One of the nicest things about travelling when you’re young is how communal everything is. From your sleeping quarters to your eateries, feeling lonely isn’t usually a problem during treks around the Americas. So, how does everyone feel about a giant communal hammock overlooking the mountains of Sierra Nevada?
The hammock and hostel it’s associated with, Casa Elemento, are located in Colombia in a mountain town within the Sierra Nevada called Minca, which is famous for its coffee, cool temperatures and friendly atmosphere.[related_articles]5514,14419,27714,11662[/related_articles]
The hostel also organises tours and activities in the area including abseiling down a waterfall, rock climbing, hiking and even donkey hire. It’s fully equipped with a pool and bar too, should you get parched from all of your hanging out.
To stay in the standard six-person dorm it’s around $23AUD per night and you can book here.
