Lonely Planet Colombia
'In a brightly renovated colonial house only half a block from the town’s central park, this small, well-run hostel was clearly created by someone who knows exactly what travellers want. It has all the facilities you could possibly need, including comfortable mattresses, piping-hot showers, two kitchens, a fully stocked DVD library and lightning-fast wi-fi, all set around a lush garden with a peaceful elevated terrace.'
Rough Guide South America
'Friendly Dutch owner, Hemmo Misker, has worked hard to convert this traditional paisa-style house into a beautiful, modern hostel. The spotless rooms and smart bathrooms retain original features, like the wooden floors with furnishings made by local artisans. Socialize on the sun terrace or if you fancy some time on your own, grab a hammock. You’re guaranteed a great night’s sleep in a comfortable bed here.'
Bradt Travel Guide Colombia
'Another fairly new addition to the backpacker trail, Tralala is the perfect option for a relaxed, comfortable good-value hostel. Catering for a maximum of 21 people, there's an intimate, calm feel to the place, and with 2 kitchens queues for cooking are out of the question. You can also hire rubber boots here for 3000 cop, and there's a handy laundry service (15.000 COP per load). Dorm rooms and 5 double rooms available.'
Kolumbien Reisekompass (German Guidebook) 'One block from the town square. The Dutch owner has painted the shutters in a bright orange and maintained the traditional local style with wooden planks and high ceilings. Clean, good matresses, hot showers, green courtyard with hammocks and an inside balcony.'
