I stayed at this so called party hostel for a few nights. Its no party hostel. It was dead. I didn't mind since I'm cool with a bit of peace and quiet. The owner, I forget his face, seem uninterested in my presence so I reciprocated the feeling. The room's decent but the lockers are a joke. You can easily... More

I think for most people, the Chili Inn is a great place to stay. However; my boyfriend and I stayed in a 'private' room which was supposed to also have a private bathroom, but the employees always used it and also some of the other guests as well (it's not directly connected to the room). Not a horrible thing to... More

The Chilli Inn seemed like a party hostel so i decided to stay in one of their private rooms around the corner, which the staff said were quiet. I was happy with my room, until I noticed the shared bathroom was located in my room, with only the lower half separated by a wall. In other words, I could literally... More

I stayed at Chilli Inn for 6 nights in August. I popped into at least 3 other hostels in Leon before this one, looking for a great place to stay since it was my last stop in Nicaragua. I decided to stay there because I was drawn to the pool and open concept set up. The price was cheap, and... More

It is supposed to be one of the party hostels in leon but I was the only guest there ( I went there on a Monday, probably I should have slept there during the weekend). Staff was ok, not really interested in me.. rooms were clean but a bit shabby. Food was really good, pool was dirty!

I came to Chilli Inn with the intention of staying a few days and ended up leaving after 2 months. Like only a rare few hostels in Central America, Chilli Inn has that special vibe that makes you never want to leave. The hostel staff are all genuinely great people who are always up for a party and they put... More
