I loved this histal. It's a bit of a walk from the centre of town but the road is safe and it's worth it. The room my sister and I had was spacious and clean with a big bathroom. The hot water was patchy but I found that throughout Colombia. Renacer staff are friendly and helpful, a decent breakfast was...

We camped at Renacer for a night. The place and set up is amazing, truly. Very comfortable and practical, with good places to hang out both indoor and outdoor. Cant speak for the rooms obviously but the camp spot was very nice and we could get wifi in the tent, which is always a bonus. Showers were good, hot and...

Well priced, excellent staff, well organized tool options. I called to make reservations and they had a hard time emailing me. The staff immediately found me on Whats App and notified me they need to verify e-mail. Just a start to the excellent service. We arrived late, but they were ready for us. Food was excellent. The tour for horseback...

I originally made a reservation a a well-reviewed hostal in the center of Villa de Leyva. But friends who had just returned from a trip to Colombia raved about the Renacer Guesthouse, and so I changed my plans for our 2-night stay. After arriving, I had a few doubts. Much of Villa de Leyva's reputation rests upon its pristine colonial...

When riding in the taxi (Renacer covers the $5,000 for the taxi) from the bus station to Renacer, I kept thinking we would arrive any second but we kept going. By the time we arrived, we would have turned and asked the driver to take us back to Villa, but we had a reservation so we stayed. This proved to...

this is such a beautiful place. Lying somewhat outside of town with beautiful views and hygienic rooms, welcoming staff. A definite recommend, one of the nicest places we stayed in in Colombia. Ask for room 5, it's as good as an appartment.

This is a great, relaxing place to stay. It's beautiful, peaceful, friendly, relaxing. The staff was so kind and helpful. Breakfast was perfect. The rooms were clean, quiet and adorable. I felt very comfortable and relaxed here! Wonderful place for backpackers as well! It's a bit of a walk to town...10-15 minutes, but it's a pretty and safe walk. You...

This is a really lovely hostel on the outskirts of town. I had a very nice, and very reasonably priced private room. It's quiet and clean. The staff are friendly. The restaurant serves breakfast and lunch and is very good. Nice views from the hostel. Only problem, and it's not their fault obviously, is that nearby hiking trails are closed...

Nice place, with good infrastructure, hot water, a lot of plants and a lot of tranquility due to its location outside the town. The downside is that you have to walk 15 minutes to get to the town, which is not too much but at night you will be walking on a pretty deserted trail in the dark. The hostel...

The hostel is lovely and very well run, with great shared spaces for mingling with fellow travelers, yummy and affordable breakfasts, and great prices (we camped for two nights and each night was just 16,000COP per person). It was a chill scene, too, with friendly travelers and a lot of nice conversations. Only downside is it's a bit far from...
