    This is a great hostel in guatape. Very clean, and good location. What makes any hostel is the staff, all staff are super friendly, but special reference to Seb. What a great representation of the hostel. Super friendly and helpful, and super talented musician, made our stay all the better

    This hostel was recommended to me by a friend and I'm so glad! The vibe is nice and chill but also sociable, I loved the roof terrace and the Thai food was delicious! Such big portions which meant we could have our leftovers for lunch the following day :) Would 100% stay again!

    Lakeview is a great choice for seeing the Guatapé area. This place is very professionally run and has a full, friendly staff. The owner of this hostel also owns Colombia Getaway so there is obvious overlaps between where you sleep and doing stuff (motorcycle rental, paragliding, horseback tour, etc). I recommend Lake View!

    Great hostel offering tours, rentals and helpful advice. Staff is always friendly and helpful (and English-speaking as well). The hostel is located close to the centre in the very small town of Guatapé, everything is easy to reach and has a nice atmosphere. Everything is clean, beds are comfortable. The kitchen is available to use and there's breakfast, a restaurant and a bar on offer for extra money.

    Location wasn’t perfect. Didn’t understand what all the hype was about this hostel. But pretty good. Great morning view on the 3rd floor. Amazing breakfast for only 10,000 pesos. The staff wasn’t super helpful though. He seemed very upset and didn’t help us find the parasailing place. He said we were basically on our own. But other than that good facility and it was clean! Rest of the staff was very nice

    Pros: Staff, especially guy at the counter. Thai restaurant upstairs, location Cons: Noisy at night (because of Thai restaurant), kitchen was really dirty. Not sure the when the last time was the fridge was cleaned out. Dishes left in sink. Equipment was basic and worn down. Bathroom/toilets have little windows opening into the living area. You can hear everything.
