The Best Hostels in Villa de Leyva

Staying in hostels is an excellent way of traveling. It’s perfect for saving money and meeting other travelers. Moreover, you can decide to sojourn in private rooms to avoid sharing a dorm with a noisy-snorer-sleepwalker traveler.

Villa de Leyva is a small Colombia colonial town. There is no district to pick. You should only decide if you prefer to have your hostel in or outside of Villa de Leyva.

Still, it will be easier for you to plan your tours in Villa de Leyva if you’re hotel is not too far away from town.
