Hostal Azul Reviews

Hostel Azul is a clean and modern, new hostel located near the centre of Granada. The hostel is clean and modern on the inside, with new furnishings set out in a bohemian style with a courtyard.

The Location

Hostal Azul is located very close to the main city centre in Granada. Everything is accessible by foot. The central park is only two minutes away; the supermarket and market are a ten-minute walk. The bus terminal for Managua is just around the corner from the hostel and all other bus terminals can be accessed by foot, as Granada is very small.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms are fairly modern with new beds. The mattresses are clean and comfy. The bathroom attached to each dorm also has modern fittings. Private rooms are also available. The dorms have a large fan on the ceiling, which helps circulate air, but the dorms are very hot and could do with additional fans to circulate more air around the room.

The bathrooms are also fairly new, but they are quite dark and can get damp due to poor ventilation. However, the shower has good pressure when in operation. Each dorm room has its own en suite bathroom, so usually there is not much waiting time to use one.

Common Spaces

There is one main common area, which centres around the courtyard. There are several hammocks available for use and a large table where you can eat and drink. The hostel does have Wi-Fi equipped by the reception but it is often slow, potentially due to a lot of users.

There is a very small kitchen and sink available that can be used by guests, but only for small meals. Breakfast is included and changes every day to give you a nice variety. There is also free coffee available throughout the day for guests.


This is a new, clean, and modern hostel set in the heart of Granada. Whilst it is new, it could do with a few adjustments to make it even more comfortable in the hot Nicaraguan heat. However, the dorm rooms are spacious and the courtyard is nice and open, which gives a nice feel to the hostel. The staff also speak good English and Spanish to help with any problems you might have in Granada.

Hostal Azul Reviews from the Web

Lovely hostel, friendly staff and feel and great free breakfast


Really cool hostel in the center of Granada, around the corner from the church and the staff is super lovely and fun!


Great vibes and perfect location. They do nightly events like free pasta, trivia, or game nights so it's easy to meet other travelers. Nice hammocks in the courtyard with free tea/coffee, and a rotating free breakfast every morning! Met so many authentic people here, since it's much more intimate than Oasis (which is more for party/rager types). This was my favorite hostel of my Nicaragua trip!


Love love loved this hostel!! Probably our favourite hostel of the whole trip- the staff were so friendly, I felt like they really cared about our well-being and us having a good time. Our private room felt like a hotel and everything was super clean.

Also so many perks- free dinner twice a week, breakfast that changes every day, free tea & coffee, and just a nice outdoor area to chill out in.

This isnt a party hostel at all (esp compared to boca/townhouse etc) but still has a really nice vibe and is soc


Such a calm and gentle hostel, the owners are friendly and we all had dinner together on the first night we arrived. It is clean and well air-conditioned. Such a perfect hostel for those looking to relax and recharge. The outside area is nice and all the workers were so kind. The breakfast is perfect and the free dinners is delicious too. I really enjoyed my stay here and would definitely come back.


Me and my boyfriend stayed in this hostel for 2 weeks so can confirm it is the perfect base for your stay. Good location, close to the main square and attractions. There's a social, yet relaxed vibe- equally easy to chill or socialise. The free breakfast changes daily and is delicious! Daily activities such as games night, movie night and salsa lessons. Staff are really friendly and attentive. Good kitchen. Clean bathrooms. WIFI is strong- I work remotely so this was important for me. 10/10.


Staying in Hostel Azul was a great choice for my time in Granada!! The Hostel is central, calm and organized :) the owners are beyond friendly and really blend into the group, so it feels more like staying with friends. The location is great and central to a multiple things, further the breakfast is varying everyday - including options + the opportunity to make it vegan at any time - which is something you do not get in any hostel! The program provided is great too and the staff goes beyond to make everyone


Great stay at hostal Azul. The hostel puts a lot of effort into making your stay the best in Granada.

The dorm rooms are super spacious, beds are comfortable and large.

Quiet after 11pm, there is a beautiful central courtyard with banana plants and hammocks around.

Hostal is near the market, the plaza, bars and restaurants (5 mins walk).

Free breakfast which changes everyday, welcome drink, activities every night, free dinners etc.

Staff are amazing and friendly, would definitely return!


Really good place tp stay. The dorms were very beautiful, staff very friendly and breakfast was really tasty (and included). Chill vibe. One of the best hostels so far.


Wow!! El hostal est sper lindo y muy limpio, los dueos y el staff es muy lindo adems est sper bien ubicado y cerca del centro, tienen muchsimas actividades todos los das.


Very nice hostel in the center of Granada. Talked with owners doing an excellent job based on their own travel and hostel experience. Good luck !


A really nice hotel, there was a pretty good vibe there. Through the hostal you could book all types of trips and excursions. Beds were not that comfortable, felt the wood underneath the mattress all the time. It was more than a correct hostal.


Such a great hostel! Good wifi, perfect hostal vibes (chill, no parties but easy to meet people.amd hang out). The breakfast are included and so very good. One of the owners there was such a sweet and lovely woman. Only complaint is the lack of A/C and the poor ventilation in the rooms, but the private rooms are lovely nevertheless.

Had a great stay here!


Denise is a wonderful host and very welcoming. Very close to the city centre. Free breakfast was awesome. Great spot !


Is a nice hostal to chill, however no atmosphere at all, special events did not even go on


Good hostel, could do with slightly better bathroom or at least be sure to check that toilets are working each day. Bar staff weren't the friendliest but cleaner staff were lovely.


Hostel Azul made our stay in Granada. Denise, Mar and all the staff are so committed to making their guests feel at home. They organise activities - we took part in the walking tour, food crawl and salsa classes, all of which we enjoyed so much! The breakfasts are lovely and you get a choice which is so nice! 10/10 for hostel Azul


Friendly staff, nice breakfast and fan on the bed. But the dorms are only for travelers who do not bother about comfort. Beds are worn out and the air is very stuffy.
