We stayed an geohostel after having had problems with our other hostel in Medellin (Casa Kiwi). Geohostel is very clean and modern with the best bathroom facilities I've seen in South America! They also have fans in the rooms, which I haven't seen in projekt Medellin hostels but which can be nice on hot days! The staff is really friendly,... More

One of my best hostel experiences! It was clean, my ensuite room with a double bed was large and kept clean everyday with white sheets. Only downside may be that the window has gaps so it gets bright really early and you can hear the sounds from the outside street. Nevertheless, it never gets super loud as it is not... More

The female receptionist needs to rethink her career as she is not a people person at all and her attitude is god awful. The rest of the staff are nice enough but not the most engaging so there is absolutely not atmosphere in the hostel. The cleaners are so lovely and are cleaning all the time so the place is... More

We stayed 2 nights in Geo Hostel. The location is exceptional! My husband and I had a private room with an en suite bathroom. We stayed in room 4 and the windows open out onto the street - it's wonderful. There is not a/c but our room had a fan and that was sufficient. The room was very clean and... More

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
