I spent 2 nights with Yenny, the "owner" of The Green House and, with one exception, couldn't have asked for a more pleasant stay. The hostel is located a pleasant 20-min walk to the city's historical centre. It is comfortably appointed with a nice lounge area, outdoor deck, kitchen and other "spaces". My room was spacious, the shower ... invigorating...

Greenhouse really feels like home, with Yenny (the owner) as the mother, Lucia (the salsa teacher - free class everyday!) as the exuberant sister and the couple of long-stay residents as the rest of the family. Cali is all about dancing, and Greenhouse is the surest way to make the most of it. Full green light !

The staff was very helpful and friendly. Moreover there were free salsa lessons offered. The hostel is located close to the center, just 5 min walk to the Parque de los Gatos. You can find nice restaurants and bars there aswell as a supermarket, all in walking distance. However I couldnt get much rest. It was just too noisy because...

We stayed three nights here. The staff are wonderful, the rooms big and clean, good common areas and free salsa classes a couple of times a week (I think, we had one class while there and it was really good). The location is excellent - near the cat park a stone's throw away from San Antonio district. We would definitely...

Because of the very good Feedback and the nice price we booked a doublebed in the dormitorio. The hostal is located right next to a big up hill street and the dormitorio is located in the streets direction. The problem was that there are windows without any glases. Therefore it is very loud all day and night long. Even with...
