    Great hostel. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff, and they run as well, so they can help you set up a hike to Purace, etc. There is only one shared bathroom on the upper floor, so it does get busy in the morning.

    Only stayed for one night so dont have much of a say but close to the bus terminal and the town centre. The kitchen did have a lot of bugs and the lockers aren't in the dorms

    Not a bad hostel, they have kitchen facilities. Wifi drops in and out. Pretty city, but not a lot to do. If you’re going during Holy Week, they don’t let you hike the volcano which was unfortunate. Free walking tour of the city was nice, parade was ok. Nothing special. Hostel was comfortable and staff were nice. Probably could offer free breakfast, you have to pay for it. All very clean and safe.

    Ok for a quick stopover before or after crossing the border, as there is not loads to do in Popayan. Not enough plug sockets in the rooms, but the room is a very cheap price. The breakfast isn't great and is quite expensive.

    Zentral gelegenes Hostel, das jedoch leider nicht sehr gemütlich ist und nicht zum verweilen einlädt. Alle Zimmer waren belegt und die Waschräume damit auch so gut wie die ganze Zeit. Man könnte eindeutig mehr daraus machen...
