We had a great time. Thanks to Lilian and her time. We'll situated in Otrabanda as we took the buses every day which is not very far. Shops around for food etc. We had a double room, WLAN worked fine and good. If you need to cook, everything is provided. Nice and safe neighborhood.

Nice small and quite simple hostel. The staff was very nice and helpful. Thanks again. The hostel is located quite close to the centre of Willemstad. Approx. 5 minutes by foot to floating bridge and a few minutes more to the city centre.

The hostel was perfect for me. I was traveling solo. I could easily enjoy this hostel with a few friends or my girlfriend if we stayed there. Close walk to grocery store, the swinging old lady bridge and many other sights to see and great local food to eat. I saw Art, the man who runs the hostel, about the...

My wife (of 43 years) and I just spent a delightful 10 nights at Poppy Hostel. This was our first experience staying in a hostel. We stayed in the double room. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. The two shared bathrooms were modern and kept very clean. Poppy is located in a residential area of Otrabanda, within walking...

I gotta say that beyond the place itself, the great company and guidance offered by the owner was outstanding. The location is good, few blocks to get the main bridge of Curaçao. The place is clean and comfy. Thanks to the excellent advises of Art (the owner) we had a blast there.. Highly recommended place.

Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Art, the owner, was very helpful in helping me during my reservation. He also gave me options on how to pay, as I'm limited when it comes to making online payments because of restrictions in my country.

Poppy hostel is more like a shared house than a hostel. There is no reception, bar or anything like that. What you get is a house with a shared living room, kitchen and 2 bathrooms. And we enjoyed this very much, it felt like our temporary house in Curacao. We could prepare breakfast and cook our own dinners when we...

Hi Michael, We're glad you "get" the Poppy Concept. Sorry that you booked via Hostelworld. Had you found me directly (by searching for "backpacker curacao" for instance) you would have found my #bookdirect website. We always give the best deals here. Bon Bini bek to Korsou any time! Danki, Art
