We stayed at this hostel as it was one the cheapest options in Medellin however it was one of the worst options. The staff were ok but they treated the hostel for their own good. They played really loud rubbish chart music from lunch time onward until the late evening even on a week day! They had a tv room... More

The hostel is located near calle 10 in El Poblado, that's a huge plus and one of the reasons I chose to stay there. Staff is friendly and cheapest dorm-bed was good enough I you need a place to stay for a good price. the hostel itself is a bit old and Medellin's weather doesn't help at all... it can... More

Straight to the point the main problem with this hostel is the manager Annie. The staff otherwise are good! The problem with her is that of your a group of guys staying here she is very friendly and flirty.

Stayed there for a night from Friday to Saturday. Don't expect to get too much sleep there during the weekend as this hostel is close to the/a party zone in El Poblado. Not so good value for money. My room (single room) was rather dark and not too clean. Staff is friendly though and Internet ok. Wouldn't do it again.
