Tinto Hostel is a beautiful place that, much like Barichara, takes you back in time in a stylish way. The staff is friendly and well informed, the Hostel is pristine, has an incredible view of the town despite being in the middle of it and the rooms are one the most beautiful places you'll ever sleep in. They have a...

Nice grounds, charming rooms and two (!) clean kitchens. Strong Wifi. Relax in a hammock, swim in the pool or enjoy the view from the terrace. Barichara is a small town, you can reach everything by foot. Rooms facing the street are noisy.

This has got to be one of our favorites places we have stayed in Latin America. Barichara is already such an amazing place to visit and the hostel just topped off our stay. It is in a beautiful location, clean facilities and at a good price. It has a relaxing atmosphere and the staff is so helpful. Javier was a...

The place is amazing very comfy, you feel like home. We had one room that smell like white spirit, once we told them that they directly change us to another room. The managers are giving you good advices and are always ready to help you with a smile ! Very good experience, strongly recommended for backpackers

Arrived in the most beautiful town in Colombia after walking from Cabrera (after getting the bus from San Gil). It is a lovely walk and pretty easy to follow the route into Barichara. The town is just amazing. I loved it. It is expensive because it has a lot of nice places to stay and eat. I found some wifi...

Really nice getaway in the countryside, cute place, with really friendly hosts and an amazing view from the balcony. The rooms are good, the beds are not the most confortable but it's really just the last of our matter. Really enjoyed our stay as travelling Colombia!

The location is great and the staff is really helpful . They speak English and they gave us a map outlining all the must see of barichara. The only problem was that there was no hot shower. The hot water was barely dripping. This was the double room with private bathroom and facing the street. Also, the room had a...

I stayed there with two other friends in a shared room and we loved it! The staff is very helpful, the location and accommodations are great, there is a balcony with a lovely view of Barichara. They shared with us coffee and fruits for breakfast. We even left a bag in the hostel and they sent it to us in...
