The Geo Hostal is a super contemporary new place with very sweet staff. We had a private room that was comfortable, clean and tidy. The breakfast was included which was traditional Colombian delights. Our only complaint was the high level of noise coming from the nearby bars. To be fair it was New Year's Eve. There is no doubt that... More

I went with my parents to this for the Colombia's fashion week. We couldnt use the pool but they offered when we booked. People who work there doesnt seem to be that much friendly. Specially the woman who does the breakfast and the front desk guys. Once when we came from the street our window was opened like someone tried... More

I stayed at Geo Hostel for a week with a friend. She got sick when we got to Medellin, so it was nice to be in a low-key hostel. If you're looking for a party or to meet other travelers, I wouldn't recommend this hostel for that. We stayed in two different dorm rooms. The beds and pillows were comfortable... More

This was one of our favorite places we stayed in Colombia. The hostel is in a nice location close to many shops and restaurants. There is also a bank just a block away. We stayed in room 3 which is a private ensuite double. The bed wasn't very comfortable but was absolutely tolerable. The room did not have AC, but... More

I stayed at Geo Hostel in late May and early June, and I have to say this is one of the best hostels I've visited. Geo Hostel is located in the heart of El Poblado -- the best spot in Medellin. The hostel has a posh look and feel to it. It seems more like a hotel than a hostel,... More

I stayed in the Geo Hostel in March and in april 2014. Excellent!!! 100% in all areas!! The management do an excellent job keeping a balance between a place to relax and a place where you can have some fun if you want, as long as you are respectful and considered to others. Others hostels go one way to much,... More

It's really hard to choose a hostel in Medellín because there are so many seemingly-good options. I stayed here seven nights and loved the place. Medellín is a big city and has lots to do, and so it's natural to want to stay a bit longer than some other places, and this hostel is super comfortable, so it makes you... More

Great value for money and breakfast even included! If I am going to be really picky, just 3 things that... More

The hostel itself is clean and I can't fault it at all. The staff though are what made it special. They were extremely helpful and went out of their way to assist in all of my queries that I had for transport, places to visit etc. In addition a great location, we were after something close to everything but not...

If you want to be in the middle of the Pablado action, close to parque Lleras and you want to have a nice, clean, quite, secure hostel where you can relax and have some down time, then I highly recommend GEO Hostel. I stayed at GEO for 8 nights the end of May, first week of June. I was thoroughly... More
