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.
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.
