What a nice, spacious place! They swapped locations two years ago (the LP location is NOT the current one, it's now even closer to the square) and now have a huge garden with heeps or flowers and fruit trees, different areas to sit down and a tatched area with hammocks. And they sell drinks at fair prices too. Rooms are... More

Stayed solo for two nights in December. Rightly recommended by TA and LP. Javier a very helpful hostel owner. Good common spaces and kitchens, would be a great place to stay for a week or two, although cheaper options now exist in Barichara. I had a great double room with ensuite, for a price; the only downer was the noise... More

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
