We had a wonderfull 2-day-trip to Popayan and we stayed at Park Life Hostel. It was wonderfull! The atmosphere in this hostal is amazing, with beautiful rooms, a roof terrace, nice staff and other guests and much informacion and rest area for the guests. The location is perfect to get to know "la ciudad blanca". The only thing we have to mention is that the bathrooms could have been a little cleaner but it was allright. Thank you!


This is a gem of a hostel. It´s located slap bang in the centre of the historical city and is ideal for exploring Popayan. The reception is manned 24 hours a day and is secure as you have to be buzzed in to enter. The dorms are spacious and clean and there´s a relaxing common area next to reception. Staff are bilingual and helpful, cheap beers are sold, and there´s a room upstairs where you can watch films. There are also adequate shower and toilet facilities and a kitchen for guest use.


Very beautiful building at the perfect location. Super friendly and very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Many thanks Verena


The Green Room we stayed in had a really good matress, clean pillows and a really comfy blanket! The shower heaters were a bit old and so warm water was little but the hostel in general was really nice!


Wonderful hostel plain and simple. One of the neatest hangout movie area Ive ever seen. Its based on the side of an ancient church and has a wonderful atmosphere. Great place to undwind, amazing staff, highly recommend.


I really enjoyed my stay at Parklife - it was the perfect place to explore Popayan. I loved the fact sheets in the hostel with activities in and outside of town, bus timings and basically everything you need to know.


Great little hostel right on the square. Fantastic staff and a really cosy atmosphere. There is a big kitchen and eating area, 2 common areas (the one upstairs is beautiful) that all have incredible light. The biggest dorm has the best natural light, and the shower downstairs also gives the best pressure and hot water. Great hostel and would definitely stay again. Thanks guys!


Perfect location on the park, nice staff, good facilities and the wifi was fast. Thanks!


Great hostel with friendly staff. Really good location. Enjoyed the roof top terrace to hang out. Met loads of good people here too....


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.
