Great location and friendly staff that loved to chat and help out. Rooms were beautiful and clean and the shower was awesome. The kitchen facilities were great and the courtyard garden is lovely. Kind of felt like staying at your aunties house!

Rooms were very clean, high ceilings, nicely decorated with antique wood furniture, comfortable mattress and ensuite bathroom was spotless and the shower hot and powerful. Beautiful old restored colonial building with an interior courtyard and attention to detail in the decoration of the place. Staff were really friendly and helpful. You can join the salsa class at El Viajero hostel for 5000cop just go in there and ask to sign up. Also check out the Andean music at 7pm on Thursdays( maybe all weekend too?) at parque loma de la Cruz where tons of people get together to dance in choreography.

We stayed at Ruta Sur for one night during our travels around Colombia. This little hostel is so sweet and Claudia the owner is great, she was waiting to welcome us as soon as we arrived. The hostel is very clean, rooms are good and the en suit bathroom was lovely with a great shower. Perfect location.

From the moment we arrived, Claudia and staff welcomed us like friends returning to a comfortable stay in her home. The rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. Each faced a central courtyard and soon became a favorite gathering place. Her hospitality encouraged all the guests to interact and made our stay very enjoyable. The location is in the historical San Antonio district which was ideal. We were close to many attractions that Cali has to offer such as the zoo, parks, festivities for the Salsa festival, etc. We yearn to return to Cali in the near future and hope Claudia has a room available again as it will be top of the list for our next stay.

The hostal was a beautiful welcome to Colombia. The location is close to many restaurants, salsa clubs, and bakeries. Claudia, the hostess, is extremely friendly and helpful with any questions or just to chat! Although we did not eat at the restaurant, we saw many of the guests eating and hanging out in the courtyard. The rooms were clean and comfortable with private bathrooms in each. I will definitely go back to visit!

This is definitely better than any hostal. It's like a little oasis with a very nice patio and hammocks. There is as well a kitchen that we used to cook and even to make fruit shakes (there is a blender). The owner is a very friendly young women that has already travelled herself. The rooms are lovely and are nicely decorated.

My friend and I stayed in Cali over a weekend in December and chose this hostel from the reviews on Trip Advisor.

This is an OUTSTANDING hostel. The beds are comfortable, rooms clean and airy and the place is so quiet that you forget you are in noisy Cali!

Claudia is wonderful and so helpful with everything you ask, not only about Cali. She was giving us lots of advice about other places to go too!

The location is perfect and makes it easy to get around. I would totally recommend this hostel if you are staying in Cali.
