The staff at the hostal go above and beyond to help you no matter what your query! The rooms are clean and comfortable. The communal space is lovely with full kitchen facilities, hammocks, a pool table, darts and games.

We found Casa Ivana well organized and the 4 bed dorm we stayed in was very clean. The staff were fantastic - we got great advice and on the last day they helped me get my cap back after I left it in a tour van.

Truly a great place to stay! I stayed at Hostal Casa Ivana for the month of October. It is a really quiet and chilled out hostel, housed in a colonial style building. The prices are also very competitive in comparison to others in Leon. Located next to the Theatre in a quiet street but just a 5 minute walk from...

Location is great - right in the heart of Leon but without all the noise! Friendly and very helpful staff. Fully-equipped kitchen to cook. Rooms comes with a good fan so that even on a hot night, you don't feel the heat so much. Free pool table and little garden to chill in after a long day of sightseeing!

It was also very affordable and definitely our favourite of the two places we stayed in Leon. Would recommend staying. P.s. This hostel doesn't have a water filter and, although...

Aware of the party hostels, we were looking for a quieter place, and Casa Ivana fits that bill. Location is really fine, Wi-Fi is great, it's clean and it feels reasonably spacious. There is a kitchen area with fridge and stove, along with free coffee all day long, although you might need to rewash the dishes before using them. There...
