We were desperate to find somewhere that could satisfy our dreams of empty, idyllic beaches and waves that wouldn't swallow us up whole. After wandering along a dusty road we discovered it at Nicawaves - our surf camp for the week.
A small family-run hostel that is a lovely quiet place to base yourself during your stay in Granada.
If Monkey House charged what it was worth, this hostel would have been one of our favourites in Central America. We looked at every accommodation option in Gigante, and this is still probably the one we'd recommend, but this would be through very gritted teeth as we just felt like we were being taken for a ride.
Veteran of the Ometepe hostel scene, Hospedaje Central attracts a variety of travellers. Some of the rooms need an upgrade to justify the price but we have paid more for less elsewhere on our travels.
