A private room was only $20 with a private bathroom. Super plain but comfortable nonetheless. Staff was helpful and friendly, and explained to us that all the profits go to local education on the environment. Pool is very small but clean. Good to just escape from the heat but you can't really swim.

SONATI isn´t just a hostal, it's actually an environmental organisation. Tours and hostal earnings go directly into the interesting projects the do - as for example the construction of a big recycling park and environmental education for kids and adults in schools and outside.

As they moved their location, the pictures shown here are outdated, but no worries, the new house is a open and lighted house in the wide colonial building style, they offer a kitchen, hammocks, free cofee and even a pool!
The rooms are beatiful and fresh as well.
Best choice in Leon!

Thanks for the nice review! We´re so glad that you enjoyed your time with us and appreciated our efforts in the community. It´s guests like you that are the reason we operate this hostel.

One of our volunteers is working on updating all our internet presences, including a brand new webpage and new pictures for the tripadvisor page.

I hope the rest of your travels are full of adventure!

León has just as many hostels, hotels and B&B’s as Granada and it’s slightly cheaper. So you will always find a place to lay your head, and something to fit your budget and style of accommodation. We decided on staying at Sonati Hostel. This chill hostel feels more like a guesthouse you share with other people. It has plenty of communal space, a big shared kitchen and a pleasant garden area with hammocks and chairs to laze about.

The rooms and bathrooms are clean, staff is nice and helpful. The hostel offers tours and hikes in the area, and organizes volunteer opportunities with local organizations. Best of all profits go toward local environmental and educational projects. It’s also centrally located. They gave us our own private room with shared bath for $14! Sweet!

We´re so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! We´ve moved locations (two blocks down the street) since you stayed with us. Now we have a smaller garden... but we have a pool! Hope to see you again at our new location!

Sonati was a nice break after staying in doggy hostels full of noise and party people. I slept in two other hostels in Leon (including famous Big Foot) but Sonati was the only place i felt like home (there are even 2 cats wandering around). The stuff is exceptionally nice and helpful. What i loved the best is the fact that this is NON PROFIT organisation and all the income goes to their Sonati Environmental Charity.

the bonus is central location and very good prices, i can truly recommend it as the best place to stay in Leon!

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us! Since your stay we moved to a new location just two blocks west on the same street (which is even closer to the parque central). Our new location now has a pool, but still the same low prices! We hope to see you at our new location!
