sonati is a super sweet place to hang around in nicaragua's student city leon.
not only that the staff is very lovely, they use your money to support social projects in leon and a natural reserve near el sauce. e.g. they teach school kids about how to do something useful out of garbage or how not to support wild animal traffic worldwide.
the hostel is located near the central plaza but nice and quietly in a less frequented street. there are round about 4 dorms, perfect for you and your backpacker friends, but some private rooms too (just in case you get in touch with a hot chica while dancing at the near "camaleon"). the beds are super comfy and there are some hamocks in the beautiful patio to chill out.
furthermore they offer many different tours to nearby volcanos or natural reserves, a city history tour or the cheapest volcano-boarding trip in town (totally true: there's a tour, attending it they pick you up, make you climb a totally black volcano, tell you some facts about geography and earthquakes and in the end you will go down the volcano on a special "snow-"board, totally worth the dust :D)
