Property Description

Follow the sound of music straight into our salsa classrooms! Put on a bathing suit and get ready to enjoy the sun by the pool...welcome to Viajero Cali!

Enjoy our FREE DAILY ACTIVITIES, these include salsa lessons, circus shows, and salsa shows. We are a hostel and a salsa school, and we are constantly looking for ways to give back to the community. Because of this, in Cali, we work with the foundation ‘My body, my story’. Through booking private lessons, you are not only learning how to dance but also contributing to help vulnerable children through the arts, located in a colonial house in the historic neighborhood of San Antonio.

During the day, explore the streets of San Antonio and go for a local food tasting at the fruit market. If you prefer, spend all day tanning and enjoy a cocktail by the pool. At night, the salsa drums begin, learn some moves at the hostel and go show them off at the clubs in Cali! After all, Cali is known as ‘The salsa capital of the world’.

Welcome to our traveller community! Don't forget to check out our other hostels in Colombia: Cartagena, Salento, San Andrés Island, and Tayrona, and in Uruguay: Colonia, Montevideo and Pedrera.

    I stayed at viajero for a week and had an amazing time! They have an amazing area in the back with a pool where you can chill out after hours of salsa lesson. I had private salsa lessons with Karol and I would highly recommend her. She’s extremely patient and pays great attention to detail. I also had some private groups with Jeniffer and Alex who were both incredible salsa teachers. Lina and Sebastian led the party bus on Friday which was a blast. The receptionist Katherine is a sweetheart!

    I was so surprised at how much I enjoyed myself at El Viajero considering it's a chain hostel, and I don't usually love those. Unusually for a busy hostel, it was extremely clean and well-maintained by staff who work hard to make sure everyone is enjoying themselves. The pool is great in the Cali heat, the atmosphere was super fun and sociable (with lots of good nights out!) and the salsa lessons, both free and private, are great - my teacher Johnny was an absolute babe!

    Loved this hostel! The salsa classes are amazing, the atmosphere is very social without being too party party, and the street food tour was amazing. The kitchen wasn't great for cooking as there were a lot of people trying to cook and not a lot of space but turned out just fine. Would highly recommend!

    Great place to stay if you plan on heading out to salsa while in Cali. Most people staying either have some previous dance experience or are enjoying learning while in the city of salsa so most people were heading out most evenings to dance. Facility’s were good. However no hot water in the showers, didn’t seem to matter which shower or what time. It was quite hot weather but not as hot and muggy as say Cartagena weather so I would’ve preferred a hot shower. Kitchen space a little small.

    Great venue to meet other travellers. Very “backpacking” vibe to the place. Super helpful staff (especially Ilina - thanks for helping with travel arrangements). Would recommend in Cali

    Good party hostel with a pool and social atmosphere during the day and night. Lockers in the rooms including small security lockers with the combination for your valuables. The staff was not great though and didn't have great recommendations even suggested I take an Uber 10 minutes to get a haircut when there was a barber shop less than a block around the corner.

    Most of the staff were incredible, some of the guys at reception were not so helpful and made me feel like a nuisance just for wanting to ask a few questions about the hostel. Don't make me feel like I'm bothering you for wanting to know a few basic things. It's literally your job - act like it!!

    This hostel sounds great on paper, looks the part but was a big disappointment. Firstly, the rooms were not secure & neither are the luggage lockers. I was in room 4 and the lockers under the bed don't have a partition in between, so if your bunk mate doesn't lock his side then your side is insecure. Rooms are accessible to all and doors do not shut properly. Staff are not very approachable. Local area is nice, showers and WiFi good. But stay elsewhere, I felt on edge and unsafe in this hostel
