Recently stayed in Hostel Rana for our stay in Villa de Leyva. Originally reserved a room for three, but upon arrival, there was a total of 4 of us. This was no problem, and a room for 4 was made available to us. We did reserve a room with a private bathroom, but I suppose the change in the number of people had changed that, and it was a private bathroom outside of the room - no big deal, this is doable. What blown us away was the hospitality from the owner, she was very accommodating to us, and helped us in every way. She even made an excellent suggestion for a horseback riding tour through the countryside, passing through Pozos Azules, and option to enter Casa Terracota (both with additonal fee). She even helped us out immensely, with the parking situation, as not much public parking is available. Breakfast was available (with additional fee, something around USD$7.00) which was delicious, with fresh fruit, hot chocolate, freshly squeezed orange juice, eggs, and toast. Perfect way to start the day! The beds were comfortable and clean. Location was perfect, close enough to the plaza, being only a few minutes walk, but far enough for the evenings to be quiet for a good night's rest. My one caveat, amongst the many positives, is the water situation for showers. I guess they are conserving water, so the hot water depletes sometime after 8am, after that, showers will be with cold water. Again, not so bad, just shower before 8am! Would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend!!

I stayed here one night alone and one night with friends. The family who runs the hostel and extremely friendly. Their son Brian plays live music at nearby restaurants, and I went both nights. The location is a three minute walk from the central square with lots of great restaurants nearby. The street is quiet and just far enough away from the action packed nightlife. I definitely recommend this hostel if you want to meet cool people and get some good live music!!

Small hostel with a great location close to the main square. Very clean, friendly owners, though speaking Spanish will help a lot with communication. The owner arranged a taxi to the vineyard for us at a reasonable price, which was perfectly on time. Room could be improved with the addition of a trashcan and night lamp (and maybe a shower mat). Awesome shower btw!

Very impressed with the cleanliness of this hostel and the wonderful and kind owner Maria. The location is also good and it's tastefully done up. In our opinion this is the best hostel in this town. The kitchen is more spic n span than a clean kitchen at home !

The hostel is cozy and the owner a nice woman, but particular. The bathroom at my room was broken, but other than that it was clean and okay. Service is not great especially compared to other places in Villa and Colombia in general.
