After a long journey from Bogota, this hostal proved to be quite the choice for a couple nights relaxation and adventure. The hosts Sean and Susy are amazing and they make you feel right at home upon arrival. It is a small quaint hostal with 5 rooms on two levels with gorgeous views of the lake and the rock right directly above. The rooms are clean and quiet and have enough blankets for the colder nights as well as reading lights on the bed side table (don't see this very often). Privates are good for couples and the small 3 bed dorm is great for single travellers like myself. Prices for the dorm are 20,000 cop/pp and there is one dbl bed to go with the bunk bed if you want to pay a bit more for more sleeping room.
When I was there the rest of the guests were great and we did some group meals together, as well as spent the days hiking and seeing the sights. There certainly is enough stuff to do here for 4 or 5 days......from the hostal you can rent out bikes and kayaks as well as rockclimbing done right out side the front door.
A nice highlight was the weekly BBQ they put on ....best steaks and grill around - and done with budget in mind. Free morning coffee, a couple balconies, hammock and views......oh and beers in the fridge on offer. Use of kitchen at any time....and a nice little set up the kitchen had as well with tons of spices to use, oil and other small things we normally don't lug around with us but wish they were included to make cooking more enjoyable and easier on the wallet.
Another great feature of the hostal is the proximity to town.....youre not right in the town core by any means but you can easily access with the frequent jeep/taxis going by every 10 minutes. You can even walk, or catch the cab for 1500pp......cheap and easy...and there in five minutes. I used the taxis to go into town for groceries or an afternoon of relaxing beers in the town square. All in all I would say a fabulous location to be out of the action OR in the action quite simply done. Highly recommended......great job by the hosts putting a place together that suites the needs and to their credit, makes you want to stay longer than you expected.
