Poppy Hostel is a very nice place to stay on Curacao. City Center in walking distance and supermarket around the corner. Really, really nice people to meet there! Especially Lilian made my stay there an enjoyable one.

I've just stayed @ Poppy's for 12 days... Initially it was planned to be shorter but I extended because it was such a pleasant place to stay! Art the owner dealt with the initial contact and took me through the information, booking and confirmation process easily and efficiently. His response times are super quick. We met a few times during...

Many thanks (masha danki) for being such a friendly and respectful guest Dainan! The whole Poppy Hostel concept runs on travelers like yourself; keen to visit the island on a shoestring without sacrificing the local flavor that comes with staying in the center of Willemstad. Glad you chose us and thanks for extending your stay. What really impressed me was...

I will compare to 2 other budget lodgings close to the touristy center (Punda). Poppy is a restored UNESCO home, where the owner rents 4 or 5 rooms. I like the location, but I'll get into the pros and cons below: LOCATION It's just a half-minute walk off the main drag that goes through Otrobanda. Carnaval passes through here this...

Everything was perfect! Lilian, my host was super friendly, nice and accommodating. Poppy is great, quite near town (10 min walk) but far enough away from the other tourists that you get a feel for the real Willemstad and the locals. There's a beach in walking distant by one of the resorts, but I'm super happy i rented a car...

Hi Hattie, Yes Lilian is our Poppy Dushi (sweetheart)! Nice to hear you enjoyed Poppy and it's sweet-spot location. Renting a car is definitely recommended on Curacao and if you look around, it will not cost too much more than a night stay and parking is free! Just don't leave anything in the car, ever. Lilian and I are happy...

We had a great time. Thanks to Lilian and her time. We'll situated in Otrabanda as we took the buses every day which is not very far. Shops around for food etc. We had a double room, WLAN worked fine and good. If you need to cook, everything is provided. Nice and safe neighborhood.

Nice small and quite simple hostel. The staff was very nice and helpful. Thanks again. The hostel is located quite close to the centre of Willemstad. Approx. 5 minutes by foot to floating bridge and a few minutes more to the city centre.

The hostel was perfect for me. I was traveling solo. I could easily enjoy this hostel with a few friends or my girlfriend if we stayed there.

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.
