Friendly place with amazing view!
We stopped one night in Guatapé to enjoy the view from the famous rock and it was well worth it. Galleria is located 3km or a 6min-ish busride from the actual town but right at the foot of the rock. The view from the hostel is amazing and the owner was young, chill and friendly. Immediate access to two decent roadside restaurants with affordable local dishes. Best thing was the view over the lake and the rock from the hostel patio. Only improvement suggestion is that our sheets could have been more clean.
