- Rooms are okay, but very loud - Bathroom has not been cleaned during our stay (4 nights) - The staff made the impression of not caring about their guests and not knowing basic things (e.g. we were told that the reception was opened for 24 hours - fortunately someone else told us to take the key with us, because...

Is it a hostel? Is it a boarding house? Is it a family house? We are not quite sure what category to put this property in. One thing for sure...it is a very "laid back" place, very very casual. Kind of a funny contrast to their immediate hostel neighbor down the street, "The black sheep", which if anything seems a... More

My friend and I stayed two nights at Hostel Casa Blanca. We purchased the private double room which proved to be secure and affordable. The hostel staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. The beds were not the most comfortable, and for some reason they would blast music in the lobby early in the morning until late... More

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...
