Managua, Nicaragua
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

I have stayed in many, many different hostels around Nicaragua, and this one takes the cake for being the dirtiest and least comfortable, with the most unsettling living conditions and overall complete lack of hygiene. The bathroom for the dorm rooms is so small you can wash your hands, take a shower, and sit on the toilet all at the...

I stayed here after seeing it online. What I hadn't found online was the price which was $11.50 per person per night in the dorm, which for a distinctly average hostel seemed a little steep compared to other hostels in Nicaragua. There's free coffee and drinking water for guests. When I arrived, I had to head back out to get...

Very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and showers, options for a/c, and was very safe. Free coffee in the morning and a water filter for refilling bottles, close to tiendas, only 30 mins to the airport. The only hung would be the beds are a little hard , but hey, it's Nicaragua .

Enjoyed this place for one night only. All rooms are clean. The dorm is spacious and the beds comfortable. The shower as big too and towels are provided. Lockers are big enough too and the reception was staffed 24h. The seems to be in a good residential area, close to shops, restaurants and a huge mall. Wifi was fast and...

There is literally nothing to do in Managua. So the hostel is just a stop for the night for a flight next day or on arrival. + : Location is good, close to the UCA bus station to/from Leon & Granada. There is a mall not to far either. + : Staff is nice. Room are decent, shower is hot,...

We liked this hostel. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful, they even let us use their computer to do some research we needed to do. The hostel is quite far from everything, including the supermarket, but the hostel has options on excursions and we were even offered a walking tour of Managua for around $20 each...

This was a fine hostel to stay at. When we came back to Managua, we immediately came here to see if there was a place. The double-bed dorm is something I hadn't seen before: I like it. It is a little hot though, but that is something that is like that everywhere in the city. The private room upstairs is...

This place has a homey feel and is clean. It has a communal kitchen, common areas for socializing and washing facilities. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The location is very central and it is within walkable distance to both MetroCentro and the UCA bus terminal. I stayed here five nights and visited Leon, Granada and Masaya Volcano on...

We stayed here for one night after arriving in Managua in the evening. The hostel arranged for an airport pickup which was sweet. The hostel was pretty quiet but it is clean and has a nice hang out area. Only saw one other person. Rooms are basic and very hot, although I think there is an air con one. Free...

I've stayed at a number of places in Managua and had been looking for a new place to stay in Managua when I pass through. Backpackers Manahuac is a perfect location, close to several places to it and shopping centers, and prices are on par for Managua. Taxi to the airport will cost around $10, give or take a couple...

“The private room upstairs is the only good room.”

“Ask for the upstairs private room (2 single beds) because you can open all the windows and get a great breeze. I've also stayed in the dorms and they tend to be warmer because of lack of airflow, but they make up for it by providing a fan from each bed which was awesome.”
