This brand new, family run posada is located on a 2 hectare farm on the edge of Sogamoso. The beautiful historic house and farm has been in the family for over 80 years. Owned and run by Gilma together with her sons Felipe and Juan, they are fulfilling a lifelong dream of running a hostel and showcasing the spectacular surrounding region to people from overseas.

Both Felipe and Juan have travelled extensively, which fueled their desire to welcome travellers to Colombia and their home, under the philosophy of 'mi casa es su casa' (my home is your home).

Although still in the early stages, Felipe and Juan have many plans for further development of more rooms and common areas for guests. Their vision for the hostel is for it to be a place for relaxing and exploring and to this end, ask that you respect their no drugs and alcohol policy.
