    We really enjoyed our stay at Lake View Hostel. It is a very well run place. The facilities were always clean, the food was excellent and the staff was super helpful. This place comes with highest recommendation.

    We really loved this hostel. The staff was very nice and helpful with recommending things to do. The bar has a great vibe and was very social! One of the better “hang out” areas out of all the places we went to. The location was really great as well and we loved the beautiful view from our room. The shower was hot and wonderful. We recommend going over to Guapaté Motors and doing a motorcycle tour if you can as that was our favorite part of the trip. We only wish there was a fan in our room!

    Nicely located hostel in beautiful Guatape. Comfortable room with clean bathroom. Cold but refreshing shower and absolutely delicious (!) Thai restaurant on the top floor. The breakfast was one of the best and most varied we had during our trip. The staff was helpful and friendly, and the hostel offers a lot of different activities and trips in the area.

    Enjoyed staying here whilst I was in Guatape. It's not much of a party place but it is a pleasant place. They have a partnership with a shop nearby that organise the activities for you and I'd recommend using.

    The rooms could use a fan at night. They get really stuffy. The upstairs bar/restaurant should be rethought. It doesn't lend itself to meeting people very easily.

    Stayed in a private double room, bathroom really nice, comfy bed and staff really helpful and friendly. The bedroom doors are thin, which meant it was pretty noisy at night.
