The room was super clean. Staff are really friendly and helpful - didn't mind me hanging out in the hostel and using the kitchen even after I'd checked out and printed out boarding passes for me. A decent breakfast is included. It's in a great location, just a few minutes from the metro. The whole building was really clean, bathrooms... More

Just a short walk from the metro, this place has beautiful clean rooms. WiFi works perfectly. Hot showers. And the breakfast is a nice finishing touch. Actual eggs, bread, cereal and yoghurt as opposed to the stale bread and jam option that most hostels seem to give. The kitchen is well equipped with pots and pans, cutlery and cups. They... More

We stayed in Palm Tree for 7 days and we loved it! The dorms are clean, there's hot water in the showers, free breakfast, book exchange, superfast wi-fi, a bar, not noisy at all and best of all: the staff is amazing!!! As for the price, it is probably the cheapest option in Medellin if you think about what you... More

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...
