I really have nothing bad to say about this hostel. Its clean, nice quiet neighbourhood within walking distance to the Zona Rosa and Poblado Metro. The staff is super nice and I especially enjoyed the free Salsa lesson. Shame we couldnt be there for the Sunday BBQ because that looked very tempting! Would definitely stay here again.

I stayed one week in arcadia hostel, i chose this hostel because it's one of the cheapest one in medellin and i didn´t regret my choice. First of all the location is perfect, situated near the zona rosa wich is the place where you can find all the good restaurants, bars and disco. It is a 15 minutes walk to... More

Well first of all the room was incredibly small the bathroom as well and the quality of the mattress as well as the pillows, blankets and sheets are old and very wear out. O and almost forgot the plastic wrap around the mattress and the sheets that really... More

Well worth staying in this hostel. The dorm room has everything I look for in a dorm room and more; decent lockers, two plug sockets for each bed, a shelf to put your things on and even a reading light, as well the beds are made from solid wood so there's no noise in the night. Bathrooms in each dorm... More

I stayed en Arcadia around 3 weeks, and i had such a nice stay. I would reccomend it as the best hostel in Medellín, because it is so close to the center, poblado, all the nice shops, but still it is in a calm área :) the thing i like most about arcadia is that there is space for every... More

“All you can have” pancakes' breakfast, little shelf and personal light right next to my bed, two spots to plug in electric devices as well (very practical, I reckon), good location (very close to Lleras park), super nice staff, owner who is always ready and willing to help his guests any way possible to enjoy their time to the hostel...

My partner and I just had a three night stay at Hostel Arcadia in a private room. We found that the hostel had a pleasant and friendly atmosphere, great and helpful staff and good communal areas. The kitchen was functional and clean and had good free amenities like available butter, big fridge and basically open 24 hours. Above all, the... More

We were met with very friendly staff but had no reservation so our only option was the suite at $110COPS - it was late so we took the room. It was a huge room with a giant bathtub, which would have been great if it had been cleaned sometime in the last year - it was absolutely disgusting, so we... More

Although this hostel has great potential, its simply not being used to its maximum. We firstly stayed in the 12 bed dorm. This is literally the owners garage, with three triple bunks squeezed in. Its crowded and most people ended up sleeping with their large bags on their bunk as there simply is no room anywhere for their belongings. There... More

Hi there, thanks for your response, its Spyros. As I have already said Hades (Hell) the 12 bed dorm is one of the most popular dorms in Medellin and this is because it's really cheap. Now we are trying our best to make it as comfy as possible. For more space to put your bags we have already installed small... More
