I went to Popayan for a weekend with a group of friends (9 of us in total) and we loved the Park Life hostel right from the get go.
Firstly the location is spectacular, right on the beautiful central square of Popayan's historic center and within walking distance of all the museums, churches and sites in the city.
The hostel looks great with a fantastic common area made nice and bright by a giant skylight above. The beds in the dorms were comfortable and spacious and I got to use one of the private rooms too which was beautiful and well worth forking out a little extra for.
The staff were great at accommodating our big group and were full of all the info we needed to have a great few days in Popayan. From good local restaurants (very important for me) to bars, dance clubs and activities outside the city they were really knowledgeable and very friendly and down to earth.
The next time I'm in Popayan I'll definitely be staying in Park Life.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Parklife Hostal is a hostel that has opened its doors in May 2011 in the very center of colonial Popayan, Colombia. Our concept of accommodation is based on comfort, good music and a good service. Park Life is the perfect place to sit around a table with your new found friends and a good cup of Colombian coffee. The comfort and the spaciousness of our common areas turn Parklife into a favorite place for the "adventurers" that decide to come to Colombia. Getting to Park Life hostel is easy, very easy. You only have to ask for the Central Park which in Popayan is called Parque Caldas or the Cathedral. In fact it is a nice 12-15 minutes walk from the bus station. ... more less
