Explora Hostels is located in La Candelaria historic district. Our main objective is to offer a hotel experience at a hostel price. We have rooms for 2, 4 or 6 people, because having more than 6 people would just be too much to have a good night’s sleep. The hostel is located in a fully renovated house, equipped with the best showers and bed in the area! We have a super clean hostel thanks to our cleaning staff!! We would love to have at our hostel!

About Explora Hostels

Explora Hostels is designed based on the explora experience, our objective is to make our hostel as welcoming to our customers as possible. That’s why we believe that our hostel should feel like home to every backpacker that comes through our accommodation.
We have hot water in the showers, and enough clean bathrooms for everyone in the hostel. We also created a social area at the back of the hostel where you have access to food in our kitchen/bar which is open 24/7 for our guests.

If you are traveling solo, we can arrange for a tour guide to accompany you through the neighborhood, it’s a backpacker that came for a few days and decided to stay. If you require any guidelines on how to locate yourself in the city please do not hesitate to ask our staff which are fully capable of giving you advice or instructions to get to places.

Additionally, we arrange parties with other hostels so backpackers can get together and enjoy. We can also arrange or help you coordinate a trip to Andrés Carne de Res, the famous restaurant which everyone remembers or to Monserrate the religious mountain top nearby.

Finally, we have hair dryers, towels for hire if you forget yours. Please note that we have public PCs, DVDs and WiFi in our hostel. Nevertheless, if there is something you require and we do not have it in our hostel, please let us know and we will assist you to get it.
