    Great vibe, great breakfast, great price. Wifi was strong too in our bedroom which is not always the case. Perfect place to meet people and a good base to explore the city. No complaints whatsoever - much recommended!

    We loved our stay here. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The roof terrace was a nice space to drink in the evening and for breakfast. It was a really chilled hostel which was what we wanted after a few loud party hostels we'd stayed in. Lots of places to eat on the street and around it. Also a quick and easy walk to the metro and supermarket. We'd definitely come back.

    A great hostel in a beautiful part of Poblado. Safe area with really good restaurants and cafes nearby. Not a party hostel. Very helpful staff. I booked a private room for five nights. Smoking by the front entrance and on the roof terrace was a problem and meant that I hung out at friends' hostels instead in the evenings. The hostel recommends tours and activities but doesn't organise them on your behalf so I walked to a hostel down the road to book a tour to Guatape.
