Hostelz.com's Review
In a town of few options, Mochileros Hostel Villavicencio provides a homey environment that is a more than acceptable place to lay your head for a couple of days.

The Location

Although it's a fifteen-minute walk into the town centre, the hostel is one block from a major shopping centre, with another Centro Commercial two blocks further along. There is a large supermarket literally two minutes' walk away and a number of ATMs. On the main road two blocks away are a row of bars and restaurants.

Rooms and Bathrooms

There are two dorms upstairs, one with two wooden, sturdy bunk beds and the other with a bunked and separate double bed. Rooms are basic -- literally just containing the beds, a fan, and one chair. The mattresses are quite hard but perfectly comfortable.

The single bathroom shared by the two dorms is small but serves the purpose. There is a cold shower that does not have much pressure, along with a toilet and sink.

There are no lockers, although the owners are happy to keep hold of your valuables. The dorm rooms are lockable, however, so if you are lucky enough to be the only person or group in that room, the owners will provide you with the key for extra security.

Common Spaces

With no common spaces as such the hostel lacks an area to meet other travelers. The building is basically a house with the bedrooms adapted to become four-bed dorms the front of the building is a covered entrance with a hammock, and just inside is a small room with some patio furniture where you can eat breakfast. There is a communal computer in the corner. The kitchen is quite small but adequate. There is a fridge, a cooker, sink, and surface to chop food. It is well stocked with pans and cutlery.

Summary

Mochileros is a basic, no-frills hostel. It is a friendly, family-run business that greets you with a smile and a warm welcome. The owners are happy to cook you your free breakfast of scrambled eggs and toast while chatting to you about your plans for the day. This is a refreshing change from some of the chain hostels and allows you to get a more authentic local experience.
