Anyone planning to stay in Managua on a slim budget should try Guest House Santos, Barrio Martha Quezada. The low quality is compensated by the low cost, around $9 per night, and the interesting crowd that usually stays there. The place is surrounded by low cost places to eat and drink as well as a number of Internet cafes, and is very near the international bus station. The barrio itself is a run down part of Managua and has a reputation for being dangerous at night.
Other places to visit in Nicaragua are San Carlos which is a small chaotic town where most people stop over night before travelling to El Castillo down the Rio San Juan, which is also a must for any visitor to Nicaragua. A real paradise. I read A Nicaraguan Journey: Memories from the Land of Sandino before I visited Nicaragua. It gave me a good background to the country and helped me decide where to visit when I got there.
One block north and 1 1/2 blocks west of Tica Bus, Barrio Martha Quezada

Managua despite its reputation is probably the safest city in Nicaragua.
While it lacks the attractions of colonial towns like Granada, it still has enough to keep any visitor interested for 24 hours.
