Mauricio is so incredibly hospitable! Changed my mattress when I wanted a softer one, helped me with my cooking just to be nice, took us all out salsa dancing... Just great vibes and so helpful all around! Beautiful facilities in a wonderful neighborhood. Only complaint is the place could really use more toilets. Really frustrating waiting to pee while other people were in the shower every morning!!!

I had a great week long stay at Columbia Hostel. Mauricio, Carolina and David where wonderful hosts. Always friendly and helpful. Mauricio took us all out Salsa dancing several times and the staff always made room for whatever antics we guests were up to including dragging the furniture aside for yoga and dance classes. I highly recommend the Columbian Hostel.

The Colombian Hostel was an absolute treat. Kept very clean. Could use an extra shower, but that's the biggest issue. Hostel owners were what made this hostel so amazing, Mauricio and Carolina will go out of their way to help with anything. Free salsa dancing lessons, city information, tourist attractions and so on. Would absolute go back, and definitely recommend it to anyone, young or old!

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 :-)

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

for us it was a great pleasure to have you as a guest thanks for everything .. Mauricio

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
