After staying in another rubbish hostel for 1 night we promptly moved here after lots of recommendations! We really loved the Colombian Hostel - it's in a safe, convenient location, the building it's in is lovely and the staff couldn't be friendlier. The communal kitchen is really nice and big, there is a small pool on the roof terrace and... More

Colombian Hostel is simply amazing. Mauricio and Carolina are there 24/7. They have so much pride for their hostel and really care about every little detail. The place is spotless, it is a smaller hostel which gives it an intimate, family-like feeling, and they will go out of their way to help you. Mauricio with do a salsa lesson every... More

I stayed here for two weeks back in August, which pretty much indicates my feelings about this place - it's one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Firstly, the facilities. The rooms are nice and comfortable, and not too big (4-6 bed dorms). There is hot water all the time and there is a great kitchen available for... More

This hostel had unparalleled hospitality, atmosphere, fun, and cleanliness. It's what Cali is all about! It is a social small hostel in a nice safe area so it really does feel like home. I stayed only for a few night but seriously could have moved in. Mauricio was great taking us out places by dat and by night. Would highly... More

I generally prefer hostels where the owner is very involved, showing that they have a greater interest in customer satisfaction and where there is a sense of camaraderie amongst the guests. Colombian Hostel did not disappoint in any way. Mauricio and Carolina were wonderfully inviting and helpful from the get-go. Mauricio sat us down with a map, showing us all... More

Such a nice hostel, it felt like home straight away! It's run by the wonderful Mauricio, who makes sure that everything is clean, tidy and FUN! He makes sure that everybody is having a good time, from breakfast served with a smile, taking us out to party, teaching us to dance salsa and giving us great tips to discover Cali.... More

A wonderful hostel not only because it's clean, fun and friendly but for the extra mile Mauricio and Carolina go for every single guest. Be it a smiley face made from your fresh fruit included breakfast to the free salsa lessons and ensuring everyone arrives safety to a fabulous local salsa club to test those new found skills. Nothing was... More

I really enjoyed my stay in the Colombian Hostel. The owners are super nice, always available to make sure you have the best experience of Cali. Place is clean and breakfast good (changes everyday). Last but not least, Mauricio offers salsa training every night!!

THE BEST hostel I stayed in in Colombia. Epitomises the sense of community and friendliness that a solo traveller seeks. The staff are the best I've ever come across and their dedication to their guests having a good time and learning about the culture (salsa!) is as inspiring as it is infectious! I tell everyone I know to visit this... More
