Bigfoot Hostel

Our location is magnificent. We are in the very center of Leon. We are a few minutes away walking from the Cathedral of Leon and Parque Central. In addition other important spots of the city such as Museo De La Revolucion and Iglesia El Calvario are also in reachable walking distance.

We are more than a hostel, it is a complete backpacking experience. Local and traveling volunteer staff are thoroughly trained and dedicated to making this your home away from home, while visiting beautiful and colonial city of Leon, Nicaragua.

Pasar dos semanas en Leon fue una experiencia muy enriquecedora!
Bigfoot está muy bien ubicado, la comida es abundante y rica, el trabajo es variado y motivante.
¡Nunu como anfitriona te recibirá muy bien! Si tienes la suerte de tener un buen grupo de voluntarios seguro la experiencia sera infinitas veces mejor.
Particularmente la gente que trabaja en BigFoot se lleva un pedazo de mi corazon 🧡

People keep talking about a second family that you find there and you can't describe it better or more precisely. I extended my stay at Bigfoot twice because I liked it there so much. I have never seen a more social hostel and it is perfect for solo travellers but also couples or friends. I think this time at Bigfoot was one of the most formative times in my life for my personal development and if I wasn't a bit tied to time I would probably spend years there. But I know one thing for 100%, I will go back!

What a special place this is. Being a part of Bigfoot made my experience in Nicaragua a ten out of ten. The staff are so welcoming and happy to help with any problem. There are activities everyday so you can never be bored, and there are always opportunities to get involved. Volcano boarding and the beach crawl were my highlights. I made so many great friends within the volunteers. Came for the fiesta, and stayed for the family.

Volunteering at Bigfoot is a lot of fun! Definitely a super social/party environment. The beach shuttles/parties are great, and the volcano boarding is iconic. Overall a great experience
