The location was perfect for us, close to metro, nice residential area and away from El Poblado. The first night we were in a very small room but after that we were moved to a spacious room with balcony. Great shower with hot water. Lovely friendly, laid-back atmosphere, a reflection of Vince's relaxed character. Great breakfasts. Good-value evening meals enjoyed...

Vincent, the owner, offers a friendly, clean, and quiet place to stay while in Medellín. The location is excellent - right near the Floresta metro station so there is easy access to wherever the Metro goes. It is also an easy walk to San Javier and the Comuna 13 area, Laureles neighborhood, and the Stadium sports complex. We became regulars...

If you are searching for a home and some family feeling off the beaten backpacker-track, look no further! Vincent is an amazing host who managed to create an atmosphere of warmth and a family get-together as I have never experienced it before (not only because of self-made chocolate cake). During your stay I Medellin, this will definitely feel like your...

Private room with easy access to happenings! As an elder solo traveler I felt welcome among the young and when I needed medical care I received direction to a good clinic where I was given needed RX.

I really enjoyed my stay at Yellow House; I stayed there about 7 nights and enjoyed a private ensuite room for most of it. I have stayed in el poblado previously so already got the whole party experience those times, and did enjoy it, but that is not what I was looking for this time. The service is great, with...

We were in the Yellow House Hostel for 6 nights and we didn't regret it at all. The owner, Vincent, is very kind. If you wanna get some information about the city or things you can do in surrounding or elsewhere in colombia, he is the right contact person. The hostel by itself is clean and the rooms are well...

My favorite place to stay in Medellin. Great location a couple of blocks from Floresta metro lets you get anywhere in the city quickly. Nice relaxing neighborhood to take leisurely walks and explore life as a local. Always great fun as this hostel attracts a lot of interesting people.

I stayed at the Yellow House two different times for about two weeks each and it was perfect. It's in a chill and safe neighborhood and has a homey feel that's perfect for staying a few days or a week and getting to know other travelers. The hot breakfast is awesome, cool and friendly staff, and two big dogs to...
