“Beautiful place! Friendly staff, comfortable beds and great restaurant. The views are breathtaking from this location and the pool is very inviting on a warm Colombian day. I’d encourage all travelers visiting this area to stay at Happy Buddha. It’s lovely!”


“Stopped by this hostel for a few days for to see guatape. One of the nicest hostels I’ve stayed in. Always clean and the staff are super friendly. Awesome location right next to the lake where you can take out paddle boards for exploring. Hostel pool is insane, haven’t seen a nicer pool before. Fun nights with activities to get everyone involved and a bar with everything you need 😉 highly recommend. Would stay again!”
