We stayed in a private room which had only a window looking out onto the hallway. As a result it was not practical to leave the window open, so the room was very hot and stuffy. This made our stay slightly uncomfortable, but it was tolerable for the price. Silvano was very nice and made our time in San Gil memorable by helping with recommendations and explaining how to get around. The hostel is in a good location, walkable but quiet.

Hello, I'm sorry than you didn't like our hostel, the Windows can be open with no problem, our hostel is very safe and everybody sleep with the window open, San Gil has very nice temperature during the night, not hot or stuffy (18 degrees to 22, perfect !!) and there is a fan in every room. For other customers: Look the pictures, if you like what you see you will like this place. Thank you for your review

Great hostel. About five minutes walk from the centre, which makes it nice and quiet. Staff very helpful with booking activities and transport. Very relaxed and accommodating atmosphere.

Cool and cosy hostel, well located in San Gil. Dorm is good and the common room is spacious with also a big garden with hamacs. Sylvain the owner is very friendly and helpful. He booked for me my bus ticket for the next trip. Definitely a great adress if you stay some nights in San Gil.
