Casa Kiwi is great for partying and meeting travelers, but don't expect any peace and quiet if you stay here. It is centrally located in Poblado, a few blocks from Parque Lleras and the major restaurant/nightlife spots in Zona Rosa. The Hostel has a younger vibe. The guest kitchen facilities are adequate, although space in the refrigerator is very limited.... More

This is a pretty average hostel. The staff aren't that friendly and the service is unbearably slow. There's no information on what to do in the area, and no-one gives you a tour of the hostel on arrival or even explains their facilities (they have a really nice hammock area and a roof terrace). The rooms are small and cramped,... More

This is a beautiful hostel with a great location but ruined by the unhelpful staff. We booked all our tours through another hostel as the staff were unable to give us any useful information. I asked for a map of medellin and was told they had none and to go to a hostel around the corner to get one. I... More

This place is fine if you are a young backpacker wanting to experience Medellin's nightlife. The people were all very helpful, but I was in a shared 6 bed dorm which was cramped with no room to keep your belongings. On top of that, one of the beds was occupied by two girls who were messy and noisy. I don't... More

Had a great time at this hostel. The location is perfect, near parque lleras so plenty of fabulous restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs nearby. Really safe area to walk around and very nice boutique style shops. The hostel itself had some great spaces to chill or drink, hammocks, a tiny pool, movie room and kitchen. I was in a dorm... More

I stayed at this hostel for 4 nights in a private double/ensuite/balcony. Room was nice and having door to balcony allowed air to freshen and cool room. Dana at reception was very helpful and professional. Hostel is mainly young party backpackers so expect lots of noise and loss of sleep.

I loved this hostel. Great food. Always good people coming thru and the location is super. In walking distance of everything you need to get to and the rooms and bathrooms are clean. Always lots of young social people around to make friends and the chill spaces are amazing!

The facility is generally nice. Having hammocks and a rooftop to chill on in nice. Also having a restaurant in the hostel is awesome as well. But that's it for positives from me. The staff was not helpful. The cleaning staff was unfriendly and would barge into rooms early in the morning before people woke up to change the garbages... More

I arrived to Casa Kiwi with another traveler and we were placed in separate rooms. I was on the second floor dorm, "Azalea". The room had three bunks, secure lockers and a nice balcony. There is plenty of room to relax and socialize at this hostel: the rooftop patio, the restaurant patio or the super up cinema room with every... More
