Hostelz.com's Review

Hostel Trail is a great place to stay while visiting the lovely white town of Popayan. It´s well looked after and clean and has dorms and private rooms available and good facilities.

The Location

Hostel Trail is located on the edge of the old colonial section of the city about a five-minute walk from the centre. It´s easy to reach all the sites in the city by foot and there are a good selection of restaurants close by -- the hostel has a good map with all the important points of the city marked, and some restaurants. You can walk to the hostel from the bus stop but it´s a bit of a way and a complicated. The roads around the hostel are quite busy and noisy at night.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms at Hostel Trail are nice and clean. The beds are comfortable and some of the privates have cupboard space. They have nice big windows and the rooms are light and airy. The only complaint about the rooms is that they are noisy. The window shutters block out the sound from the street but all noise from inside the hostel is clearly heard in the rooms -- light sleepers beware. The bathrooms are nice and clean too with good showers.

Common Spaces

There are some nice common spaces for the guests to use. The reception area has a book exchange, lots of information about the surrounding areas, and a couple of tables. There are also some tables on the ground floor for eating meals. The comfortable lounge has a large TV and a wide selection of movies to watch. There are lockers to store your goods and some have power points! The reception is open twenty-four hours and there are drinks for sale as well as free coffee. Three computers are for the internet but there is a internet cafe next door that is cheaper. The kitchen is small but we think it has most of the things you´ll need, it looks like it needs a bit of a clean but isn´t too bad.

Summary

It´s a nice place to spend a day or two while exploring the area and there is a lot of information to keep you up to date. It´s relaxed but doesn´t have much of a vibe and is clean, well looked after, and has a good location.
