I stayed here a few nights in February and loved the atmosphere! There is a nice garden where you can chill-out. Also the staff are helpful.And there is a kitchen to cook. The area is safe, also at night.

Everyone looks for something different in a hostel, and obviously this place was not a hit for our family of four. The place is dirty, especially the kitchen and bathrooms. They were not cleaned over the weekend. The hostel is located on a quiet street, but this is nullified by partying guests and staff. The owner tried to charge us... More

This hostel ties with the Circus in Berlin as the best hostel I've ever stayed at. Tarazzo spiral staircase! Excellent kitchen! Very cool staff! Friendly travelers! Nice location! Beautiful chill zones! WiFi! Markets, ATMs and restaurants right outside! Great beds! My plan was to spend a night in Medellin. Because of this hostel, I stayed 6 nights. Pacho, Duvan, Katie,...

I stayed here for 4 nights after booking last minute. This hostel is in a lovely quiet neighbourhood and is a great alternative from hostels in El Poblado if you are looking to chill out rather than party. The staff are super friendly and helpful and all the people I met in this hostel were also really friendly and polite.... More

What a wonderful stay! The staff is very inviting and extremely helpful. We stayed here a few nights and enkoyed every one of them. Dorms and private rooms available in a great location. The staff takes the cake in their willingness to be of service in so many ways.

We've been travelling for a while and this is one of the nicest hostels we've been to for the price. The staff are really friendly and the facilities are pretty good. Spacious kitchen, a hot shower (rare in some parts of the world) and our private room was comfortable and clean. The only minor quibble is that the acoustics and... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and had a great stay. We had a private room on the grund floor next to the garden. All the walls are pretty thin so it can be noisy. Allso because the atmosphere amongst each other is great, you'll probably end up sitting in the garden untill late. If you're not, than the noise... More

Stayed here over a Friday and Saturday and really enjoyed my stay! The overall look of the hostel is really nice and trendy. It has a pool table and ping pong table which is good during the day and evening. Breakfast consists of nice coffee and scramble eggs with bread, pretty good! The bathrooms are really nice with good showers... More

We booked a two night stay in a private room here online but when we arrived we were informed they only had availability for the first night. That type of thing can happen sometimes and the front desk clerk was very apologetic and offered to help us find a different hostel for the next night. He also spoke excellent english... More

This Buddhist run hostel is one of the best places I've stayed in South America. Apart from the location (a little out of the way), there really isn't anything negative to say. Staff were super helpful, spacious rooms and showers were roasting. They have delicious local beers on draught that you pour yourself and simply log in a notebook at... More
