This place was okay, but really the only friendly and helpful staff member was Ale. The hostel is not in a great neighborhood as proven by the fact that I was robbed just outside the entrance. Not their fault, but you should probably know that. It was also a little old, but at least they had a pool. Next time I will probably stay somewhere else.
Whilst the rating is 74% that's purely because the place has a pool, snooker room and great staff especially Anna. The Internet is terrible, hot water is impossible to come by, the breakfast is very simple and for this price range I'd expect more. The other La Pinta in Bogotà is a massive contrast much better run, cleaner and better atmosphere.
Staff are very friendly and welcoming. The free breakfast was quite good. Great that there's a swimming pool available for us - but it wasn't clean at any point during my stay. Little tourist information available.
It has the feel of a private villa, it's a great place to relax with friendly staff and great facilities. Great value for your stay.
Bad experience. Hot showers only for private rooms, internet was very slow (when working) - impossible to use! It is far... just far, so you need a taxi for everything. Toilets where clean and cleaning ladies where very nice... overall I would not stay there again, there are better options in Cali.
This hostel has great advertising but doesn't actually follow through with it: Cold showers, they claim hot showers all day Staff who can't be bothered to help Wifi in one room Restaurant that is suppose serve food, but only when a staff member can be bothered No map of the city, poor information about Cali Unorganised, didn't know how many nights we stayed, and had to ask each individual whether they were staying more nights even when we booked on hostel world. Has great potential!
Well, I didn't stay here for a long time, but my impression was that it's worth staying because of the low cost, that is if you can deal with the long distance to the closest anything like a minimarket etc.. The hostel itself is nice, pool, seemingly cool staff, good kitchen and good breakfast..
