Very good hostel, clean room and helpful staff!


The hostel has everything you need, breakfast is good, location is good, but the rooms (especially the private rooms facing the main street) are very noisy.


Very friendly and helpfull staff!

Nice enough hostel. Not a good atmosphere though; no real common area, didn't see many other travellers while there. Breakfast was good.


Excellent hostel, very clean, friendly staff. Lots of great information. Only issue was that they had problems with both their computers (one of them only had the choice of either mouse or keyboard) and the internet (had to go to another hostel because of this sole reason). Apart from that, absolutely great.

Amazing place in a very nice city. The staff is lovely. Activities are interesting. We feel like home at Hostel Trail. We would recommend it a 100%!!!!!!!!!


Main disadvantage is the way its set up with everything so spread out. To go from the kitchen to the eating/communal areas you have to go downstairs and then across and up another set of stairs, so its not easy/convenient.

Good kitchen, movie room, and facilities. Few more bathrooms would be nice but overall it was a good hostel and I would stay again.


Really ideal place for passing through en route to S.Ag. with the most helpful and lovely Scottish people in charge. Highly recommended.


HostelTrail is a great hostel. The Scottish owners and all staff is super helpful, recommending things to do in and around Popayan. It's clean and has everything you need including a nice breakfast. Popayan is a really nice little town with almost no tourists. It's great to just walk around and take the pretty colonial town in. Also, locals are super nice and helpful.
