I spent a night at Sonati hostel and had a great time with my fellow travelers. I travel with my ukulele and upon entering I found a couple of people picking some tunes on a guitar. The guitar belongs to the hostel and anyone is welcome to use it. We jammed for a few hours. It was a very nice...

We stayed in a reasonably priced dorm room for 2 nights and it was great. Nice communal space, a fully stocked and clean kitchen for guest use. But above all, the staff was so friendly and spoke really good English. We had to deal with an injury and attend the hospital, the front desk girl (I wish I had gotten...

My second time staying with Sonati. I really like this hostel because it is quiet, offers exciting outdoor trips, and supports local environmental causes. I did two tours with them, and found the tours (and the local guides) to be wonderful. The kitchen in this sonati is very well equipped, and there is a beautiful garden with hammocks and chairs....

we found this hostel to be welcoming and in line with the price of the rooms, in terms of service, cleanliness, common areas, etc. It is well located in Esteli, allowing you to discover the town on foot. The one thing we did not like was how noisy the Oropendola private room (on the street) was. Even though it is...

Really fantastic hostel, in a great location. Unlike many hostels that advertise a kitchen this one is actually clean and big and well equipped enough to be usable. Rooms are spacious and they had some lovely common areas. The trips they organised were also really great. Only possible downside is that the wifi was bit patchy from time to time,...

There is really not much wrong with this hostel, it is just not amazing. They offer a variety of tours and they do a lot of work with the local communities and especially local school kids.

“Some of the rooms with private bathroom actually share the bathroom with a dorm, so be sure to ask if it matters to you. I think those are less expensive, if you don't mind people accidentally locking you out of the bathroom once in awhile!”
