Hostel Tinto is rightly ranked #1 on the list of accommodation in Barichara: it's a wonderful place ti spend a few tranquil nights in this lovely little town. The gardens are full of flowers and birds, and the pool, whilst small, is a welcome addition in a very hot place. The dorms were comfortable, and the bathrooms were gorgeous, with... More

Amazing place in Barichara, quite and full of space. So fun to stay there to relax and watch the view from the kitchen terrace. The prices are great! And the man who gives the service is very nice and helpful! You can use the best kitchen you'll ever find, and just enjoy your stay! Very good!

My mum came to visit me in Colombia and we took a mid-week trip to Barichara which had been on my visit list for ages. We stayed in the nicest room at Tinto Hostel, the Mango Room which is on the left of the front entrance, is a huge room with fan, TV and open roofed bathroom with a mango... More

We didn't actually stay here but the very welcoming friendly owner invited us in and let us watch the champions league final, fed us ants and offered us sweets. Wish we could have stayed here because inside it had beautiful gardens, rooms and views. Thanks for great hospitality.

We loved this place a lot. Huge private room, with open air bathroom that had a huge mango tree in the middle. Probably the best hostel we stayed at. We ad a kitchen almost just to ourselves, as there were two and this was right next to our room. Plenty of information, beautiful views and also very nice garden. Very... More

We love that hostel with its rustically architecture. We had the privet room just next to the entrence. That privet room is quite big and has its own bathroom. Be aware of the mosquitos. There are a lot of them there. We had a lot of bites, despite the net over our bed. And watch out for semana santa (ester... More

Tinto Hostel is is jewel; Barichara is already a beautiful and relaxing town and Tinto makes it even better. You feel like you are in a resort. The hostel's landscaping is superb, there are corners were you can relax, awesome views and it is fully equipped with all the amenities you can expect from top lodging. Javier and staff are... More

My friend and I stayed in a private room with a private bath. Beautiful, funky/classic decor and the bathroom was truly unique - semi-open air, with a tree growing in the middle. Loved it. Javier was very nice and helpful and the hammocks were great to relax in. Only real downside was the number of mosquitos. Javier provided a plug-in... More

Tinto's is genuinely one of the best hostels I've stayed in. We had a private room with bathroom, and it felt like a boutique hotel room. Javier is a very friendly and helpful host. Lovely communal area to relax in hammocks and watch the hundreds of birds in the garden
