It all looks very nice. There is a big lounge area with a computer for guests, books and a kitchen. In the morning coffee is for free. The garden has sunny spots for sunbathing and hammocks and seats in the shadow. There is a hostel aundry service and they offer different tours. Everybody was enthusiastic about the tours they booked. They also sell bus tickets for better prices then at the bus station.
We did not like it that the bed and pillow were covered with plastic. Just imagine what happens when you are sleeping if there is not enough ventilation. Indeed, there was a strong smell of sweat in the room. Unstable wifi.
Hostel Le Papillon is basic, but it was a great value for money. I stayed in a provate room with my friend for the proce of a dorm. What made this hostel so great, was the staff. The couple that runs the hostel is extremely nice and helpful. It felt like we were staying in someones huise instead of in a business. The home baked bread in the morning was the best!
Friendly staff, very informative. The maps were very useful.
I went to my french boyfriend, so he could asked and talk to the owner everything and his wife is Colombian as me, so it was good to know each perspective about visiting a place or doing an activity, ask about the weather, distance, proper clothes, agencies and the time to do them. In San Gil there are so many great things to do and time is precious there. Besides it is very secure, as you leave your things in the room, you will find them. In any case you can talk to the lady in charge to securely store something valuable in case you are sharing a room.
Staff very friendly and helpful. Location perfect (not on the busy and noisy center but close to it). Good equipment. It was quiet the night we stayed here (also the configuration of the rooms doesn't ensure that it always is).
Hot shower was down the day we stayed, but it was due to a city-wide water problem. Wifi was down the night we stayed (but we encountered this problem several times in this country).
The coffee was Great, People are friendly. Room and facilities are well equipped.
The only minor thing was, that the shower didn't work the first morning, but only because water was gone. Maybe that's a problem in all San Gil....
The environment at the hostel was very relaxing.
The kitchen and the garden were nice
The double rooms were stuffy and windowless
This is a very small hostel. The rooms are all set around the central living area. However, noise was not an issue as everybody seemed to go to bed by 11pm, even at the weekend. The owner is very nice and bakes fresh bread for guests every morning and the free coffee is very good. We got a cheaper price for activities booked through the hostel than Colombians did we met on the activities! The white water rafting was really good value for money.
If you cant speak spanish check that the tours they book for you have an English speaker. Dont do the horses. Its mean to be 5 hrs. Takes 2 hrs to get there, you spend 1hr on a hourse going down the road you came on BEHIND a jeep (fumes and dust in your face!!). You then spend 1 hour at pointless site by the river before going back up the way you came. They gave zero instruction to the beginners wont even let you gallop
Amazing staff, hostel is runned by Swiss owner who speaks few languages, including English. Was very helpful giving advices, booking bus tickets and everything else. Pricewise unbeatable place. Besides, San gil definetely exceeded our expectations, worth staying for few days more.
Relaxed, nice kitchen and backyard
I don't know if it's fair to out it as a minus, still, as the guy who runs it is french, this place attracts a lot of french speaking poeple who socialize.., in french
