Pluses: Front desk staff: Helpful & friendly. They have 3 sweetheart Labrador dogs. A major plus if you like dogs. The pool is clean but not heated. It was still comfortable for lap swimming, though only about 11 meters long. Cons: Smoke is everywhere. While not allowed indoors, guests and staff alike are commonly smoking in the doorway or outside... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and met lots of great people. If you want to party in Medellin with fun people, this is the place for you. Don't try and sleep until 12 though as the music is on in the bar.

We were here between christmas and NYE. It is a nice hostel with a good atmosphere. Nevertheless the most people are young and in the party mood. The bar closes at 12 and it is quiet around 12/1 a clock but people do come home from partying till 7 in the morning. If you want to go party (with all... More

I've stayed at a lot of hostels, and this one is up there with the best. While the dorms were pretty standard, the rest of the facilities made staying there a lot of fun. The TV room had hundred of movies, sports channels and comfy sofas. The garden has volleyball, basketball, football, ping pong and a swimming pool. At the... More

Pretty much the same price as everything else in the area accept you have eggs and toast in the morning that you can cook yourself - epic! Our dorm was bug and spacious and was cleaned everyday which is rare for a hostel! It has a bar but we couldn't hear any noise from our room. There is a nice... More

Although the common facilities were good (a bit outdated perhaps), especially the bar, our rooms (ground floor, next to the reception) was not. There were a lot of bugs in our beds and dogs were allowed in the rooms. The hygienic standard was quite low. Breakfast is provided, but is not substantial; if you are lucky you can have some...

The Pit Stop is located in a great part of Medellin near parks, bars, malls, and scenic walkways. The Poblado neighborhood is very clean and attractive. This hostel offers a great space to relax and make friends. Not so much of a party hostel as some nearby, but it definitely has a cool vibe. There are lots of spaces for... More

First of all the ladies at the reception were extremely helpful in getting our things done. There is secured parking and one of the few budget accommodations which allow pets. The location of the hostel is really great. There are several parks just outside the hostel, the zone rosa as well as a huge Exito, Home Center and several shopping... More

Even though the location is great and the staff was super friendly and nice, the rooms that were offered are horrible - small, no window, broken bed and unreasonable pricing. Not recommeded at all (or make sure in advance that you get a good room).
