El Rio is owned by Ben and Guy, two English pals who met at university many moons ago. Following a couple of backpacking trips through South America, they fell in love with Colombia and decided to build their ideal hostel in the wilderness next to Rio Buritaca.

The ethos behind El Rio Hostel is simple: Combine excellent facilities and service with a strong emphasis on socialising. We aim to do this at an affordable price, whilst being as environmentally friendly as possible.
