I stayed here with my girlfriend for a couple of nights. The room was great and even had a little balcony which we could sit out on but the real thing that impressed us was the restaurant- incredible breakfast burritos but the huge, well-priced Thai meals at the bar on the roof were really something special. Would definitely recommend

There isn't enough going on with the decor throughout the interior to warrant a label of 'boutique' - a descriptor given by the owners. However, the roof terrace has some nice wall art, a hammock, TV room and a pretty spectacular view across the surrounding countryside. Dorm rooms are spacious. Beds are solid. Sheets are clean. There are metal lockers...

Nice hostel in Guatape, just on the edge of town. We stayed in a lovely private room with its own balcony that was great for watching storms at night! The corridor outside the room was a bit noisy but not terrible. The kitchen is well equipped and kept clean by the staff. The rooftop bar is great, and while the...

This has most everything you want: WiFi, TV with cable, a nice kitchen, hot showers, good beds and an upstairs bar. It's also the home of Pablo Escobar paintballing. I stayed both here and Rock a town and if you want a comparison they both offer similar facilities but Lakeview has much more atmosphere, staff who are much proactive and...

This hostel is the best in Guatape in my opinion. The staff are really friendly and helpful, tours are plenty and great value for money. The rooftop terrace bar and restaurant is a great place to meet other travellers and the food served is spot on! Can't wait to return!!
