A country rich in culture and scenery, Colombia was previously a country that inspired fear and inquisitive wonder in people. Rapidly becoming more accessible and popular with travellers, some great hostels in Colombia mean that a stay doesn’t need to cost a fortune and also that independent travellers can easily meet other buddies with whom to explore this fascinating land.
There is a well-established hostel trail all throughout the country, offering top notch services and facilities. People of all ages opt to stay in hostels, not only for the price but for the social element too.
A stay in a hostel also often gives access to self-catering facilities and they are usually a great source of information about things to do and see in the environs.
