Only stayed here one night as we where just passing through, very clean, staff where helpful,very nice breakfast to set us on for the day, would recommend a stay here, no complaints :) thanks.
We booked here but were unable to get to Popayan due to the road blockades at the time and no buses were running. However we were in contact with Kim at HostelTrail via email and she was extremely helpful with information regarding the situation at the Popayan end. She was also very understanding when we couldn't get there as planned, and we were not charged a cancellation fee. Looks like we missed out on a good hostel.

Good hostel but not great. Location is in between center and bus terminal (closer to bus terminal).
Helpful staff and great atmosphere in common area. Well presented and good information on city and transport.
My travel partner and I LOVE Hostel Trail. Definitely one of the best hostel experiences we have had in Colombia. The owners are super helpful, the atmosphere is light and fun with lots of helpful posters and boards with information, and the place is wonderfully clean. We actually went out of our way to come back to stay for another night!
Great hostel and superb WIFI connection. Great time in Popayan
I like Hostel Trail for many things, but it has one major flaw. First the likes: Friendly, helpful staff; clean rooms and public areas, nice layout, hot showers, lots of natural light, several great information boards, fast, reliable WiFi to my room, free robust coffee in the morning. The flaw: NOISE. I stayed in private room #4 on the 2nd floor for 30,000 COP/night. Because Hostel Trail occupies a corner building it is sandwiched between two streets, especially the busy Calle 4.
Excellent hostel. Great value for money. Washing was done and returned within 3hrs!!! Perfect location. Excellent WiFi. A definite recommendation.
