Coffee Axis Hostel Guide 2018 | Travel Info
For people who are open minded, you might discover that hostels are for you. They typically offer private rooms and dorms. The dorms might be women only, men only, or mixed. If you are traveling on a budget, this is also an excellent option. The average cost per night in a city like Pereira or even Manizales – starts at 20,000 COP up to 40,000 COP per person for group dorms. Private rooms will start around 80,000 COP depending on time of year and special events.
You will know a good hostel by the quality of their beds, their friendly and open attitudes and the amenities they offer. Each hostel in this article serves a special purpose. Some are rustic and minimal – others are upscaled and might even fill a special niche. Whatever the case, be sure to check reviews and travel blogs like this one to find the latest discussions about where to go!
