    The hostel has an amazing atmosphere. The staff are the friendliest most helpful staff!!! Always ready and willing to assist and go beyond what is expected. The hostel was always clean and situated in a safe and perfect location. David, one of the staff members, truly went beyond expectations whenever we needed something. The salsa classes were amazing, fun and truly worth the sweat. The instructors are so talented and passionate. I would recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Cali.

    El Viejero hostel was one of the best hostels I've had the privilege of staying in. People I met there were incredible and the staff was always doing a fantastic job. But, the best part of my stay was the salsa classes that they offer. My salsa teacher, Jeniffer, was incredible. She was able to teach a gringo like myself how to dance really well in a short time. She also does an amazing performance every Friday that is a must see. If you stay here I would recommend getting Jennifer as a teacher.

    The social areas of this hostel were perfectly suited to create a fun atmosphere where every hostel guest feels welcomed. I stayed here a week and got to enjoy the free tours, free yoga, and free salsa classes offered at the hostel which were great. I also booked private salsa classes which taught me so much. My teacher was Alex and I highly recommend him. He really made me feel comfortable with myself and he enjoys teaching. He’s a great dancer and always taught me with a smile :)
