I had a wonderful time at renacer from the moment i got there until the staff waved (and barked) me goodbye. The hostel is a little outside of town, but the beautiful setting in the countryside, the large community area with hammocks and the clean and functioning kitchen easily make up for the 15 minute walk. It's a very quiet area and I guess you could just hang around in the hostel for a few days if you need a break, although there many activities and sites to explore in and around Villa the Leyva. The best thing about this hostel in my opinion is the staff though - they were extremely friendly, helped me with everything, gave tips about things to do (and maps to get there) borrowed their private books and joined us in the evening for a sing-along. It's also a good spot to meet people if you're travelling solo. The only negative thing was the dorm bathroom, which wasn't exactly clean. The bathrooms of the other rooms are a lot better though (I showered there once because the dorm bathroom was occupied). Also, I wouldn't advise you to come here if you have problems with walking because taxis are not available in Villa de Leyva at night, or if you are afraid of dogs because there are some dogs on the way to the hostel and they can get a little aggressive. But for everybody else, this is the place to stay!
