Why Steel Horse Colombia?
The hostel name “Steel Horse” refers to our beloved motorcycles which carried us along the continent and allowed us to discover this magical place, and also our passion for Horses.
As travellers ourselves we know the feeling of arriving at a hostel feeling tired and in need of a hot shower and cold beer. We have designed our farm retreat especially for YOU! Steel Horse is a haven for fellow adventurers to relax, recharge, meet other like minded people and have a good time. We specially chose this location due to the beauty of the surrounding countryside and the huge number of local activities and places to explore. Our farm is in Filandia, recently awarded as the most scenic and cultural town in Colombia! If you are travelling on your own motorbike or vehicle you are welcome to use our undercover veranda to fix, repair or maintain your bike. We have lots of tools for you to borrow and can point you in the right direction of mechanics, welders or motorcycle dealers/ parts/ tyre shops if needed!
We cook family style group meals in the evenings and buffet style breakfasts in the mornings (when we have 3 or more people who request it). We also have a large guest kitchen for you to use and can also recommend many fantastic restaurants in Filandia if you prefer to eat out!
