    Lush hostel in a stunning spot. Great links for all sorts of activities in Guatape. Ideal location right in town, yet keeping a chilled atmosphere. The staff are all really nice and the rooms are clean, comfortable and safe. Definitely try their rooftop Thai restaurant one night!

    We had a really great stay, even if it was only one night. We had the private room with balcony and en-suite with hot water. The only thing that let it down was that the hand towel had not been changed from the last guest and the bins hadn’t been emptied....just something for the hostel to note. Besides that, everything was perfect....breakfast delicious and the Thai food and cocktails in the restaurant were incredible! Wish we could have stayed longer.

    Really enjoyed our time in Guatape and lake view hostel, so much so we extended our stay which was no problem at the front desk. Location was great, staff were lovely, the beds were comfy and the lockers were huge! Bedrooms and bathrooms were clean, the kitchen was quite grimy though so we didn’t do any cooking beyond making some sandwiches. Would recommend this hostel for a night or two.

    Hostel is cute and right next to the water and only a short walk from the bus stop. Staff was helpful with suggesting activities and were cool to hangout with as well. Rooms are nice but many of the bathrooms are having problems with the water temperature right now (no hot or cold water). Kitchen is nice and WiFi works decently well. No breakfast included but the restaurant upstairs has really good (but expensive food).

    We stayed in a double bedroom with private bathroom and balcony. Our room was clean, the bed was comfortable, great shower and we liked that it had a small couch area. Staff were really helpful. The Thai restaurant is great and so were the breakfast options (not included in price). We enjoyed our stay. The only criticism would be the kitchen is a bit tired.

    Hostel is located on the edge of town but everything is within walking distance. Clean, spacious rooms with lockers. They offer lots of activity suggestions. Only area for improvement is kitchen supplies. Fantastic value!

    Sebastian was the best- so kind and genuine and gave us lots of recommendations! Location was great and easy access walking just a minute away from the malecón and a couple minutes to all the cute streets with restaurants and stores. Everything was very clean, breakfast was a great option and a lot of food to pay for here and the Thai food upstairs for dinner is also delicious. Beautiful view from the terrace but not as much hangout relaxing spaces around as I thought. I would go back!

    Average at best. The WiFi didn't work in our room (#1) and only intermittently in the lounge. Staff acted surprised when we mentioned that there was no Wifi in our room and I heard several other guests complaining also. It might be better to say that the quality isn't great rather than misleading guests and going through the charade of resetting the WiFi box. Also the lake has dried up so there's not much of a view anymore.
