Great and helpful staff, wonderful hostel that has a cute hammock and bar area open to the outside. Wifi was fast and the rooms were nice. Stayed in a bunk bed room that had its own bathroom which was convenient. Loved the outdoor space and the location.

We only intended to stay for 3 nights but ended up staying 7. The staff truly are wonderful. They don't hesitate to chat with the guests and really fit in with the social atmosphere. It's not a party hostel, it's a social hostel. There was a family with a young kid, a vivacious 60+ solo traveler and a friendly "paisas"... More

This place is easily one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. It's located in a great neighborhood in Medellin that's not too touristy, but also safe and full of restaurants, bars and stores. Definitely a much more interesting place than Poblado! The hostel itself is also the perfect mix of active and tranquil. The people I met there... More

Not a terrible stay for the price (stayed in dorm). Doors to rooms are not full closure so sound carries all throughout hostel, as does cigarette smoke. Floors of the dorm were filthy but otherwise hostel was fairly clean. You could cook your own breakfast which was nice, and kitchen facilities were good. Cigarette smoke was what really broke it...

We just randomly chose this hostel as at the time it was the only one with a 3 room spot available-- we lucked out! This hostel was much better than expected with reasonable prices and a helpful, friendly staff to go with it! Recommend Palm Tree Hostel for sure.
