    Only good words for this place! It's spotless clean, very good location right in the center of San Gil with a view over the park, very big kitchen with all equipment you might need (they have 2 actually!), nice livingroom with a super comfy chair and the best HOT showers in a hostel ever. The staff is awesome: really friendly and helpful! They helped with organizing all the activities and also my next travels. Go paragliding at the Chicamocha Canyon! It's amazing :D

    Hostel was right in the center of San Gil, an easy walk to bus stations etc. Super super clean and comfy, best bathrooms I’ve had in all of my travels in Colombia. Staff are awesome and super helpful with organizing activities and answering any questions you have. The common area upstairs is nice and can be social in the evenings, front desk sells beer and will happily socialize with you as well. Overall super welcoming and helpful, if you’re coming to San Gil I’d definitely stay here

    Clean, safe, perfect location right in the plaza, with the main restaurants and shops about a one minute walk away. Excellent value for money. Nice clean little rooftop pool with a view of the surrounding mountains is a great place to chill out. Very helpful, welcoming staff - I met several of them and overheard them answering many questions about transport and activities. They knew all the answers and help you book everything - gladly, with a positive attitude! Really couldn’t ask for more.

    Don’t have a bad word to say about this hostel! We stayed in a private room and it was lovely, the en-suite was enormous and the shower was so nice and hot! I looooved the rooftop pool, it gets sun almost all day so perfect for a bit of sunbathing mixed with a quick dip. Free coffee and fruit in the morning, clean kitchen. Enjoyed the rafting we booked through the hostel. Thanks for having us!

    This hostel had such a lovely balcony overlooking the Parque La Libertad, super friendly staff, and info on all the adventure sports, local shops, etc. that you could possibly need. Rooms have AC at night which is great for the hot days.

    I have travelled to many hostels across 4 continents and the warmth and friendliness I experienced here was up there with the best. Felipe, Ricardo and the other staff were helpful and went above and beyond with all my queries and questions. They genuinely care about those who stay. Hostel was very social and all the activities can be organised at the front desk. Rooms and toilets were quite typical for a hostel, but were very clean and tidy. 100% would recommend.

    Perfect hostel for doing the activities that San Gil has to offer. Hostel staff able to book all activities and bus tickets which makes things so easy. The swimming pool is perfect for chilling out after the day's activities and TV has Netflix and sports too.

    Very nice hostel located right in the heart of San Gil. Lots of activities organized through the hostel, very simple to do same. Nice common area, pool upstairs, but pretty quiet while we were there; this being low-season. The beds were a bit hard, same with the pillows but otherwise fine. Word of warning, if the power goes out the city is full of generators, and smoke happened to spew right into our window during the night. Overall no complaints about our stay!

    A really good hostel in a great location. The pool is handy in the heat. The interior is a tiny bit soulless but the facilities are good. It was VERY quiet when I was there but apparently it was off season. I luckily met people though my activities but otherwise I would have been alone in the hostel. But talking to others they had a similar experience in theirs at the time. They book all your activities and buses for you & they have a great luggage store with lockers for before & after check in

    Comfortable and clean room, with hostel in central location. Reception was helpful with public transport enquiries and excursions. Nice hostel overall with swimming pool but wifi was temperamental.
