Stayed at GeoHostel a couple of times in 2013 in Medellin. Good location in EL Poblado neighborhood. Friendly staff and very clean. Lots of fun bars and places to eat close by. It is a hostel so nothing luxurious, and while the rooms are not small, lack of windows to the outside make them slightly claustrophobic. However, you'll be out... More

Stayed at Geo for 2/3 day stint. Very clean and neat and in the El Poblado area so very safe and central to restaurants and bars. I'm usually a business traveller so in terms of cleanliness and presentation it was perfectly fine for my first hostel experience. The staff are also fabulous and helpful and there is a good wifi...

While Alex, Katya and Ricardo were helpful and informative, the design of the hostel is poor. Any noise will be heard throughout the entire place. The 7am construction banging next door made it impossible to 'sleep in'. The hostel is, however, ideally placed in a safe and delightful tourist area. Take good earplugs and your stay will be awesome!

Geo Hostel was definitely a sigh of relief when we arrived. We spent a couple of nights at PitStop hostel in Medellin earlier and really hated it, so it was great to go somewhere that was new, clean and where the staff were super friendly and nice. Right from when we first arrived Juan was great, helped us get our... More

Ive been here for about a week and booked for another 10 days to conclude my trip. This seems like an hotel for an hostel price. The stay is super friendly and the place stays spotless. The breakfast is uninspiring but that is the only down fall for this establishment. Juan and Ricardo have been great in telling what to... More

This place over promised and under delivered which is a huge no no in the service industry. The roof top jacuzzi was broken yet when we showed up at their door they listed it as a selling point. They didn't have any hot water, the walls are thin and the breakfast was bread. Everything seemed new and was clean and... More

I was staying in Medellin for two weeks and made a reservation with Geo Hostel, including a receipt of a confirmation email from them. However, when I showed up from the airport they didn't have my reservation. The guy at the front desk pulled up our email exchange confirming my 2-week reservation on his computer but indicated that "someone must... More

This hostel is basically new. Offers wonderful facilities. Clean bathrooms on every floor. Good space to hang out on the terrace overlooking the city. Great location, less than 10 minutes away from the subway station. Located in the wonderful part of Medelling. Close to many good restaurants. English speaking staff was of great help when we tried to rent a... More
