About this listing
Come and join us in an idyllic spot only a few minutes from the center of Leon. You will can chill out in a peaceful surroundings while drinking a cocktail near the swimming pool and enjoy a warm and friendly atmosphere.
We are waiting for you!
Hostal Mariposa is a lovely place, run by the even more lovely, Eric and Véronique. The place is secluded enough to have a peaceful time, but also close enough to Leon and the 2 beaches (Poneloya & Las Peñitas) to go about, as you please.
The photos are current and the place description is in point, which made it all the better.
The private cabaña has an amazing bathroom, which is dreamy and beautiful.
The food was good, even though a bit over-priced in reference to the quality and amount. (We bought a curry dinner with shrimps for 260C -or so- and the plate was small, plus the shrimp were tiny. In comparison to the 250C plate of LARGE grilled shrimp we got at the beach town of Las Peñitas, only 15 mins away by car).
Besides that, Veronique and Eric did everything possible to make our stay, a fantastic one. From booking tours and massages, to provide recommendations of places to visit, they were so helpful and nice. Cannot recommend them enough.
We wanted to stay for more nights, but sadly they were full so we could only stay for one night. The bungalows and the hostel in general are great! The bungalow felt really luxurious. Everything looks really nice and clean, the food is good and Veronique and Eric are very nice. I would certainly recommend staying at Mariposa
Great place, we booked a cabin with a terrific bathroom, super clean and comfortable, best bed & pillows and towels and we've had in Nicaragua so far!
Garden setting is peaceful and natural, the hosts are very attentive.
Yummy breakfast is huge for the minimal cost,
The stay at Hostel Mariposa was a perfect way to start our stay in Nicaragua. Severine organised a taxi to pick us up at the airport and take us straight to the accommodation, eliminating any hassle we had in getting there. The little bungalow was beautiful and as my parents said it looked like paradise, breakfast was also great and at a good price. Would stay there again in an instant.
What a wonderful place!! Hostal Mariposa is a great place to relax, and explore. The hosts could not be more helpful, welcoming and gracious. Clean, safe, good food. Great all around.
What a wonderful welcome we received from Severine and her husband. We felt at home immediately.
The crepes were fantastic as was the baguettes. Beautiful little property, quiet and clean, we enjoyed our stay.
