Interesting that this hostel has so many top reviews as it didn't live up to expectation. Wasn't really a party hostel at all, location was OK but the amount of rules were unbelievable. We stayed in a 10 bed dorm and the heat was crazy of an evening. The one wall mounted fan didn't help much.


A good hostel with a very friendly and helpfull staff. We loved the pool and the bar. The location is about 10 min with cab to Zona Rosa (Sexto) and 15 min by cab to TinTin Deo ( if you're into salsa). Originally we stayed in room 4 ( a 8 bed mixed dorm) which is probably the most cramped room in the hostel, and I would not recommend it, but since one of the roommate had the flu the staff relocated us to another 8 bed dorm which was much roomier.


Please add more electricity connections (wall outlets) in the rooms, I only saw 2 for 6 people


The bedrooms were clean but not particularly comfortable. The staff weren't friendly. The bathrooms were filthy.


I'd definitely recommend this hostel to anyone who wants to meet new people and have a good time. The outdoor bar and pool area is what sold me on it and it didn't disappoint.


Nice hostel, breakfast is alright, nice and social, salsa lessons and yoga are cool.. Great place to chill through the day with the pool as there's not actually very much going on in Cali at all.. I recommend the street art tour.


The pool made this place great. Wifi is decent. Didn't have one warm shower. Good tours offered. Decent breakfast


The staff are seriously decent here for a hostel. Nice friendly social vibe at the hostel, not overly cliquey like some huge hostels.


Everything was amazing!!! Best place ever!!! Loved it!!!!


In a great location. The only issue we had was they had over booked us and we actually didn't get to sleep their. But they accommodated us by giving us access to the facilities (pool, bar and common areas) and breakfast as well as a refund of our money. They also booked us for muchila which is 2 or 3 blocks up the road. Would have liked to stay there but that was a Internet flaw. Cool environment great for meeting all sorts of people to go out and adventure with.


Amazing hostel in Cali, with great atmosphere and very helpful staff.


Good place to meet people. Central location.


For a person that came first time to Colombia it's the best place to be.feels like family , the atmosphere is amazing ,the service ,the teacher for the salsa are very professional !

Great location, great vibe. Ander sun is really helpful. I don't have anything -ve to say. Only feedback -more cooling / lighting in the rooms.


This hostel has a pool and bar which was really nice to be around during the day. They have fun activities like free salsa and yoga lessons! They even have shows and entertainment on some days of the week. The atmosphere was decent, not really a party hostal. Nice clean place


Nice premises, general cleanliness and atmosphere; rooms where poorly cleaned though. Most people at the front desk new quite well the city, some others only advice on taking a cab to everywhere. Will come back!


Nice hostel to meet people. Staff is really unfriendly though.


Great hostel... Great place to meet other travelers and socialize near the pool and bar. But definitely not a "party" hostel. The staff are very helpful and do a great job to promote a fun time. We really like that you offer free salsa lessons and yoga classes. Nice stop in Cali.


Stayed 2 nights. Pool, hammocks galore, yoga sessions, salsa lessons every night! Loved it. I felt a little bit wary of my surroundings at night, but maybe because it was unfamiliar to me and from stereotypes of what I've heard from other travelers. Loved the fun music at night too; dancing by the pool with a few beers; can't go wrong! Unless people start pushing each other into the pool that is... then it just gets better from there! :D


awsome hostel. Fully recommended. Amazing staff. Cant wait to go back.
