Really enjoyed our stay at Palm tree however was quite difficult to meet people. No one seemed to mingle which was a little sad for an hostel. Pilar and Daniella (hope I spelt these correctly) were great also and really pushed us to practice our Spanish. Room was comfortable size and bathrooms were good also. Wifi was great.

So you rock up, and you're greeted by a super friendly, smiling staff member (in our case it was Pilar, and Luz, and later Daniela), they chat to you and show you around, and then you can either relax in one of the hammocks, chill out in the little upstairs open air terrace thingo and watch thunderstorms, or hide from...

Location isn't great. There isn't enough bathrooms for the no of guests. Bathrooms are not clean. Shower is a drip and not powerfully at all. Hot water runs out after a few people use it, so use have to have to go for a shower either very early (6am) or late at night. Rooms do not have enough power points... More

Palm tree was a lovely spot to crash in Medellin. If you are looking for a friendly, welcoming hostel in a quieter part of the city, you won't be disappointed. The hostel is in a quiet neighborhood that seems mostly residential. A number of good restaurants are around, and it is located only a few minutes' walk to the metro,... More

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
