I stayed at this hostel for two nights and found the place to be very clean and comfortable. However, a female hostel "owner" who failed to introduce herself left a very bad taste in my mouth. During a Friday evening at around 9 15 the reception arrived at the table tennis room and asked myself and a guest from Sams... More

Stayed for two nights and wished it was more. Lovely, calm, tranquil place to rest after morning adventure sports around San Gil. Excellent restaurant they have on the first floor, and the owner Silvia is a great host. The room was comfy and a fan keeps you cool during night. The hostel can hook you up with the best rafting...

I went to San Gil from Cartagena to be in a place less touristy, cooler, and more access to nature. This is a lovely old mansion with 8 or 9 rooms on the second floor on a mezzanine around a central courtyard open to the restaurant below. My dorm room had 3 sets of bunk beds with its own bathroom.... More

The room I was in had no windows, I took a private room with a bathroom, and the amenities were average. The hostel is contained on the first floor (above the ground floor) and also has dorms, it seems popular with budget travellers. There was no kitchen facilities and no real common area apart from the restaurant downstairs which doubles... More

This is one of the nicest hostels I've ever stayed in. It has clean rooms, a great restaurant, friendly staff who are really helpful, and is just off the main square of town. Gringo Mike's is next door and Sam's VIP a short walk away. It really is a good place to stay and base yourself for a visit to... More
