We are a group of 11 people and we stayed for 3 nights. At first I thought it was a little to far but changed my mind quickly after I talked to the owner angel and tried the food. It's actually in a great location where you can walk to the waterfall and the ojo de agua is easily accessible... More

Great place to get away and relax. Took a $40 taxi ride to get here from the port but it was worth it for the great service, beautiful beach, and serene atmosphere. Very quiet at night, there's basically no traffic. There is wild life around which was very cool- wild donkeys and the like. I would definitely come back again... More

Hard to reach, by bus twice a day or by taxi but Worth it. Great family owned place with a nice beach easy to access, surrounded by Nicaraguen family. Small room with not so comfy bed and a pretty damn good service. Restaurant is good and not too expensive. Great Sunset by the lake.

Wonderfull service, good food and perfekt location! It is far from the boat but it is worth it. You are close to some of the Best activities on the Island. Not a bad word about this place. And a special thanks to Angel and Freddie.

On basis of the reviews of Monkey Islands, we decided to visit Monkey Island Hostel and endure the long way to reach it. We are a couple traveling now for 1 year and 6 month all around the world, we've seen hundreds of hostels. We usually don't complain but this one was very disappointing. So, we just wanted to give...

An average hostal with average pricing, I came expecting 5$ but apparently the price has been raised to 7$ per person for dorm. The hostel has no kitchen but a restaurant on sight; with extremely affordable breakfast, great fresh juices and decently tasty food. The location is not right on the lake but a short 2 minute walk down, that... More

Although a long way from the Ferry in Moyagalpa worth every minute! An absolute Nicaragua-family atmosphere, combined with excellent food and spotless clean rooms. Close to very quiet beach, relaxing hammocks and special and warm treatment for children. If you are in for a local touch on Ometepe, this is the place to be!

It was my second time after 2010 that I came to this homefeeling place again. The owners are extraordanary friendly and helpful and the value you get out of that lovely place, far away from the tourist crowd is phanomenal. Even the ride there is the first adventure you have to get through you will not regret the stay there.... More

It was really good to be back. My third visit since 2005 and I enjoyed it as much as before. The simple but clean rooms, the relaxed atmosphere, the location, the hammocks, the beach, the yummie food, the interaction with the other guests and last but not least the hospitality of this great family. They really know how to make... More
