Leon, a rough-round-the-edges, steeped-in-history city, provides a satisfying contrast to the more touristy streets of Granada. And Hostal Calle de los Poetas offers a great base to explore this intriguing corner of Nicaragua. So many great sights and adventures to be experienced; with Leon being a great springboard. The guesthouse is in a good location, a short walking distance to...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Marthe & Rigo in November 2015! It was an absolute gem of a hostel. Wonderful, knowledgable hosts that made us feel so welcome. The garden and building are lovely, and it's in a perfect location, easy walking distance to the central plaza in Leon, as well as lots of great restaurants, bars and sights....

Excellent location quite close to the city centre, nice, clean rooms, such a beautiful garden, hammocks and a bookstore. Unfortunatley we didn´t get to know Rigo and Marthe, but still enjoyed our stay (although it was sooooooo hot!! Not even the two fans in the room helped)

I stayed 4 nights, and will return. The room was great, the hospitality excellent. Rigo and Marthe were wonderful. Enter through the bookstore (well stocked with a multitude of English language titles) into a small courtyard with tropical foliage, and a back yard with several palm trees. Clean, comfortable and quiet. Short walk down clean, wide streets to the central...

I can't say enough about the hostel and it's beauty. The rooms were spectacular, the garden is gorgeous and the staff are so lovely. It's so reasonably priced (we paid $10 per person per night). There's a full kitchen at your use, and it's very close to all the main streets in Leon. Not to mention Rigo and Marthe, who...

Its hard to put into words the beautiful connection that we formed with Rigo and Marthe. These souls are absolutely wonderful! They exemplify a commitment to community that is a shining example for us all. Our stay was comfortable, adequate, etc... but it was the wonderful relationships we formed with the hosts and other guests that made our stay one...

After an extended stay with Rigo and Marthe I have to say living at Hostal Calle de los Poetas has been one of the best experiences of my life.

I lived with Rigo and Marthe for a month and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. My room was spacious, clean and comfortable.

I had an amazing time in this Hostel. It is really clean and a great place to chill. There are lots of opportunities to relax outside the room. If you have no Books with you, no worries, there is a Bookstore which runs with the Hostel, so there are plenty choices. It is close to every location, the best Bar...

“All rooms have a fan and lead on to a communal garden and covered sitting area with books and television if you want them. There is also a shared kitchen with fridge. There is a small book shop at the front. Its quiet but a good p[lace to meet other travellers if that rocks your boat. We are no youngsters but we could not recommend it more highly.”
