    Peaceful, great energy, perfect location. Great relaxed hostel, not a party hostel at all. More of a retreat with all the gardens :)

    Awesome place, super chill and relaxing. Even during the day people tip toe around, so if you are looking for a quiet spot to relax in then this is the place 🤙

    This place is beautiful. The hostel was so quiet. I slept like a baby. The gardens are beautiful. The location is great, but you might find yourself lingering a bit longer before heading out for your daily adventures as it’s such a lovely place. My room had a heater. The shared bathroom was very clean. My room was cleaned and the bed made every day. The internet’s good no matter where you are in the hostel. My room had a DVD player so I watched a few movies while there too. Highly recommend!

    Amazing hostel. Staff super friendly and caring. Place is clean, safe and perfect for backpacking. Location is the best and there are city police around the corner making it extra safe. Will always stay here when returning. Excelente hostal. Super atentos y agradables. Seguro, limpio y centrico. Volveré aquí cada que vuelva a Colombia.

    Other reviews complained of cold, but there were multiple heavy blankets and a heater, in the private room I rented, and I was not cold at all. Was only there one night and it seemed rather empty, due to low season. Breakfast had eggs and bread and cheese set out, but you'd need to cook it yourself.

    Love this hostel!! Little piece of heaven. So beautiful and peaceful, right in the centre of la Candelaria. Nice showers, nice breakfast. Heads up, staff don't speak English.

    A very nice hostel right outside the busyness of the party area of La Candelaria. Go here if you want to go to bed early because if you make any noise after about 10pm, the other guests will bang on your door as if it was 3am. The atmosphere is quite nice if you want to hang at the hostel a lot but a bit spendy if you want to see the city and just sleep there and relax every now and again. The hostel is very pretty though so there's that!

    Very Good

    The courtyards looked lovely and the place was spotless. However, the rooms were really cold and with no heater. Strange rule where women and men had to sleep on opposite sides of the mixed dorm. Staff spoke no English and weren’t very helpful with advice. We didn’t pay the ‘optional’ tip and one lady wouldn’t make eye contact with us after... awkward atmosphere.

    Lovely place but we got locked out at around only 11pm or so. Had to find another hostel to spend the night in. We had none of our luggage with us that night. Scary and frustrating time. Thankfully was given discount for our troubles and the desk person was genuinely apologetic.
