  • Description


    Mompos is an old colonial town by the river Magdalena, the longest river in Colombia. Mompos' old buildings, traditional architecture and the calm pace of life give it a unique charm that has enchanted generations of travelers.

    Our hostel is placed on a beautiful square right by the river, in the centre of this historical town. We focus on sharing the local culture by recovering old myths and legends through art and photography.

    While here you will be able to visit the town and get to know its' history or go on river tours, where you will see inumerous birds, iguanas, monkeys and caimans. This is also a place for travelers seeking for a calm and relaxing stop. You will find you self spending afternoons reading in hammocks or just talking with local people on the town's many squares.
