If you are looking for an inexpensive, decent accommodation the hostel is the right choice. Down side - at the time of my stay: the Sonati staff/volunteers had fully occupied the place and made others feel like undesired intruders. No big deal, just walk around the corner and hang around with friendly travel folks at the bars of other hostels. Really negative: promoted day tours finally did not take place. Explanation: "We have own staff participating and would need more regular payers to finance the trips." At least they were honest... My advice: book your tours straight away at one of the real tour operators in town. Last: There is no bar or snack service at the Sonati. In the kitchen one had to pack everything very well because of the ants. Anyway the staff will throw away your food after three days in the fridge or cabinet as a standard rule. Overall the hostel offers simple, plain accommodation. Guess it makes more fun if you come with your own friends to hang around in the yard.
