This hostel has a nice pool and hammock area to chill out in. But the one thing that was really absolutely horrible was the 8 bed dorm. It was so so hot at night and it felt like there was no oxygen in there. Also there was no space at all and it was super cramped, definitely a space too small to put 8 people. They should change that small room to a 4 person dorm, or at least install air conditioning for the sake of their guests. I've stayed in way better rooms for half the price.

8 room bunk much too crowded for price paid (30.000 per night)

The free salsa lessons are a must! This is a great hostel to relax by the pool all day & salsa in the night. I would definitely stay again.

Place is great with really responsive and attentive staff. Really nice chill area with a pool, bar and hangout area where people hangout. I got a private room to get more sleep, and it was great. Each person has their own security box in their room. The bathroom was quite small (2 stalls, 1 sink), and the showers are awkwardly facing the pool area. Salsa classes are easy to sign-up for and there are 2 studio rooms in the hostel.

I absolutely loved my time in El Viajero. I was only planning on staying 1 week and ended up staying 3! The atmosphere is chilled during the day though salsa rhythms accompany you wherever you are with all the salsa (private and group) lessons going on. The facilities (kitchen, pool, bar, TV room) are great. The beds are comfy and there are lockers in every (clean) room, + safety boxes. Free yoga lessons! Needless to say I spent more time in the hostel than out and about. True caleña experience!

Fun hostel, would definitely recommend it. Free salsa lessons every day, great salsa instructors, pool to hang out with by the day. Every night people hang out by the bar together and head out to go salsa dancing together.

Excellent Hostel. The Pool, The bar is GREAT, the FREE Salsa lessons. Circus acts 2 times a week. What more can you ask for??.......Cool vibe of the hostels staff. Very clean. Definitly will be coming back. I've been to El Viajero Cartagena and San Andres and they are all highly reccomended.

El Viajero has a really nice community of people who flock to Cali just to dance salsa by night, and lay by the pool by day. It's a very fun, friendly and laid-back place with nice people, both travelers and staff.

Best hostel i stayed in Colombia! Great atmosphere and nice staff. There's a refreshing pool. A must for dance lovers since you can have private and/or group salsa lessons in the hostel itsself. I can highly recommend this hostel!!

Mixed age groups with a mixed vibe of chilled/party atmosphere. Beds in dorms all have plastic sheets on matfress but nobody bothered to wipe or clean these down and they were pretty filthy when we arrived. Pool is great as is the bar. Breakfast was filling if you like sugary bread, cereal and yoghurt. Can't complain for free.
