Platypus for sale


After 19 years in the business, I just celebrated my 60th anniversary and I'm retiring.
Love my work but it is enough time in one place, I want to hit the road again . Asia is waiting for me !
Platypus is the oldest hostel in Colombia. It has the best comments in all the traveling books ( Lonely Planet, Foot Prints, Rough Guide, Reise Know-how, Reise Compass, Viva travel Guides, Petit Fute...etc.

It is working at its full capacity. It includes 2 houses and a 300 square meters piece of land next to the older house.
