It's a good located hostel. We had a private room which was good. Enough showers and toilets. Brekky is good. You can get coffee whenever you want. They can organize everything for you. Deff a go is you go for a few days and you want a bit sleep as well :)

The hostel is in a strategic position, just opposite the church of the Recollection. We slept in a spacious double room with a private bathroom facing the inner courtyard. You can order your breakfast - included in the already cheap price - and chill on the hammock (so comfy you might fall asleep..). Various birds and hummingbirds tweet and fly...

I left this hostel with mixed feelings. When I came in I felt a lack of atmosphere: it was very dark and not really people around. But in the back there's a lovely patio, so quiet and nice: really liked it! Also beautiful wall paintings everywhere. They gave me a little discount on my private room and slept very well...

I booked 2 nights at this hostel in a private room with shared bathroom based on the good reviews on trip advisor. Most reviews say that rooms are clean so I was quite disappointed when I arrived and was shown my room (room 10) to find a curtain rail hanging loose, one curtain hanging from broken plastic window shutters, dead...

This is one of the tranquil hostels in Léon, it really is a tranquil one as it is peaceful, quiet and they don't sell you a beer anymore after 23.30. It is located 3 blocks from the city centre and it's great that you can walk to almost everywhere in Léon from there. The breakfast is really decent (pancakes with...

I enjoyed our stay at Hostal Colibri. The hostel was extremely clean with a large kitchen featuring working appliances and a large refrigerator. The free breakfast was large and filling and the staff was extremely friendly. León is extremely hot and the dorms have no ventilation and only a small fan to keep the place cool. It doesn't really work...

Stayed 3 weeks here during our Spanish course. Some nights in dorm, most of the time in a room with shared bathroom. Rarely spent time during any travel in such a quiet hostel. THIS IS NOT A PARTY HOSTEL. If you want party, go to Bigfoot Hostel (which is walking distance). Santos, the man in charge at Colibri, will help...

The price is great, the location is very convenient to everything in Leon, and the breakfast was amazing (pancakes and fruit or eggs and beans - we got both meals and both were delicious). The shared bathrooms and showers were quite clean, as were the rooms, especially since they were all "open" without being fully sealed off from the outdoors....
