I spent about a week here at Casa Kiwi. The staff are great. The hostel has lots of places to chill and relax. Much bigger inside than I expected. Kitchen is loaded with everything you need to make a big meal. The location is the most ideal aspect of this hostel. It is in the heart of where backpackers want...

Casa Kiwi is a very clean and comfortable hostel with great amenities. Very organized. It is in the Poblado district which feels very safe and really close to great bars and restaurants (although this is the more expensive area of town). The hostel has a fully equipped kitchen, cinema room (with Netflix), small bar, really cool roof chill area with...

My partner and I stayed in a private room for 3 nights and loved it. The room was spacious, clean and had its own little balcony. The hostel attracts friendly travelers but isn't crazy partying - generally people walk 3 minutes to one of the crazier hostels (allows for a good night sleep if your not in the mood). Perfect...

Nice vibe, many people but I had a feeling of being in very commercial place. I think that some of the places recommended in Lonely Planet feel so sure about their position that forget what's The most important. In my option workers should be a background for The Guests- here in few moments i had a different feeling. It's nice...

Nice hostel, good bar area, tiny swimming pool haha I was expecting a proper pool with how it was described! Big enough hostel to meet people and be social or have your own space. Depending where you are staying, it may be a bit loud with the music sometimes but also they're good with turning off the music at a...

This is clearly the best hostels I have been to in a while!! I stayed there for a week, I met new friends within the people staying there and even the staff. The pool table is a really nice place to gather and meet people !

One of my favourite hostels on my trip, so many good memories. Not the most "party" hostel in its area but very lively. The staff here were so nice. I thoroughly enjoyed myself here, rooftop bar where you can mingle and make new friends. You can organise loads of great tours from the reception. If I ever go back to...

This hostel is a little expensive, but it has a TV-room, a bar, several lounge-areas, really great room standards, and the staff is great. It is also situated perfectly in the Poblado-area. The Poblado area is Medellins biggest party scene, but since the hostel is on the outskirts (though well within walking distance), you won't notice that fact if you...

Thanks Daniel! Your comment made my day. So glad you enjoyed your stay! "Petty review(s) of the staff...maybe some people can't hang." Right?? Too funny. Maybe they were referring to some employees from back in the day. Who knows. Either way, I'm glad you were well taken care of, that's the idea. Happy travels!
