Fantastic location and really cute space! The bathrooms were pretty outdated and rustic, but that is to be expected in an old building.
Stayed at a couple hostels in popayan and this one was the best. The location could not get any better. Had a room facing the square which was awesome.
We stayed in the private double corner room and it was amaaazing. So beautiful. Didn't spend much time im the hostel itself but it was very cute!
Superbly located and very friendly staff. Relaxed atmosphere.

i turned up late on a soaking wet night after a bus from quito, staff were waiting for me and very useful. it has a good kitchen, wifi, seperate smoking lounge for staying up late and is clean in an excellent location in the middle of popayan overlooked by a huge church. i didnt stay long but can definitely recommend parklife hostel.
well located and nice hostel, nice living room and kitchen area, good atmosphere and comfy beds, staffs information was not the same as what was written on the board (information about bus and nationalpark) so we missed the bus because we waited on the wrong place..
Awesome hostel, right on the main square of what is a very pretty colonial town. The staff were really helpful and provided a useful map. There is a very well equipped kitchen and there seemed to be activities (film night, salsa etc) happening most evenings.
Great hostel, superb location, really great staff. Beds aren't the best, but good enough. Best hostel popayan.
Had an extremely pleasant overnight stay at this hostel. Location is fantastic on the main square. Relatively simple facilities, but clean and entirely comfortable. Hard to go past in Popayan.
Excellent hostel. Perfect location, great atmosphere thanks to excellent common areas. Staff was great, with exception of one guy who gave wrong information (and seemed to rather spend time with his girl than caring about guests). Try to get a room facing the square, it's briljant
Best location right on the beautiful square, right beside the cathedral where you can sit in the reception area listen to the choir sing watch people mill around the park and watch the sun set over the town. Really nice terrace area upstairs. Staff are friendly informative about the town and how to get to and from Popayan. Great atmosphere. Highly recommend park life.
Located on Popayan's main square, this is an excellent hostel. The friendly, bilingual staff are full of good advice on the city and Colombia in general. Plus there are lovely, cosy common areas and lots of bathrooms. Unfortunately the smaller dorms don't have windows, so snag a bed in the large dorm - it's pretty spacious, has lots of natural daylight and its own bathroom. Downside? Breakfast not included - but by the time you get to Popayan you'll be sick of bread and jam anyway.
The location couldn't get any better. Very friendly sociable hostel, we had a night out with pretty much everyone from the hostel organised by the staff. We had a private room which was very comfortable. Totally recommend staying here.
Stayed here for one night on our way to Ecuador. The private room is lovely with a beautiful view. The hostel is ideally located and the staff spoke English. The shower wasn't great- hot water barely worked and drain was constantly blocked.
great location, clean and nice private room! good place for a couple of nights whikst passing through
Great place to stay, if you don't like sleeping withthe lights on though maybe don't get the room with the view, the curtains are super thin and there's street lights right outside the window.
