Stylish and clean place to stay. Comfy bed and great view of the square!


Probably the best hostel in the town for the position ( the quiet main square), the friendly atmosphere, the good staff and the services who offers. Of the 2 big dorms, the 8 bed dorm is ensuite but has very small lockers and the 6 bed dorm hasn't a bathroom but offers large lockers.


We had the two rooms at the front with a view over the square. Couldn't be any better. Hostel had a good kitchen and chill areas as well. Staff was super helpful and friendly! Your should definitely buy the 3000 COP Colombia Fácil guide they sell.


Good location, nice staff, bright chill-out areas..and that's basically all that's good about it. Run-down bathrooms, weak shower pressure, very small lockers (can't even fit a 13" laptop) and uncomfortable mattress. It's good for a night or two max..but you probably won't want to stay in Popayán longer than that anyway.


0k for one night


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 The bathrooms were pretty outdated and rustic, but that is to be expected in an old building.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.
