Koala Inn Feb 27, 2010
One of the original backpacker favourites in Colombia, the Koala Inn has suffered greatly from the lack of tourism in southern Colombia in the recent years. Now that the traveller scene has begun to pick up again, the hostel is regaining its former life and energy as the flow of visitors increases.

With excellent facilities, a great, central location and a cheery, friendly welcome, Koala Inn is a great place to stop on the road to or from Ecuador. The knowledgeable manager Luis will happily share advice on where to go and what to do in the area.

Opened in 1992 by previous Australian owner, the hostel has been set up to meet the needs of the budget traveller and as such offers handy self catering facilities and simple and affordable rooms.

There are 15 private rooms around the central courtyard, sleeping between one and three people.

Prices come in at 14,000 Pesos for a single with shared bathroom to 30,000 for a double ensuite.

Breakfast is not included in the overnight price but a hearty Americano option is available for 4,000 Pesos for those who want it.

Many of the rooms have cable TV and for those that don't, there's a social area downstairs with a communal TV where you can also chat with other travellers, use the book exchange and get up-to-date with what there is to see and do in Pasto and the surrounding area.

There is a kitchen for guest use and a speedy laundry service available for around 8,000 Pesos a load.

Friendly old fashioned place! Sep 16, 2009
I liked the Koala Inn. There were only a few of us staying there, so it was nice and quiet! The staff were really friendly and helpful, they do laundry really quickly and cheaply and you get a private room for the price you'd pay for a dorm elsewhere (CP$15,000), so I couldn't complain at all! And best of all, they have awesome hot showers!!
