I got motivated to write a review for hostal bambu because the spinning wheel of luck caught me. Curious?! Come and find out about it ;') After this introduction my review ; which besides the spinning wheel, is worth being written because it is a lovely use of letters being added to words, being added to sentences, intenting to give an impression of the love, care and beauty of hostal bambu and it's creators. Leaving the busy streets of San Agustin, the door closing behind your back immediately relaeses feelings relief and harmony. The beautiful atmosphere is created by imaginative and detailed decoration, honoring the hostals name, is felt by the tastefully placed lessons about life and harmonious co existance and most important attentive listening and welcoming staff and owners. Hostal bambu seems like a hidden treasure to be found, sharing it's goods such as a beautiful, well established kitchen, clean and cosy and spacious sitting areas, fast and caring laundry service and hot showers to name only the (comfortable) 'traveler's essentials' for a reasonable price for either a shared dorm or private room. Over all I want to recommend Hostal Bambu and express my appreciatiation of feeling home, safe and welcome. To me this place is inspiring and a compliment for a globalized world, open for travelers. May there be more years and travelers to come!! :) Oh, and also: the wifi works very well, there is space for yoga there is a beamer to watch movies and it's location is great!

Imaginative & cosy place perched at the top of the toon, less than ten mins good exercise up from the bus stop. Excellent value for money and probably your best base. There are several decent places to eat & drink on the main drag. Easy enough to hop on a wee bus to the archaeological park, and it's a fine scenic walk back into town at the end of the day, with a couple of refreshment places en route. Both San Ag & Tierradentro are must-sees for me, but San Ag is far more accessible, as an overnighter from the lovely city of Popayan (stash your big bag there) if you only have time for one. As it panned out, I ended up revisiting coming back from Pasto, over ''the trampoline of death'' to Mocoa (highly recommended, though not for nervous disposition) then up to Pitalito, which connects. Still a long long way from Bogota. Not everyone's a masochist; but I was able to then make confusing connections up to Tierradentro the following day. Landslides had made it inaccessible from Pop. If you've been through the Mayan World & Peru, the San Ag sculptures might seem gauche at first. Reminded me of initial impressions of Tiwanaku in Bolivia, another unheralded civilization. Wander through this beautifully landscaped park for hours and opinion of this culture is apt to gather more and more admiration. A subtly unexpected highlight of Colombia. Ditto Tierradentro.

I loved my stay at the bambu hostel! We booked three nights in a spacious room which was cold and quite at night. The bathrooms were clean and they had free coffee in the morning. Definitely try their Shakshuka breakfast!

I can really recommend this hostel in San Agustin. It’s a quite place with a nice environment. The small family, who is managing this hostel, is absolutely friendly and can give you good tips for your tours. The kitchen provides everything you need! Well done!

I came here for a few days and ended up staying a full month: that's how good the place is! Awesome dorms (no bunk beds), great shared spaces, rooftop terrace with the best view in town for sunsets, and - above all- a freakingly cool atmosphere!!! You meet plenty of super interesting travelers from all over the world and there's always something going on. Also, plenty of activities and tours are available from the hostel so you can easily book any and discover what the area around San Agustin has to offer. Big shout out to the owners: amazing persons that always go the extra mile for you :) In a nutshell, the best hostel in Colombia. Period.
