The hostel is in a great location, close to most things in La Candelaria. The first time I walked in, I felt like I´m inside a traditional Colombian house. The people there are really really nice and made me feel welcomed. Wifi works great. Hihghly recommended for a nice, tranquil environment.

We stayed there about 10 days between our trips in the different parts of Colombia and used the hotel as our base. The place might not be for everyone (depending our expectations) but we loved our stay and this is why we kept returning back to it. The hostel is conveniently located but above all the people (Sergio and his parents) are the nicest and sweetest people!!!!!!! they made us feel at home and helped us with tons of valuabe info. We would go back and book there again and again!

This hostel was quite cheap, rooms were clean colorful and plenty of bedding. Can get cold in the night but what do you expect its in the mountains. Great location right near all the sights and close walk by into the town. The hostel was quiet and the ladies that run it cant speak much english but we got by. They had the owener come in one day and sat hvaing breakfast with us she was very helpful and helped us to plan our next journey and flights. The breakfast is actaully quite good, sweet bread and omlette with endless coffee on tap.
We used this hostel as a stop off and only stayed 2 nights but i would definaelty recommend it to anyone who wants to have a cheap few nights. Its not a party hostel but has everything you need. : )

Room Tip: Try and ask for a room away from the common room as they leave the tv on late and it can be very noi...

they stepped in for us when we had trouble with the police. Although we only stayed there for 2 nights, they treated us like VIP guests, including helping us with booking flight tickets.
I would recommend this for everyone, being new to colombia!
Thank you so much for everything!
