  • Description


    Hello everyone! My name is Julian and I just opened a hostel with two of my good friends in Cali. Although I have been working as a photographer for the last several years I have always wanted to open a hostel as I enjoy meeting people from different cultures and sharing experiences.
    The hostel is located in a large colonial house with spacious social areas and living spaces. We are in San Antonio, one of the most quaint and vibrant neighborhoods of the city, filled with restaurants, bars, theaters, and dance schools. We are close to downtown, the river, other interesting areas, and public transportation. The hostel is newly opened and we are still working on the finishing touches, but there is room for 30 people, split between four dorm rooms with between four and eight beds, and two private rooms.
    There is a well-stocked communal kitchen open to both guests and very soon we will have a bar and pool in the back yard, where you can relax and socialize.
