My friends and I stayed at Bigfoot for New Year and had the best time! Staff were super friendly and the beach party was well organised and a great laugh. As this was our first stop in Nicaragua we were not sure what to expect but we felt safe at all times and recommend visiting

Did the volcano boarding through them and wasn't disappointed. However, you don't have to stay at the hostel to do it. You can also come party here without staying here, so it might make sense to book an airbnb or some sheet and just come for the party and volcano boarding. When

This hostel was evidently scarred by recent events in Nicaragua, however the country is now completely and utterly safe. I would strongly recommend that you book into BigFoot hostel as it offers the BEST volcano tour in the city and were also the inventors. The hostel has free

They also offer a day tour to Telica if there are at least 4 ppl who will join the Tour. When I was there there were not enough people going on the tour so they organized for me to go with a different company, which worked out fine.

Hi Alison Taking the shuttle is the easiest and safest way to travel. The trip takes about 16 hours and leaves every second day at 2am from Antigua (this weekend on sunday 21st at 2am). The drivers speak english and they do the boarder crossing for you. The vans are very comfortable and have wifi and AC. The price is $80 a person. Please contact us trough our homepage to make a reservation! Hope to see you soon @ Bigfoot

"Get the one without bed bugs!!! JK LOL"
"If you are looking for privacy books a single room. Our room had 12 plus people in it and it was pretty full every night."
"Get a room with AC if you can budget the $3-$4 more."
"Rent a private room"
"AC dorms don't have fans, so if you want to chill in the room through the day - get a fan dorm."
USD 10 - USD 15 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
