The style of the posada is what first grabs you. A large open courtyard with a bar and TV area to the right and the whole place with a colonial style. Kitchen and rooms to the back that does decent breakfast. Rooms are a good size. I went for fan and shared bathroom double which was good value. Hosts are... More

My husband and I spent there one night after booking with Alvaro (the really helpful day manager) a tour to Angel Falls. They forgot to pick us up at our return and also the fact that we had a room booked with them, but they resolved this mishap without a fuss. We stayed in room #1, a room with a... More

After an initial stay in a hostel/prison in Caracus I wasn't expecting much when we arrived here. It was amazing totally safe, lots of space, lovely friendly staff and travellers. Hammock area, court yard, large clean rooms. It... More

The building is very impressive, very colonial with a beautiful courtyard and great bar area. My room was also impressive, I had two single beds in my room but... More

The hostel building is great but the same cant be said about the owner. He offered a girl a poor rate of exchange for USD. I told her not to accept when she asked for my opinion. The owner got angry and yelled at me for this, making silly excuses for why it was a bad rate. He has the... More

Hello. I would like to apologize for my behavior and explain why you got a unfriendly answer from me. Of course it is anybodies right to accept or decline any given offer. What I found extremely annoying, was the fact, that you broke into a sales conversation that the girl and I were having, without having been asked for your... More

I stayed here during most of the time between the different tours and treks I made thru Venezuela and it was always great to get back. The staff is very friendly and helpful with your plans and to realize them at a fair price.
