The staff is awesome, very helpful! It's the perfect location if you're interested in Salsa! There are studios that offer lessons close by plus some of the best Salsa clubs are within walking distance! There are also great bars and restaurants just a block away.

Sunflower hostel in cali. OK. Well, the location is very good. You can reach it with the new bus system easily ..or with the jeeps. The room was simply too dark with a very loud fan. no Window but other rooms have a Window. There are only two showers/toilets so it's not much. The kitchen is good and has everything you need. The staff is excellent and very helpful to find the locations and activities in the city. The area is very quite at night and all shops are close to the hostel.

The staff is amazing and helps a lot with any questions. It does not get any better. Rooms are clean and the location of the hostal is very near to the city center. Yet, the hostal is located directly on the main road and to be fair, there is traffic noise all day and all night long.

The experience of staying in Synflower was one of the best of my trip. Close to many salsa dance schools, supermarkets, bars and restaurants. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere very cousy. I highly recommend staying in Sunflower hostel!

The place it's great . It's close to salsa school Sondeluz, which I've attended and close to all salsa bars :) Structure of the hostel is an actual house, which makes you feel like at home , not only, because of the design but also because of the atmosphere :) I loved it totally :)

I really enjoyed my stay in Sunflower hostel, it felt very much like a home away from home! I stayed there for 3 weeks while attending an intensive salsa course at a nearby salsa school. The location was perfect for me, close to everything I needed: shops, restaurants, many different salsa schools, the sports stadium, Alameda market etc. I would definitely stay here again when I come back to Cali. The people working there were also great, thanks for all the good times!!

We always appreciate every comment and rating. Could you please help us understand why Sunflower is so bad? Se= 4: Your room has lockers, a 24-hour reception and alarm. I did not find any report that you've missed something. I do not understand why you think security is bad?.L = 1: 100 meters from the hotel is the pink zone "Parque de P." with bars and restaurants. At 200 meters is the bus transport station, 200 meters there are two supermarkets, salsa schools, clubs and discotheques, Salsa Ch

Not the greatest of hostels. The guy who checked us in was weird. Then the other guy working there told us to walk into town a certain way, which felt really unsafe (for the first time in 6 months of travel here) and then was later told that is a 'No Go' area in Cali for tourists. Bit sketchy! Didn't have any atmosphere, but also barely saw any other guests so that might be why. Would probably not stay here again.

This was a good deal. I would recommend. It's a good price for what it is. Has wifi and brekfast included (although pretty basic). Close to la loma and walking distance from tourist places. Staff super helpful and friendly. The day we checked out my partner and I had a bus late at night. The hostel let us store our stuff there all day with no charge and even let us use a room to change and use bathrooms etc.

Not a bad hostel, but not great. Staff is friendly but the place could be a little cleaner. The bathroom had mold on the ceiling and the kitchen was always a little dirty. Dusty fans made my allergies act up a bit. Other than that it was a fine place for the price

I was here during Feria so the hostel was full which may have contributed to my rating for cleanliness - this was only in the bathrooms at times. I was told my room would be ready by 12, but had to push to get the staff to wake up the sleeping person in my room at almost 2pm. Other than this, everything else was great. I loved the location because it was away from the other hostels & a really nice, safe area. Great courtyard to hang out, kitchen & great staff. I would go back

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.

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
