My wife (of 43 years) and I just spent a delightful 10 nights at Poppy Hostel. This was our first experience staying in a hostel. We stayed in the double room. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. The two shared bathrooms were modern and kept very clean. Poppy is located in a residential area of Otrabanda, within walking...

I gotta say that beyond the place itself, the great company and guidance offered by the owner was outstanding. The location is good, few blocks to get the main bridge of Curaçao. The place is clean and comfy. Thanks to the excellent advises of Art (the owner) we had a blast there.. Highly recommended place.

Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Art, the owner, was very helpful in helping me during my reservation. He also gave me options on how to pay, as I'm limited when it comes to making online payments because of restrictions in my country.

Poppy hostel is more like a shared house than a hostel. There is no reception, bar or anything like that. What you get is a house with a shared living room, kitchen and 2 bathrooms. And we enjoyed this very much, it felt like our temporary house in Curacao. We could prepare breakfast and cook our own dinners when we...
