We stayed for 2 nights & thought it was a good value option. We stayed in a private room. The shared bathroom next door was always really clean, as was the whole hostel. All the staff we came across were friendly & helpful. We were able to easily organise with reception a 4am cab for an early morning flight. Only... More

The staff here are very friendly and helpful. I required assistance in English, which they are very comfortable with. They gave me the do's and don'ts around the place (including safe limits). The place is clean and facilities are comfortable. There's good music through most of the day. Breakfast is alright. Convenient location to reach most of the attractions and... More

Everyone is really cool and kind, located a block from Botero Museum and really close to good bars. The breakfast is bread with jam and cereal with milk. There is free coffee and you can use the kitchen.

Nice and quiet hostel. Well located: next to touristic places and it is more o less near the bars and discos. Everything works perfect. The persons that work in the Martinika help you in anything you need.

After a stressful journey from London, a very welcoming landfall. The staff and management were pleasant and helpful and made me feel at home straight away. I was to find that breakfast in Colombian hostels is a rarity and although the quality here was not perfect, the quantity was more than enough to keep the wolf from the door. They... More

I was at the Hostal a grand total of 4 nights, and have hardly any complaints. The only real issue with the dorms, is that they are at the street side, which results in them being rather noisy. Everything else was up to par. Lockers, warm water, breakfast, space. Not really a 'party hostel', but a great location and with... More
