I dont understand people staying in the hostels out of the town, on the map this place is the perfect location, its close to the Metro, but if you stay the other side of the metro you will have walk up the hill to find the things you need. This location has to be one of the best in the... More

I loved this hostel . It's well ubicated,confortable beds, the staff is friendly and one very important thing is that bathrooms are clean all the time. There is a bar and a pool table that make a nice place to have a beer. Fridays have free salsa lessons :) I really recommend this place

Nice friendly hostel in the heart of night life in Medellin. A little bar inside with a nice pool table. Clean spacious room will definitely refined it but if you are staying during the weekend and want to sleep avoid room number one it can get very noisy, other than that perfect

I loved this hostel. We ended up staying here longer than planned because we liked it so much. It's a great balance between everything my friend and I were looking for. It's in a great area within walking distance of plenty of stuff to do and the metro station (this is kind of a longer walk, maybe 1 km). It's... More
