This zone is calm and safe, at night, you will find many Colombians going out at the 'Parque del Perro'. In close vicinity, there is a delicious local restaurant (El Quijote), two supermarkets and several bars. The rooms are...

I called this place home for about three months. The hostel is really well situated in the barrio of San Fernando. All your needs are within walking distance: Parque del Perro with its bars and restaurants is only a few blocks away as are two supermarkets. Two nightclubs, Mazao and Tin Tin Deo, as well are within walking distance. The...

OK, so the thing about the rules is true. The owners can be quite extravagant with the rules that they impose to the travellers, however, don't be scared by that as there is a reason why this is the top rated hostel in Cali. Mauricio is a great host, always there to help and taking us to the salsa clubs....
