I can't speak for the dorms here but we hired a private room and it was well one of the most basic rooms I've had in South America and I've been to every country. For the price you would expect a little more! Issues: - Beds were old and sheets rangy - one plug point in the room and it... More

The worst mattresses in the whole of south America so far. If you want back problems, stay here. Rude male member of staff, so insulting we left as soon as reception opened. They charge more than what we were told, and there are plenty of cheaper MUCH nicer hostels in medellin.

Sunshine Hostel is a perfect place to stay in el Poblado without breaking the bank. The staff id friendly, and the hostel has a comfortable vibe. Internet is good. Kitchen is large. Hang... More
