The El Zopilote Hostel and Permaculture Farm is a backpackers hostel and a permaculture farm at the same time. We offer various types of hospitality like private rooms, dormitories, camping areas and hammocks. We organise many activities like free yoga , permaculture courses, cacao ceremonies, volcanoes tours, massages , workshops and lots of other activities. We have a vegetarian and vegan farm to table restaurant open all day and Tue and Sat we have Pizza night party, with fire shows, dancing, natural cocktails and fun. We are in the Nicaraguan Ometepe Island, in the area of Santa Cruz / Madronal, in the Maderas volcano, one km before Balgue. We are located near to some of the best and finest attractions of the area such as Volcano Maderas, Volcano Concepcion and Playa Santa Cruz, amongst other interesting spots of our location. The farm is 300m from the main road and that keep the place an oasis of peace... We have various types of hospitality on offer. Private rooms, dormitories, camping areas and hammocks are situated in various locations on the farm. Everything has been built or planned to be immersed in the natural environment and to respect it greatly. Our great variety of choices means that our hospitality is accessible to all kinds of people and budgets. The hostel is located in a slope and there is always some breeze that keeps the rooms naturally fresh and ventilated so we don't need to waist energy in using fans and definitely no air conditioner. Bring a flash light for the night, there are lights in all the huts but the footpaths that connect them have few lights to keep the habitat more natural.

    I looooved El Zopilote and actually came back for a second stay. The atmosphere is nice and the things you can do here like free yoga every morning and different workshop are amazing! The concept & venue are beautiful and even if you have to walk to your dorm a couple of minutes it’s trough beautiful nature so I don’t know why people are complaining. The food is tasty - portions a little small sometimes but it‘s definitely ok and the fact they grow everything themselves makes it even nicer.

    You need to hike up for like 5-10min. It's an easy walk tho. Staff is really friendly, food is self grown and made and just super good (many many vegan options!!), there are a lot of offered activities (such as free yoga, Pizza or Jam night, etc.) and bookable tours to the volcanos, riding or renting a motorcycle. The view from the eating and chill area in the green jungle us just amazing. Possibility to charge your phone and WiFi is only available in that area too but I got along.

    El Zopilote is a really cool hippyish hostel/eco-permaculture farm on Ometepe Island, high up in the jungle (be prepared for a hike up with your bags from busstop).There's soo many things in offer at hostel that it's hard to leave to Explore the Island.Didn't Quote understand why you have to put your valuables to Reception when the iron Lickers in dorms also look Quite sturdy.Made me forget my powerbank in reception safe

    It‘s a cool place, the activities and the vibes are great but you cannot cook your own meals and the dorm was not that clean. Things are a bit chaotic and the last night i didn‘t even have a blanket in my hammock. Still the atmosphere is pretty amazing, i would go there again!

    Der durch die Lage im Dschungel schwierige Anstieg zum Hostel hat sich sehr gelohnt! Es war super interessant, in einem richtigen Eco-Hostel zu wohnen und besonders die gratis Tour durch die Permakultur-Farm hat uns gefallen, weil man daraus so viel mitnehmen konnte! Ich hätte vorher nicht gedacht, dass es so schwierig für die Besitzer war/ist, diesen Ort zu erschaffen. Das Yoga war ebenfalls sehr schön und die Fullmoon-Party ein echtes Highlight! Schade nur, dass man nicht selbst kochen kann.

    Wer lange und in der Nacht stockdunkle Wege schätzt, gerne einmal ein Kompostscheisshaus ausprobieren möchte und an jeden Busch pissen will, WLAN und fliessendes Wasser im Zimmer nicht vermisst und gerne grasrauchend in linker Gesellschaft sitzt, der ist hier am richtigen Ort. Günstig ist es auf jeden Fall.

    Staff was unfriendly, extremely slow and incompetent. This hostel tries very hard to be ecological and every little this HAS to be sustainable. It’s a nice approach, but in my opinion it’s all a little bit too much. When it’s so sticky in the dorms that no one could sleep and there’s no fans (because they want to reduce electricity) it’s just annoying. And then there’s cameras in the dorms? What sense is that? The compost toilet is also kind of disgusting. Restaurant Food was more than dry.

    Das Hostel hat mich leider sehr enttäuscht. Wir hatten das Gefühl, dass man nicht wirklich willkommen ist, wenn man keine Dreadlocks oder Batikhosen anhat. Das Essen im Restaurant ist gut aber es gibt keine Küche. Ich musste in einem schmutzigen Bett schlafen obwohl ich die Rezeption zwei mal darauf hingewiesen habe. Die Scooter, die uns vermittelt wurden sind beide liegen geblieben. Ich habe mich nicht wohl gefühlt und würde niemandem den Aufenthalt empfehlen
