HostelTrail Guesthouse Popayan Reviews
Good location and great people in Popayan at Hostel Trail Oct 25, 2009
This was the only hostel advertised on internet. I booked it, but have to be honest, I was a bit afraid about what to expect. Fortunately, this small place was GREAT!
It's located just a couple of blocks away from Parque Caldas or Main Square and walking distance from all the sights in town. The building is modern, compared to the old architecture of the city.
The have shared and private rooms. Most important, beds are comfy! Also the hostel is very safe too. Shower was nice, good pressure for hot water, sweet!
They have a common TV room and a good selection of DVD's. There's a communal kitchen too with complimentary coffee for the guests. There's a fridge with water, soda and beer. Just have to write your name down and be free to take any.
But definitely the highlight is the friendliness and kindness of the owners. You will feel so welcome. On all walls you'll find beautiful pictures taken by, Tony, the owner and photographer who decided to move from Europe.
They thought about whatever a traveler might need and made their best to help. And they succeeded.
There's a bulletin board with maps of the city to take, recommendations of restaurants, pubs and activities in the area.
If you have a doubt, so not hesitate in asking Tony or his girlfriend. No doubts why their dog was super friendly too. She likes to watch movies with the guests, hahaha.
For sure this is THE place to stay in Popayan, highly recommended.
While I was doing a research for hostels in Popayan, I read a review saying this place was loud. And they even apologized for any inconvenience in advance. They were working on the road near the hostel, but to be honest that didn't bother me...
