Stay in shared dorms (some are female only) or, if you prefer, in private bedrooms. Start your day like any Colombian would, enjoying a hot cup of coffee with fresh fruit and more. Wander through the city, discover great restaurants in a laid-back town, and keep in mind, our bar opens at four, and our FREE DAILY ACTIVITIES such as salsa and dance lessons, or live music, start shortly after that!

    Good hostel, staff were extremely helpful booking us a covid test to the hostel and booking taxi to airport with no hassle. Hostel is small with not much of a common area. In one of the nicest parts of the city so definitely would recommend for a couple nights to explore city. No hot water but place was clean

    Nice clean hostel in a good location. Not much of a social atmosphere in the bar area. Kitchen was very messy and wasn’t a nice place to cook, but the rooms were spacious with AC and the outside area was nice to sit and relax

    Solid hostel with A+ Wi-Fi. The rooms were clean, although the bathrooms and showers were a bit questionable. The staff could have been friendlier as well. Even during check-in they seemed less than enthused. When I asked to rent a towel, they were very dismissive that they didn’t have any. After complaining, they gave me a free hand towel…which cleaning promptly took back the next day. Despite all this, the location was excellent and close to great restaurants.

    The layout of the hostel is terrible. The private rooms he all the sound from the bar and guests from dorms are forced to chill outside of the dorms at all hours of the night. It’s not a party hostel but it is hard to get any sleep in this place.

    The dorm rooms are really basic. There is a centrally controlled air con that stays at 25 degrees until they decide to stop it. Then if you want to hang out on your bed(because there is nothing else), or take a nap in the room, you have to ask the reception to turn the AC on which they may or may not do. The rooms have no windows, or rather they are permanently shut. So it can get really hot and stuffy inside. For the price they are charging its not worth it for such a basic dorm room.

    I'm not sure why this place is rated so high. This is probably the worst hostel I've visited so far (and I've gone to countless hostels all over the world, including Colombia). Viajero's front desk staff are the laziest and least caring hostel staff I've ever seen. They never have towels and don't even recommend alternatives when asking for one. When I finally got a towel after the 2nd day, I used it once and then the housekeepers took it when cleaning the rooms. I would comment more but theres

    I showed up and it took 2 hours to check me in. I was skipped multiple times. Lady at the front desk said to stay patient, but how could if I’d wait for my turn only for people to skip me in line. Fine I wait. While waiting I notice the wifi is atrocious. I can’t pull up my confirmation. It’s okay, they should have it in their books. So I wait. As I’m waiting, I see rats running around. I bring it to the attention of the lady, she says she’ll let the cat loose…. Uh??? This is all within 1st 2hrs
