It's a great place to stay. Really good breakfast. Great, friendly, helpfull staff. I felt very welcomed and went out to great salsa clubs with Mauricio and the rest of the guests at night. I might have done better with a few more lessons on the roof though ;)

The best hostel I stayed at in a year of travelling without a doubt. In a buzzing residential neighbourhood close to the city centre. The staff are on a different level and will make sure that your stay is one you will never forget. The salsa lessons are particularly recommended and the trooper that is Mauricio will then lead you... More

We arrived way earlier than our check in time but the owner was nice enough to give us the rom at that time. the owner was very friendly and super helpful, he just wanted everyone to have a good time. Breakfast was always good and different everyday. If I go back to Cali, I'd totally stay there again.
