We only stayed one night for a quick stopover - really nice guy from Australia checked us in but one other member of staff was a bit strange! Fine hostal for a quick stop-over! Restaurants nearby.


Only had a quick overnight stop before heading north. It seemed like a good hostel and served our needs well.

Hola Fue un gusto tenerte, estamos muy felices de haber cumplido tus espectativas de estadia aqui en la capital de la salsa, y en Sunflower Hostel. Esperamos regreses pronto amigo. Lili, Gloria y Jairo


Really great staff. Place was in a great location. Very clean and breakfast was good. Great coffee. Very good restaurants and supermarkets nearby. Had a few lovely days.


The owners of the Sunflower were really great, and are the best part about this hostel. Its also close to the Parque de Perro, has free breakfast, a good spot to stay in Cali.


One of the best hostels in South America. Safe, clean, excellent position and the best is Jairo the owner. This is not a "party" place but perfect for knowing Cali. Perfect, perfect, perfect


Nice chilled hostel. Owner was really nice and put on a bar-b-que on the Sunday. Social area downstairs and upstairs were both good and better than average Kitchens. Would stay again.


Nice place to stay in cali. Friendly, helpful staff, decent breakfast, working wifi.


Very nice hostel, felt like home. V clean. They have a BBQ for the guests every friday, always playing salsa music & offering free dance lessons. Lots to do within walking distance, including some of the best salsa bars (fantasic combo of language exchange and salsa every monday, and was free) As always, the most important thing is the staff, and they were excellent. Always smiling, and the owners really make you feel like you are visiting family, not staying at a hostel. Full marks Sunflower!


We really enjoyed our stay in this family-owned hostal and went there twice. The staff is exceptional friendly and we got twice a big doble room for a good price-value. There are two kitchens, several bathrooms, a TV room, a garden and a good wifi. We also felt very safe during our stay and they have a 24h reception.

Thank you, thank you very much for your feedback, glad nothing much as our hearts when we help with all the gusto and received words that have written. Thanks for your rating. Sunflower Hostel is your home in Cali. Jairo and Gloria


The Family was really nice and helpful. Rooms and Bathroom was clean and the location was near to all the hotspots. We spent new years here and even when you are far away from home the family gives you a good feeling. Nice people in the hostel. Best place to stay in Cali!!!


I stayed here over the Feria in Cali (end of december) in a 4 (or 5?) bed-dorm and I really enjoyed it. The hostel has two parts and especially the part with the 5 bed-dorm and two private rooms is more like an appartment with a big kitchen and living area. But also the "main" part of the hostel is great and it's easy to get in contact with other ones or find a place just for yourself. PRO: location, salsa-class (!!!), wifi, matresses, staff, social-area - CON: just a small outside area

This was my second stay at the Sunflower pacific. This is a class establishment that has a friendly and professional staff that is extremely helpful. They go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and at home. I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone that is looking.

Hi, you're very kind, your valuation is very important, and your words help us to continue doing our job and same taste and love always. Thank you.


This is a great hostel run by a wonderful Cali family--located in a safe neighborhood near transport, cheerful decor, impeccably clean, excellent kitchen; friendly, helpful staff. They do their best to make you welcome at the hostel, and in their city, and to provide helpful information about events and travel. They are fun people, and while I was there they hosted meals and salsa lessons, and several times they came out to party with us hostelers. Highly recommended.


Great experience at Sunflower. Easy walk or bus into the centre, close to restaurant and bar options. Clean rooms, good wifi. Staff were excellent, helping me find another place to stay when I got sick and needed somewhere to rest up for a few days. Would definitely recommend.

You are very kind to your rating. Thanks for your comments and thank you very much for your rating.


The staff is very friendly and they are sincerely worried to make the stay the best as possible. They provided all the information I needed, including some good and unexpected recommendations - about restaurants, places, market, etc... They create in the hostel an atmosphere, easy to make many friends.

Hi Thank you for your valuation, thanks for your comments. We pleased you've been with us, and hope to go to Brazil to take class with you. Glad you enjoyed the dancesport world championship here in Cali. Jairo y Gloria


The facilities, location, and cleanliness were good.....but there was just no atmosphere. I saw about 3 other people while I was there....was a ghost town. Also, if your spanish isnt great you might struggle as they dont speak english.

Hi Thanks for your comment, and thanks for your rate. We always want to improve, so it is sure to work hard on the issue of speaking English. It would have been great that your stay would have been several days, so you would have a rating more representative of the hostel and the city. Hope you're enjoying your trip and visit us again to stay more than a day, and share with you the great and important things in the city. Jairo C (Administrator)

A great hostel in a secure neighberhood (not to be underestimated in Cali). Friendly and helpfull staff with a lot of information about the city. Not too loud. Ask for the rooms at the first floor. Recommended.
