It was my second time staying there after 2 years. The first time was quite awesome with cozy dorm and nice environment. This time the room was just too crowded and i could barely sleep at all during the night because it was next to the entrance.Location is fine there are lots of resturants and bars nearby

The staff were friendly and the common areas are nice with decent facilities, but our double room was small and stuffy, the bed hard and covered in a plastic sheet. Unfortunately the kitchen seemed to be messy and dirty all the time, the 'included breakfast' is actually just coffee and a big jug of pancake batter that you have to... More

The only reason i am giving this an average is because the room we had was right next to the kitchen so you would get woken up at 7am every morning and had a massive hole behind the bedhead that had a funky smell. We stayed in another room the first 2 nights and enjoyed them a lot more DO... More

I'll start with the good points - the hostel is a sociable one and we met some great people here. It's In a decent location - you can walk to the main bar area in about 15 minutes but it is an uphill walk back. The negatives - the hostel is so dirty! Our room had barely been cleaned. The... More

This hostel had a great atmosphere! The social area made it easy to just relax and meet people, the dorms are cheap and the staff is extremely friendly! Free pancakes every morning are delicious, the balcony is perfect for socializing at night, and the barbecue every Sunday is a real treat. The place is quiet but close to a lot... More

I have very good memories from my stay in this hostel! I was initially planning to stay in Medellin for only 4 days, but I had such a great time in Arcadia that I ended up being there for more than 2 weeks! Atmosphere is great and it's very easy to meet new people. Oh, and every Sunday they make... More

This hostel is really laid back and it is easy to spend the day hanging around there with the other guests because the common spaces are set up in a way that is really condusive to hanging out / talking to people. It feels like there are always people around. It is also a quick walk to parque lleres as... More

Stayed at Arcadia for a week in a private double room. My stay was very pleasant: -friendly and competent staff -free coffee all day -quiet neighborhood but close (5min walk) to parque lleras -good common area -good bar The only unpleasant thing was that the room was right next to the kitchen and you hear everything (especially in the morning)....
