Casa del Pavo Real in Review

Shall we get on with it?

It’s time to delve in to our transparent criteria and show you why we love Casa del Pavo Real, and why we’re excited to give you reason to fall in love with it, too.

1. Sustainability

If you like to keep your footprint small whilst travelling, then you will thank Casa del Pavo Real for their efforts.

Not only do they offer a free breakfast, but many of the things on offer are homemade.

This includes fresh bread, yogurt and marmalade.

Can we get a ‘mmmmmmm’.

Any fruit and vegetable you taste has also been bought from local providers. You’ll notice the difference in taste and colour.

Plastic use is kept to a minimum thanks to the glass bottled drinks. A local artist even takes the glass to use in their work!

No need to worry about the safety of water here. Just use the refill system to save on waste and money.

The cherry on top is that Casa del Pavo Real has a ‘special system’ which will make a fertiliser out of your food waste.

Note: the old saying ‘your eyes are bigger than your stomach’ still stands. Only prepare what you can eat!

2. Lush Green and Traditional Design

Imagine of mix of modern white and traditional Colombian colourful tiles and wood. It’s a great start.

Stir in a lot of green plants and suddenly an elegant, tropical vibe comes alive.

Casa del Pavo Real is one of the most instagrammable hostels out there.

The bright spaces and open plan bring everything together to create a gorgeous place to unwind. This is the first big project of a 25 year old designer called Marianna.

We think you will agree she did a fantastic job.

We should probably excite you by telling you about the swimming pool outside.

If you prefer there is a balcony overlooking the pool and garden.

The joint social area and kitchen is a sociable design solo travellers will appreciate.

The large family table is perfect for getting to know people over breakfast, lunch or dinner. A community table is always a big plus for every hostel. We consider it almost a must-have.

3. The Best Cook in the Village

As already mentioned, the design of Casa del Pavo Real is unique. Especially in Palomino.

It’s the location of this hostel which we think is special.

The area is quiet, with few surrounding neighbours, so there’s no question you’ll rest easy here.

Having an in-house restaurant is always a plus when you don’t fancy venturing out for dinner.

Chef Alex is well known as one of the best cooks in the village.

He rustles up some seriously tasty dishes you just have to try.

Now there really is no reason to leave in search of food, especially when its open for 3 meals a day.

4. Backpacker, Couples, Families – the vibes

The vibes at Casa Pavo Real are always flowing thanks to the mix of travellers it attracts.

Alongside your usual backpackers, couples and families love to stay here. There’s also a lovely mix of Colombian and foreign guests.

Although it’s certainly a place to come to relax, no one says you can’t relax and mingle.

We absolutely love the giant ‘family table’ in the dining area. This is the place to get social. And what better way than over food… really good food!

Every Friday there is a BBQ with 2 for 1 beers to help loosen the tongue.

If you’re around all weekend you can also enjoy a Saturday Happy Hour in the evening.

If you are looking for us, we are most likely chilling at the Swimming Pool!

5. Ask the staff

There’s a lot to be said for a small team that work well together and are passionate about what they do.

This is how it is at the best hostel in Palomino, Colombia.

Nine out of the eleven team members are local.

This is because the owners believe it is important to offer good job opportunities to locals.

Just to make it interesting, two of the members are from Switzerland. Perhaps you’ll be heading there next?!

As good teams do, all members work together to get done whatever needs doing.

We like that.
