“If you have to go to Cali - stay here!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

Cali was not recommended to us but we were curious and needed a stopover en route Medellin from the south. It is a bit gritty and there are undercurrents of danger in some places but there is also a nice vibe in some places. When we arrived we were greeted by an friendly, elderly woman who we later learned was the mother-in-law of the owner. She was very helpful and informed us of the best places to go out and advised us on safety issues. There were hardly any other guests when we were there (Easter weekend 2011) so we had full use of a very well equipped kitchen (fridge stocked full of beers too), the use of a great lounge area with DVDs to watch and a roof terrace. There are hammocks for chilling out in too. A great place and very friendly staff. Oh, and down the road, is literally the best Italian restaurant I have ever been to. Forgot the name - ask the owners for recommendations!

I realy felt like home in calidad house hostel in cali. Downstairs is built a like normal apartment with clean kitchen, living room with nice couches and big tv, etc. Upstairs are the rooms but you can enjoy downstairs allday. First i felt a little uncomfortable with the owner,staff and friends of them sitting around at night in the living room or at the table but after 2 days when i knew them i realy felt comfortable and familiar with them. We cooked and drunk together. Really nice experience! Its really near to the a party street, thats why it was my choice.
I can highly recomend it if you are searching for a clean familiar hostel with hot water near to centre/party with nice staff.

After looking at several hostels in Cali - none of them too exciting - we arrived at what I had suspected would be the one for us to stay in. And then it surpassed any expectations I had: in a quiet safe street, less than 5 minutes from the action (Av Sexta), large, bright rooms. The shared kitchen (free coffee any time, even a blender for fruit juices!), gets cleaned several times a day. a place for doing laundry and lines on the big terrace, what else do you need? friendly staff! Most of all Sebastian of course, who seems to actually enjoy meeting us all and is full of very practical advice - ask and he knows. more than that, he even tells us how much to pay the taxis to get to his hostal (there is a scam going on when you arrive at the bus terminal. see Calidad House´s instructions for help) They have wifi and a computer fro free use. It broke down while we were there - and got replaced the same day! incredible!
