I personally love socializing and meeting other travellers, so the common space of the hostel is always the most important thing to me. Here there is a rooftop terrace with mini pool, several dining areas, community kitchen, home cinema, restaurant, mini bar...all these spaces close at midnight and they are strict about quiet hours so getting enough sleep is never...

This is the perfect backpacker hostel in Medellin. Very cheap (~$10 usd/day), and is a 1-2 minute walk to all of the great cafes, restaurants, and bars that park illeras has to offer. There's also a bar inside of the hostel with beers on tap, very nice/helpful staff, and guided/organized tours.

This us not my first stay at casa kiwi. I was here 3 years ago and it was great. Not so much any more. The place is or was owned by an American but he seems to have left the place to fall apart. Current staff is very unhelpful and doesn't appear to be the most intelligent. For example you... More

The atmosphere and welcome from the staff is second to none. Especially from Frederico and David. The environment is conducive to making friends for life, which I did... If you want a hostel with a party atmosphere and friendly guests, this is second to none. Get involved

The hostel itself was beautiful and common areas looked more like an exotic hotel than a backpacker hostel. Great kitchen service, friendly staff, clean rooms, nice bar, comfortable common areas, SUPER well located. Normally this place would get 5 stars, but... I got a really bad vibe from some of the people staying at the hostel. I understand this isn't... More

Very nice hostel in a good area of Medellin. Hostel was very clean. Staff was outstanding: Although arriving late at night I received a warm welcome and was shown the amenities. During the day lots of cleaners ensure place is clean and front desk staff helped me with booking tours and directions. Spacious common areas: hammocks and little pool on... More

Stayed in a bedbug infested room for 3 nights. The final day when it was sprayed with Phenoxyphenyl insecticide for 3 hours we were expected by the staff to stay in the same room. Promptly left. Unless you want bloodsuckers in your belongings...don't unzip your bag here

Well... Everything was great. The atmosphere was lovely, the food was fabulous etc. Except I got eaten by bed bugs. The room was sprayed down with some kind of poison and the ladies pulled the bed to pieces, but then they expected us to sleep in the room that evening. The room was all stinky with poison and the bed... More
