Loved this hostal.

Owner is foreign (Dutch?) but the place is run by local staff (not so common in Nicaragua) who were fantastic in every way. Helpful, great with advice on where to go and what to see, always around to answer questions, happy to share a beer and a game of pool on their very decent table in the common area at the front of the hostal.

Private room for 2 people that we stayed in was nice, clean, good fans (needed in sizzling Leon), great value (8 USD/person).

Location is a few blocks from central square, but Leon is pretty compact and you can find everything you need in terms of restaurants and sights within easy walking distance.

Finally, and most importantly, great hammocks! Lots of them, large ones for two people and smaller ones, spaced all around the common area which also has a nice cool plunge pool that you will probably find yourself jumping into during the middle of the day.

This is great place to stay. Ideal for those seeking cool, relaxing vibe. Breakfast, free coffee and water was very welcome. And the small pool was great for relaxing after a hot trip. I would definitely stay here again.

The hostel is around 10 minutes walk from the Cathedral. Staff are very friendly.

Got my volcano boarding tour and couple of shuttles organised through them. Was done professionally.

Rooms are basic, but quiet and comfortable. Bathrooms are tad small. You can buy water, beer or soft drinks from them, almost at the same rate you would pay outside.

There is a pool table, books for reading and tiny pool. Decor is quite nice and rustic.

Tortuga Booluda is everything a thirty-something could want in a hostel. It's quiet and peaceful because it's on the other side of the plaza from the party hostels. The number of privates outnumber the dorm rooms, but there are dorms available. The rooms feel like a hotel with small touches like cards with local info, hand towels, pretty decorations, and nice furniture. The roomsdo get hot, but the fans cool them down nicely, especially at night. I love that the staff are locals (and so helpful!), and the big communal kitchen, dining table, and comfy chairs next to the pool give people ample opportunities to make friends with strangers. There's a good labeling system in the kitchen. It's centrally located and an excellent value! There's a huge book exchange, and the pool is small but refreshing. The best thing in my mind that TB does is provide free filtered water for guests. Why ALL hostels don't do this is beyond me - especially those that claim to be eco-friendly. I really love their system of ticking off beers retrieved from the fridge; it made me feel trusted and honored as a guest. This is a brilliant hostel and a standard to which all guesthouses should aim. Special shout out to Wilton for putting us on a shuttle at two am with grace and good humor!
