Villa de Leyva isn't a place to spend a lot of time, but it has a pleasant small-town feel that makes is worth at least a short visit. This hostel is only a couple of blocks from the bus station so it's easily accessed. It's also only a couple more blocks on to the main square - an amazingly big,... More

Rana is a really nice hostel with a calm atmosphere. Not far away from the main square and the terminal. The Staff speaks Spanish and also English. The breakfast was not included but excellent! We had not much time. Otherwise we would have stayed longer here!

The place is close to the plaza mayor and you can reach everything easily. It's not verry quiet and doesn't do room service( at least not in the 3 nights we stayed). But thats ok seen as it's cheep. They offer brakfast for 6000 pesos but we never ate here.

I would not recommend this hostel at all. There was no hot water for our private shower, only when we complained was it turned on. breakfast was very poor. Dried fruit and no butter for the toast. When we asked for some butter we were charged extra. We provided our own jam as her jam was awful. The room was... More

I spent three nights in a dormitory in this hostel, which seems comfortable and clean at the first glance. But in the third night, I was biten by hundreds of some insects, so that it was impossible to sleep. I guess those were bedbugs, because my mosquito repellent did not work and after the first night the lady owner asked... More

Just spent 3 night's in glorious Villa de Leyva at this great little hostel. Very peaceful, clean, friendly, perfect location 2 blocks from Plaza Mayor. Operated by a local lady, we received a cheerful welcome after booking thru a website. Great value and we enjoyed out stay very much.

First off the owner was a bit rude with another guest who was playing the guitar softly in the living room. She told him not to play his music. Not a very Hostel vide. On hostel world she list a private for one person at 40,0000COP. When I arrived she told me it's 80,000. Not worth it at all. Dorms... More

I stayed here for 3 nights. The location of the hostel is great as it is less than 5 minute walk from the bus terminal and even less to walk to the main plaza where all the action is. The place is very peaceful as it is not a main street, very little traffic. The garden and the hammock make... More
