there using the wifi at other places..It was ok I suppose. No atmosphere. Lots of French guests but it is French owned ,so fair play. A nice sized pool but "too much chlorine pal" we also witnessed a... More

We stayed here a couple nights, and was not impressed at all. The place was empty with no atmosphere. Also - only 1 staff member on reception was helpful, and the others did not make you feel welcome and at times were downright rude. Nicaragua is a hot country at nights, however the rooms at lazy bones were just insanely... More

We booked a stay here for a few nights. . The bathrooms were crawling with cockroaches and the rooms were way too hot to have a comfortable night's sleep. The staff were also very disorganised: we asked for information on a shuttle service to La Ceiba and were told that it would be no problem to stay at the hostel... More

Our experience at Lazybones was not a nice one. We read some good reviews on a blog and decided to book there but we were really disappointed. The place is badly maintained (our bathroom door was falling to pieces!), dirty, our fan didn't work properly and the staff was unfriendly, we didn't feel comfortable to ask much information or any...

I initially booked for 3 nights but extended my stay for 2 extra nights. I had one of the big rooms on the first floor, basic but comfortable with beautiful view. The staff was very helpful for booking tours and the shuttle to the airport. Highly recommended!

Very good, breakfast is delicious and made quickly. Bedrooms are big and suitable for groups. Beds are stable and good quality. There's a lot for entertainment such as a pool table, swimming pool, TV and others. Rate it at 3.5 overall and is a very comfy stay over a short period of time.

What a fabulous place. The dorms are cheap, spacious and comfortable, there are lots of great common spaces and the pool is a lifesaver in the Leon heat. The staff are friendly and helpful and the hostel attracts a great type of people. Good cheap breakfasts too! Highly recommend!
