Everything was great in Renacer! Very friendly staff, a beautiful place with a great diversity of plants and trees, nice rooms and really useful information about activities and trips in the region. Looking forward to come back soon

It is not too far from the center, 15-20 min walk. The bed was super! Nicest one we found in Colombia. You can make nice walks and explore the area. Breakfast was not that super and bit expensive. Don't take granola, you get Kellogg's... Nice communal areas, in- and outdoor. Taxi ride to hostal is 5000

I loved this histal. It's a bit of a walk from the centre of town but the road is safe and it's worth it. The room my sister and I had was spacious and clean with a big bathroom. The hot water was patchy but I found that throughout Colombia. Renacer staff are friendly and helpful, a decent breakfast was...

We camped at Renacer for a night. The place and set up is amazing, truly. Very comfortable and practical, with good places to hang out both indoor and outdoor. Cant speak for the rooms obviously but the camp spot was very nice and we could get wifi in the tent, which is always a bonus. Showers were good, hot and...

Well priced, excellent staff, well organized tool options. I called to make reservations and they had a hard time emailing me. The staff immediately found me on Whats App and notified me they need to verify e-mail. Just a start to the excellent service. We arrived late, but they were ready for us. Food was excellent. The tour for horseback...

I originally made a reservation a a well-reviewed hostal in the center of Villa de Leyva. But friends who had just returned from a trip to Colombia raved about the Renacer Guesthouse, and so I changed my plans for our 2-night stay. After arriving, I had a few doubts. Much of Villa de Leyva's reputation rests upon its pristine colonial...
