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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
A really lovely hostel in a safe area with lots of restaurants. The staff were really nice and the Wifi was good. We really enjoyed our stay.
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.
This hostel was spot on, in a great area near restaurants , bares and a small park, very safe area and much better than ¨la sexta ¨ While I made my initial booking for 3 nights, I ended up staying here for over a month. The hospitality here was excellent and the staff and the owner could not have been more helpful and friendly. I feel this is a great hostel if you want a more authentic colombian experience . i.e to meet some colombians and be close to the salsa bares to party. Will return.
Good hostel. Clean and friendly staff. good facilities. nothing amaizing but decent value. Cali itself is nothing to write home about and not the safest of cities, but keep your wits about you and you will be fine. this is not a bad stoping point.
We had a very nice 3-night-stay in this hostel in a double privat room. Ask for the privat roon with two single beds and you'll get a big and very nice room. The privat rooms have a separat area to hang out and watch tv or cook something. The staff is really friendly and helpfull, and you can get a privat city tour as well, just ask. The only negativ point is that the hostel is directly at the street...
A great hostel to experience Columbia and some of the best staff I have encountered in 4 months in South America. Were very helpful and created a great atmosphere in the hostel and were great for improving your Spanish. Rooms were comfortable and the hostel is kept very clean. It is walking distance to many shops, bars and restaurants and is safe to walk around. If you are coming to Columbia you should stay here!
