terrible staff who seemed to really not care and tried charging me for a private salsa class despite not having one. Also there are NOT free group salsa classes everyday, they are not on the weekend only during the week... the weekend price is so overpriced i will never consider staying at an el viajero hostel again.

I stayed here for multiple nights with my girlfriend during the festival Petrionio in august. Privates are small, really hot and over priced. The activities the hostel offers (free salsa lessons, free yoga) makes it worth a stay but you'd be better off in a dorm (better value for money). Pool is nice and cool and a good place to hangout during the hot day (after a night of salsa). Most of the staff don't speak a word english which sometimes makes it difficult to communicate.

Super hostel. Free dance salsa classes, swimming pool, and the cleanest hostel I've been in. Great bar (Leslie is awesome) and great staff (cheers Ronald). Would definitely recommend!

El Viajero is in a perfect location, in a safe neighbourhood with tons of great restaurants and places to walk to. It also has free salsa and yoga classes, great private salsa lessons and really helpful staff. It has an awesome atmosphere and everyone is really social, so it's a great place to stay if you want to meet some new friends.

Really enjoyed the free yoga and salsa lessons. The mixed dorm was a bit stinky so opted for a female dorm which was excellent . Decent breakfast and yummy cocktails at the bar.

Ideally located in the beautiful barrio San Atonio, close to many salsa bars and restaurants. VERY friendly staff, always smiling and happy to help. Clean dorms, human dimensions, quiet at nights (not a party hostal), great pool to tan, chill out and socialize close to the bar while listening a cool play list, tasty cocktails, happy hour every day, salsa lessons with the best professional teachers in town with whom you can book private courses (free classes every day from Mo to Sat). Worth it!

Great place all round. Good local staff. Only complaint is the door buzzer ringing all night. The hostel should hire a security guard to stand there and check wrist bands . Can ruin your sleep as I found

Loved this hostel!! Great to hang around the pool, kitchen or hammock area, friendly staff, easy to meet other people and the free salsa (basic steps) and yoga classes are great! I would def recommend as well the private salsaclasses though, great fun! On wednesdayevenings there are african danceclasses nearby as well. For people who like/love to dance salsa, Cali is a must!! And el Viajero is the right place to stay then! Will def come back soon!!

Rude, unhelpful staff, apart from a few. Great facilities but was overshadowed by the bad atmosphere
