“Fantastic Hostel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Fantastic hostel, run by a lovely, friendly couple...they were incredibly helpful and accommodating, was almost like staying with friends. The place itself is beautiful, with a fantastic terrace, and the location is perfect. And to top it all off, the breakfast was superb! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Enjoyed my stay at Kolibri, which has just opened. This hostel's best assests are its location and its staff. It's in a safe area in Pereira surrounded by restuarants, bars and shopping centres. There's a supermarket within 10 minute walk too. The staff are super nice and helped us organise a trip to the thermals and to catch our bus. They were wrong about the buses to Salento unfortunately, which resulted in us waiting 2 hours at the terminal (not a big deal). The hostel itself is kept fairly clean and the rooms are large. There's a kitchen I assume you can use. Breakfast is a bit pricey at 5,000 pesos but decent with eggs, arepa, fruit and coffee/hotchocolate. Downsides: #1 Beds are very uncomfortable because they are too big for the frames and thus slope upwards at the ends. More than one night would be a pain. #2 Our room was very noisy as the sounds from the bars came straight through, but this isn't that unusual in Sth America and you need to get used to this (and bring earplugs!). #3 The vibe is strange, certainly not a place to meet others. It was full when we got there but we couldn't quite figure out who the other guests were- a few families I think and also friends/family of the staff may have been hanging around. Doesn't bother me but makes the atmosphere a bit strange.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room at the back of the hostel

I showed up without a reservation in the midst of their maintenance and they were lovely enough to accomodate me. The hostel was gorgeous with antique tiling, wide-open spaces, and beautiful views from their terrace. The breakfast was delicious, better than most hostels. It is owned by a friendly couple (Colombian/Dutch) who are investing their dreams into this place. They take great care of you and help you find fun stuff to do in Pereira.
