    Fantastic hostel. We hired kayaks and motorbikes for reasonable prices and in general, had a fantastic time staying there. The breakfast was really good too.

    Private room was nice and spacious. There’s was no window to the outside but still felt nice enough. Hostel was relatively clean apart the kitchen at times but I suppose that is down to the travellers as well. Upstairs restaurant amazing. Staff helpful. Great location - next to the lake but only a short walk away from the centre

    We really enjoyed our stay at lake view. We stayed in a private room and it was very clean, had a TV, bathroom, balcony, AND a great view. Would stay here again!

    The staff is friendly and helpful in arranging adventures around town, of which there are many. The hostel also includes a lovely restaurant, which has good dinners and breakfast at reasonable prices. The facilities themselves are the only slight downside. The hot water in the showers is a little iffy, the kitchen, while certainly usable, is small, and the dorm that I stayed in didn't have any windows. It's a good deal for the price, but I wouldn't stay longer than a few nights.

    Very nice hostel especially for the price. They organize great trips and tours. I rented a scooter and it was very quick and easy. Staff are very friendly. If your expecting a party hostel this isn’t it. Very chill and relaxed , but that’s what I was looking by for so I suited me.

    Without a doubt the cleanest hostel I've ever been in. Less than 10min from the main part of town (but it's a very pleasant walk) and with an exceptional view of part of the lake and hills from the 3rd floor balcony. Rooms are large, and the only bad thing I can say is the atmosphere was just ok. But I think this is because many people only do 1-2 nights in Guatapé (which is a mistake, you'll want at least 3) because of its proximity to Medellín.

    A comfortable enough/basic hostel to stay in. The lockers were really nice- big and with shelves. There was a bit of disorganization in my room- every time someone new checked into my room, they were told to stay in my bed. So every time I came in I found someone new in my bed and I had to explain that I was already sleeping there. This happened 3 different times in the span of 2 days. A little bit more care from staff in that way would have been beneficial. But bar/hang area upstairs was nice!
