Description via Hostelworld

Hostal El Albergue de León is a genuinely Nicaraguan house where we provide a total immersion in the local culture.
We are the first hostel of Nicaraguan capital and some of the first with more than 12 years of experience.
We promote a sustainable and responsible local tourism that allows you to enjoy our culture in the best way.
An ideal place to relax in a flourishing patio overlooking the artistic mural that describes the city CITY OF LOCOS AND POETS as Leon is known. Here you can learn about the local culture, meet and talk with new friends, practice your Spanish, read a good book (book exchange or book recommendations), play guitar or other musical instruments (we organize chamber concerts or invite local musicians to to interpret the songs of Nicaragua), to recite a poem (nights of poetry), to share their experiences of trip (presentations of photos in our projector or nocturnal conversations ...), to cook a plate of their country or to learn to cook a local, to take a few drinks, playing chess or cards, painting, watching a documentary about Nicaraguan history, taking photos, sitting outside on the rocking chairs (ask at reception) and then going to discover León, Nicaragua.
Many of our guests stay here longer than planned considering The Albergue as the home away from home. We are happy to help you relax, we are a good community, caring and sharing. Of course, we are not perfect, so you can always leave us suggestions at the reception and we will be happy to help.
