Palomino is full of hostels, and sometimes it's difficult to choose one. I'm going to make that decision a bit easier for you.
Sup Travellers?! Welcome to another article in the brand new segment on this site called "Trinikid Travels". Trinikid is most well known as an entertainment blog, but as an entertainment blogger, I have been given the opportunity to work in amazing destinations all around the world. And the most amazing part of this is that I'm only just getting started.
I am currently working from Colombia. I am now in Medellin but I just came from a three-week trip to Palomino. I immersed myself in the small backpacker community, getting to know everything there is to know about it. Frankly, there isn't much. It's a very small place. It's basically a stretch of dirt road filled with hostels, hotels, and restaurants.
One of the most difficult things to do in Palomino is to choose the hostel that is right for you because....there are a lot of hostels. I'm going to make the decision a bit easier for you by listing three, and only three of the best hostels in the small town. Let's get right into it.
Hostels are individual to the person and whether it's good or not is based on your personal preference. Some people like party hostels, others like chill and social hostels while others like a good mix of both. El Zoo mixes all these attributes well. It is not a crazy party hostel where people are drinking at every hour of the day but it's also not too chill and quiet for its own good.
It has a nice little pool, a volleyball net and a nice atmosphere at the bar at night.
Dreamer Hostel is hands down the biggest, fanciest, and oldest hostel in the community. It's the hostel everyone recommends and the place to go if you want to party. It's the best hostel in the city in terms of facilities. Some people say that the hostel is too big and at times it can be difficult to connect with people, while others say it's the perfect place to meet people. Whatever, the case is, if you want to party, Dreamer Hostel is the place to be.
I stayed at this hostel for two weeks and it's so much more different than the first two hostels that were mentioned. Bella Flor is hands down, not a party hostel. It is one of the most chilled-out hostels I've ever been to. There is no bar, no parties or anything lively like that. However, the hostel is almost ideal for meeting new people. The hostel encourages more personal and deep connections with other travelers. It's also a great hostel to wind down and just relax. The staff there are like mommas and they treat all the guests with love and care.
