Property Description

Located in the coffee region of Colombia, our hostel is a colonial house with the best view of the mountains. Enjoy breakfast (it’s free!) with a hot cup of coffee while enjoying the view.

We are the largest hostel in town! Stay in private bedrooms, some even have balconies (premium), or in shared dorms (some are female-only). Enjoy our Free Daily Activities: Spanish lessons, dance classes, yoga sessions and bonfires. At night, chill by the outdoor bar and play board games while you look at the stars.

During the day, book a tour at our front desk and explore the area. Go trekking to the 'Parque Nacional de los Nevados', horse-back riding to the cascades and visit the coffee farms. If you are looking for a place to hike, live the culture and enjoy the nature and fresh air, this is the place for you.

    This was the best hostel we stayed at in Colombia. The view from the room was excellent, and rooms themselves were spacious and comfortable, and there was a great breakfast and regular activities. Staff spoke good English and were really helpful.

    Overall a good stay- included breakfast changes and is substantial (had bread with ham cheese condiments and a panini press, nice). Only stayed one night so couldn’t take advantage of the free yoga in the morning since I was heading to the palm trees. Hang out area only has a few bean bags and uncomfortable couch which was a shame when it was raining. Convenient enough to the square and a tienda with fruit and such just a few doors down. Beautiful location!

    Wonderful hostel with a fab garden and views of the mountains. Just around the corner from the main square. You have to pay extra for towels, and they only accept physical passports not copies or ID cards. Unfortunately the staff were very unfriendly, after a minor discussion about why they charged one of our group the 19% IVA tax when they're not a Colombian citizen they were very rude with our group and it made the atmosphere uncomfortable. Would still recommend as the hostel itself is great.

    Hostel is not as cosy as expected but decent. I’d recommend some other hostels in the area that are cheaper and more cosy
