    Open House Hostel was great! It has a very central location just a block or two from the main square, on the hill, so you avoid the noise. The staff are fantastic! Extremely welcoming, friendly, and really make you feel at home. I stayed for 3 nights, but wish I could have stayed for longer! Muchas gracias Sonya & Cesar!

    We felt like we stayed in our own home. Right in the middle of town and it was wonderful. People who worked there were more awesome.

    I stayed at a quiet time which was perfect for the relaxing experience `I was looking for. The hostel has a nice, open layout and really comfortable beds. The owner and her family are lovely. I have only positive things to say about the hostel.

    Unfortunately got sick during our time in San Gil. Hostel staff were unbelievably understanding and accommodating. Don't let the basic character of the hostel hold you back from enjoying this very homey stay.

    Nice hostel as per its description with helpful staff. The wifi isnt great and the place was really quiet during our stay, but proved to be a perfectly fine base to explore San Gil.

    I was basically the sole guest for the night, zero atmosphere. No security (anyone can enter your room from the street in five seconds). The kitchen could be cleaner. Staff is nice though. Their teen kids hang around in the common areas to do their homework or eat. Good wifi. Small lockers in the common area (most of them are filled with staff's things so they have to free one for you). Won't stay again.
