    Incredible hostel with its own slice of jungle outside. Chill on the enormous hammocks or swim in the oversized pool next to the bar playing good tunes. You can walk down to the river and have a swing on one of the swings or go for treks and other day trip adventures. Honestly the coolest and most picturesque place I’ve stayed! Thanks to the awesome staff and the cocktail bartender is the BEST

    My FAVOURITE hostel in north columbia. The location is beautiful - you can immerse yourself in nature and still be near the town Minca. Pool is massive and the bar is great - you can even order takeout. It did rain a lot but that didn’t dampen our fun at all. Nothing too fancy but overall just a great place to stay.

    I love the facilities, the huge garden and the extremely relaxed vibe there. I can only recommend this hostel to anyone! It's beautiful to spend your time there or explore the nature around. Either way you are very connected to nature.

    We waited in the putrid smelling air for over 20 mins to be checked in. An hour later when we were at the bar (which had no beer) we were told to go back to reception as they had made an error and needed one of our passports again. When leaving I asked if they could print our boarding passes but was told he was too busy checking people in. Reception was empty and a glance at his screen showed he was actually on social media. I ended up having to pay at the airport for not having it printed.
