Property Description

Free pick up from the bus terminal! Take a cab (or motobike for singles) and we'll pay the $15.000 on arrival.The journey takes 15 mins. Although there are direct buses to town every 15 mins. NEW! We now serve our famous curries every day (with homegrown organic mango chutney) !
At La Pacha you will enter another world: Yurts, domes and a gypsy wagon. The sky hammock to watch the sunset and a campfire every night. Indian and vegetarian restaurant. Huge farmhouse kitchen (and free herbs from the garden). Tropical birds and wild animals all around (porcupines, oppossums, picurs). Forest trails. Sports and games. Cine-bus with excellent movies. Goat-milking and cheese-making. And of course, Xtreme sports. We can offer so much more than your average hostel!

It’s perfectly located with a short bus ride into San Gil, so you can easily do all the extreme sports, but remote enough to forget the outside world. There’s a gorgeous hidden waterfall with pool just a 30 mins walk away. You can hike to the unique village and UNESCO site , Barichara (3 hours) or take the bus. You can even walk down to the highest bungee in South America!

But what really makes La Pacha special is the friendly family atmosphere: Run by a very down-to-earth Anglo-Colombian family with two kids, two dogs, two cats and two goats, we have a team of volunteers to help us and we all make it our mission to welcome guests into the family. There’s always someone to hang out with but lots of different spaces to relax for some quiet time.
We try to be as environmental as possible, with dry toilets (and regular ones), solar showers and an organic veggie garden. We recycle and compost everything we can. We are aiming for zero-waste.
We also have local and national charities that we support. By staying at La Pacha you will be contributing to the local community and natural environment.
La Pacha hostel is an experience not to be missed, and if you don't believe us, check out our reviews!

    We loved la Pacha and stayed for a whole week. It was the perfect base for San Gil( (only a 2,200 COP bus ride away), so all activities were really easy to get to (and organised by the hostel). What really stood out though was that it was a brilliant place to relax and appreciate nature. Justin and Andrea were brilliant hosts, nothing was too much for them, and made us feel really welcome. We wish them best of luck with the new La Pacha, and hope to visit one day.

    GO HERE- it’s really not hard to get to and you get all the amazing things about the city but in the most beautiful site with a great view and relaxed atmosphere. Bed was lovely, the solar showers are beautiful and the tomato pasta is amazing. There are so many things you can do in the area around their land and also they’ll help sort any activities in san Gil or sporty ones. Their website is so useful and gives great recommendations. Definitely go to La Pacha

    I loved La Pacha! Seriously amazing atmosphere, people, staff, location...everything! So easy to do all of the fun things San Gil offers but you don’t have to stay in the city. The facility is amazing too, very eco friendly with solar showers, fresh food, and composting toilets. I would stay here for a month if I could! Justin and his wife are sooo helpful in planing and booking too. I highly recommend!!!

    We have stayed in 3 hostels so far in Colombia and La Pacha was our favourite. We stayed in a yurt which was surprisingly spacious and we had enough space to put our things with the drawer and pallets and bedside table. The bed was comfy and we felt very safe. It was so peaceful being in nature but also being close enough to the town. Justin and Adrianna were lovely hosts and made our trip hassle free by giving us good advice and organising transport and rafting and paragliding activities.

    Very friendly and super helpful couple. Justin gave us so much information! They booked our nightbus to santa Marta, gave info about bussen to barichara etc. It Very easy to get to and on the road to Barichara so a Very Good location. The place is very atmospheric with the lighted domes, although the facilities are very basic. Its a very unique way to stay in Colombia but definitely worth it.
