Stayed here for a night in private room. Quiet hostel, located close to the lake with a rooftop restaurant. The room was clean, bed was large. Bathroom clean but the window opened onto the main common room which was odd. The Thai food is a must. Quiet cheap for Thai and absolutely delicious. The breakfast (not included) was also really...

I really enjoyed Lakeview hostel. Anytime I meet people heading to Guatape I suggest it and no one has been disappointed! The facilities are clean, safe and the staff is friendly. The location is also perfect. Just 5 minutes walk to the main square but still on the edge of town with a nice lake view. Also, the Thai restaurant...

My friend and I stayed in a private room with a lake view. The room was clean, spacious, and quaint. The staff were very friendly, the check in/check out process was easy and straightforward. The wifi was ok. The noise level was high both from the hallways and the outside but we learned that this is the norm for accommodation...

Can't recommend highly enough - a well-placed, clean and friendly hostel with some of the best sets of facilities I have found at this price range. Reliable showers, a good bar, hammocks, a beautiful landscape and town with a great cast of interesting characters at all hours. The WiFi is a bit cranky, and the dogs out front exchange non-stop...

Lake View Hostel & Boutique Hotel has something for everyone: from 6 and 4 person dorms to boutique style rooms with their own unique art and tile work with private balconies and spectacular lake views. We are the center of activities in Guatape with many different guided excursions such as by car and hiking to remote jungle waterfalls, swimming in crystal clear rivers and looking for monkeys around Rio Bizcocho and San Rafael, to paintballing at Pablo Escobar's finca. We also offer kayak and mountain bike rentals as well as self guided hikes and fishing. Our roof top restaurant THAI TERRACE is now open too, with an excellent selection of Thai, Vietnamese and vegetarian dishes. The restaurant also has a full bar.
