Staying at Colombian hostel was like staying at a friend's house! I stayed in the 6 bed mixed dorm. Mauricio and Carolina the owners, are really friendly and will make your stay extra special. They will help you with any questions you may have. The breakfast was nice and different every day, hostel always clean, good location near bars, restaurants and supermarkets, 10 mn walk from the MIO buses. Mauricio is a good dancer too! I really enjoyed my stay :-)
Such a great hostel. The owners were lovely, the place was always spotlessly clean, good breakfasts and a really fun, laidback vibe. Good bathrooms and breakfasts- a winner!
Staff were excellent and really shaped a great atmosphere at the hostel. Carolina's home cooked breakfasts were delicious and the salsa lessons were fun :)
Very nice hostel, the standard is like in a hotel (great showers and very big bathrooms). And best breakfast I ever had in a hostel. Very friendly and helpful staff.

The owner Mauricio made such a huge effort with me while I was here. He spent an entire Sunday taking me to do stuff, from meeting his friends, to playing Sapo, to going out Salsa dancing. The whole time he was making sure I was involved & having a great time. I ended up extending my stay in Cali because I didn't want to leave the hostel; I was always treated as a friend, not a client.. The hostel itself is very safe, has very nice rooms, a great kitchen and is close to restaurants and the metro

Great place and awesome stag
The place itself was good, typical hostel, but the owner Mauricio is awesome and really makes the whole thing worth it. He can point you to all the good things including salsa classes. Cali in itself is a fun place to stay and this hostel is in a nice area a few blocks away from a main street and about two blocks away from a grocery store. Relaxed and fun atmosphere in a community neighborhood so it doesn't feel like a busy city. Definitely worth a look.
This hostel is a excellent hostel and I enjoyed my stay here. The upstairs porch is large and on cooler days, the spa pool would be good. Breakfast was good and the staff were excellent, although the cleaner can be a little loud, which echoes around the brick house. It is quite some distance from the bus terminal or centro, but there are plenty of restaurants, bars and supermarkets within minutes of walking. Security could be better with lockers, and a washing service would make life easier
When the boss actually also comes out with you at night to the Salsa Clubs and negotiates the taxi fares, how much better can it get???
Great hostel and staff were so helpful and friendly! As soon as we arrived we got a complimentary drink to welcome us to the hostel and one morning when we missed breakfast, the owner brought us each a cupcake!Thanks to everyone at Colombian Hostel!!
