In La Pinta in Calí they offer cool events and good food. It's clean and the staff is really nice. It's as good as La Pinta en Bogotá and I'll definitely come back to both hostels, hopefully with more time to spend.


Highly recommend. Everything is perfect. Room, garden, pool, kitchen, free breakfast, free cafe and the all day. Wifi is a little bit slow but anyway it's ok.


Warm warm people

Great atmosphere, friendly staff and nice rooms for a good price. There's a pool (great for cooling off; the weather in Cali is very hot), a pool table, laundry service and you can order cooked food. Some guests barely left the place, and I can understand why, because you can just hang out all day and relax. The only bad things I can think about are the slow internet, and waking up early in the morning because of noise (either a barking dog or people working on the house/garden)


Super fun hostel (bar, restaurant, swimming pool, pool table, movie theatre!), clean and confortable rooms and great location. I will definitely stay there again. *The BEST burgers in Cali!!* And don't forget to try their local menu too, I totally recommend it!

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.
