Hostelz.com's Review
The Landing Hotel is conveniently located, clean, and comfortable. It is a great place to stay in Ometepe if you are just going to explore the local attractions around the Moyogalpa area. If you are looking at exploring other parts of the island, it may be a little bit too far away as it takes approximately three hours one way on a bus to the other side of the island.

The Location

The Landing Hotel is located just a short walk up from where the boats dock in Moyogalpa on the island of Ometepe. Moyogalpa is one of the largest towns on the island and as such you will find most of your amenities that you will need during your stay on Ometepe within close proximity from the hostel such as pharmacies, restaurants, and convenience stores. It is also close to Volcan Concepciones if you decide that you would like to take up the challenge of hiking this and it can be done from Moyogalpa in one day.

Rooms and Bathrooms

They have a lot of different types of rooms here in The Landing Hotel. They have standard dorm rooms, which have comfortable beds and linen in them, with shared bathrooms and toilets that reside outside of the room. If you are traveling in a group, it is possible to rent out apartments with dorm type beds in them, a self-contained bathroom, and a makeshift kitchen area with no facilities except a sink. The bathrooms are kept clean and well maintained, as are the rooms.

Common Spaces

The main common area in The Landing Hotel is the large bar and restaurant area in the front of the hostel as you enter. Here you can order drinks and food and sit around and relax at the tables. They also have a garden area out the back where you can chill out and relax in a more earthy environment. All of the rooms are located surrounding these central common spaces so there is good security from the staff that work there and they are always around if you need any help during your stay here.


It is not an overly social hostel so it may be difficult to meet people here and it is not one of the more common hostels for backpackers, but it is quiet and subdued if that is what you are looking for.

4   Decent place with nice staff Respectable facilities that are unique in several aspects. "Good" by world standards, perhaps a bit higher relative to Nicaraguan norms. The town is nothing special, but can serve as a base to the rest of island by bike or motorcycle. As the photos show, they have a nice front lobby and upper deck relax area.  ()
