I've spent 5 weeks on Curacao and I have to say I overall did not like the Island: not much to do, everything is quite expensive because it has to be imported and lots of places charge ridiculous amounts of money because most tourists arrive by cruise ship. This place is a great exception and a heaven for travelers who... More

This has got to be the longest, most complete and flattering review we have ever received! Poppy Hostel Curacao values it's repeat guests and after 3 years of operation we have seen a few. Thank you for your continued patronage, we look forward to your upcoming visit and all the subsequent ones ;). Maybe Curacao will "grow" on you a... More

I spent 3 nights at Poppy Hostel on a last minute reservation. They don't usually accept local guests but as this was the the most affordable place (even for a local!) I could find on a short notice I got in touch with Art directly and he made an exception. I felt right at home, even thou the place was... More

I recommend this place to everyone, the location is perfect, with restaurants, bus stops, grocerys, drug stores and banks, the hostal is not long from the bus terminal of otrobanda where some buses to the beach can be taken, in general, otrobanda is a very safe place to walk at nights. The only thing i aware visitors of, is to... More

Very nice people and helpful. They even solved out my mistake in booking allowing me to stay extra day in house. House is in central part of Willemstad, good condition. Good value for money and I would recommend it to all visitors in curacao :)

The hostel is a 10 minute walk away from downtown. Maybe would not go there again as a couple but 4 backpackers great. The rooms are clean and the owners are very nice. There is a supermarket across the street so we bought our stuff there and cooked by ourselfs. I recommend a rental car otherwise the nice beaches are... More

My stay at Poppy's was great. Simple, very clean and with all the accommodations needed. Very close to the city but in a quite neighbourhood, so again, the perfect combination. Art, the owner, is very helpful and easy to communicate with. A beach nearby, the busstop close, supermarket on walking distance... What more do you want?

Loved the location and service. A great option for a budget friendly vacation in Curacao. Near carnaval parade route, Close to beaches and walking distance from downtown. Knowledgeable and friendly management helped make our stay memorable.

I had an awesome 10 nights at Poppy Hostel. The place is basic but has everything you need. And clean. Great location, a supermarket is 3 min walk away and is an easy walk to everywhere in town. I felt safe as a solo female. Art was really good at email contact when booking and gave some great tips. He... More

I had a wonderful time at Poppy Kamers. Basic but completely functional. Great value. I thoroughly enjoyed my three week stay. Met some really lovely people also staying there. It truly was a happy house. Ideal location to head into Willhemstad centre. Netto Bar is just down the street (famous local bar). A handy supermarket is across the road. A... More

I had a good stay. It's in a calm area, nearby the citycentre. Just a short walk. Supermarket and busstop around the corner. Beach is a ten minute walk. Everything you need is present in the house and the house is cleaned once a week.
