Management make a great effort make the place warm and friendly. The communal dinner is one way leaking everyone feel welcome. And people condoned time together sharing experiences.
Lovely hostel/hotel surrounded by luscious flora and fauna. Extremely charming and laid back. We had a gorgeous twin bedded room with our own bathroom in the grounds away from the main house. Easy fifteen minute walk into town. Bear in mind, the place is not signposted so it may be slightly difficult to find when you first arrive. Just ask. Most people know where it is and are happy to direct you. We couldn't have wished for a nicer place to spend Christmas.
Gustavo and Luna are some of the friendliest people we met in 6 weeks of travelling Colombia, Luna always has a cheerful smile and is very informative and helpful. Gustavo always cooks delicious food and has a warm personality. They both made our stay very relaxing after a horrible journey from Popayan. The house and garden are beautiful and we didn't want to leave. It was, without doubt, the best place we stayed in our time in Colombia.
Booked a 3 bed private but we were dispersed across 3 rooms. A couple staying in our dorm made things uncomfortable! Horse riding trip with Abaru is amazing but keep trip not as exciting. Hostel beautiful building and gardens and location.
A beautifull place with a garden full of flowers! The staff is really friendly and the food is good good too😃 It is a 10 minute walk out of town take a taxi the first time you arrive!
Incredible hostel, one of our favorites. Great, helpful staff. Phenomenal dinner by in-house, talented chef. Comfortable, cute rooms. Superb ourdoor deck surrounded by lush gardens. Cheap, self-serve beers for sale. Free purified water. A little slice of heaven. Stay here!
This place is amazing. I was only meant to stay 2 nights. Ended up staying an extra 3 nights. If you want to go to San Augustin stay here. Don't bother looking elsewhere. Everything about this place is perfect
Great and cosy hostel. De staff is very friendly and knows everything about traveling.

best hostel I have been in Colombia especially after a busride to san agustin, we arrived very late and had no clue where we were, the nestor legendary chef cooked us a great meal at a very unchristian hour. He is type of guy who helps you remember why Colombia is the undisputed best country in the World and it will make all other countries look cold, unfriendly and silly. If you were hesitating to take this deviation, my advise is, go to casa nelly and Mocoa afterwards.

Enjoyed my stay here: helpful staff, nice atmosphere, it's out of town but that's a plus in my view as the area around the hostel is v quiet.
My 13-year old and I just couldn't tear ourselves away from this charming hostal. By the end of the first day, we felt like family. The dogs, the hosts, the hammocks, the fellow travelers, the honor bar, the quiet walk into the town center all suited us perfectly. From the hostal, we booked a horseback riding trip and a hike to a nearby waterfall. We also walked to the ruins and another off-the-beaten path waterfall about an hour from the hostal.
This is a great hostel. It's definitely a little out of the way but that's part of the charm. The staff are nice and some speak English which is helpful. The food is good although dinner wasn't available every night. They only limit wifi to the main area because they want people to come together in the main area. But it would be nice to be able to use the wifi whenever you want. But overall it's great. The gardens are really nice as well.
Never had a hostel in Colombia with such good breakfast.
Amazing place, owner, pets, food.. Amazing everything!!
Fabulous hostel. Idyllic setting, very helpful staff. Guests were a mix of long term and short term like me. Good for families and backpackers. 10/15 minute walk from main square. Gave average for security only because there's no front gate, but it doesnt need one I imagine, the rooms had locks anyway. They have a live-in chef, but if you're on a budget the guest's kitchen is a bit basic & shabby at times. That said, the pros far outweigh the cons. Loved it there.
This is an extremely good hostel. The hostel was clean, the staff were extremely nice and there were great places to chill out. The private room was spacious, clean and very affordable. The staff made dinners at night for 13,000 which were delicious. Only downside would be the shower was slightly annoying (would require constant adjusting, but was hot which was nice).
The place is just incredible and San Agustin and the area is so peacefull! La Casa de nelly is the perfect spot for a week with a wonderful garden, very cool staff and an amazing location!!
A lovely pace to relax with beautiful gardens. Staff are beillaint and the f ood is amazing.
Really enjoyed our stay here, one of the friendliest and most relaxing places we have been.
