  • Description


    I'm Camilo, a 23 year old Colombian who's always been very passionate about traveling/backpacking, having been to different countries such as China and Ecuador, I want to create an amazing place for travelers to come and enjoy.
    The hostel is placed in Jericó, one of the most beautiful towns in Antioquia/Colombia. Just at a 5 minute walk from the main park, this is a beautiful location with a lot of exposure to locals, a river and many amazing walks. There are several good restaurants in town, all within walking distance, from pizzerias to local menú del días, you'll always have options. There are river swimming spots just 30 minutes away walking, for anyone who wishes to visit. There's always a variety of museums in town, ranging from history to music and art, which makes this town of the most cultured in Colombia.
    I'm the only "staff" and I love hosting people, being a good host is my job, but I've found that with 2 volunteers at a time, we can run this hostel succesfully.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As a Colombian, it's always a pleasure to teach travelers about our culture and language. It's easy to interact with the locals of Jericó, practise Spanish, learn how a Hostel is set up, and how it operates. You'll have a lot of nature nearby to have beautiful views everyday.
