As we arrived they ignored us for 15 minutes while we waited at the desk. The woman behind the counter was aggressive and blunt towards us and before even greeting us with a smile she had us signing the 'rule' book. The thing that set us off however was that we booked the Estabar tour 2 days in a row... More

We stayed for two nights in Medellin and this hotel was probably the most appropriate one for this type of city. Just 10 min walk to the party zone, huge hostel with own bar, ping pong, pool, and many other activities. Check-in took us a bit long since there was only one person at the reception and lots of other... More

Very well thought place. Because of the different things to do in it, its a great place to meet people. The room I stayed in, was nice and clean, although you could hear everything happening outside your room so take that into account if you like sleeping before 12pm (everything is turned off at this time). Else than that probably... More

Nice enough hostel, pool, tv room, bar... Although as we all know it's the people and staff that can make a hostel great and that's what makes pitstop into a distinctly average hostel rather than a great one. Pretty rude, unhelpful and generally miserable staff! Why these people are allowed on reception is beyond me!

The bar has... More

Awesome hostel. A big courtyard with a pool, a basketball court, and a volleyball court. The friendly staff and good location makes it great stop for any backpacker. The bar is fun with salsa lessons on thursdays and has a pool table as well. I'd recommend it to any of my friends traveling to Medellin.
