Our family of four stayed here in one of the private rooms with a bath. The service was so friendly and the breakfast was a great addition. Very chill atmosphere in a beautiful setting where you can walk to town.

This place is awesome. For the price ($50) we got a HUGE room with private bathroom and terrace. Everything very clean. Great breakfast in the morning (included in price) and bar with honor system ($1 a beer). Great chill out area with games, books and DVDs.

The rooms are spacious and are kept meticulously clean by the staff. The owners and manager are very friendly, welcoming, and unbelievably helpful - they were able to answer all our questions and arrange scooter rentals, etc. quickly on very short notice. We also found them to be extremely accommodating in dealing with unforeseen circumstances. The breakfasts they serve are... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and we both wish we could have extended our stay. The rooms were very clean and spacious and the grounds were so beautiful.

We stayed for three nights. Rooms are spacious and clean. Every morning we had a complementary breakfast with fresh fruit and eggs, loved it. Javier is one of the managers and is willing to help you with everything, tours, transport, etc. So if you are planning to stay on Ometepe, think of this place!

Myself and one other backpacker stayed here for 3 nights. After getting off the ferry it's only a 5-10 minute walk. Ometepe is a surprisingly large island so this location is a real bonus. The staff here are superb, probably the friendliest and most informative I've encountered in Nicaragua. It's also a great base for tours and to rent scooters,... More

This place is more like a hostel than a hotel. However, aside from shared dorm rooms, they do have several individual rooms, which can accommodate at least two people each. The room is basic but spacious and clean. The shower/toilet are shared. There are also "bungalows" for which I think do have private bathroom. The reception/dining area is in the... More

We stayed here for one night in Ometepe and we wished we'd had time to stay longer. The hostel is run by a really friendly, laid back and helpful family. They were welcoming and trusting, even offering an honesty system for buying drinks. The hostel is situated about a ten minute walk form the main town which means that you... More
