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...

We absolutely loved our stay at el momento! It is centrally located, one block from the main cathedral. We loved our room and enjoyed cheap cocktails prepared in house and sat in the beautiful garden in the center of the hostel. Great wifi too!

Unfortunately the private rooms was booked out, so i spend 2 nights in the Dorm. The Dorm is very cozy with big beds, every bed...

As the title states I had the misfortune of staying one night at the bearded monkey, so maybe this place isn't five star, but it sure felt like it compared to that place. The owner was friendly and helpful with any questions I had, the rooms and showers were pretty clean and the beds were very comfy. If you get...

Right as soon as I walked in I was greeted with a smile. The staff answered all my questions and helped me get to Laguna de apoyo. Also gave me a quick tour of the hostel. It's not that big but it can be spread out. It is beautiful, they have an open courtyard with a garden in it, which...

I stayed for four nights in the dorm in march 2015. I would highly recommend this place. The dorm is 8 dollars a night, you can get one for 5 elsewhere, but for the extra 3 dollars you will have a very comfortable stay. The dorm is huge with a lot of airflow, and an fan for each bed. The...

Thanks for the review and some important information to pass on to other travelers. It is correct that there are other hostels in town for $5, I think it is subjective and depends on the guest and what they may class as comfort. I do not want to talk about other establishments and only that we do receive comments from...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hostal El Momento for two nights (February 7 & 8) as our first stop of our vacation in Nicaragua.

Thanks for the super review and I will pass on the information to the staff they will very much appreciate your comments. It always good to hear that guests think we are clean and that you also got to meet fellow travelers, this is not always the case as it can always depend on the type of guests staying with...
