Welcome!

Guesthouse Un Pied a Terre wants to be the first choice of hostel in Paramaribo for the traveller on a budget, who wants to have an authentic surinamese experience while saving money!

Our colonial style building is more than 100 years old. It is peacefully situated in a domestic area only 10 minutes walk from the historical center, which is listed as World Heritage by UNESCO. After a good nights sleep, you can enjoy yourself or the company of other guests on our cozy terraces. This is where you can read a book and enjoy a beer. You can also share your experiences with other travellers and get advice for your further journey in return. Or simply watch the local life of the surinamese as it goes by in the street.

Our staff might also be able to help you plan your way ahead. No matter if it is about getting a taxi to the good restaurant or specific advice about the interior – all you have to do is ask! We are experienced in advising all kinds of travellers:

Backpackers off the beaten track. Adventureous couples on their honeymoon. People making their way through South America on bike. Families having a quick stay over between two flights. Tourists using us as a base during a month long vacation, where they go on multiple tours all over the country.

No matter how you like to travel, we are looking forward to welcome you to what we hope will become your home away from home – your Un Pied a Terre!
