Perfect location at the main square, next door to the cathedral; only from their terrace it's possible to see the dome of the cathedral very closely. I loved that terrace! Also, there are very helpful instructions on the walls about getting to other tourist places. Very well equipped guest kitchen.
Perfect location right on the town square. Facilities good, except for that the dorm gets daylight at 6am, so sleep ins are difficult.
Staff was friendly and helpful and spoke English, and the hostel has an excellent location on the main town square. However, the facilities were poor: only one bathroom was easily accessible from most of the rooms (and water got everywhere whenever someone showered in it) and there was no comfortable common area with tables for spending time. The hostel also seemed a bit grimy.
Such helpful and sweet staff and owners here. This is our second hostel in Popayan and its the best in town. Beautiful hostal, amazing location, lots of super helpful tips from everyone who works here. If you have it in your budget to get a private room once in a while, this is a great place to do it, only 2mil more per night. Make sure to try some Pipian tamales, a Popayan speacialty and try the local sweets! Popayan is an amazing little town, quiet as it is, you won't want to leave.
A lovely hostel with English speaking staff (which is a bonus when you speak little Spanish). A super location to explore Popayan, which is beautiful. The room we stayed in was fine and WiFi is throughout the hostel. The hostel is full of information which we found useful for our on-going travel plans. I would recommend this hostel.
fantastic place to stay - we stayed for 6 nights due to the ongoing strike and we enjoyed every minute at this cozy place!!! we felt like at home and we cooked often in the clean and well equiped kitchen. very very very friendly and charming hosts! many thanks guys!
GREAT location, nice vibe, wonderful staff. What else could ya ask for!?!?
Great location, lovely feel and atmosphere.
Really nice hostel located right in the center, the staff is really helpful and they keep people quiet during the night so you can get some good rest. We felt really good there.
I really enjoyed my stay here. It was a very chilled and quite hostel, which is just what I needed. The hostel itself is beautiful, a really old building with tonnes of light and an incredible skylight in the common area, you can see the top of San Francisco church from the skylight, which looks incredible at night! The staff were amazing, especially the owner who was very friendly and extremely helpful, they also have a tonne of info about moving on either north or south. Overall great stay.

That place has such a nice vibe. The 3 owners and volunteers are amazing - really helpful and kind. The kitchen is quite well equipped. The hostel is clean and in a really good location (right next door to the church in the main plaza). Very nice living area. Enough shared toilets and bathrooms. There are lots of information regarding trips, sights and food in and around Popayan. If you want to visit Popayan thats the place to be. Would stay there again - Highly recommend it
