A very nice place which offers great tours! We definitely recommend it!


Great place located at the main square with small rooftop pool at the backside and terrace at the front that views at the square. Friendly and very helpful staff (you can make reservations for bustrips at the reception desk!), good kitchen and a fridge with various ice cold drinks! They also own a restaurant a street away from the square which offers full plates for very reasonable prices, and you can order the region-famous ant sauce here.


Great hostel, great location, friendly and helpful staff. All activities can be booked at the front desk which makes things simple. Only had private rooms available for 40,000 pp which is definately on the $$ side. Rooms were ok, clean , great washrooms. Batteries on safe were dead, and the fan didn't work (didnt bother us at at all, but I believe if you are going to offer extras, they should be functional. Communal kitchen was best ive seen in central/south america hands down!!!


It was a lovely clean and quiet hostel beside the plaza. Bathrooms were great, mosquitos weren't. The staff gave us wrong information about getting a bus to Villa de Leyva and our journey took 7 hours instead of 3 hours. Good security for getting in and out of the hostel. There were lockers outside the rooms for valuables but each room was locked and those staying in their room had a key.


Can't say enough good things about this place. The staff were great, more activities to choose from than you can think of, perfect location, clean rooms, comfy beds, lockers for important items, two kitchen areas, balcony, great atmosphere...probably the best hostel I've stayed in whilst in SA.


Great hostel, excellent environment and there are a plethora of activities to choose from at the front desk. Some staff speak English, but mostly Spanish, though it's pretty easy to get what you need. The location is great, as it sits right in front of the square where you'll find cute cafes and restaurants. It's also a short walk to the large mall in the area.
