    We had a great stay at the Sugar Cane. It was perfectly located between the Poblado Metro Station and all of the Poblado bars and restaurants. It was especially easy to make friends as there was a roof area with one big communal table. It is not a party hostel, but great for drinking beers and getting to know everyone before going out at night. The staff were friendly and helpful and I would definitely stay here again!!

    Location was excellent - 7 mins to Metro, 5 mins to grocery store, and plenty of food and bars within 10 mins. Good atmosphere too, and Sunday BBQ was a fun way to bring everyone together. I was in dorm 1 next to the hostel entrance, and it was a bit noisy with the buzzing and closing of the gate late at night and early in the morning. The space was a little cramped in the rooms with all our bags (no cubby or shelf) but we made it work!

    Natalie and the rest of the staff are amazing. They make you feel like it is your home. Hostal is very clean and has a good kitchen and common area on the terrace is a great place to meet new people. Was a little quiet this past week due to the Carnival weekend on the coast. Good for solo, groups and couples. Great location within walking distance to many restaurants/bars, the grocery store and the metro. Not a party hostal but definitely social. Would recommend. Thanks Natalie, hasta pronto!

    Very friendly staff (they helped us in any situation). The rooftop is great. The location is also very good, close to a lot of restaurants/bars. We highly recommend this place.

    Unfortunately one of the reasons we chose to stay at sugar cane was for the well known fun hostel Sunday BBQ...But this was actually cancelled last minute with no reason why. However the hostel itself is a great location, we did the most amazing guatape day tour with Rafa , and it's really clean and nice hot showers. Also loved you could cook your own free breakfast! Would stay again

    Perfect location and great staff, especially Natalie, the BBQ chef! Loved the DIY breakfast and the rooftop. Minus points: 1) not enough space (hooks and/or shelves) to organize your stuff (some more hooks or shelves in the dorms, and a proper shelf in the bathroom would be much appreciated); 2) the fan in our dorm couldn't be turned down nor stopped from rotating, which meant that we either had wind in our face all night or were dying of heat. Appart from that, everything was great! Loved it!
