Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The hostel is cozy, nice to meet people, you can swim and canoe from it, it has a great view to the rock and it is easy to reach walking.
I went with a friend and she said the matresses are not the best, like they do a "U" shape, but honesty I slept really good, I have no complaints. And it's not a reason for a no-go according to my friend. One remark (positive one) the shower has really warm water that's a plus haha not easy found in Colombia.
Breakfast is good and the service is helpful and really nice. They offer also possibility to buy beer and snacks, free water.

Hostal Galería is in a striking location, but could make a few improvements. My mattress was too soft for comfort, I prefer a firm mattress, and the shower had a drip. My first morning I had their fruit and granola for breakfast and was quite disappointed in it. I was served a few pieces of apple, and some banana, and the granola was only oats. With all the tropical fruits, they could do a lot better. When I questioned why apples when mangos and papayas are local, she said cause they keep well.
I am an older traveler and no one seemed past 25 who stayed there. I wasn’t a good fit with that crowd.

Best stay in colombia. And one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in.
Really near to the rock. Perfectly clean and atencious staff.
Stayed for one night and wanted to stay at least three more.
Highly recommended.

Really enjoyed Galeria. Only stayed 2 nights, but wish I had stayed longer. Great location in the lake and only a short walk to La Piedra. Close to town, but out in the country. Great staff and made friends immediately.

If you're reading this - please stop and book your stay at Galeria Hostel Guatape. Alejandro - the host - was super friendly and helpful, always with a big smile on his face, sharing tips and knowledge (and food :D). The lovely Jacquelline was always very positive and made me beautiful vegan breakfast.
There is free coffee all day long, you ca just sit outside, read a book, relax or go for a swim!
The best thing about this hostel is - of course - the view! It's sitting right in front of the big rock La Piedra and it's located 10 minutes (walking) away from the entrance.
I wish I could stay longer!

Stayed here one night. Guy that runs it is very nice and accommodating. However the wifi did not work 90% of the time I was there which was very aggravating. Other than that, the showers were hot and the environment is very relaxed. Great view just needs better wifi to support the amount of guests.

You can't beat the view from the balcony, just by the rock and by the water ! The argentinian couple working there is lovely, very happy people, always willing to help and share good conversations, they will make you feel like home for sure ! the hostel is super clean, there is a nice common area, beds are comfy and it's super quiet, perfect place to relax and enjoy... Oranges in the garden, kayak for rent, just 5min walk from the Penon Rock, and a few meters bus stop and tiny shop and a few restaurants. Guatape is a 10min bus ride from the hostel, and there are a lot of hikes nearby. Just come and relax and enjoy a beautiful view and a lovely company :)

Loved it soo much, I stayed 5 nights! Incredible location with a spectacular view at the base of El Penol! If you can spare a few days, definitely spend more than 1 here, you won't regret it!

Hostel / House was small and intimate. Staff, rooms, breakfast and guests were all lovely!

Hands down, best place to stay in Guatape!

Fantastic Hostel right on the Lake with a view of the Piedra Penol. Free breakfast with the most perfect view in the morning of the lake and rock! Just off the main road into Guatape and walking distance to the rock! Fantastic staff.

The view is just amazing, also you have direct entry to the ”valley lake”, where you can swim and enjoy the beautifullness of the place. The breakfast was good and the service also. The hostel is well located close to the road, where all the busses go, so very easy to arrive and also walking distance from the big rock, which you can visit. If you are thinking of visiting Guatape, this hostel is a go-to. If not, you should reconsider your travel plan.
