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

The place has a great atmosphere, all the activities to be done in San Gil can be booked from the front desk, which helps a lot for planing the holidays to fit the needs as a tourist anybody may have! Great attention, very affordable prices, delicious breakfasts and a very friendly crew make this hotel the perfect place to stay... More

There are two Santander Aleman hostels in San Gil... The white one is a bit more expensive, my boyfriend and I stayed at the other hostel, which was great. The rooms are really cozy, colorful, have comfortable beds and the staff is great. There is a kitchen to cook and I think it is a better deal than macondo for... More

I m talking about the hostel (uphill from the park), not the hotel (left of the park) owned by two brothers. I guess the other one is good too, but is stayed in the hostel. Clean, cheap, good value! Relaxing place. The owning couple is super nice. Took me two days and i felt like home. The place has everything... More

The hotel has a central and excelent location, that could explain that some of the room could get noisy. The hotel is very clean, and all rooms have ventilators. The roof terrace is very nice, and you can take your breakfast there. The staff and the owner Ivan can arrange all activities you want and explain you everything you want... More

cosy hostel/hotel in San Gil, central location, great staff. Stunning roof terrace. Can arrange all activities you want and explain you everything you want to know. Absolutely recommendable to book your stay at this place for tourists. no AC but ventilator is OK in San Gil. Price is great for what you get. We had an excellent time here.

We loved the location of this hostel, the super friendly staff (Ivan is the best!), and the cleanliness. It's in the heart of San Gil so it's a little noisy, but in my opinion if we wanted quiet we would have picked a hotel in the countryside nearby. Location: it is just 2 blocks from the Parque (the main square),... More

This hostel is a real beauty. The design is well picked, the dorm is big and comfortable and the bathroom to the dorm is clean and has hot water. The biggest asset of the hostel is the terrace, from which you have a great view over San Gil and get to enjoy the evening sun. There is some sport equipment... More

Really lovely helpful staff - my Spanish is poor but they really helped me out. Hotel is good location (just make sure taxi takes you to correct one - they have another hotel with a similar name - minus the terrace). My only suggestion is definitely try to get a room that isn't next to the road. It is next... More
