We LOVED this hotel! We booked a private room by the pool, and the entire facility was absolutely beautiful! BEAUTIFUL! Our rate for the room included breakfast which was always delicious. The pool was awesome. Our room was VERY comfortable. We didn't use the AC which cost a little more, so that was a little toasty but manageable with fans...

This is the best somewhat undiscovered "hostel" I have ever stayed in. Original art and artistic furniture throughout this large re-done colonial home. Comfortable, clean, spacious, and quiet. Excellent hammock and small pool in the open patio. Walking distance to anywhere you would like to go. Friendly and helpful staff - one of them is working hard on improving his...

I came to Granada for business. The usual places I stay were full so I stayed at the Backpackers Inn, in a private room. I had met the owner previously and the property is beautiful. However, my cash and credit card were taken from my locked hotel room. I stayed in a private room in front of the pool. The...

We run a quality boutique hostel oriented to serve our guests and provide the best experience possible, with honest and committed workers who have been with us for over six years with an IMPECABLE RECORD, since we opened. THIS ALLEGED BEHAVIOR DOES NOT OCCUR IN OUR ESTABLISHMENT, and you may LOOK AT THE RESTO OF 100 COMMENTS ON TRIPADVISOR to...

The Backpackers Inn is SPECTACULAR! We have fallen head over heels in love with this hotel and have so enjoyed our time here. The staff has been so wonderful and have become friends over the nights that we have stayed. They have been helpful, kind, courteous, and so very welcoming. We are travelling with 2 kids (4 and 7 years...

This is a highly attractive colonial hotel with comfortable rooms and many recreation areas such as a billiard room, reading/coffee room, swimming pool, communal kitchen, communal terraces. It's not exactly dedicated to backpackers, although they do appear once in a while, the price is right; it's much more elegant and spacious than such a name would suggest, even though it...

This is by far my favorite spot in Granada and consistently offers great and personal service, clean rooms, delicious breakfasts, wifi and privacy. I prefer the private rooms with AC/fans and TV. As my work takes me to extremely rural areas this has become my base in the Granada/Masaya/Rivas area. The staff are welcoming and hospitable. I have colleagues who...

What say when the Sunday cook/ reception desk person/ person in charge cooks your breakfast, serves you , sits and talks with you as you eat and gives you a hug goodbye when she leaves later in the day, beautiful rooms, exquisite courtyards, sunshine on the pool, waking to Church Bells and wonder why you talk in whispers -because the...

The Backpacker's Inn was the best kept hostel in Nicaragua! A bit more expensive than usual ($35/night for twin room with shared bathrooms) but we needed a treat after a not so nice night in another hostel not too far away. This is as far removed from a party hostel as you can get. The setting is colonial scrumptiousness at...

I have stayed I hostels all over the world and this place is ranked in my top 3 overall. From the beds, the court yard, the pool, the staff and the atmosphere, this place kills it.
