Paradise in Villa de Leyva! Within easy walking distance of the centre of town and far enough away to create an oasis of calm and tranquility. Gorgeous garden and free taxi for your arrival! Villa de Leyva is quite well-heeled and expensive and this is reflected by the hostel food prices but the dishes are very good! (There are also cheap local places in town). The staff are fantastic! They make what is a great location feel like a home from home. Town is great for (free) day treks.


Overall - very beautiful hostel with a relaxed atmosphere, good breakfast, reasonably comfortable dorms. But it definitely goes to bed early and rises early; the office selling water/beer/etc. closes at 10 pm, and maintenance was in my room at 9 am (I was still in bed). Guests considering this hostel should know that taxis from town don't run after 8 pm., and that lockers for valuables are inaccessible after the office closes at 10 pm.


Great value for the money. Staff is very attentively and helpful. 20 minutes walking distance into city center but therefor very quiet and relaxed. Secure parking for my motorcycle no problem. Would choos it again anytime! Would be great to have a chair and a key for each bed.


Great location , very clean and a great base from which to explore the region.


Loved my stay here! Location is not right in town but this is what provided the charm and tranquility- and it's only 15mins max walk. There's a trek behind the hostel up a big hill to see the views- SO nice. They have a restaurant with delicious dinner meals (didn't try the breakfast). Gratis tea and coffee all day, excellent clean large kitchen for self service- good gas. Big clean bathrooms with great showers. Only negative was my bed in the 4 bed dorm was very creaky! But bed made everyday.


We were stunned with how wonderful Hostel Renacer was. It was more like a spa than a hostel. It was totally relaxing, absolutely beautiful, and of great value. If we were to return to Colombia Hostel Renacer would be a specific place we would be sure to return to.

Nice and friendly staff. Location is a bit out of town. Nice atmosphere. Quit place. Double room had an awesome bed. Matrasses and pillows in the dorm were of bad quality.
