I traveled to Granada for one night. When we arrived to this beautiful colonial city, we walked a few streets to find our hostel. It was pretty easy to find it. When we got there there is a lobby where u'll find the staff. They were very kind and tried to help us with the directions to everywhere. The dormitories...

This hostel is really neat- set in a large Victorian house with a huge dorm room with mainly double beds and private fans per bed (when not stolen by other hostel guests in the night). The food is suprisingly good. But be warned- you must wear inscent repellent to sleep. I went to bed the first night without it and...

Sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us and I hope I can clarify a few points that you made. If a guest took your fan this is difficult for us to control, we provide all the beds with fans to try and prevent this. After a little rain there will be mosquitos, we do fumigate...

Welcoming hostel with everything you would need as a backpacker. Secure lockable cabinets and CCTV to keep your mind at ease too! Receptionist was very helpful as we arrived at around 1 in the morning. Good food too 👍

We were 3 friends traveling and stayed at the Mombacho room!The atmosphere of a colonial house is just great as part of the experience to be in Granada! The room was very spacious, hight ceiling and colourful! The staff were friendly and breakfast amazing! Worth chill out in the round rattan chair! Thanks, Dami, Dika and Dib

I used El Momento's shuttle service to pick me up from the airport in Managua, and the driver was right on time. When I arrived mid-morning, Zacharias at the desk was beyond helpful and even asked if I wanted to practice my Spanish with him (I was shy, but knew I needed to!) He showed me all around the hostel...

Thank you for your long review and giving informative information for future guests including the firm mattresses and fans etc. Sorry about the water problem and you should have been told in more detail, we do mention it in our guest folder in the room but you may have missed it. 3-4 times a week the government turn the water...

Good location. Facilities were good enough and seating area options were excellent. Staff were mixed with most being very friendly and helpful. Dorm was clean and bathroom good. Needed another fan in the door as very hot and guests were 'borrowing' each other's fans.

Thank you for making a review and nice comments, we do have 8 fans in the dorm and if we had another 8 it would not make a difference this year as Nicaragua is having extreme heat they have not had before. The only difference would be putting AC into the dorm but the price for dorm beds would be...
