We booked a double with shared bathroom on hostelbookers a few days before arriving in Villa de Leyva. Firstly, when we got to the hostel, they had no idea we had a reservation and apparently do not get their bookings from hostelbookers or dont know how to use it. We showed them the confirmation and were put in a double... More

I just stayed one night since my previous hostel was booked. This place a fine place to spend the night. The beds are very comfortable and the courtyard is beautiful. The location is fantastic. They have three bathrooms but the two in the back do not have hot water. Another guest told me but the two young women running the... More

Despite the WiFi not working when I was there, my overall experience of the hostel was positive due to the excellent service/kindness of the owner and the cleanliness of the hostel more than made up for it. Also the hostel is close to a cheap and tasty vegetarian restaurant, also its within 2.5 blocks of the main plaza.

Well, I do agree a lot with some other comments regarding the owner of the hostel, which definitely makes you feel unwelcomed and that you'd be better off in your room, or even better yet: out. The room was very tiny and did not fit the description we had of it. I, for sure, will never go back and would... More

When booking the room over the phone we were promised a very spacious room that would easily sleep 6 people (3 couples) and we would have our own private bathroom. Upon arrival, we saw one double bed and bunk beds with twin size mattresses. Imagine sleeping two people in a twin on the top bunk, and they're not even pushed... More

I made a reservation a week before and also asked for a special room since I was traveling with a new born baby. The hotel reservation person was informed about that. When we arrived they informed me that my booking was cancelled and showed us a dorm room which is kind of impossible with baby. I was lucky that I... More

Room, kitchen and bathroom are very clean and the lady of the house wants to keep it that way. She is really friendly and wants to talk (bit to much for me) and helps you improving your spanish. Slept in an 8-bed dorm, which is a large room. Bathroom is downstairs. What was strange is that there is a bed... More

I had made a booking a couple of weeks in advance and paid a deposit, they sent an email cancelling it a couple of days before, leaving little time to make alternative arrangements. They offered no explanation and didn't reply to my email enquiries about what had happened/ return of the deposit. Unreliable at best.
