We were a parent and teen, staying a week. It was perfect. We had a lovely, simple, well-organised room in a comfortable, reasonable hotel where there is a hammock in one courtyard (as well as the front desk, sofas, and a patio table, perfect for relaxing in a evening), a dining room & 2 kitchens (one for the hotel, one...

This hostel is located in a pretty and old building with colonial features. The private room we had was big and very nice. The windows at the street side could be opened. The hostel consists of multiple cute court yards where you can hang out. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The only down side was that we didn't...

Although I try out new digs when I come to Cali, I have not stayed anywhere as close to Hostal Ruta Sur. The property is amazingly tranquil and very naturalistic. I love the plants, the open air, and most of all the personal attention Claudia and staff are my family when I come to Cali. Conveniently located to many places...

When I read the reviews for this place from home I thought people must be exaggerating. But they were all telling the truth, this place was one of the best places I've stayed in. My sister booked it for us since she stayed here before. She also had told me how nice the owner and staff are. Claudia the owner...

Nice rooms, very clean, lovely staff, good kitchen, good wifi, great location. One of my favorite places so far! Definately recommend this place to people...

Ruta Sur is the best hostel i stayed at in Latin America. It's a wonderful oasis in Cali with so much warmth and helpfulness from everyone working there. When we arrived I was sick and needed to see a doctor. Half an hour later - thanks to Claudia - I had a physician attending me in my room. Everything is...

The most amazing, friendly welcoming Hostel and it's all because of Claudia and Claudita. They will look after you and make you feel very welcome. The hostel itself feels very safe and the atmosphere is very relaxed. The location is amazing with loads of nice restaurants, street art and bars nearby

Boyfriend and I spent beautiful two nights at Hostal Ruta Sur. This was hands down the best place we stayed at during our 3 week trip in Colombia. The room, the common areas, the price, the location, and, most of all, the warm hospitality of Eva and Claudia were great. We had an amply spacious and tastefully decorated private room...
