No doubt that you are going to enjoy this place, people are friendly, the quality-price is good, the view and the shape of this hostel reminds me of Gaudi and if you are a surfer this is the place for you.

I stayed at the Melting Elefante for three days, Michael was the host because Marco was out of the country. The pictures seemed a bit odd but they're far from representative of the actual place.

Can't fault this place or the management. Amazing spot on the beach, clean and very well run. Mike goes out of his way to ensure your stay is as enjoyable as possible, and it was! Originally meant to stay 3 nights but ended up staying 7. Even for the budget conscious such as ourselves this can be made affordable.

The place is funky and the kitchen is very useful and majority of the time, clean! Room four is incredibly hot and does not offer air con so we moved to room five and...

Wonderful - there is nothing more to say about this hotel !!! Hotel is right on the romantic beach. Nicaragua is an amazing and wonderful place to get away from the running life. Hotel managers are amazing :)
