I stayed here end of July 2012. Been meaning to write this review for a long time. I stayed here for 4 nights with a friend and we had a great time. The staff were extremely help, the guests were also great (although that's not in the hostels control I guess). They offered dance lessons, a barbeque, they had a really fantastic guide book which they'd made themselves of the local area which showed you exactly how to get to all of the sights around Medellin.
Fast internet, comfortable. Very popular hostel - we stayed there for 3 nights and forgot to book a fourth night - it was full by the fourth night. We spoke to Spyro (the owner - great guy) and he really tried to help us out - in the end he let us sleep in the lounge for a reduced rate as he could see we really didn't want to leave his hostel. I hope to visit here again soon - also Medellin is probably one of my favourite cities I visited in South America in the whole 6 months I travelled around it - and this hostel and city really stood out above the rest.
Tip: the first time you visit - get a taxi or bus as arriving there the first time can be slightly confusing
