We were there only for one night but it was really nice! The staff is friendly, caring, speaks well spanish and english. Breakfast is not include but is only 3-4$US. The hostal is really pretty, we felt like at home. The room are big enough, mattress a bit thin but comfortable. It was really quiet when wer stayed because it was in the covid-19 crisis. But Bring your ear plug because in Colombia the architecture is magnificent but the walls are not thick. I highly recommend it ! If we go back, we'll go there 100% !

Started here for our trip was a good location and were made feel welcome. Was hoping for a bit more interaction with the staff in relation to tours and things to do around the city but they didn't seem to want to know. Would't let it turn you off was just an observation.

Environmentally-minded, conveniently-located, affordable hostel in a gorgeous house with a friendly, knowledgeable staff. Near most of the things you'd want to do in la Candelaria and perfect for a first time visit. Would definitely stay again!
