Hotel Pass Home

Popayan, Colombia

We had an unpleasant stay here, to say the least. Our room smelled awful and the bed linens weren't warm enough. No lockers, just a safe box that the owner keeps in his room. Loud birds inside the hostal. Not very helpful staff, go stay at Park Life, it's a world of difference. Or HostalTrail, we didn't stay there but checked it out and did tge thermal pools bike tour- amazing! Eat at Sobres del Mar, eat some tamales de Pipian.

Park Life Hostel

Popayan, Colombia

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.

Black Sheep Hostel Medellin

Medellin, Colombia

Fun atmosphere, tons of travellers. Super close to the Metro. Day staff is amazing, incredibly friendly, night staff, not so much. Book the free walking tour, for sure, its well worth it, but beware that he sets the stage saying that he usually charges 30 mil, kind of a guilt trip, but you are not at all obligated to tip. Super uncomfortable beds, dirty kitchen- for some reason the culture there is NOT to clean up after yourselves. Expect to wash other people's dishes if you want clean ones.

Happy Buddha Boutique Hostel

Medellin, Colombia

Really a plush spot here. A bit expensive, but they provide a great value. Hot showers with shampoo, conditioner and soap! Free salsa classes, nice, super clean rooms, big lockers. Amazing location. You feel like you are in a nice hotel. If you are craving that pampering, this place is for you, if you want to save money there's tons of other great places in the area. Eat at Naan if you like Indian food! Acai bowls downstairs at Mezcla are great! Stay here a night if two then go to Black Sheep.

El Viajero Cartagena Hostel

Cartagena, Colombia

Very young vibe here, which can be fun or not, depending on what you want. Helpful staff with great tips. We gas a big issue with the AC not working and they finally tried to fix it at 11 pm because nobody could sleep, they ended up moving a few people just after midnight, as a couple, we were moved to a private, which was nice, but still no AC, just a fan that worked intermittently and we had to pack up and nice down the street. I don't think this happens a lot , so you're probably fine.
