Pros: The attention to detail: service wise the whole staff was super friendly and sincere. The interior design in the other hand is incredibly cool and captivating. Small things like being able to pet Bruno (The cutest dog ever), the real and fresh flowers in the bathroom, the birds flying free all over the house and the passion fruit soap in the room, to me made the whole stay a magical experience.
Cons: My mom gets cold at Cartagena at night (The hottest city in Colombia), that said, she says hot water would be an enhancement to an already 5 star property.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: A really wonderful and comfortable place to stay with lots of character. Even enjoyed the outdoor shower! Miguel was very friendly and helpful.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Stylish, nice little hostel in a super quiet area of town. The breakfast was very tasty, the people friendly and the small single room a good value for single travellers. The room is also very stylish, designed in a natural way and the bed super comfy. There are a lot of common areas with comfortable hammocks and sofas.
Cons: I wished there would have been mosquito nets. There are quiet some mosquitos around and the chemical mosquito plug doesn't prevent them from biting. As it is a hostel and a café it would be great to get a real coffee for breakfast (tinto alike) and not Nescafe.

The view from the room and shower was fantastic. We loved the open air shower. Breakfast was served on the terrace and was very good. We highly recommend this hotel.
Cons: Nothing, we spent 3 nights and everything was perfect.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is beautiful: get a room with a balcony - the view is worth the extra money. The staff are friendly and the hotel is clean and comfortable. Breakfast is excellent. The hotel provides a laundry service at a good price per kg. There are also some board games and a lovely garden full of herbs and birds. The manager gave us a reduced rate for a single occupancy in a double room.
Cons: We didn’t mind the walk back to the hotel but it’s 5 minutes uphill from the center of town (but Barichara is tiny, you’ll never be too far away). The parking space provided is not free and is a few blocks from the hotel. These are just minor quibbles; our stay was a delight.
8.3 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: A good hotel to relax and unwind, nothing was too much trouble for the staff
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Two things make this property stand out: the service and attention of the staff and the quiet and pastoral location. Oscar, the owner, is just phenomenal in his flexibility and helpfulness in arranging activities, getting you to and fro, and simply making sure you are 100% satisfied. If you asked him to do backflips, I’m sure he’d sure try. Also, he’s a good English speaker and fun conversationalist. I’ll remember this place for a long time. Highly recommended!
Cons: I gave Oscar a few suggestions (e.g. providing shampoo in the showers) that he readily embraced.
7.5 Good
Pros: It has a beautiful pool, also the view of hotel is amazing. We enjoyed nice cocktails and food there.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: What a wonderful oasis away from the hustle and bustle. The pool overlooking the valley is just magic. The staff are super friendly and helpful.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Oscar the owner was very helpful. He picked us up from the bus station and speaks fluent English and Spanish. He helped arrange tours. Breakfast is good.
Cons: It was difficult to open the door to our room and if you don’t have a car it is a bit far from San Gil (but with a car or if planning to relax by the pool it’s not a problem).
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hosts where extremely friendly and helpful and the place was ideal and super clean. It know it may sound familiar to hear that a colombian host is friendly, they all pretty much are. However, here we had forgotten a charger and needed to get a bus for Bogota as soon as possible and the staff organised for a motorbiker to come and give us the charger right before we had to leave.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Super nice and welcoming staff. Great pool. We were the only guests so it was as if we had our private resort. Good food!
Cons: Since it’s quiet new our taxi driver didn’t know how to get there. It is a bit far from San Gil but it gives you beautiful views and complete silence in return :)

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Had a great stay and time at Traveler Hostel in San Gil! Really nice and cosy (and clean). Having said that what made me most happy about the place were the staff; very open and chill, really felt like family:-). Would certainly recommend!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Hello, this was the best hostel we went to in 6 years travelling around the world. The staff is very friendly and helps you organising the tours, as many good hotels do. But what made them so outstanding, is that the employees (although not living in the hostel), treat it like their own home. Therefore it is constantly extremely clean, as the hostel is small, it is like living with a big loving family. For a decent price you get to chose from 2 different breakfast options. Both are cooked with love and you feel like being in ' hotel mommy' ;-P There is one warm shower. Also they just finished renovating and we were the first to sleep in the new beds. Excellent stable bunk beds in our 6-doorm and the mattress was heaven. The location is central to the market and some bus stations. All booked tour (I believe) are picking you up at the hostel. Thanks again for those 4 days! Ella and Jérôme
Cons: Nothing negative!

But they found me a room that worked easily.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hostal is super clean and the location is fantastic as it’s just one block away from the mini terminal. Please note there are two terminals in San Gil - the main one where there are buses to Bucaramanga/Bogota, which is pretty far from the center of San Gil (the main park) as well as the hostal, and the mini one where you can catch the buses to the villages close to San Gil such as Barichara.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Lovely hotel, very clean, with nice equiped kitchen and very well located. More of a boutique hotel than a hostel in the vibe.
Cons: staff not always flexible and have given us wrong information about the activities a couple times (advised wrong hiking time so found ourselves hiking as ut was getting dark for example, That happened more than once). I advise going externally for accurate info about the activities and tours. As solo traveller, it's not the best place to meet people. There were more families and couples there due to the boutique hotel feel.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The common areas are very nice and there is a decent kitchen.
Cons: The room was very noisy, right next to a busy road.
7.5 Good
Pros: Older lady and guy were friendly and helpful. Good adventure deals the hostel can book for you, also last minute. Earlier check in after overnight bus was possible.
Cons: 2-person room was quite loud at the street side, also, no proper window to open. Younger woman working reception at evening was far from helpful, even rude to us. Did not make an effort communicate, and disinterested most of the time (staring at phone/texting, while we were in front of her).
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent peaceful hostel in the centre of San Gil. Big room with bathroom. Good kitchen and plenty of places to relax. Very friendly and helpful staff. No question from us was too difficult! Like being in a private home!

Pros: This is a pleasant resort-type hotel with expansion plans and a congenial staff. Easy access from the San Gil highway and good parking. The pool is large and clean and the facilities are well maintained. Breakfast is typical Colombian and fine, as far as that goes.
Cons: The location is a little too far to walk into San Gil due to the amount of highway traffic.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly people and you actually don't have to leave the hotel as they have a good restaurant, swimming pool, jacuzzi and saunas.
Cons: A bit hard to find (at least in the dark). And lots of noise from the road on the other side of the water.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The views from the balcony were incredible, and we could watch condors flying over head during breakfast every day which was amazing. The staff were extremely friendly, the rooms and bathrooms were very clean and pretty modern. It was much quiter than staying in the centre of San Gil. The pool was good and the spa was equally nice. During low season you are likely to have the place to yourself.
Cons: The breakfast wasn't great, and the restaurant menu had too many options and often didn't have what was shown.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: I never leave reviews but this place was so incredible. I was allowed to check in early and warmly greeted upon arrival. My room is huge with a private kitchenette and gorgeous outdoor shower. Breakfast was delicious, different daily, and clearly made with love. The owners are two of the kindest people I have met during my 5 months in South America- they went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed. I cannot recommend this place enough.
Cons: Nothing. Loved everything. It is a bit further from town that I realized so be prepared to walk. However you get to walk through gorgeous mountains and fields so the walk is more of a benefit! Or they will help you call for transportation if you prefer.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: A very warm welcome from Stella and Carlos. The environment is perfect. In the middle of nature on a hill with breathtaking view on Barichara. Tranquility guaranteed!. And very charming apartments. It is about a 20 minutes walk to town, or you can ask to call in a tuk-tuk taxi. In the morning a delicious breakfast is served, and as an option you can have a delicious and healthy dinner for a reasonable price.
Cons: EVERYTHING was very good.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Moncora hostel is amazing. The staff is so friendly and helpful. We always had activities to do. Everything is veru clean and convenient. Felpie the manager knows a ton of stuff about the region too so he can really help get the real local experience.
7.9 Good
Pros: We booked a double bedroom with private bathroom. Room is spacious enough, bathroom with hot shower and good water pressure. Shared kitchen is nice. Location is 3 min walk from the main plaza with plenty of restaurants nearby. Staff is pleasant, there are 2 nice cats and a dog, who likes to bark early though ...
Cons: It gets very noisy early in the morning as all bedrooms are located around a patio where the reception is. The staff, although polite and pleasant are quite noisy in the morning; talking on the phone, putting videos or music. Noise can be an issue if you need to sleep in later than 7am (even with earplugs).
2.5 Mediocre
Cons: We stayed for five nights. Every morning at around 7am it occurred to the caretaker to open the front door and let in the outside traffic noise that would wake us up. After two nights I asked them to keep the door closed, closed it, but after 10 minutes they opened it again. Then they started playing loud music while their kids were running around outside our door. The unfriendly receptionist boy made his breakfast and left a mess in the kitchen, didn't clean up until we asked him to, as we needed to use the blender. Our room was never once cleaned, we weren't given new towels, the toilet paper bin wasn't emptied in five days. Listen to your guests' complaints, they are the ones paying your salary. Be professional and clean your hostel, otherwise you won't have many guests in the future.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very nice staff and cat, good value for money!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Location, cleanliness and friendly staff
Cons: The shower got flooded, and there wasn’t always hot water
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The location of the hostel is up one of the many steep hills in San Gil, but is fairly close to the main square. The hammocks out the back of the building are nice, but unfortunately, the hostel's cats use the area as a cat litter, so the smell up there can be a bit much. The room was spacious and the shower had hot water, which was a nice bonus.
Cons: We wanted to stay an extra night and asked the day before if this was OK. However, after a lazy morning when we were going to head out for some breakfast, we were informed by the lady on reception that we needed to check out because the hostel was closing for maintenance. So, we didn't get to go out for breakfast and had to rush to pack and leave the hostel and find another one quickly.

Cons: As the main dorm room was next to the reception area, when people spoke in the reception area in the morning, it was a bit loud. Not too bad as it wasn't too early, but enough that you couldn't have much of a lie in.
