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

I stayed at this hostel for 2 nights, it was very clean, and the staff were so helpful, booking tours, taxi's and finding out about buses for me etc. the guy also speaks great English, which is a massive help! 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

This hostel is the best one I have been in Colombia. For the price I think the overall experience is very good. Nice rooms, very clean, the staff was always very friendly and the location is very good, is just a few streets from the most popular places in the city.

This hostel is modern, clean, great location but I didn't get a good night's sleep in 3 days and didn't have a warm shower in that time either. First night I got a private room at the front of the hostel but it sounded like the club's and traffic were in my room so I requested moving to a dorm... More

We stayed there in Jan, the place is very clean, fresh looking, bright and airy but lacking a little character. It's in a nice neighbourhood which seemed very safe. The staff were also very friendly and helpful. The only complaint is due to the layout of the building the hostel is very noisy. All rooms are off a central corridor/stairs... More

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
