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

This hostel is really well managed, peaceful and clean, they also added a little pool which was a nice surprise. Every advice that the manager gave us was great and he helped us find a place to stay for our next destination. Warmly recommended

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... More

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... More

I really loved staying at Tinto. The room itself was nice, clean with the character of outside but the highlight for me was definitely the shared areas. There's a lovely little pool area and a great balcony overlooking the rooftops of Barichara as well as a kitchen if you need it. The sign outside asks you not to take in... More

Don't make the mistake of only staying here one night. This is among the best hostels my husband and I have stayed at in the world. My goodness, where to begin? We spent the morning watching birds and enjoying the vistas of gorgeous Barichara and the surrounding mountains. The hostel is in a beautiful old villa, meticulously and lovingly cared... More
