Felipe, the host/owner of Hostal Antiguo was super helpful and understanding. He helped us start our short journey in Colombia and continued to do so even from afar. The Hostal is super clean and tidy with a good vibe and tasty coffee. It's conveniently located close to touristic sites and the metro. Highly recommended.

What a find. Hostal Antiguo is all chic, refinement and charm fitted with high-end tech, kitchen and super-friendly employees. Dorms (4, 8 and 12 I think) and private rooms, very secure inside and exquisitely finished. I really didn't want to leave after getting home from a day sightseeing. Located 3/4 blocks behind Plaza Botero it's central for travel on metro... More

We arrived at Medellin Airport from Bogota on October 20th 2015.We took the Airport bus but got off it too early at San Diego Plaza. Better to stay on until it ends at the Nitibara hotel. The bus costs 9000 peseos /passenger (under $4). The approach to Hostal Antigua is not inspiring. The area seems run down but we never... More

What else do you want when traveling to an unknown city? At first I second guessed our decision to come to this hostel as our cab driver couldn't find it and the area is by bars and street walkers. I stayed here in a private room with our own shower with my wife and kids. The room was spotless and... More

Hostal Antiguo was simply perfect. The place is gorgeus, beds are comfortable and most importantly the staff are great. There was a mix up with my reservation and the situation was handled in most efficient and professional manner, i was truly impressed. Highly recommended!

Stayed here for one night, was a great find, hostel is gorgeous and I agree with other reviews that it is almost like a boutique hostel. The decor is gorgeous, high standards of cleanliness. I stayed in the 10 bed dorm (24000 a night) good size, lots of room to move. Each bed has sheets, one pillow and a towel.... More

Hostal Antiguo is by far the best hostel I've done. Clean, spacious, beautifully decorated, well located and quite cheap for the service you get! They provide towels and soap. It looks like a 3 stars hotel but you pay 27000 COP for a dorm of 6. Highly recommend this hostel!

The staff is adorable, the rooms and the entire place is super clean, it is beautiful, the crowd is nice and the kitchen has it all! The neighboorhood is not great but the hostal is very close to the Center's attractions (museum, botanical gardens and so on); if you stay more than 3 days in Medellin, I would advise to... More

Antiguo is the perfect hostel for you if you want to get to know the 'real' Medellin from a very comfortable and cleanly home base. The staff are accommodating and friendly, the rooms and common spaces are well appointed and beautifully designed, it feels like you're in a relaxed boutique hotel. The location is great for exploring the city, walking... More
