Casa de Francois San Agustin

La Dormitory Casa de Francois San Agustin Casa de Francois is a little piece of heaven in San Agustin, a 5 star hotel for backpackers or people who want to stay away from the city and relax.

Set on a hill overlooking San Agustin, Francois has created this amazing place: an eco-friendly lodge by embedding bottles into concrete to create the different structures of the hostel.

The view, the friendliness of Francois, the homemade food (vegetables are from the garden)... La Casa de Francois is not just a hostel, it's a place where you feel at home and will find difficult to leave.

PORTRAIT

Francois travelled to Colombia 18 years ago as part of a South American trip and gost stuck in San Agustin. He first started as the owner of the famous Pachanka Bar in San Agustin (which is now called Territorio Libre). Having friends and then friends of friends coming regularly to stay in San Agustin, Francois started to charge a little fee for people to stay in his appartment. With his sense of hospitality and his friendliness, people soon asked him to start a hostel. After resisting to the idea for a while, Francois decided to launch the business and opened to the well named Casa de Francois in 1998. The hostel can now host 18 people and offers camping facilities.
