Nothing spectacular, but the staff is great (Jane is super knowledgable and can help connect you with a host family in miraflor, which I highly recommend doing for an "off the beaten path" experience), the hostel is clean. Downfalls are the common area (there isn't really one) but there is wifi. If I am in esteli, I would stay here.

This is a decent hostel. Small courtyard that get noise pollution of the busy road outside, and motorcycles and cars zipping by. Free coffee is alright, and is on offer, but the place lacks a kitchen. There are some comfortable sitting areas to chill. The dorm room I was in had a lot of mosquitos (also in the dorm bathroom),...

The staff is really friendly. We had to go to the police and somebody came with us to the police and helped us arrange everything. There is hot water and the room are big. The wifi is good and free good coffee. Great hostel.

Hostel was nice and clean, however they told us there was hot water and there was not. Very quiet. Staff were helpful however we organised to pick up bikes at 9am and they were not ready until 11...but if a let down. Cafe was fantastic though, best food and cheap drinks. Chocolate is delicious.

My 2 boys and I stayed in a private room in Hostal Luna. The staff was friendly. I really liked that they had water we could refill our bottles with, and that I could do my laundry. The beds were comfortable, with fans and mosquito nets. The staff was friendly. There was music next door which made it loud at...

Very nice facilities, we even got fully hot water one morning! We got a private room with two comfortable beds, and free towels were provided. There were brand new mosquito nets even though there was no bug problem! The local staff was friendly and you get a free cup of coffee across the street. There’s a book exchange and water...

The bedroom was comfy and clean and we had a warm shower(!!!!) and free coffee in the great cafe luz as promised! We stayed in a massive room with ensuite behind the cafe. This was fine - think main hostel is on other side of street though. I thought it said there was a kitchen for guests' use but I...

The café and tourist office that form part of this hostel provide good food, great service and amazing information on tours and bus times in Esteli. They’re non-profit and the organization supports local families and business people. Location is around the corner from the central park and large supermarket and an 11-12 cordoba taxi ride to the 2 main bus...

The hostel is very clean but it was noisy when we stayed there and a double room with bathroom was $25 dollars. In the town there are many options ranging from about $15 so have a look around. The cafe is great, very friendly and a lot of good food which is a break from the norm in Nicaragua. They...

Our private room here was very clean with a comfortable bed and decent shower. At the time I thought it overpriced but with hindsight accommodation all over nicaragua costs more than I expected. Good book exchange but otherwise none of the little extras that you often get in true hostels. It was a convenient base to visit Miraflor and Tisey,...
