  • Description


    We are a small, relaxed hostel, located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada in the beautiful town of Palomino. We are a surfing and yogi couple (Aussie & Colombian) and we live in the hostel with our pets, two lovely big dogs and a cat. The Sierra Nevada of Palomino where we live is an untouched wilderness where the indigenous people, kogis, have lived undisturbed by the modern world. We have a beautiful view of the snowy mountains of the Sierra Nevada in the mornings and there are walks to the forest near our hostel. The beach is a short walk from where we are located, and there are two river mouths in walking distance. There are a range of delicious restaurants nearby and also lively nightlife. Tubing down the Palomino River is a fun activity, and it is possible to ride horses along the beach. There is a lovely walk in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, where the trees are huge, ancient and luscious. There are many other rivers, waterfalls and beaches a short bus ride from where we are located.

    You will be able to feel that you are staying in your own home at the hostel. We have a very relaxed vibe and are not a commercial establishment. You will see what it is like to live as a local and we will share with you some great hidden spots to visit. We speak Spanish and English so we can help you practice your language skills as well.
