This place has such a laid back feel. I felt so included and taken care of! View is crazy good and the bathrooms are really clean. This part of the city is really nice and in the center of all kinds of great city life.

Good place. Everyone has been very nice. Doing a Mission trip and we are staying here before going to our next country. Pretty comfy. I liked the environment. First time ever in a hostel. Walking distance to grocery store and mall.

I really enjoyed staying here! Lovely owner, chilled living areas, perfect location. It's everything you're looking for - if it's too meet people or if it's too relax and enjoy Medellin! There a park right across the street where you can burn all the calories from the beer you drink in the evening😄

Very nice hostel, cool atmosphere, amazing staff always organising events, very nice terrace on the rooftop where you can just chill and meet other people while cooking, or participate to the beer pong and flip cup parties. Excellent wifi connection, clean rooms and bathroom. In other words, I highly recommend this place !

The hostel is clean, the beds were comfortable, and there is a very nice rooftop common kitchen and area. Our one complaint would be that it didn't seem as easy to meet fellow travelers here as at other hostels we've stayed in. Note: Fantastic wifi that worked in our rooms and nothing but great experiences with the staff - they...

When we looked it up, the hostel sounded great (Pool, tennis court etc), so when we actually arrived we were quiet dissapointed. Up first: our room was clean, beds were comfortable und everyone had his own locker.There wasnt a lot of space in the room to open your luggage etc and the whole hostel looks a bit run down and...

Stayed with friends in the 10-bed dorm. Huge room with plenty of storage. Lots of windows and luxury bathroom with Power ful and hot shower. Sharing meals with other travelers on the rooftop was a highlight. Restaurant style kitchen made cooking fun. Recommended

A great alternative if you're looking to avoid the backpacker hub that is El Poblado and instead place yourself in a real Medellin neighborhood. You can get a bus to the metro but I walked the distance without trouble. Highlights include it being very inexpensive, warm staff, the awesome and social rooftop with views, sports facilities in the adjacent sports...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are consistently the #1 Medellín hostel on tripadvisor! We are the only hostel in Colombia with a dedicated fiberoptic internet line. 30 megas! We are perfectly located n the geographical center of Medellin. All city attractions within 10-15 minutes! We are equidistant to all of it's major attractions - the antiguo centro historico, the new downtown and one of three party areas (el poblado), comuna 13 (electric stairs, aerial cable cars, and graffiti tour), Laureles (restaurants and bars), Calle 33 and Calle 70 (two authentic Colombia bar and restaurant districts), are all within 5-10 minutes by taxi, or 20 minutes in bus or metro. We provide a great atmosphere and proximity to an amazing sports complex with two huge swimming pools, tennis courts, pickup basketball and soccer, free yoga and aerobics classes and much more. And then there are our famous rooftop dinners where you can easily meet many people and socialize even if you are traveling solo. ... more   less
