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..

Had an awesome stay here, mainly cos I met some great people. The set up of the hostel is perfect for meeting people, with a pool and terrace, big kitchen for cooking together and free salsa lessons in the evening. Good breakfast: cereal, fresh fruit and bread or crackers with jam. Bit far away from the center but still in a nice area. Couple of suggestions, better curtains in the dorms and no need to play music from 8 am onwards!

A great hostel with a great atmosphere ! Easy to meet new people here and always opportunities to discover the life of Cali from here. I had a great time here, only problem would be that they didn't clean our bathroom during my stay and that it could seem a but disorganized at times. That said, I would recommend anyone going to Cali to stay here!

La Pinta Boogaloo has great facilities, a nice staff, and luxury you won't find anywhere else. A pool, sauna, salsa lessons, and a garden to hang out in while drinking cheap beers and meeting other travelers. Also, a short ten minute walk to San Antonia where you will find all the restaurants you want with delicious food. I highly recommend staying here, especially if you want time and space to relax while enjoying the fun times in Cali.

Probably the nicest hostel I have stayed at so far. The hostel is in excellent condition and is a really relaxed environment. the staff are also very friendly and are more than happy to help you from ordering you taxis and pizzas to helping you plan your next destination. Carlos and Oscar are really cool guys that come across as if youve known them for a long time the moment you walk in.
