Great hostel, booked it online and it was cheaper then at the hostel. Private room with shared bathroom was 50000 online and 58000 at the hostel so that was a bonus. The place has breakfast for 6000 which is really good. It also has free bikes which is nice and a lot of tours you can book. We booked at... More

The hostel is very convenient for the bus station but also very close to the main square. The room was clean as was the bathroom. Breakfast is 6000 pesos but well worth it for either scrambled eggs or fruit salad with Granola. The noise from the street outside was audible in the morning but not unbearable.

enjoyed my stay, very clean, good breakfast very nice juice, a bit loud in the morning right next to the road. Andrea the receptionist is excellent the best. Great location maybe a ten minute walk from the Center and very close to the Italian restaurant.

We stayed at HostelTrail for one night in January 2016 for the Festival des Reyes. The hostel is located in a great location, walking distance from the train station, the white city, the plaza, the main market and everything else a traveller could need. I especially liked the arepas de choclo (sweet corn cakes) sold out of the store a... More

I am rating this place only as very good because of the location only. The staff that runs this place, Tony and Kim are extremelly generous and kind. They have a sister hostel called Caracol and even thought I did not stay there, the location is in a less busy place and I would assume that it is more quiet... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on the way to Ecuador. The rooms were bright and attractive, very clean and comfortable. The breakfast for 5000 COP was very good value. The staff were really helpful. A few people have commented on noise but there is no issue if you have ear plugs which I would expect every traveller to have.... More

The location is ok, 10 minutes walking to the bus station and just 15 minutes to the central plaza (Old Town). The price for a double was a little bit more our budget (they charge 52.000 Pesos per night), if you want breakfast is just 5.000 pesos. Kitchen available to make food, hot water and fast wifi but not everywhere.... More

Great location, welcoming staff, hot shower, clean room. This is all we needed for one night to make the trip to ipiales (ecuadorian border, 9 hours) the next day. Yes, it is a bit noisy (from internal and external sources) but nothing a few earplugs cant fix. Good value for money!

this was a good place to stop and stay still for 5 days after rushing around Colombia for the last month. They had good wifi, a good breakfast service, clean comfortable rooms and hot showers. The rooms were very nicely decorated for a hostel too. The road noise during the day is bad but eventually the noise died down at... More

The hostel has everything you want. There's a fully equipped kitchen, nice common areas, internet, book exchange, free city bike for use etc... But... The streets are very crowded and you hear all the cars, buses etc. One can handle that better than the other I guess. But besides that, I used the laundry service and I cannot recommend that!...
