I decided to stay here because a crunch of time, and didn't do much research on it. It could arguably be the nicest hostel I've ever stayed in! Everything is so clean, smells that way too. Service is very friendly and accommodating! The location is second to none in terms of proximity to food. Many options available nearby: Lebanese, Mexican,... More

Hostel is about a 30 minute walk to downtown Armenia. 5 minute walk to surrounding grocery stores, banks, etc. Nice and spacious hostel, however, dorms are tightly packed without much room to out belongings. Also, mosquitoes like to buzz around at night, which takes away from sleeping soundly. Will do laundry in site, washer and dryer. Well equipped kitchen. Nice... More

Armenia is not a city I have ever had any interest in staying in. This summer however travel connections from Bahia Solana meant that we arrived in Armenia too late to venture on to Salento the same day. I cannot find a single thing wrong with Casa Quimbaya!

The staff is very helpful and pleasant. This hostal attracts a nice crowd of travelers. It’s clean enough. Staff does your laundry on site. It’s a block from a main street w. banks, restaurants, and retail.
