La Casa Amarilla - Hostel Mompós - Colombia

Way overdue, there is finally a budget option for travelers in Mompós. La Casa Amarilla is a large, renovated colonial mansion with views over the Magdalena River. The kioscos are in a great place, out where you can enjoy an ice cold beer and watch the howler monkeys. Prices, as you would expect, increase during Semana Santa, but the rest of the year they are reasonable. The mansion consists of two dormitories (three- and four-people rooms), each with private bathroom, and two private rooms with double beds (one with en-suite). For a basic dorm bed, prices average at $8 per bed. If your sights are set a little higher however, La Casa Amarilla has six luxurious suites on offer, prices averaging at $44 per person, including breakfast and WiFi. La Casa Amarilla is the backpacker choice. The British owner has installed a TV and DVD player in the second entry room, renovated the garden, put in a communal kitchen, and has done his best to make this a place where you want to kick back and chill for a few days.
