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.
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.
We had the best room with two huges windows, a really nice view to the main plaza! The owners are really nice and helpful. The kitchen had everything you need and the common area is a good place to hang around. We had a great time there.
This is a wonderful hostel and I hope to return there soon. The staff are exceptional and very helpful in organizing trips and activities. One thing I must comment on is that the hostel cooperates with the other hostels in the city to provide anything that the guest requires. This is the only place, after months of hostel living, that I would say I felt completely at home!
Nice hostel overlooking the main plaza, couldn't ask for a better location in Popayan. Staff were friendly and helpful.
Great central location right on the main plaza. Helpful staff, hostel to go in case you are looking for place to chill out.
It's in the middle of it all, yet you can pull yourself away in the cozy terrace to watch a movie. Good service all around, pity there's no breakfast. I extended my stay, which is unusual. Gracias!
Can't say anything bad about this hostel location was best I've ever seen a hostel and staff were great owner gave me a copy of Colombia facil for free
