First of all, we reserved 2 beds in a dormitory via internet and specified that we would arrive late in the evening, and the hostel had confirm this reservation. When we arrived, the guy at the reception tells us that the... 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.

El poblado is like a different town than the rest of Medellin. It's a very nice, wealthy area, so with that comes a higher cost of living. 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

The hostel has a kitchen, so you can cook there, (saving a lot of money), there is a big dining table,... More

Just a 5 minute walk from Poblado metro station the hostel was a decent place for a couple of nights in a 20000 dorm bed. Despite (or maybe because of) the sign saying no ping pong after 11pm or music after 2am we slept well. I never did work out who the owners were but the place was kept clean... More
