Nice Dutch owner. The place is chill to hangout at. The room was a little dusty when I put on the van. Other than that is was clean and we enjoyed our stay of 2 nights. Close to the centre, so really good location.

Instead of the originally planned 2 days we spent more than a week in Hostal Casa Ivana and enjoyed it a lot. The location of the hostel is perfect – all the tourist attractions are located within walking distance (e.g. the plaza central and the cathedral is 5 min by walking). Though the room we stayed in is a little...

We only stayed a couple of nights but our hosts made a lasting impression. 24h reception which helped as we arrived late at 1am! No issues checking in. Very friendly & helped us book a volcano boarding tour which was fantastic (small group, which we liked). Let us borrow towels & use the shower when we got back (we'd checked...

Yes, we are not difficult. You have to check out at 11 am, but you can always put your bags at the reception. You are allowed to use the bathroom and drink free coffee. No problem for us. We work with a local Tour operator. They are really good. They work with small groups and they can tell a lot...

When booked in it was a little confusing for the lady's at reception, soon sorted. Our room was basic but comfortable and as others have said hot. This was our main dilemma, close the windows and overheat or open the windows and be attacked by noise.We were in the triple room at the back and at 7am the cleaners came...

We stayed for two nights in a dorm room. We checked in at 4am due to a very long shuttle bus trip from Honduras. Lester was up, and despite it being 4am he was very friendly and welcoming. In the morning he made sure we knew about the area and gave us some good ideas for a nice day out....

We booked the private room here and would not recommend at all. The room was tiny and was advertised as being a double bed with a single bunk bed. It was not that - so small. Toilet and "shower" was tiny and the previous guests toiletries were left behind with the bin un-emptied. Under the bed was a lot of...

Really good hostel. We stayed in the dorm room and had a nice experience. Cheap prices, staff was very friendly, place was clean and tidy and they have a well equiped kitchen. Common area is very chill with the hammocks. Very recommended.

Thanks for your review. At this moment we have the cheapest price for the Dorms in Leon. There are sleeping max. 5 people in the Dorms. We are located in a quiet neighborhood only two blocks from the Central Park. Our staff is really doing their best to clean the hostel as good as possible. We are happy that you...

Casa Ivana is located close to the Parque Central, which makes it a perfect base for your daily activities in and around León. We stayed there for six nights - we originally booked four nights, but decided to stay a little longer - and enjoyed our stay. Wether you're adventurous and go hiking or volcanoboarding, just exploring beautiful León or...
