Posada Don Carlos, Ciudad Bolivar , Venezuela

Posada Don Carlos is a beautifully restored and converted mansion right in the heart of the colourful Ciudad Bolívar . The hostel opened in 2004 and is still a work in progress - though you wouldn't know it to see it! Ideally situated and with all the necessary conveniences, the Posada is clearly already making a name for itself in travelling circles.
Set around two light, garden courtyards with immaculate antique furniture and decoration and friendly, helpful local staff on hand at all times, ‘Posada Don Carlos' won't fail to leave a lasting impression.

The rooms themselves are very comfortable and spotlessly clean, many of which over-look the courtyards and all of which have their own en-suite bathroom. They are all designed and decorated to fit with the general ‘ colonial-with-a-modern-twist ' style and will guarantee you a relaxed stay in a fabulous hostel.
The hostel has currently 10 private en-suite rooms, 2 beds to 4 beds, and prices range between US$17.50 and US$40 per room.

Either air-conditioning or electric fans are set up in each room and the sheltered courtyard also provides a cool escape from the mid-day sun.

Excellent home cooked meals are available most nights if you prefer to eat in, and hearty breakfasts are prepared each morning between 7am and 11am. The grand lounge room and bar is open daily too, allowing you the chance to have a drink and a chat with Armando the cheery barman.

There are also self-catering facilities including laundry basins and a guest kitchen available.

Free internet is available 24hours and the TV room is well stocked with DVDs along with the usual cable channels.

For those wishing to drive to the posada, there is also a garage available for you to park your car.

The hostel also offers a tour booking service for the surrounding area and activities and as the owner himself is the coordinator of a local tour company – who better to ask!
