Hostal is absolutely disgusting and meanly the kitchen (people dont clean or wash dishes after cooking). I saw a rat in the kitchen. Unless you smoke marijuanas we Will not socialize here. This seems to be the main activity. Noisy and dirty place.


very chilled hostel


What a badass place, felt comfortable immediately...a hostel well done. A quick observation, the floor in the bathroom was always wet (not sure why) but maybe some floor mats would solve the problem...It's just a horrible feeling when your feet get wet when you get up to go to bathroom in the middle of the night. Cheers.


Was moved beds, locker for new bed was busted and option behind the front desk wasn't secure. No hot water one morning. Upon check-in, was told the "important" info for the area; a pizza place, a small grocery store, and where to buy cocaine (though as a bonus, the hostel became a bit of a running joke on the tour I went on). One bathroom was basically a puddle the entire time. On the plus side, the decor was nice, bed was comfortable, and outlet/light/curtain for each cot was a good setup.

This is a really nice place to stay! Nice garden with hammocks. Rooms are lovely decorated.


In the "safest" neighborhood in Medellin, but just far enough (5min walk) from Parque Lleras as to actually get a good sleep if wanted. No hot water in largest dorm room bath. Excellent staff, especially Daniel. Comfy beds! Wish there was a more affordable option for 1-person private.


The Bambu hostel was fantastic. Sven and the rest of the staff were welcoming and very helpful. The hostel is located in a great neighborhood with lots of bars and cafes. Stay at Bambu! Woot woot!


The room we stayed in was way too small for the amount of beds (6 or 8) and messy. The yard was nice in theory but full of cigarette buts. Some of the guests were apparently stuck there and high all the time. There are much nicer options in El Poblado!


Nice relaxed hostel. Just make sure you ask for the nice dorm (curtain, light, power)


Super relaxed hostal. They have several arreas to relax, and a nice big garden with hammocks. The hostal is close by all the good bars (just a few minutes walking). The atmosphere in this hostal was really relaxed.. And didn{t want to go.. Could have stayed here for months.. But also wanted to see other parts of Colombia, therefore left the hostal after a week


not recommended at all staff are not nice


Friendly staff. Got upgraded to a tent to try some glamping on the first night when hostel was over booked which was fun. Had a problem with mosquitos in the dorms a night so remember the repellent! Very chilled atmosphere and hostel within close distance to HEAPS of restaurants in the El Poblado region


Beautiful hostel. Dorms had everything you needed; lamo, PowerPoint, small locker and curtains for privacy. Amazing garden area with hammock as, the perfect place to hang out after a day of walking the city! Full equipped kitchen. Super friendly helpful staff. Highly recommend!


BEAUTIFUL hostel!! We loved the location and outdoor area. Close to parque lleras and a train station. Only two showers though, and the 8 bed dorm looks NOTHING like the photos (curtains etc) so we were a little disappointed at that - it was just a simple room with squeaky metal bunks. But other than that, great hostel with nice staff! :)


The beds are great: each one has curtains and an outlet. The yard is nice and has many hammocks. It's a bit of a hike to the metro but it's close enough to to Parque Lleras.
