I stayed in a private room which was very nice and big. Great atmosphere and very close to metro and places for food and drinks.

Great hostel. Very clean almost like a hotel. Very accommodating staff. We were a group of 3 and we booked a dorm and were upgraded to a private room for the same price. Thank you! Would definitely recommend.

The hostel was awesome! They have been around for a long time and can point you towards some great activities. It is a short walk to poblado and 5 minutes on the metro to downtown. The rooms were clean and there was a lot of areas to chill and socialize. The hostel has a great vibe that will not make you want to leave Medellin!

If you want to learn español Yadi is an absolute gem. The hostel is located away from the 'happenin' square but close enough if you don't mind a walk. If you want to be in the middle of the chaos, this is not the place for you. The staff do an excellent job to maintain the cleanliness, generally the other guests were to blame for the dirty dishes or bathrooms. The 4 & 6 bunk rooms have excellent windows creating a light, appealing environment. BYO lock. Relaxing outdoor areas are bonito!

The bathroom in the 10 bed is small but good to have. No locks on the door :( People don't clean up in the kitchen but the staff are good to tidy up after them! Tours etc can be arranged easily. Breakfast would be a bonus for the money. Free tea and coffee is nice. Location is good and you get a good sleep :) Great outside space to socialise and chill out.

Private en suite was reasonably priced and the shower was warm (certainly when avoiding the morning rush) -a novelty for colombia! Staff were very helpful and friendly, even helping with tours not directly on their books. Beer fridge was a handy addition with supermarkets also close by. Only downside is most of the communal / social areas are outside (which would usually be great given it was hot and sunny whilst we were there) however that also means full of smokers.

Decent hostel, easy to meet people, great staff and good facilities. Feels a bit dated now (usually doesn't bother me but when competing with Casa Kiwi it needs a revamp). Lockers are in the corridor but there's not enough, room was open so couldn't lock my stuff away. Rooms absolutely need fans/ AC, I was way to hot. It's a little away from the main "party" area, so need to walk/ taxi when going out in the evening. It is close to the metro. Hard to know you're there as there's no sign.

By far the worst smelly hostel room I have ever stayed at. Bad service, far from pueblo, would not stay there again

SUCH a great hostel! Amazing community, good location (close enough to the bars/clubs for easy walking access, but far enough away that it's not hella loud every night). The hostel will help you book great outings within and outside of Medellin. Highly recommend taking the Guatape tour. Well-stocked kitchen for cooking if you're into that (i.e., if you need a reprieve from the not-so-healthy [but oh so delicious] arepas around the corner from the hostel). Stay here! You won't regret it.
