Villa de Leyva can be very expensive, especially on weekends. Plus, a lot of the places are old houses converted into hostels and hospederías, to get in on the tourism boom. But Renacer Guesthouse is very different. It is a 15 minute walk from Plaza Mayor (the main square), has a lovely, tree-filled property, very clean rooms, a great vibe,... More

After 4 days in bogota we needed a quiet and beautiful place just like that one! You have to walk 10 minutes from the center but it's really worth it! Anyway the city is really safe so you can go in town even late in the night! When you get there, if you have walked instead of taking a taxi..... More

This hostel is an easy walk out of the town (about 15mins) and it's worth it. The beds are really comfy, it's really clean, the surroundings are lovely and it's so peaceful. The kitchen is pretty good though they could do to invest in some new plates and bowls, and there is complimentary tea and coffee each morning. The food... More

As a solo traveler I decided to grab a bed in the 4-person dorm. I was so impressed by the beauty of the property, the kindness of the staff, the simple and clean room, and the peaceful vibe. The room was really beautiful, with large floor to ceiling windows that allowed plenty of light in (but thick curtains for when... More

It's a bit of a hike out of town to get there but locals are known to stop to pick up travelers, for a few extra pesos... or maybe free if you are lucky. The views are amazing. I stayed in the dorm which is a bright airy room at the top of the property. Only downside is that the... More

Stayed solo at Renacer in early December. Contender for best hostel that I've stayed at in Sth America! Great common areas, clean and spacious rooms, great staff who go out of their way to help and a convenient breakfast option. About 20m walk from the Plaza Major along a very safe road -- even at night. Great value and highly... More

My partner and I camped at this hostel recently and absolutely loved it. The facilities were excellent with hot water, clean bathrooms and great common areas. The space provided for camping was green and well looked after. A small walk from town, the views are beautiful and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

This was a bit of a splurge for us (under 15$ usd a night to camp) but we were rewarded with hot showers, internet, and a comfy spot to camp out of the truck. We made ourselves right at home, and I didnt want to leave. Comfortable living for over a week.

Really loved this building and the space - so much common space with hammocks and outdoor and indoor seating so you could soak up the sun or sit in the shade and enjoy the breeze, also a good TV room (for watching the World Cup, of course!) The dorm I stayed in was also nice and spacious with big windows... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights. The first night I was in the six bed dorm. I would not recommend it, as the beds are not comfortable and loads of mosquitoes get in the room. The second night I decided to camp as this would control the bug situation. The ground is very nice, it is a little bit... More
