Mochileros HOSTEL  VILLAVICENCIO  – the city’s premier and original hostel which first opened its doors to the public on the 3rd of August 2012. Undergoing a quiet and subtle transformation, Mochileros is located in arguably one of the best sectors in Villavicencio – close to all the major amenities of the city, yet far enough from the hustle and bustle of the busiest areas of town.

What They say!

This hostel is extremely clean, and very quiet. Chances are there will be more Colombian locals than from other countries which is nice. Best beds I have found in Colombia.
