Had a great time staying in this hostel. Great fellow travelers. basic hostel, they have everything you'll need to have a great time. Art was very attentive and stop by the hostel daily. Walking distance to majority of Willemstad. Easy access to public transportation. Lots of local bars and restaurants close by.

We stayed at this place for five days and felt like at home. Already before we arrived, Art, the host, was really helpful and answered all our questions. He welcomed us at the airport and showed us around town. The hostel has a good location close to the city center and the beach. There is a supermarket and some restaurants... More

Poppy Hostel is situated in a part of town, away from the tourist hub but only a short walking distance away from the centre, the busstation and everything else you need and want to see. The manager and his family and friends are welcoming and have an excellent knowledge of the island and can recommend places to go and see... More

I left Curaçao today and was very glad that I booked Poppy's with Art. Right from the first e-mail Art was quick to respond. Just before I left I had to find a replacement for the scuba shop that I was going to take the advance PADI course with. Art arranged for it in no time. He was right in... More

We had a fantastic stay here on Curacao at Poppy Hostel. My friend and I were on a serious budget, trying to keep under our budget of $1000 Canadian for everything, and staying at Poppy Hostel certainly helped us achieve that goal. Art (the hostel owner) was waiting for us when we walked out of the airport, and look us... More

I stayed at Poppy's for 4 nights. Art was very helpfull, neighborhood itself is very calm and quiet and It is close to the main touristic places.There is also a bus station nearby Emma bridge ( maybe just 10 minutes walking from the hostal ) so you can take a bus to the most beautiful beaches on the west side...

Art's poppy house hostel is a great place to stay in curacao, and art himself is a great source of information and help when it comes to exploring the island. Highly recommend this hostel, and to have your own room after traveling and staying in hostel dorms for so long is a godsend

My time at the Poppy Hostel was so much better than I ever could have hoped! The hostel itself was great: my room was clean, the common areas were well maintained and also well frequented by everyone staying there, and above all else, the location was PERFECT. Walking to the very heart of Willemstad was easy and took no more... More

Shared a room with my daughter. The place is clean, kitchen shared by all who stay there, there I no a/c but plenty of fans, bed was like sleeping on a concrete slab. Most of the guests understood that you cook, you clean, but a few would just leave their mess for others to clean. The owner, Art, is a... More

Poppy is perfect for budget travelers. The money you save here will let you feel not so terrible when you enjoying the island by spending unavoidable $$$. It is located in a safe, quiet area with a supermarket and great restaurants nearby. Downtown is 10min by a lazy feet. Wifi is strong and even covers the surrounding outdoor area! I... More
