“Perfect choice for an alternative Curaçao”
Reviewed 28 February 2013

This is a beautiful renewed colonial house with all facilities provided as kitchen, living and backdoor space. It is a basic place, but beach is within walking distance, as the town centre. there's a gas station and atm and supermarket just around the corner. the owner, Art, is a cool guy which will be there for you if you need it. We had a good time in a very relaxing island. don't look any further.

Poppy Kamers is the best place to stay in Curazao if you are travelling in a low budget. A cosy, spacious and comfortable house with five bedrooms, a big kitchen and nice living room (TV and DVD). A nice beach, the city centre, bus stops, ATM and supermarket are at walking distance.

Thanks for your review! We are now called Poppy Hostel Curacao but we are still the best place for the growing number of backpacking visitors coming to Curacao. Your review has really helped me reach them. Welcome back any time but be sure to check with me personally first. I have a special arrangement for loyal repeat guests.
Mucho Gusto!

Had an awesome stay at this hostel, which I believe is the only one on the island. It's a cute 5-bedroom house, which is a great way to meet people. The other folks staying there were all very friendly.

Poppy Kamers is in Otrabanda, a neighborhood where many of the locals live -- decidedly not touristy. The pier and historic Punda are an easy 10-15 min walk.

Art was very helpful. He's not always on-site, but is easily reachable by phone or email (wifi available). The place has a common room with TV, kitchen and two decent-sized bathrooms. The kitchen has enough tools that you can totally make dinner if you choose (there's a grocery store nearby).

If you're looking to save some money on your vacation and don't require a fancy all-inclusive packaged deal, this is definitely your place. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

My stay at Curacao was great. Poppy Kamers has an authentic and warm atmosphere. The house is beautiful, spacious and clean, a real gem. You naturally come into contact with fellow travelers by sharing the kitchen and living room. Its very conveniently situated at the center of Willemstad, in walking distance of the main tourist attractions of the city.Supermarket and ATM around the corner. To explore the island and its beautiful beaches I recommend to rent a car. I liked the beach nearby the house because of the fishing pelicans, a joy to watch. Art is a kind, welcoming host. He really contributes to the atmosphere of the house. Thanks for the upgrade at the and of my stay!.

Seriously, I had the absolute time of my life here. Curacao is awesome on its own, but staying here at the Poppy house definitely made for an even cooler experience. Art is a super laid-back, helpful, and informative host. And the place seemed to attract other like-minded guests: although I was technically vacationing solo, I feel like I spent my whole trip hanging out with good friends. And I am, by no means, a social person by default. Way more of an authentic, enlightening experience than staying in some sheltered, crowded, tourist-ridden spot (although in smaller doses, those places are great fun, and there are a ton of them that you can easily get to from here--and then it's nice to come back to a low-key house with only a few people in it at most at the end of the day!). There is a nice, quiet beach at a small resort within very close walking distance, too, and if you get there in the morning you might be lucky enough to have the whole lagoon to yourself, like I did :) The other great thing about Art is that, on more than one occasion, he totally went out of his way to help us (myself and the other guests) do and see some cool things and amazing places that we might not have gotten a chance to do otherwise, being less familiar with the island and all. And then of course, there's the price--which is more than fair! It's certainly not a hotel, you really get just the basics. But that's all you need; you'll want to be out and about all day anyway. Bottom line: can't wait to come back. :)

I would recommend this place if you want to stay in a nice place and have the owner Art give you good tips! Art is very nice and i felt I could ask him anything regarding Curacao!

Its cool to stay in a nice house just a block away from the main road! I think it gives you a better feel for Curacao than staying in a chain hotel.

Its also nice cuz i was a little tired and just wanted to rest and keep cool away from the sun. this place has a nice living room with tv, couch and a nice dvd collection. oh ya, there is a full kitchen if you want to cook, and get groceries from the market 1 block away.

If I am lucky enough to go back to Curacao, I will def. go see Poppy Kamers and Art!

Room Tip: If you need a certain kind of room, just ask Art!

I had a very nice stay at the Poppy Kamers house. The house is in a good state, in a nice neighborhood and very clean. Everything is fully furnished so that I didn't miss anything.
Art is a very nice guy and it was easy to deal with him. I also could call him if I needed his help, for example if a locker of the rooms was blocked. He tried to fix it a soon as possible, which meant in the next few hours.
There is just nothing negative to say. I would definitely recommend that place, just also made my time on the island as great as it was.
