I spent three nights in a dormitory in this hostel, which seems comfortable and clean at the first glance. But in the third night, I was biten by hundreds of some insects, so that it was impossible to sleep. I guess those were bedbugs, because my mosquito repellent did not work and after the first night the lady owner asked... More

Just spent 3 night's in glorious Villa de Leyva at this great little hostel. Very peaceful, clean, friendly, perfect location 2 blocks from Plaza Mayor. Operated by a local lady, we received a cheerful welcome after booking thru a website. Great value and we enjoyed out stay very much.

I came to Villa de Leyva on the recommendation of a Colombian friend, it is a beautiful little town, with plenty going on, lots to see and do. I stayed at Hostel Rana as it seemed to have good recommendations and a high rating, It is a quaint beautiful place, has been refurbished rather well and is not over populated,... More

First off the owner was a bit rude with another guest who was playing the guitar softly in the living room. She told him not to play his music. Not a very Hostel vide. On hostel world she list a private for one person at 40,0000COP. When I arrived she told me it's 80,000. Not worth it at all. Dorms... More

I stayed here for 3 nights. The location of the hostel is great as it is less than 5 minute walk from the bus terminal and even less to walk to the main plaza where all the action is. The place is very peaceful as it is not a main street, very little traffic. The garden and the hammock make... More

The owner of this hostel (I assume she was the owner) was really lovely and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. She even rang up to find out when the best direct bus was leaving to Bogota for us, and gave me a beer on checkout as a "souvenir" :) we didn't have a good night's... More

Hostel was great, the showers were even better. Adequate kitchen and plenty of common space for chilling. Dorm room was overcrowded when almost full but you're only sleeping in it. Luis (the owner) was helpful and really friendly. In an ideal location and easy to get to from bus station. Good wifi. Would fully recommend and would definitely stay again!

Lovely little hostel in a great location, only a one minute walk to the main square. The rooms and toilets were spotlessly clean. Really friendly staff, that speak fluent English. The wifi was really good too. Great value for money. I would highly recommend it.

Not a hostel for party people, but that's why I stayed here, quiet, safe, secure, hammocks to relax and read in, great showers, comfortable beds, central and easy as. Exactly what I wanted. That's enough but the review has to be 200 words, hence this sentence to reach the word limit.
