Great to return to Colombian Highlands again and see that its continued to improve since our last visit. Great for nature lovers, walkers, people wanting to get out and enjoy the day. Good breakfast and finally a colombian hostel with a proper coffee machine. I recommend the upstairs private.

Renacer Hostel is situated just outside of downtown Villa de Leyva in a great mountain setting. It is a very clean warm place with staff and owners who really do care about your experience. Great facilities and outdoor spaces make this an easy choice in Villa de Leyva. They also have a ton of information and can organize anything for... More

The hotel is nice, really clean, the beds are super comfy. There's fast-enough wifi. The property is located a bit outside the Villa de Leyva, so you feel more in the nature and you're surrounded by the mountains. It's very calm and peaceful! The staff is friendly and nice. 4 little things I didn't like: 1) the bikes you can... More

Four of us stayed for two nights at this quiet and peaceful lovely hostel on the outskirts of town. An easy walk into town. Highly recommended. The people who run the place are gracious and friendly. A fabulous place to visit. They can connect you to a really terrific guide named Awad, who spent the whole day with us walking... More

A friend and I stayed in this charming little lodge for two nights. The place was well set up with facilities for campers and roomers, and the onsite restaurant looked very 1970s snazzy. We went on a horse riding tour and Raul and his beasts were a perfect way to while away an inexpensive afternoon. Take care finding it though.... More

Really enjoyed my 3-day stay at Renacer Hostel. Its a very nice set up with beautiful grounds. I liked being a km from town because it forced me to walk off meals and cerveza. The Renacer staff was great. They were very patient with my bad espanol and even helped me practice a little. they were very helpful when I... More

Renacer Hostal is about a 15 minute walk from the town square, just close enough, but secluded too, beautiful grounds, nice views. The first night we were in one of the dorms, it was fine, then moved to one of the private cabins, clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful, facilities were good, although the kitchen could have been... More

I agree with others that the hostel is beautiful and peaceful, well-kept, good food! Overall I was pleased with my stay. The downsides were: unreliable internet; tiny lockers for valuables that were inaccessible after 10 p.m. because they were located in the main office instead of in rooms; and maintenance workers entering my room to replace a window at 9...

Loved spending time at Renacer, the staff were extremely welcoming and friendly. Our private room was very spacious and clean, everything we needed. We hired bikes from the hostel, cooked in the kitchen and met other nice tourists here. Highly recommend.

What a great place to stay! The hostel is just outside of Villa de Leyva and has an awesome view over the city. From here the Colombian Highland tours are operated which are just as awesome as this hostel. Both the hostel and the tours are highly recommended.
