“Beautiful hostel, wonderful people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2011

My girlfriend and I stayed in Provincia during a random trip to Valledupar. No idea why this town isn't in the guide books but it is absolutely amazing and this hostel was a welcome surprise.Provincia is a family-owned, operated, and lived in space. The entire family is incredible. They make you feel part of the house. Almost everyone speaks English if that is important to you but to really get the full experience of Valledupar a basic command of Spanish is helpful. The hostel is spotless, the rooms large and colourful, the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook a feast. The hostel is located right next to the picturesque main square, so you can't beat the location. We only planned to stay for 1 or 2 days we ended up staying for 5 and only left because we had to go study Spanish. The only criticisms I had, were that our room could get a bit stuffy at night because there are no windows to the outside but on the other hand they do have a nice fan and they just installed air conditioning so its not really a bother. If you're a light sleeper and people stay up late socializing it could be a bit loud, but that's to be expected in a hostel... Valledupar is not a crazy party place anyway so we didn't have any problems sleeping. I would strongly recommend to anyone to visit Valledupar and stay here in Hostel Provincia. You will not be disappointed!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2010

We arrived here after a long trip down from the Guajira Peninsula and it was just what we were looking for. Clean and cheerful, there was a BBQ that night in Provincia and some of the locals came along allowing us to chat and get to know Valledupar. My room was spacious, clean and comfortable, the hostel itself is a goldmine for information about the city and Colombia. My only regret, to not have stayed longer. Provincia makes for an excellent place either en route to or from the Guajira, on to Santa Marta and as a different as yet undiscovered corner here in Colombia.
