Amazing, cute little hostal. has a common kitchen, a few hammocks, nice bathrooms and a few hangout areas both upstairs and down. the ladies who work here are amazing. eager to help and always smiling. thanks for making my time here please ladies. buen onda :) increible. es un lindita hostal. tiene una cocina compartida, 2 hamacas, banos limpias y dos lugares para pasar tiempo. un balcon arriba y una mesa abajo. las mujeres que trabajan aquí son my amables y generosas. están sonriendo siempre.


Great Location although safety is important when walking with valuables. Internet is a bit weak, no personal plugs or lamps in rooms, when you go out you have to be let in 24 hours a day. Lockers are available and the showers take a bit to warm up. Overall a great place for the money.


One of my favorite hostels in our trip, cause we felt safe & home in a very positive chaotic area. The staff was always happy and willing to help for everything, although they almost speak only spanish. Though our spanish was very basic, we didn't have problems to communicate and the stay felt good and authentic. "Mama Colombiana" cooked us eggs in different style all three mornings we had breakfast (which was included - next to coffee and toast). They also have a little terrace at the rooftop!


Very safe hostel. Local police take their break in the hostel common area which makes you feel quite certain your belongings are always safe. Friendly staff, clean facilities, close to a bus line, but not sure how bread and coffee is considered "breakfast". I will say tho that when we arrived at 8am to check in the staff were very friendly and offered us all the facilities, including the breakfast, to use. Nice when you've taken an overnight bus.


Love the place.


One of the nicest hostels I've stayed at. The staff were all Colombians, instead of wayward shanghaied backpackers, and were very helpful, and could give plenty of advice for life in Colombia. In addition the hostel was used by quite a lot of latin-americans, both colombians and from other countries, which set it apart from the hostels were it's all australians and americans, and you don't even get a chance to speak spanish. Would highly recommend.
