Great hostel, staff speak really good English and are extremely helpful with activities in and around Guatape. I recommend renting the motor bikes, they are a good price and almost brand new. Nice little roof top bar for a few cheeky arvo beers.

Absolutely sensational hostel, great atmosphere, staff work harder than a one armed brick layer in Baghdad. Anything you want to do the guys will sort it out and get you on your way. More fun than jumping rope wih a few of your best pals on a sunny spring day.

Great facilities at reasonable prices. Staff are very helpful and friendly - especially Johnny! There's also a great Thai restaurant above that also stocks fairly priced beer! There's a fully functioning communal kitchen also!

Pos - this hostel is great, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the upstairs terrace that hosts the Thai restaurant and common room offer some great views over the lake. The breakfast burrito for 8000 is absolutely delicious. I love it here, however... Neg - the organisation of this hostel is terrible. We asked for laundry to be done...
