Very helpful staff and a nice chill atmosphere! Superb location, very easy to find your way back after a night out. Ping pong table is off the hook! Dormbeds are comfy as hell, and the owner is an awesome guy! Also there is a pretty well equipped kitchen for self caterers! Check it out

Very convenient location, within 5min walk from el Parque Llenas, and yet no disturbed by the street noise. The hostel is fully equipped with Internet, TV space (incl DVDs), a bar that serves local beer (very cool) and a small outside terrace for the smokers (or not!). The only downside is the size of the kitchen - but at the... More

This hostel is well located for the restaurants and bars of El Poblado. The communal areas are pleasant and well equipped and it is an easy place to get chatting to other travellers if you're looking to meet people. Staff were all lovely and helpful on our visit. This for me though is the end of the positives. I can... More

I had fun there over Christmas,, they have a nice bar and outdoor area out the front. The staff are friendly and the rooms and bathrooms are clean. However, I gave the laundry department all of my clothes to wash, costing 20.000 for 4 kilograms, and when I got my clothes back there were still some of my clothes hanging... More

I stayed in a private bedroom on the ground floor, which had no exterior windows and smelled strongly of mildew. The bedding was old, no soap was provided in the en suite bathroom, and noise from the loud common room was constantly booming through the one tiny interior window which allowed strangers to see in as they passed (through the...

Good location, but no better than the numerous other hostels in the area Private rooms expensive for no window, tiny double and no other furniture Music blasted until one in the morning solely for the benefit of the empty bar

I was there during 3 days, traveling with 2 friends. The facilities are really good and beds really comfortable. The staff girls are really nice people, they make you feel comfortable. Other travelers were not that sociable but that's not the hostel fault. Localization is great, next to the main bar/club zone in Medellin, located in the best neighborhood, el... More

We wanted to stay for a week and asked for the smallest discount in a private non wifi room and it was refused because the owner said he would be able to get people there at full price which didn't turn out to be the case. It ended up being a good thing because we decided not to stay there... More

I stayed here for three nights and had a great time. The happy hour every night is an awesome deal and the staff is super friendly. The hostel is right around the corner from all the bars and restaurants in el poblado as well which was really convenient. However, the dorm we stayed in only had one light which was... More
