Stayed in a private room in the courtyard area. Only stayed one night. Room and bathrooms were clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Good neighborhood. Close to San Antonio and a main thoroughfare with lots of restaurants and bars. Wifi only works in the main part of the house; it didn't reach the private room, kitchen and courtyard areas....

I absolutely loved this hostel and had so much fun here! I intended to stay for only a few days and I ended up staying 2 weeks because I liked it so much! The staff is so friendly, it's in a great area, very clean, great big kitchen for use, and lots of beers available at any time, which is...

Absolutely recommendable, very friendly staff, free salsa lessons (if you're up for that). Good location, short taxi ride to the bus terminal. Has a kitchen, wifi, etc. everything a hostel needs. Nice little court yard and also front yard to hang around every time of the day or night.

Great hostel. At 20,000 it's on the expensive side. But it's clean, tidy, comfortable beds & the staff are super friendly. I'd visit again! They offer free salsa lessons in the evenings & the staff also speak english - which added to my experience in terms of onward travel organisation etc.

Stayed at this place for only one night in the private room and really liked the place. The hostel is in what seems like a converted house and is very spacious. The common areas are nice and the staff are also very helpful. The location is great as it's close to the nightlife yet not too close that there is...

The staff is extremely friendly, they remember all guests and call them by their name. I had the bad luck to be there at the end of Semana Santa when about everything in Cali was closed and no salsa lessons available. Therefore I didn't really enjoy my stay in Cali, fortunately the hostel was a nice place to linger around....

A hostels are pretty much the same the world over. What makes them awesome is location and the people that run them. This one has BOTH! I went to Cali about two years ago to learn Cali Style salsa. For you dancers out there, the place to learn is SWING LATINO - the BEST. For the casual dancer, Pelican Larry...

“There's not a lot of storage space inside the rooms, if you like to spread your stuff out, you might want to consider the single room. It's also small, but it's ALL YOURS, and it was very reasonable.”
