I booked this place because all the other places I wanted to stay was filled. The reviews I read left me feeling unsure. However, I stayed there for two night and did not find anything wrong with this establishment. I would not mine going back there again. With this hostel I caution you... Reviews are an individual opinion. Your opinion may militate against some of the other opinions you had read...
A warm and friendly hostel. The guests were all very nice. Dorms were clean, baths were clean, and the staff was very receptive. I asked the staff to give me a bottom rake, I have Sleep Apnea and use a machine to stop snoring. The guy was like, we do not assign beds, check in is much later, however, here is the key so you can be the first one in the room. That was so sweet. The food is delicious. I would recommend this hostel to anybody except my great grandmother. Don Carlos
I did not like this place at all. As an international backpacker I found this place to be lacking in so many area. As a traveler, if you know anything about jokes, you will acknowledge the comedy this place invites. The showers is a joke, the all you can eat pasta is a joke, the dorms itself enhance the level of Tom Foolery Humor, however the breakfast was in line with normality.
Urbano is ideally located embedded within the University of San Jose ambiance. The place is very clean, large rooms and dorms, quiet, and plenty of relaxing areas. The staff personality is warm and caring, very receptive. One of the nicest places in San Jose to meet new friends. Like the four I talked with, who came from three different countries, met, and now enjoy vacations together. The milieu is set by international backpackers. I will recommend it. The place is designed to be your home..
This hostel can be commended for the breakfast they provided their guest, close to a small but reasonable buffet. The owners are receptive. One of the owners name Ronald, as in Ronald Mc Donald has that special glee or twinkle in his eyes, to let his guest know right off. As long as you are guests here my job is to make sure you enjoy yourself, and I will do my job well!
Urbano is ideally located embedded within the University of San Jose ambiance. The place is very clean, large rooms and dorms, quiet, and plenty of relaxing areas. The staff personality is warm and caring, very receptive. When departing I felt that I was saying goodbye to my new friends. The milieu is set by international backpackers, a few come to study at the University, a few come to develop their interest, but most come to enjoy their vacation. From this location buses will take you anywhere
This place is what I would call a person home away from home. It invites you to allow yourself to feel comfortable and just simply relax as your ears absorb the melodious sound of the ocean and your mind reflects on its immensity. Great ideas are coming in with these waves baby! At least that is the way your mind feels.
I found this hostel to be a respectful place to meet new people from around the world, and enjoy the nuance of new as well as old interests, in a receptive environment conducive toward your social growth. Afro-American male
I enjoyed staying at this hostel. It is simply what one would call a very good hostel standing within its own right with respect.
Casa Bareke is ideally located in a quiet community right in the center of Popayan Colombia and is embedded within the Universities ambiance. You will truly appreciate the ambiance surrendered by the environment within the hostel itself, which respectfully loans itself, in the form of a reward to this hostel. The milieu is established by international backpackers. Even women traveling alone will welcome Casa Bareke Hostel safe environment. The place is very clean, quiet, and inviting. The staff personality

I found this hostel to be very nice and very affordable. The owner is often at the hostel and loves to communicate with his guess. The owner and the staff welcome you into their hostel as if you were a family member, a visiting relative whom they feels they have a duty to make comfortable. I checked in for three days and end up staying about three weeks. When I departed I felt that I was not saying goodbye to the owner and his wonderful staff. I felt that I was saying goodbye to my new friends
