“Free salsa & yoga and the friendliest staff I've encountered!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2009

This place is quaint and provides all the standard things one looks for in a hostel. Clean rooms and bathrooms, hot water, security for your things, laundry service, kitchen, internet and wifi as well as a TV area.

What makes it exceptional is the provision of free yoga and salsa classes and the amazing friendly and caring staff who work there. I had coffee brought to me each morning and they are always more than willing to help you with anything you need. In addition they make an effort to get everyone involved in the festivities and salsa night life of Cali.
