    They are super helpful with organizing activities and have a great network within Guatapé to make nearly anything possible, also on short notice!

    I loved my stay here mostly because I loved Guatape. The hostel itself has a BEAUTIFUL view of the lake. The kitchen is a bit dirty and doesn't have a microwave. Most of the outlets are loose and your charger will fall right out of them. The staff was nice and my bed was comfy. The hostel has more of a family feel than any other hostel that I've stayed at, which I actually didn't mind.

    There is a restaurant directly above the Hostel. It was loud as hell till midnight. I just wanted to go to bed but there was stomping and yelling and blasting music. It's a great hostel. Just bring ear buds. Also no breakfast or coffee kinda sucks. Also it is kinda out of the way from everything else in town

    Great for a night or two, considering all of Guatape can be conquered in that time. Staff was really helpful with things to do/see. Not much of a social environment, but it may have been a slow weekend. Wifi was pretty decent. Close walk (about 8 min) to the bus terminal, where you can grab tuk tuks to head to El Peñol.

    Very Good

    Descent place. Very friendly staff. No hot water in main floor showers. Wasn’t a fan of not having a key for the room. Need to bring your own lock for lockers, one 6-bed dorm doesn’t have luggage locker. Activities through them were great, however, the paragliding experience was a bit of a let down. Thought I would paraglide over the lake, as pictured, but it ended up being over a river valley. Anticlimactic… and overpriced for what it was. 10-12 min flight, not 20.

    Tuvimos infinitos problemas con este hostal. El primero fue antes de llegar al mismo, después de reservar una habitación doble con baño privado recibimos un mensaje diciendo que no la tenían que nos la cambian por un simple dormitorio con baño compartido. Al llegar al hostal nos encontramos un hostal con personas 0 amables y con un baño compartido sin agua caliente y muy sucio.
