Sometimes all you need is a bed and fun surf. If you can navigate your own way and are excited to meet some new friends, our beachfront Surf Hostel Nicaragua – El Transito is a great choice. While you won’t have access to SOLID’s all-inclusive surf camp property or the Bed + Breakfast, you’ll have beachfront accommodations, free coffee and wi-fi, a full-service bar and a communal kitchen. The town of El Transito and our relaxing surf hostel have been known to capture a few, so don’t be surprised if you come for two days but stay for two weeks!

The beachfront surf hostel is a secured compound in El Transito with three rooms (5-6 beds each), three baths and access to a communal kitchen. We offer clean, dorm style rooms that have a lot of sunlight and the hostel is located directly in front of the most consistent surf break in the region. There is a beachfront rancho, a full-service bar, a ton of hammock areas and a fire pit to enjoy.

In order to reach our goal of aiding in economic development throughout town, we have curated a menu (order at the bar) of specialty meals from various amazing woman cooks in town. Furthermore, we encourage our clients to explore the community by visiting any of the local restaurants in town (Olas Clandestines, Caracola Cafe, and Veronicas).

After experiencing the town of El Transito, many have been known to want to help out and volunteer thus we provide volunteer opportunities with our local community partners Nicaragua Initiative for Community Advancement and El Transito Centro de Artes. We also offer discounts for every person who takes time to volunteer in any of these programs.

While we don’t provide transport from the airport since it is easy to get a taxi at any time, we do provide transport from town as there is no local taxi service.

Note: Please bring cash since there are no local ATM’s and we are cash only on site!
