Casa Familiar Turistica, Popayan, Colombia

Casa Familiar Turistica (RNT:43839), opened in 1999 by owner Nina Leal, and is currently one of the few backpacker friendly options in Popayan. With a great location only a couple of blocks from the centre of town, the hostel is right in the heart of the old town.

With simple, clean rooms set within a typical building, the hostel has retained much of the house's Colonial charm with shuttered windows and spacious rooms.

Many previous guests have left messages to other travellers with recommendations and warnings regarding nearby attractions and as such, the hostel is a good source of travel information.
With only four rooms, Casa Familiar Turistica is a fairly small and quiet place with rooms ranging in size from 2 beds to a 5-bed dormitory. All rooms have shared bathrooms.

There is a laundry service available for 3,000 Pesos per kilo with a minimum load of 6 kilos.

The kitchen is available for guest use although the cost of gas used must be paid for.

There is no real social area although there is a tv and sofas through the back where guests sometimes relax.
How to get there...
Casa Familiar Turistica is right in the centre of Popayan, a block and a half from the cathedral. It's on the corner of Carrera 5 and Calle 2 and although not more than half an hours walk from the bus station, it's easiest reached by taxi for 5,000 Pesos.
