It is a little difficult to find a cheap place inthis town what is central!

There are 2 friendly places!

Basic but you can park your bike in the courtyard inside!
12.000,- without TV, 16.000,- with TV, shared bathroom

Hotel Pass Home, Calle 5 Cr.10-114, Popayan Cauca, Tel - Cel.: 316 448 9513
You have to park your bike one block away in the Parqueadero, 2.500,- a day (24 hours), ask there is an other one who is charging 5.000,- Pesos!
The rooms are with bathroom and Tv, very clean and friendly place!

Through Colombia...

Hi, I rode my Honda 125 from Cartagena across to Popayan and south to Ecuador on my way to Tierra del Fuego last year. You might find something interesting or helpful on my BLOG at www.simonganmdolfi.com
Message me if you have questions.
Have fun,

Popayán hotel in centro by the plaza

HOTEL CASA DEL VIRREY - this is right on the plaza on Calle 4.
Address: Cl 4 5-78.
For 2 people with a queen bed and private bathroom in a huge room it cost us US$ 27.50 and they allowed us to park the bikes inside the courtyard.

Mentioned above - this hostel is a super good option with a Jewish family. They are very nice and keep it clean. They even clean the rooms every day which a lot of budget hostels would never dream of. Contrary to the above stated they DO have free parking for up to 10 bikes. A room including TV and hot water cost 16.000 pesos.

I highly recommend this place.
