So I'm exhausted after crossing 3 countries in 3 days, and deciding at the last minute to spend the last few days of my trip in Curacao. I emerge from the airport after yet another early morning flight, and there is Franz. Franz is the man! He met me with a hearty handshake and a smile, and I knew right... More

Art was away during my stay, but I was in the exceptional hands of Franz during my visit! He picked me up, gave me a little tour of the island, and... More

This was my first stay at a hostel. I did my research so I had an idea of what to expect. Poppy Hostel exceeded my expectations. The rooms were spacious and clean. I enjoyed having a private room as opposed to sharing a dorm room. The hostel overall was very clean. In the week that I was there the cleaning... More

We had a very warm welcome to the island when Frans picked us up from the airport. We got a small tour from him around the island and he explained how some things work around the island, which was very helpful. Two days after we arrived he took us around the island and showed us some things we would have... More

Poppy hostel is an excellent place for a friendly and good value stay on Curaçao. It is self contained hostel, a cross between a hostel without dorms or reception and a B&B without catering. It is a excellent choice if you want a 'grown up' place to stay in a relaxed environment with other friendly adults and your own space... More

If you are on Curaçao on low budget this is a perfect place to stay very close to the famous center of Willemstad. Super market, shops and restaurants are very nearby on walking distance. It is lovely to meet people in Poppy Hostel from all over the world.
