We stayed here because our choice of hostel, another owned by the same owner as the Santander Aleman had made an error in our booking. This hostel wasn't on our original wish list, and having to stay here confirmed our thoughts. The rooms and common areas are dated. The kitchen and common area (on the roof) is way to hot... More

This hotel is well located in cente of Sin Gil. There are lots of shops and restaurants catering to local people. That also means that you are surrounded by noise. The kitchen facilities are adequate. The rooms are spartan. We had hot water one day and not the next. I never saw the fellow at reception smile. However, the woman... More

Can recommend this place, the owners are still looking after it and take special care with everyone. Nice big breakfast, cool hammocks under the sun... Not the best location, and it feels more like a hotel.

This is a convenient location if you fall off a bus exhausted as the little bus depot is right behind the hotel. However all the busses have to circle the building because of the one way streets. The main stop sign in this very busy crowded town is on one edge of this hotel the other edge is the steep... More

We stayed here 2 nights despite having a less than average experience, but the hotel is so conveniently located next to the local bus station and the center of San Gil that we decided it wasn't worth moving. Hotel can be noisy due to very busy intersection, but we had an interior room and with the fan on were not... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights with a group tour. This hotel was in a good location. 2 blks from main square and half a block from the bus station. Free good wifi in rooms. Breakfast was on the roof terrace and was decent. The hotel is on the busiest corner in San gil so from 530am-6pm it... More

The staff here was simply incredible. They helped with everything, gave me free bottled water when I was sick, and couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating. The street below was a bit noisy (I was suprised at how congested San Gil was in January) and the terrace upstairs could use some better ventilation but you don't really visit San... More

Noisy location (especially during the daytime) but very friendly, accommodating staff. Pleasant terrace area where a fairly decent breakfast is served every day. Management also let us use the kitchen to prepare our own Xmas Eve dinner. Good, fast laundry service too.

Very nice hotel. Good location walking distance to shops and restaurants but corner location means early morning traffic noise at the front. Rooms are bright and very clean and water is hot. Staff are friendly and breakfast is good.

This hostel could really be on to something in quiet sleepy San Gil, but it doesn't do itself many favours. The entrance is via a permanently padlocked front door, which is fine to enter as you just press a doorbell, but is a royal pain in the backside when you want to leave. The front desk isn't always manned during... More
