Reviewed 26 May 2014

This hostel is beautiful. its in a bit white mansion in CAli and it has an awesome pool. The garden and terrace is really nice.
But, best of all is the staff. We love Miguel, Oscar 1 and Oscar 2.
There was a really relaxed vibe in the hostel. We had confusion with our bus timetable and the hostel was really accommodating when we had to cancel our booking on our last night at the last minute.
Its a little out of town, but still walkable to San Antonio and parks.
they make yummy dinners you can buy, the kitchen is huge, the dorms and bathrooms (there are soo many bathrooms) are really clean and nice.
they have a big movie projector, bar, sauna.

Love this type of hostel, is for everyone, with low or big budget. the guys were so helpful and kind with us specially Luis and Sammi. I would recommend this place, and def would come back soon. Love the salsa class and the bar. the pool was a little dirty and the location was really hard to find, I suggest they should have a big sign with the name on it. thanks for everything :)

Room Tip: take the girls room I think is the 104 is always empty and with a clean bathroom inside

Really nice hostel! The staff are really cool and helpful, big love to oscar, Louis and Sammy :)
The bathrooms are really clean and always stocked with toilet roll. Nice pool area and comfy tv room to hang out in. I would definitely recommend people to stay here. Oh there is also a bar with selection of cocktails, beers and shots if you want a cheeky drink by the pool.

It's a very good hostel with nice Pool and comfortable beds. The stuff sami and Oscar and Luis are very friendly and helpful and made me having a great stay. The Hostel seems more like a Hotel than a Hostel, because of the nice outside area and the beautiful building. They have good Drinks and food at the Bar and for breakfast you get fresh fruit, cereals and jam and bread. The offer free Salsalesson in the Hostel what was really good. The bathrooms are clean and big with good Showers and hot water. It is lokated in a nice and save area bit outside of the center, but you can walk there in 20 minutes. The Hostel was probably the best Hostel that i stayed in Surfing my Trip.

La Pinta Boogaloo is a lovely, big, old house that has been turned into a hostel. It has a great sunbathing area complete with poo, sun loungers, outdoor toilet and several different areas to relax in. There's a TV room with a projector, so you can watch TV or movies on the DVD player and another room opposite if you don't want to watch TV. The kitchen is big, well equipped and clean. The room we stayed in was more than big enough for the two of us and right next to one of the bathrooms which was convenient. The bathrooms were clean and seemed to be relatively new. There's a bar with a choice of cocktails, beer, juices or you can buy a bottle of spirit. The hostel also does food which is really good, the menu isn't huge but perfect for lunch/dinner if you don't fancy going far. Free breakfast in the morning is ample; bread, jam, cereal, fruit and coffee is available all day. The hostel is very close to the zoo and about a 10 minute walk to San Antonio. A big plus, the staff are brilliant. Karina is very helpful and will give you recommendations of where to go for food etc and Oscar is very friendly. They both make a good cocktail too! I'd highly recommend staying here if you're planning on going to Cali.

carlos, miguel and oscar were so very helpful with anything we could possibly need with directions except when they say police station as a turning point you really need to know where that point is because if you go past it you will be a long way down the hill and a very steep climb is needed to get back! it does not look anything like a police station! anyway, the pool, and steamroom and sauna were the best features of this place. they also had a nice breakfast every morning of two fruits, sugar cereal and bread, with coffee.. the chriping frogs will keep you awake so just know they are romantic at first, but they WILL NOT SHUT UP! but oscar was very accomodating and gave us an upgraded room the second night we decided to stay. the reason we decided to stay in the quite far away hostel is because my husband fixed the steamroom in what we thought would be a second night for free stay, but that did not happen which was a little dissappointing. we were told we would get a heavy discount, but 10% was a little like a smack in the face when bob gets paid $200/hour for electrician and plumbing work. bob also fixed the bikes after we ere sent out with no brakes on one of them, but in the end, it was a superb place to stay and we really had the MOST fun EVER at the boogaloo hostel. very quiet, serene and relaxing! and getting lost is our kind of fun, so that was included with a lot of great exercise! the chirping frogs are nice in the beginning but they wear on you and do not allow for good sleep, so bring earplugs! the second night we were there after they moved us to a quieter room, BUT we awoke at 4 a.m. for about 20 minutes of what sounded like the night person getting robbed and then the robber ransacking the place, and when i went out to see what the racket was, it was the printer going off. oops. was not a good time to print off maps or whatever needed printing off.

Room Tip: the ones downstairs are the loudest, the ones upstairs are the quietest, except for the office area.

Fantastic place with a pool and fancy style. They have a projector room with cable TV and Netflix (although the netflix remote was missing while I was there). You can tell this place use to be a ritzy guesthouse but has been reappropraited into a budget hostel. Great vibe most of the time but it is a bit too quiet on the weekends if you're looking for a social place as a solo traveller. Easy enough to catch a cab out to the nightclub district though!
The staff were great!! Friendliest hostel staff I've encountered in ages. Carlos, John and Carina get special mentions because they all went above and beyond to help me and gave great recommendations.

Only complaints was my laundry was meant to be done the day before I left and I checked at night and it hadn't been washed yet so I had to take it back dirty. Annoying but forgivable. Also their feisty dog Capitán is fun but hadn't been trained well and barks loudly whenever the doorbell is rung, in the dead of night in an echoey building it is very annoying.
