Stayed only one night. Funky dorm with lovely mural but no windows. In the ceiling there were some type of openings to outside, but they were annoying in the morning when the sun shone right in. Wonderful other areas though.
Good place but the doorbell is way too loud, it can be heard throughout the entire hostel and wake you up at any time that people may come back. Also despite the hostel's policy of no noise after 12:00 a.m the staff was often up washing clothes until about 2:00 a.m, very annoying since I stayed in the room right beside the kitchen.
Stayed three nights at Casa Quimbaya. Echoing other reviews, the staff are VERY friendly and helpful. Location is convenient, though surrounding restaurants are mainly fast-food. CQ's restaurant has tasty food (a bit pricey) and great music (live and recorded). The main downside - the facilities. Had a private room with windows that were blocked by styrofoam, making it dark and stuffy (and a fire hazard?). The double bed foam mattress was AWFULLY soft; shower water got cold at peak time.

We only stayed one night, in a double bedroom. It was ok. Nice Hostel, nice staff.
The staff is amazing the two brothers are sweet
This place is a cool hostel. Unfortunately, it is in a city where there's not a whole lot to do and not a whole lot of people coming through looking to stay in a hostel...at least not in October. But worth the night and I suggest going to Buenavista for a coffee tour or just have a cup of coffe at Cafe San Alberto's.
This was a pretty good hostel to stay at, not amazing but it did the trick. They have live music and a bar downstairs wed-saturday, which was definitely a plus. The biggest downside is to be honest, there isn't much to do in Armenia. I would recommend staying somewhere else in the coffee region, like Salento instead, a close hour long trip away, which is off the beaten path and home to a beautiful hike with the tallest palm trees in the world.
The owners and the rest of the staff at Casa Quimbaya hostel really made me feel like part of family. Truly warm and kind people. The Casa Quimbaya Cafe had amazing food, great cocktails, live music and friendly / welcoming staff. I would recommend this hostel to all and I will hopefully return again one day. Thank you for everything.
Only one shower at this hostel! Dorm had no window and it was quite hot without a fan or a/c. It also lacked power points to charge your electronics in the room.
