Very pleasant stay. Rooms were clean. Air conditioner and cable worked perfectly. Beds were comfy. Breakfast was tasty (pancakes & eggs one day and gallo pinto and eggs the next). My only thought would be for them to have more staff that spoke english and that were more helpful with suggesting navigating to local restaurants.

Where we stayed
We had a private room in Casa Ivana which is a hostel located a few blocks from the city centre. The place was extremely basic but was a fairly good price ...
... down to Granada.
I had been debating how long to spend in Leon. Originally it was just the two nights, but I was considering doing one of the half day trips, hiking on the volcanos or something similar. Unfortuately few people had signed up to any of the trips and unless they have sufficient numbers, they do not go ahead. With that in mind, I decided to stick to the original plan and explore the town and move on tomorrow.
Luckily I had brought a couple ...
