Perfect no frills hostel. Our private room was very clean. The common areas were well kept and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hostel to anyone looking to stay in the this area in Medellin. I especially liked the in house dogs lola and Spartacus!

After travelling all around beautiful Columbia this hostel was the only one to disappoint. It was grubby, run down, had an unfriendly vibe and to be honest completely over rated! We had planned to stay 3 nights in a private room but were so disgusted by the wobbly bunks, dangerous sockets with wires hanging out of them, paint flaking and... More

Was recommended this hostel by friends but was disappointed. I'm not at all fussy but this hostel is VERY rundown. There is very little public areas to sit and chat with friends, the pool looks dirty and the rooms are like dungeons. Stayed in a 10 bed with no air con and couldn't open door are there were cockroaches and... More

I did not enjoy my stay here, the staff were rude and didn't manage to smile at me once during my stay. I stayed in a 12 bed dorm and there were bugs everywhere, I woke up to one crawling on my face one night! The sheets didn't seem clean and it generally felt dirty throughout the hostel, there were...

Dubbed a party hostel and the website said organised events to get the ball rolling...these didn't materialise! With over priced beer and short happy hour they could be better and engaging the many people...over 100 beds...also very strict on bringing alcohol in! My 8 bed dorm was at front of house with ensuite and decent. If in outer buildings then... More

It is an amazing hostel, really friendly people and you will have the time of your life. When you arrive in this hostel you will forget all your problems and make it happen. The partyscene overhere is amazing and the people who worked behind the desk are great. They only risk is that you want to stay here!

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!
