Sorry to hear that Hostel Urraca didn´t pay their rent for 1 year and a half!! They were evicted and unfortunately no time to cancel reservations (mine included). I hear that another will be opened very soon though!! Looking forward to staying there!!

I booked a two-night stay with Hostel Urraca a month before I arrived. I emailed them 2 days before I came letting them know that I would be arriving at 8pm and making sure that someone would be there. Nope! Place was dark, locked, and no one answered the bell. Would have been nice if they could have at least... More

This is a cute lil laidback hostel. We saw tons of chill backpackers there. We were myself and my mom and we stayed in a private room with a shared bathroom. It was perfect. Nothing fancy. But just what we needed. Tea out all day, TV, internet, clean bathrooms and rooms. The people at the front desk were very accommodating... More

Nice place, very colourful. Staff very helpful - if you ask and can manage a bit of spanish. Assisted us with booking of flights, buses, trips etc. they don't try to sell you anything. Rooms are small and basic but clean enough. Aircon works well. Breakfast is basic (just toast) but put on conveniently early for flights, trips etc. lacks... More

I stayed here a year ago while renewing my visa for Colombia. The staff were very friendly and help me out in every way the could. The hostel is in a fantastic location and a very nice place to relax while in the middle of the city.

We stayed in a private room with private bathroom. The hostel is clean and beautiful outsides. It is quiet and relaxing. Great location near a park, walking distance to Balboa avenue and many shopping centers. The reception only speeks spanish and is not super welcoming, but we really enjoyed our stay at Urracca. We highly recommend.

Stayed at this hostal recently. It was easy to book. Highly recommend getting the taxi offered from the airport. Very, very well located in Bella Vista. $2 taxi ride to most areas. 20/25 minute walk to shopping centres. Beautiful hostel on the outside, great communal area and wifi. Staff speak little English (for you non-Spanish speakers!). Inside, it is very... More

I stayed for one night as a transit passenger and quite enjoyed the place. The room was small and a bit stuffy when the air con wasn't on, and the confirmed pickup from the airport wasn't there to meet me, but otherwise I have no complaints. There is breakfast of toast, coffee, tea, jams and juice from 04 (to cater... More
