    We had a great time here and we loved getting to know the crew working there! After only a day it felt like a little family and bonds were created. The breakfast and the Thai food are amazing!! You have to try the Pad Thai and the Malaysian Pork dish. It was clean, chill, and they are super helpful when it comes to the area and all of the activities. Really recommend this place as we even extended our stay there. Jose, Sebastian, Erickson, y todos los demas- fue muy chevere! Gracias!!

    Everything at this hostel was perfect. Photos were accurate. Really enjoyed our stay. Nice and peaceful. Restaurant on top level was outstanding - amazing friendly service, social setting for meeting other travellers, and delicious food! Wish we could have stayed for longer!

    Extremely nice hostel with all the services and facilities you could wish for. They offer all kinds of tours, the staff is super friendly and helpful, the rooms are really nice, clean, and have a huge locker for your stuff and the restaurant is amazing (plus the restaurant area is the perfect working spot, because you can look right at the lake!) Would definitely recommend!

    We had a great stay, staff was super friendly and gave us good advice on how to optimize our short time in Guatapé. Big lockers in the 4 bed dorm, comfy bed, good shower. The dog was a highlight too, as well as the nice little bar on the third floor. We didn't try the restaurant but food looked good. Only problem maybe was the sometimes spotty wifi, which didn't reach our room and wasn't working one morning.

    Our 8 bed dorm was spacious, and there was always people coming and going in the hostel. Plenty of people to meet. Always clean, the cleaners were always mopping! So many activities on offer and the staff were super helpful. We even extended our stay. The kitchen was okay, lacking a few things (it only had one chopping knife). Relatively hot showers. The Thai terrace does lush food!! It was a shame there was only one common area and no where to sit outside, except the Thai terrace balcony.

    Really nice place, great views, breakfast isn't included but it's only 10000cop and they are huge and so tasty! Staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the activities on offer. Also highly recommend the Thai restaurant upstairs in the evening. Would stay again!

    They put in bill service charge which nobody told before or written somewhere. I denided and they want to have 5 % credit card fee which is illegal. Food was ok but like canadian price und you can eat outside for half price. After I complained, they camd with real face. Sorry, but I can't recommend this place.
