Hostel Pachamama kicks off the notorious sunday funday and it is an absolute blast. If you want to get into pachamama for sunday funday, book early though because spots usually fill up by wednesday. Also, try not to be on the floor becuase it open windows and it is scorching hot up there. The staff is nice and you'll definitely...

Only stayed one night with a group of 4 friends. Booked it that same night we stayed and the person at the front was very accommodating and even booked us a van for our next stop. The location is great for those who enjoy the nightlife as it's right behind the main street. They also host their own parties and...

I loved Hostel Pachamama, the vibe was really fun, the owner was friendly, and the location was great! We stayed in Pachamama from Thursday to Monday (DON'T miss Sunday Funday). It was the perfect way to end our Nicaragua trip. There's always a party going downstairs at Pachamama with lots of backpackers both from the hostel and from other hostels....

First this is a party hostel. They host parties and they host the Sunday Funday so it's usually full. It's located right in the middle of downtown, about 100 m away from the beach, and near to the main bars so you can go party walking. They have two build the big Pachamama y the small Pachamama. The small one...

Great experience, good price, friendly staff and a good place to meet fine people. Must be there for a #SundayFunday event, starts at 2PM in the bar by the pool and then you will party until sunset. Loved it.

Pros: free pancakes and coffee in the morning; half price Sunday Funday tickets (if you stay from Thursday); each campus has a pool; each campus has a kitchen; wifi is good but not excellent; close to town; each bed has a fan and loads of plug points in each room Cons: no matches or lighter ever provided in kitchen or...

From the moment we got to PachaMama my brother and I were treated like family by the entire staff. We had so much fun that we ended up staying for ten days when we originally only planned to stay for a few. Sunday Funday was the best experience of the entire trip and the endless activities made every day exciting....

I've stayed at the Annex to Pacha Mama and found it to be clean for hostel right on the beach. I honestly expected a lot more sand on the floors. They do an great job of sweeping up the dirty plastic cups the drinks. Service is fast friendly for the amount of people you have to keep happy. Pacha Mama...

Great hostel- definitely a party hostel so just know that and be prepared for that type of atmosphere when you arrive. I stayed at the big pachamama, there's a smaller hostel building as well; stayed in the upstairs dorm which was quite comfortable with the breeze at night. I stayed for Sunday Funday so it was certainly loud but nothing...

Definitely a party hostel, and the crowd is great. Attracts the friendly party-goers. Part of Sunday Funday, so if you are there on a Sunday be prepared to be up basically all night. Wi-fi only works on the ground floor common area, and is on-and off for the most part. Safe, with gate locked at night and security over-night present....
