Jolie endroit avec douches et toilettes propre .
Mais attention aux prix c’est vraiment très cher !! Une nuit en van à deux : 60000 pesos
Et le pire le prix d’une lessive pour 3kg 56000 pesos !!!!!
C’est profiter des touristes !!!

Stayed here in our camper for 4 nights. The bathrooms were fantastic(toilet seat, toilet paper, hand soap, paper towels, hot water and clean showers). You can buy breakfast, dinner, drinks, it is good food and reasonably priced. Got our laundry done here, it was a little expensive 13k/kg I think). Short walk into town, locked gate at night. There was doe loud music playing until 2:30am on a Thursday night. Common kitchen was great as were the common seating areas. Would go back for sure. 30K pp/pn🍁

Yes the shower is nice, but for 30000pp and we can not fill our tank, aber only sells drinking water ?!? I think it is overpriced, we left After 1 Night

This is still a really wonderful place to stay in Villa de Leyva! I took a private room, which is 90.000 per night, and had a beautiful view as well. They have dorm options too, or camping & parking for overlanders. I got quite a few mosquito bites just from sitting in the garden, which is partly why I chose a room this time.

Their food options are great, and breakfast is included if you stay in the rooms/dorms (not sure about camping). Sadly a few of the local outdoor activities are now closed (the Laguna hike/the nearby waterfall that’s in all the guidebooks). But the super friendly staff pointed out some other waterfalls I could ride to, which were also beautiful. I liked staying here a lot, and would definitely recommend it.

Report Check-In

As described, very relaxed and nice communal area. Showers perrrrfect! Hot and good pressure. Mosquitoes in grass a bit annoying though.
Short walk to town. 30.000 pp/pn

At first I didn’t want to be so far out of town. But in the end, I’m glad we spent our 3 nights of Villa here. I wasn’t ready to leave. We walked into town twice and it really isn’t far (15 minutes downhill to get there). Renacer will also call a taxi for 10,000 COP each way. Okay, about Renacer itself. Parking is on a grassy lawn, where you can back in for privacy. There is room for two rigs (so recommend you reserve ahead). Possibly the nicest campground showers yet, with really hot water and immaculately clean. Nice seating areas in the sun or shade, with beautiful views of the hills in the distance. Hammocks to rest in. Equipped kitchen for cooking and doing dishes. Inside “living room” with TV (World Cup viewing!). Lots of WiFi connections depending on where you are on the property. Restaurant open for breakfast and dinner (not lunch). 10,000 COP pancake breakfast with orange juice. Several options for dinner. I had the bolognese pasta which was comforting on a cold night. We paid 60,000 COP (30,000/adult) for camping. We weren’t charged for Caspian. We met so many kind travelers here from all over the world. Only downside was biting insects in the grass from mid-morning until it cools down in the evening (locals call them moscos, but they aren’t traditional mosquitoes). They swarm and will bite all over your legs and feet, so I wore pants and socks at all times once I figured out how bad they were. Would return here for sure!

Really nice spot to camp. A little pricey: 28 000 per person, but all the facilities and the staff is great. Nice kitchen, hot shower and clean bathroom. 20 min walk from the center.

As described. Charming and well organized spaces. Indoor&outdoor. Hot shower is excellent. We found it to be too expensive @ 28,000COP pp for a family of six… no discount or family rate so shortened our stay.

Nice spot with hot showers, wifi was ok, not always super fast. The vibe is amazing, nice music and the guy at the reception was kind. Kitchen with 8 pits to cook. Big rig friendly. We paid 30k pppn.

Report Check-In

Price is now 28k per person. But this place is wonderful. Our favorite “hostel camping” experience so far. Best hot water showers (so far) since we left the USA. Although don’t use the showers next to the communal area, use the one closer to the reception.

Strong WiFi, clean kitchen area, great group of people. Highly recommend.

Gran lugar para acampar en Villa De Leyva.
Un sitio seguro, agradable, limpio y tranquilo. En término de espacio para acampar con propio vehículo no es tan grande, sin embargo para 2 o 3 vehículos se puede ajustar bien. Baños limpios y excelente atención. Vale la pena quedarse aquí. Además es Pet Friendly. Costo de $28,000 x persona x noche.

Loved it! Stayed 4 nights instead of the planned one. Good kitchen, clean bathrooms with hot showers, good wifi and very nice personal! The gardens and common areas are beautifully setup and the rooms look beautiful, too. Still 18.000 ppn, but if you stay 4 nights the breakfast is included at the last morning.

As everybody has written already: this is the place to stay in beautiful Villa de Leyva. We are in a campervan VW T5 and could camp on the grassy spot right next to the building. The WiFi reached our van. Nice and well maintained hostel.

Good location walking distance to town (though lots of semi-aggressive dogs on the way down the hill!). Warm shower and clean bathroom, parking lot is flat. The town itself is lovely so being so close is definitely the best part. WiFi didn’t really work in the parking lot. 18,000 pesos/person for car camping

Great place for Overlanders, saw 3 others whilst here! Still 18k pppn, super relaxed vibe really nice views and a cool nights sleep. 10 Min walk to town and lovely hot showers.

Report Check-In

Highly recommended! Very well run. Clean bathrooms, hot showers, peaceful at night, nice garden areas to walk through; reliable wifi; quiet hotel & small onsite restaurant serves a good breakfast & dinner. Elwin, Fernando. and the rest of the staff were most welcoming and worked hard to see that all campers and hotel guests enjoyed their stays. To address earlier comment regarding music: restaurant plays low-volume, Bossanova and soft jazz through outdoor speakers between 6:00 - 9:30pm. we stayed at another campground in town; but Renecer is, by far, our favorite. Price: 18,000/adult, includes electricity.

Wonderful place as per earlier comments. The best. Loved the clean washrooms. Edwin hooked us up with electricity and we filled with water. Our 19ft camper truck with 3.5m clearance was fine but anything longer might struggle. Stayed 3 days at 18K ppn.

Hôtel de backpackers. Places petites et peu nombreuses pour les véhicules (environ 3). Possibilité de brancher le véhicule à l’électricité, bon wifi, douches chaudes, cuisines à disposition, café gratuit, chien accepté. Environ à 20 minutes à pied du village. 18 000 pesos par personne, par nuit. Un petit déjeuner nous a été offert après 5 nuits. En bas du chemin se trouve une petite tienda qui vend des bières fraîches pour 2 500 pesos.
Endroit parfait pour les petits véhicules pour plusieurs nuits

Such a lovely place - so relaxing and so many facilities to use.
Very clean bathrooms. Very hot shower. You can use the kitchen. You can use a barbecue. You have lots of space in the common areas, hammocks, etc. Staff is incredible friendly. You can even get breakfast or have dinner there as they also have a restaurant. Also tours or horseriding available. Short walk into town. Highly recommended!
Planned one stayed three nights.

This is a great place as has been mentioned......no issues with music at all as previously mentioned. Cost was 18000pp but we were happy to pay thd higher than normal cost. The place us clean, quiet with plenty of space for camping or campers. There are plenty if areas to relax and the kitchen is on if the best we have cone across. One note, the sign on the main road is hard to see, basically the entrance is up a short, crappy dirt road...about 100mtrs so dont let the look of the entrance put you off....it was one of our best places to stay

Great place with friendly staff. The showers are very nice and hot, Internet was fast, but does not work from the parking area. #overlanderproblems Music was not blasting as another commenter said.

Report Check-In

Price still 18,000 per person with a free breakfast after the 4th night. Hot showers, clean bathrooms, pretty grounds. Unfortunately, the hostel has speakers on the outside of the building near the camping area so we listened to music from about 8am to 9pm every day, not a big deal but not a plus either. If you prefer a hostel style facility this one is nice, we prefer Mi Refugio because it is closer in town and quieter, but couldn’t stay there this time because of road construction.

Je confirme endroit charmant et très tranquille le weekend. Tout est propre et soigné. pour la lessive prévoir du temps car ils n'ont pas de machine à sécher le linge. 15 min à pied du village. prix 18000 cop par nuit et par personne. karaxama 😎

Stayed here four nights with our small van. Perfect spot to relax and explore the surrounding of Villa de Leyva. Town is in walking distance and has nice bars and Restaurants. If you stay four nights (or longer) you get a free breakfast (americano). Tea/Coffee is free the whole day. Easy to find a leveled spot close to electricity. Recommended stay.

Report Check-In

We camped in the gravel parking field. It’s not easy to find a leveled spot but ok. Infrastructure is nice and all clean. Nice areas to hang out. WIFI is poor and unstable. The staff is friendly and helpful. They gave us lot of information about Villa de Leyva and the surroundings. They also organize tours and help you to organize your trips by yourself. We payed 18000 pesos per people per night.

Ditto. Nice place, price now 18k pp. Laundry is 4k per kg. There is a grassy space up by reception that had two vehicles and could fit tents and they let us stay in parking area near cabanas; at first there was another overlander rig but they left after our first night. Not that level but not extreme. Able to plug into cabanas. We are 26' long and turning around inside the lot was a bit of a challenge. Super nice bathrooms/showers. There are a few mean dogs on in the alley when you walk down to go into town.

Echoing everyone else when I say this is a beautiful spot! There weren't many people there when we stayed so it was extra tranquil. Seems like there are only 2 spots for cars up near the reception but, if it's full, they may let you stay in the parking area. 16k per person with wifi, bathrooms, hot showers, and electricity. (If you're looking to get some exercise I highly recommend renting a bike from them and going to all the little tourist attractions in the area - especially the fossil museum and the winery).

Great location. There are three bathrooms and the one with best hot water is next to the dorm room. Don't set up your tent on the pad next to kitchen and hammock area as can get a bit loud. Other areas to choose from. Internet could be irritatingly slow at times.

Great spot 14000 per person, included electrical hook up. Hot clean showers, well equipped kitchen, super friendly staff. Used the maps provided to make a great 20km round trip walk to many of the local sites. Also for great views of the town ask for a copy of the laminated map and hike up into the hills, directly behind the hostel.

Great place to stay, specially after some days of wild camping here you'll get all services you might need to recover. The Owner, Oscar is a passionated overlander himself and has plenty of information about road travelling in Colombia. Nice common areas and all services work fine. Definetively recommended.

AKA Colombian Highlands - this is a fantastic place to stay and probably the best hostal we visited to date. Plenty to do, lots of space, great facilities and a quiet camping area. First hot shower we'd had in months and our first experience with an honor-system beer fridge. There are several nice grassy areas where you can park if you sleep in your car.

Beautiful hostel with grassy areas for camping. Clean bathrooms with hot (!) showers. Free WIFI. Common kitchen with refrigerator, book exchange, common area with TV. Belongs to the group Colombian Highlands. Laundry service (5000 COP / machine). Very nice staff. Great view down the valley. Just 10 minutes walk to the center. Bakery with excellent Pan integral at the bottom of the road to the hostel.

Alternative accommodation:

Villa de Leyva, Camping San Jorge, N 73.51862 W 5.64840 26,000 COP / day (~ 11,80 Euros). Located about 1.5 km from the center. Said tohave very nice bathrooms too. Unfortunately, you can only stay in the parking lot with your car.
