Very nice staff, owner, and regular/repeat guests. A comfortable feeling to the place. Some glitches: morning industrial washing machines and nightly fireworks in area made sleeping difficult. (Maybe it was a Christmas month thing, but, in Medellin fireworks sounds a bit ominous.) Language barrier was not a real problem, except for one desk employee who responded to my stating a number of times, in my mediocre Spanish "I don't understand you" with repeating the same things over and over, while the owner stood there oblivious to my frustration. I finally turned to him and asked for a little help, which he gave. Meals were usually fine, except for one one of frozen bread and cold soup. My laundry was lost for a while, but found. The roof in the eating area leaked. The desk staffer forgot to wake me for my airport ride, though luckily I got up without it. My big complaint was that the night time desk man lied to me when he told me that he had no way to reach the owner in an emergency. Clearly, he was instructed to say that, even when I asked about a possibly serious problem (which luckily was not). One short phone call to the owner would have put my mind at ease, but that was not possible. The location was not a problem--taxis were fast and easy to get, though the drivers were uniformly maniacs.
