Property Description

Padma House is a dream that came true since 2017. The lovely home was created by two world travellers and avid lovers of good coffee. Our life-philosophy is firmly grounded in the belief that everyone deserves to be happy and seek to share it, that’s why we help shape memorable experiences around travel and coffee. Our project is located in a beautiful structure that mixes colonial architecture with a rustic style. In-door gardens and open spaces accentuate the space. The large patio with hammocks and fruit trees are ideal for unwinding after a long day of exploration, sharing stories, enjoying some of the beverages from the house, practicing yoga, reading or any other outdoor hobby. Our café as a common area, is the ultimate space for those digital nomads and freelance professionals who are looking for a place with excellent wifi, good music and above all, the best Colombian coffee!

Padma House Hostel & Café is attractively situated in the colonial heart of the city, the neighborhood of San Antonio, at the west area of Cali. Our location, is very close to down town and the main tourist attractions. At this area, you’ll also find lots of amazing food places and bars nearby. Popular points of interest close to Padma House Hostel & Cafe includes, San Antonio Chruch, Peñon Park, Cali's city Theatre, Artisan Park Loma de la Cruz, Modern Art Museum La Tertulia, Ermita Church and Cristo Rey. We can conveniently provide information at the reception to help you to get around the area.

    Best place to stay in Cali! The place is still quite new, the owners Caro and Jorge (and their 2 cute dogs) are very passionate about what they do and are always looking to improve. They will help you with anything you need. The hostel is very small which makes everything feel very personal, like a little family. There's a kitchen to cook your own food, a nice terrace in the back and a cafe in the front. It has the perfect location in the middle of San Antonio!

    I came for a week and ended up staying 2 MONTHS at Padma House. First it started off as a really comfortable and welcoming Hostel with a great Cafe (and chocolate Chip Cookies!!!) but it quickly became something way bigger and deeper. HOME! Caro and Jorge the Hostel Owners really live what they preach! To share Happiness. They achieve to create a place full of warmth, creativity, exchange, art and of course - great coffee! For me it became a second family and home! pure LOVE!

    Simply AMAZING. We travel a lot and stayed in a lot of hostels and have been so pleasantly surprised by Padma House. Carolina and her husband are so warm and welcoming. We unfortunately had an incident outside of the hostel and they WERE so helpful with everything. Thank you for everything. Would definitely stay there again

    I really enjoyed my stay at Padma House. Juan and his girlfriend are such wonderful people and they treated us very well. A shame only to have stayed one night. Highly recommended

    Very nice and cute home-feeling hostel! The hosts Carolina & Jorge are super nice and friendly. I stayed there for 2 weeks. They have a nice courtyard and cute cafe. Great-location, it’s right below the park on top of San Antonio and I can easily walk to anywhere in San Antonio, Loma de la Cruz, and main Boulevard. I felt quite safe to walk alone around the hostel too. The guest kitchen is a bit small but you got everything you need. I will totally stay there again if I go back to Cali!

    Security was fine. The owner was willing to get up at 4:30 am and call Uber so I could catch my 5:30 am bus. I felt guilt, but I appreciated the kindness since there were no taxi available at that hour.

    Very Good

    We stayed 2 nights in Padma house and then moved on to another hostel in cali. There were many things advertised that actually were a bit false. “Hot tub” in the garden was actually a cold tub - seemed a bit pointless. We were in a private room with private bathroom which was actually quite pointless as the shower was freezing and there was no door to the toilet so we used a different one anyway. Not any atmosphere at all. This is a cafe with accommodation and not a hostel.
