I spent the weekend at La Pinta Bogaloo and I have to say that the place has nice potencial but the experience was under my expectations. The twin room me and my friend booked was really small, humid and had dirty linens when we arrived (they did change it when we complained). The guy that attended us seemed high on...

Great food, great amenities, rooms were basic with a 80's cabin feel to it. No curfew, staff was very helpful and friendly. There isn't much in walking distance, still close to everything, but Uber works in Cali and is VERY cheap and RELIABLE. My favorite part was having breakfast on the patio with everyone :) I would definitely stay there...

I've stayed at this place three times and it's brilliant from start to finish. If you want to stay at a finca that's like a classy mansion with beautiful gardens and a big swimming pool, surrounded by lovely staff and travellers with an environment of everyone constantly seeming relaxed and happy and making friends especially easily...this is for you.

I stayed in this hostel for four days and can't find fault with it. The layout is more like a big house than a hostel with the biggest kitchen I've seen in my 5 months of travelling. There's a decent sized pool with space to chill as well. The food is delicious at a fair price. I would highly recommend...

We stayed at La Pinta Boogaloo last month and ended up staying longer than we planned. They have a good range of different size rooms, if you want a little luxury ask for the double which has the staircase by the swimming pool. The showers were hot, the pool was clean and looked after and great in the Cali heat....

Really beautiful hotel, common room to watch movies, use computers. Great garden with a big pool, large and well equipped kitchen. There is also a dance room where you can take salsa classes every night for FREE (Cali is the city of salsa). There is a restaurant from breakfast to dinner, a bar and happy hours. The breakfast (included) is...

Apparently a hideout of the young Pablo Escobar. Jungle sound at night time, super spacious hostel, cute cat + dog, nice salchipapas, swimming pool water quality needs attention though! Prices are too low too. Nevertheless a great choice to stay.

Very clean, friendly staff, cheap. Location isn't the best, but that's not an issue, and it's definitely worth the walk or bus anywhere you want to go. The restaurant there is a bit pricey, but you can find cheap menu items. The smoothie was fantastic.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
La Pinta Boogaloo is a hostel that looks like an hotel boutique. It's managed by Colombian travelers for Colombian and foreign travelers who want to feel at home. And what a home it is! Once a luxurious family house, it is now a beautiful hostel for those who want to explore Cali, stay a few days for work or simply relax. Within more than 1.700 Square meters our guests will find a swimming pool, a movie projector room, a salsa lessons classroom, large gardens, hammocks areas, restaurant, fully-equipped kitchen, 24 hour hot water, parking, events, activities and a lot more. Located in Bellavista, a great area of Cali between the colonial San Antonio neighborhood, Cali's famous Zoo and the nightlife activity of El Penon and Granada. It is the only place a few minutes from the city center where you can lay back, and relax as if you were in the middle of nature. We offer different types of accommodations: Double and Triple Suites with large bathrooms and cable TV, private rooms with private and shared bathrooms, female dorms, mixed 8 and 10 people dorms and the most adventurous can even lodge in tents. ... more   less
