I stayed here for one night. At first it seemed ok. The beds are hard and old, but that's nothing new. Untill I woke up at 5 AM because of a terible itch on my legs. At first i thought it were muskito's, but that was almost impossible since i sprayed with DEET and was sleeping under the sheets. Then... More

It's a good one. We had a big room with bathroom and a huge shower. They even had towels for us. Nice and beautiful place around. El Poblado is the best location for a stay in Medellin. Actually it is already the most expensive part of Medellin. Black Sheep, Pit Stop and Grand Hostal are right in the neighborhood but... More

Stay away from Hostel Casa Blanca! In our 9 months traveling throughout South America it was the worst hostel experience we have had! We were referred to this place when the hostel we originally wanted to go to - The Grand Hostel Medellin, which is right around the corner, was booked. We are traveling with two small children, so we... More

I came here based on the recommendation of some people I had met earlier on in my trip but I was very disappointed by my short stay here. I got a private room since I was sick and it was overpriced (compared to the hostel I ended up moving to). The bed sloped significantly towards the center and was pretty... More

Great little place, has a very unobtrusive vibe, kitchen facilities, hot shower, good internet and is safe. Basic but decent, good value. No food available here, but a lovely little panaderia across the street, a small shop a minute or 2 away and a big supermarket 5 mins walk away which closes at 9 except on Sunday when it closes...

It is my third time in this place and each time I find it bigger and better. They have improved the place, the service, and all the activities. We even have a nice barbecue with other guest and really enjoy it. It is very close to train station and all the main attractive and turistic places you want to visit.

Room was small but clean. Bed was ok (double room). Staff was friendly and the structure is cute and clean. There were not a lot of people when we stayed there so it was quiet. Kitchen is big, wifi works, ping pong table... well i would recommand it.

In our four months travelling through Central and South America, this is the most dreadful hostel me and my boyfriend have stayed in. It actually has nearly ruined our visit to Medellin. I write this in our tiny box room with paper thin walls, while the management, owners and seemingly permanent lodgers, who have captured the main common area directly... More
