The Colombian Home Hostal is a very nice place close to the 'Parque del Perro' in the south west of Calí. This zone is calm and safe, at night, you will find many Colombians going out at the 'Parque del Perro'. In close vicinity, there is a delicious local restaurant (El Quijote), two supermarkets and several bars. The rooms are...

“I was in the room off of the living room and it was a tad noisy but I enjoyed being around fellow travelers. If you want more private space, ask for a room upstairs or in the back.”
