We were very disappointed in this hostel. We were looking for an alternative for the known party hostels (e.g. Happy buddha) - a hostel with both atmosphere and night rest. We were drawn by the story on the website About the founding story. Unfortunelately we found nothing of the love and creativity as stated in this founding story. Perfectly located... More

We had an amazing time here - right in the heart of Medellin nightlife. The staff were friendly and the top floor has lots of sofas, TV, video console and table tennis to chill out. The cleanest hostel we stayed in across whole of South America. We stayed in a private room but ours was above reception and right on... More

Geo Hostel is great. It's clean, good comfortable beds, in a great location but quiet, isn't a party hostel but it's still easy to meet people. The staff are very friendly. I stayed here twice and will definitely stay again if I return to Medellin. Only minor negative is they need more power outlets.

We stayed in the double suite Saturday-Wednesday. Very nice room and common areas. Clean and safe. Great location. Spotty wifi but avail in the room. Hot water. AC. Negative is the street noise! The windows are glass and don't actually fully close. You can literally hear every single thing on the streets. There is a restaurant/bar across and street and... More

Great hostel! Located super close to all the bars (a bit noisy during the weekend), brand new, very clean. Private rooms have very nice bathroom and AC! Breakfast is included and the staff is very helpful if you want any advice on Medellin. I highly recommend staying here if you come to Medellin.

This is a perfect hostel if you're seeking a quiet, cool place in El Poblado. The front desk personnel all speak English and Spanish. The rooms are quiet, roomy, and hip. We stayed in a private room that overlooked the very trendy Carrera 35. There are great bars and restaurants everywhere around here. Great place to stay.

I had a good stay in this hostel. It is extrememly clean and the staff were lovely. It is right in the middle of Poblado which is an area full of bars and restaurants (which are then obviously priced for tourists) the vegetarian restaurant next door has great food. The metro station is about a 20 minute downhill walk and... More

Would not stay here again if it was free. Expensive neighbourhood, you have to walk several blocks downhill to find anything affordable to eat. The included breakfast yesterday consisted of a slice of wonder read with Bologna, today it was and unidentifiable bread cake thingy with flavourless cheese or butter(impossible to tell what it was) with a hot dog, referred...

This is one of the best hostels I've stayed in during my trip. The location is right in the heart of the Poblado area, walking distance to parque lleras. He hostel itself is very well maintained and clean in all parts. The staff were helpful and kind. The breakfast actually had eggs and toast instead of the standard pancakes. Ping... More
