We are a small eco-hostel offering resort-like luxury at backpacker's prices. Situated on a spacious private peninsula overlooking the town of Guatapé, its gorgeous lake, and the famous El Peñon rock, we offer guests the chance to get away from city life, while providing easily walkable access to the town and its many attractions and activities.

We offer:

Rooms with Amazing Lake Views, Private Lake Access and Swimming Area, Free Wireless Internet Access, Camping Area and Deluxe Tent Rentals with Mattresses, Sheets, and Blankets, TV/DVD Lounge, English Book Exchange, Yoga and Medltation Area with Mats, Free Rowboat Use, Fully-Equipped Kitchen, Free Purified Water, On-Site Bar and Restaurant, Hammocks, Bike Rentals, Eco-Tours and Activities, Sailboat Trips, Laundry Service, Board Games, Environmental Education Center/Library, Spanish Classes, Volunteer Opportunities

All of our rooms and indoor areas are non-smoking. Directions: Direct buses from Medellin's North Bus Terminal (connected to the Caribe Metro Station) drop you off at Guatape's Parque Central in less than 2 hours. From there we are a 10-15 minute walk. Walk one block to the lake, turn right and follow the malecón (waterfront promenade). Make a right turn just before the bridge at the end of the malecón. Follow this road until it ends at a T intersection. Turn left and follow this road out of town for 3 minutes and look for our welcome signs on the right. Or take a mototaxi from the Parque Central (3000 pesos).
