A Couchsurfing host recommended me this place after he couldn't host me, and I am glad to have stayed there. It's clean, the staff is friendly, relaxed atmosphere. The dormitory I stayed in had glassed ceiling/roof which makes it a little difficult to sleep in the morning. Otherwise, everything else was good.

I often drive by this place and it looks quaint from the street. The resturant / hostel is located within walking distance from the Unviersity of Quindio, the hospital and Portal Mall. I found the place to be clean and service to be okay. There is not much parking and so It's best to park in a nearby parking lot....

Very homely hostel that is located at an awesome spot in Armenia. The staff was very friendly when I showed up without a reservation and let me use their facilities early in the morning. The fact that it is a block from the main street really helps with getting around.

I stayed with two friends in a private room with a bathroom. The beds are really comfy, everything was in perfect conditions. They also have a cool bar where they also sell food. The night we stayed they had live music. Very recommended! The staff is very nice and was helpful. Very close to ATMs, restaurants and bars.

The hostal is really nice and clean (can be a bit noisy though due to the cafe on the 1st floor). But I left VERY frustrated as the receptionist didn't write down my last payment in cash and so I was charged my last night twice. This is very unprofesional and a painful experience for a budget traveler! I think...

Had private room and bath. Room was a bit dated. Very basic, but clean. We found it a bit overpriced for what you get after coming from Salento, where the choices abound. There seems to be a shortage of decent hotels/hostals in Armenia and this is one of the better rated. Good food and atmosphere at the hostal restaurant.

I was in Armenia for 3 nights and I really enjoyed my stay. The room, the toilets and the kitchen were very clean and there was a TV with lots of movie in the common area. In the ground floor there is a cozy bar with live music and I was there every night :)

“If you're in a dorm I'd suggest the room without the bunk beds (just a bunch of twin beds) - seems a little airier.”

“Some private rooms face the street, which is noisy w. dogs, pedestrians, and cars. I believe that there are some private rooms w. bathroom that don't face the street.”
