Well priced, excellent staff, well organized tool options. I called to make reservations and they had a hard time emailing me. The staff immediately found me on Whats App and notified me they need to verify e-mail. Just a start to the excellent service. We arrived late, but they were ready for us. Food was excellent. The tour for horseback... More

I originally made a reservation a a well-reviewed hostal in the center of Villa de Leyva. But friends who had just returned from a trip to Colombia raved about the Renacer Guesthouse, and so I changed my plans for our 2-night stay. After arriving, I had a few doubts. Much of Villa de Leyva's reputation rests upon its pristine colonial... More

When riding in the taxi (Renacer covers the $5,000 for the taxi) from the bus station to Renacer, I kept thinking we would arrive any second but we kept going. By the time we arrived, we would have turned and asked the driver to take us back to Villa, but we had a reservation so we stayed. This proved to... More

this is such a beautiful place. Lying somewhat outside of town with beautiful views and hygienic rooms, welcoming staff. A definite recommend, one of the nicest places we stayed in in Colombia. Ask for room 5, it's as good as an appartment.

This is a great, relaxing place to stay. It's beautiful, peaceful, friendly, relaxing. The staff was so kind and helpful. Breakfast was perfect. The rooms were clean, quiet and adorable. I felt very comfortable and relaxed here! Wonderful place for backpackers as well! It's a bit of a walk to town...10-15 minutes, but it's a pretty and safe walk. You... More

This is a really lovely hostel on the outskirts of town. I had a very nice, and very reasonably priced private room. It's quiet and clean. The staff are friendly. The restaurant serves breakfast and lunch and is very good. Nice views from the hostel. Only problem, and it's not their fault obviously, is that nearby hiking trails are closed... More

Nice place, with good infrastructure, hot water, a lot of plants and a lot of tranquility due to its location outside the town. The downside is that you have to walk 15 minutes to get to the town, which is not too much but at night you will be walking on a pretty deserted trail in the dark. The hostel... More

The hostel is lovely and very well run, with great shared spaces for mingling with fellow travelers, yummy and affordable breakfasts, and great prices (we camped for two nights and each night was just 16,000COP per person). It was a chill scene, too, with friendly travelers and a lot of nice conversations. Only downside is it's a bit far from... More

We stayed two night in a private room. It was $110.000 pesos or about 36 USD a night, well worth it in my opinion. Diego and the other front desk staff are very friendly and helpful and make the stay very comfortable. BreakFast is not included in the rate but is very cheap and good in the restaurant. The coffee... More

The hostel is a 15-minute walk from the town's center. Staff is decent and cheerful, beds are comfortable, place is clean and VERY quiet. They have hammocks, TV room, firepit, nice kitchen (breakfast not included, just coffee; they offer separate breakfast for cheap, but not that many options). They offer tours around town and are generally helpful with whatever you... More
