    Outstanding place. The tours they set you up with are excellent, no need to do much research on activities outside of what they provide. Daniela and Vanessa were extremely helpful staff members. They went above and beyond for any request we made. Thanks for making our stay in San Gil so enjoyable!

    The location of the hostel is amazing! Very close to the main square and to the couple of good restaurants around. The staff is incredibly friendly and help you book all the stuff you want to do. The pool and sauna are a nice addition! I stayed in a solo-room and it had a nice terrace view on the lively square.

    Very Good

    I struggled with San Gil and the exhaust fumes after a week in Salento. I didn’t feel awfully welcome at the hostel and the top bunk beds don’t have barriers so you feel like you’re going to fall out of bed. I bought a lock from reception for the locker that didn’t fit. I had booked two nights and stayed for one.
