We stayed for a total of 3 nights at Hostel San Fernando. The room was very clean, the air-con nice and cold. Mini-bar in the room and cable tv. We stayed in the private-twin, which was a big room with an en-suite. The Hostal itself is perfect, it is secure, a 1 minute walk from the square with tonnes of... More

We stayed here for one night after allowing a taxi driver to suggest lodging for a quick stop over in Cali. Besides offering rooms with beds for guests to sleep in, "Hostal San Fernando" doesn't have one characteristic of a hostel. There is no kitchen to utilize, the environment isn't sociable or friendly, the one staff member isn't polite nor... More

This middle-aged couple and the mother in law did stay with us on June 21st. That week all of the hotels in the area were booked due to various yearly events that occur during high season in Cali. Before they checked in they were showed the last 2 rooms available due to a last minute cancellation. As they were able... More

I can't recommend this place based on my overall experience. First of all to be fair I will mention the good things about it. Location is very good. The neighborhood is safe and a lot of good places to eat and hang out at night. Prices were ok for what you get. Big room with cable, wiFi, a/c. Now where... More

This guest is right, the way things unfolded made us believe that he might be trying to scam us and because of that the owner warned us to keep an eye on him. This might have been construed by him as rudeness. When he arrived the manager pulled his reservation made by a booking site and it was flagged unpaid.... More

I stayed at the Hostal in October of 2010 mainly because it was only a block away from the clinic where I went to have some surgery done. I would say it’s a 3 star hotel, not luxury but met my basic needs which are AC, fast WiFi, good cable TV, plenty of hot water, a fridge for my fruit... More

thin, wornout mattresses, and a constant, nasty 'wet dog' smell always coming out of that kitchen hallway area - there are many cleaner (and friendlier) places to choose from in Cali. It was my 2d time at this place, but I will never stay there again - not with SO many other choices in Cali. The 1st time, several yrs... More

i stayed in this hostel about 6 years ago. The price quoted over the phone was not the same the night I arrived. The room was clean but was not really attractive.

When you get a bad review from a recent customer it is easily answered but who waits 6 years to post an opinion ! so you have no idea of what exactly the problem was and who the customer was.

I have stayed at Hostal San Fernando when I’ve visited Colombia for the past 6 years. I can't recall any other hotel in Cali where they remember me by name and make me feel at home.

I have never been to Cali before, I have lived in Bogota, Barranquilla, and visited Cartagena and Santa Marta. Cali is somewhat like Bogota, a bit smaller in population and warmer.
