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.

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 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!

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!

We just loved this place. Centrally located but peaceful. The staff are super helpful and bilingual. The kitchen is clean snd really well kitted out. They have a huge movie collection and there is enough space for everyone. The owners are Spanish, have backpacked themselves extensively and know exact what you need. Amazing! Have been recommending people stay if the go to Popayan ever since. We stayed an extra day. Thank you!!

Feels like living in a luxury hotel. Pool, garden, humming birds,.. The staff (Samy, Oscar,...) is so friendly and helpful. I stayed longer than expected.

Beautiful location in the city centre. Rooms are spacious, beds ok and bathroom is fine. Well-equipped kitchen, a nice TV-area and a nice relax area. Staff is willing to help you around and the map they provide is useful.

Beautiful hostel, right in the park in the centre of Popayan, the location could not be better. Bags of character and charm, don't miss the 'secret' upstairs terrace.

It has a great location and is beautifully decorated. A great hostel to relax or explore
