BREAKFAST INCLUDED Buddha Hostels, inspiring & innovating. From the success of the Secret Buddha we are pleased to give birth to our new space, the Buddha Hostel Medellin.We have tailored our hostels as unique expressions, to reflect the essence of the green city of eternal spring.The Buddha is a hostel that fuses retro-Asian design with the original Art Deco architecture of a home built in 1953 located in Laureles, the most prestigious residential sector in the heart of Medellin. Located only 5 minutes from downtown, the Stadium, and the Zona Rosa (tourist party area), in front of the Bolivariana University and within walking distance from 70th st & 33rd ave (more traditional party streets), you can walk safely day & night in the realm of a serene green environment.The Buddha Hostel proposes a new concept which unites culture, art, adventure and foremost a place to unwind and relax, paving a natural platform of exchange between visitors and locals. Our 600m home splits in two levels, housing bright and airy dorms and private rooms, a spacious balcony, and a large patio area and garden with koi pond to complete the space.The Buddha Hostel will soon become a cultural home where art exhibitions, independent film and music can be enjoyed by each individual traveller regardless of nationality or age.An original refurbished 1950s massive kitchen is fully stocked with all the toys for all to use. Since food plays a major role for anyone travelling whether it is for need or for love, Buddha Hostels is a shrine to exotic flavours, which you are invited to feast on with our home cooked meals.We also have a front deck to chill as well as giant puffs facing a 42 HD LCD flatscreen with Direct TV 24hr, Playstation 3 and a DVD player with an extensive video library. For our adventure seeking friends if you wish to see Medellin from the sky you can do so in the most natural way there is to fly ; paragliding. Feel like having your feet closer to the Earth but wish to have a bit of a rush, then climb the second largest rock on the planet, horseback ride in la burroteca(horse disco) through the forest hillside of Medellin or Pub Crawl with us. Backpacking is a lifestyle, a journey, an opportunity for self-expression; it is not just about where you go but who you know along the way. Let Buddha Hostels deliver this with Love.

I spent a month in Medellin, the location is great, 10 minute walk to the metro and Estadio area. The owner and other people working here are friendly and chill, the breakfast is great and there is a kitchen for you to cook. A good community all together.

First of all, can I just say what a place of beauty and serenity!! The art that adorns the walls and hallways is inspiring in itself. But when you interact with the employees there, that's where the real beauty of Colombia is exposed. I at first opted for the dorm room in an

"Bring always a lock with you when staying there"
"great place, cheap hostel"
"Pick a room with windows & ventilation, because the 8-person dorm near the front with NO windows smelled like caca after a few hours"
"If you're going for a private double room, try to get one of the ones upstairs."
"The private rooms to the left of the central staircase on the 2nd floor are quieter."
