firstly the host was a building site which created alot of dust near and in our room. not to mention the noise! we were told we couldn't check out a night early even though the hostel was not full. the staff were unpleasant and unhelpful.


the wifi is sketchy, but overall great hostel, great facilities, points for individual bunk power points & one of the best lounging areas on the patio.


We had an awesome time at Kolibri! The staff are really nice and helpful; they helped us organize our trips and were responsive to all of our inquiries. The patio area is a really nice place to hang out with a great hammock but unfortunately closes early. There was no breakfast either but the resto next door had good food. The private room was cute: clean and spacious! Would go back for sure!


The hostel was awesome! It was in a great location and bikes were available for rent to tour the town. The staff was extremely helpful in giving advice on activities. There is also a delicious restaurant that is connected where one must eat if in town!


Overall we had quite a negative experience. We booked a double bed private bathroom. Upon arriving, we paid in full for the room we had booked, before being taken to a twin shared bathroom. We were told there were no other rooms left. Worse, though, they refused to refund the difference in price between rooms because 'it was already in the system'. Nothing of interest in walking distance, and the common rooms often smelt of cigarette smoke. Look elsewhere, or skip Pereira entirely.

We just read your review, thank you very much for taking the time to do it. We are very sorry for this unfortunate experience with us. We check the entire process and you are right, we will correct this error immediately and we will work in the other suggestions us well. If you are still in Colombia, please let us know, we will return you the money you overpaid. If not, you or any of your friends will have a free night we assure you will find a much better atmosphere.


A really nice, clean, modern hostel with great facilities - the kitchen and bathrooms were great. There are many spacious common areas and the general atmosphere was good.


Everything perfect. Just missed the kitchen at night!


Great Hostel! very friendly staff!


It is a 20 min walk from the city center, there are enough places to eat around. You can get breakfast for 5000 at the hostel. What I didn't like is the fact that there is no hot water all the times. I guess it is because the water is heated with solar energy ... No son no hot water. Anything else was great!
