    Frequently asked questions

    You arrive by bus? You will arrive at the bus terminal del Norte which is confusingly in the south of Estelí. It is a 15 to 20 minute walk to the hostel and it is absolutely safe to walk it. At the bus station take a right on the Pan-American Highway and follow the street for 12 blocks. Once you see the Sinsa on the left go another one and a half blocks down the road, turn left to the Calle 2 NE and walk one block. We are on the left side. For 12 Cordobas (20 Cordobas at night) you can get a taxi and tell them the address: Sonati, De la esquina NE de la Catedral, trés cuadras al Este. Find us on Google Maps
    Yes, all of the hostel profits go to the environmental program. We founded SONATI as a self-sustainable organization and work like that since.

    Nicaragua is considered the safest country in Central America. Nicaragua has the lowest reported crime rate (lower than in Germany, France or the U.S.). INCAE (the Harvard Business school affiliate in Nicaragua), INTERPOL, and the Inter-American Institute on Human Rights place Managua as the safest capital in the region, and Nicaragua as the safest country in Central America and among the safest countries in the world. As with travel anywhere valuables should be locked at the hostel. Travelers should always be aware of the situations around them, carry as little money as possible and keep money and valuables hidden from potential pickpockets.
    Estelí is the Nicaraguan capital of tobacco and also has a lot to offer. The city is in the middle of the wild north, very close to many nature reserves.
