I stayed for two nights. The young woman who works in the front desk was helpful in answering my questions. They do have warm showers and it's about a 15 minute walk from the nearest metro stop. The front desk plays music late into the night that can be herd from the dorm rooms. Also the shower downstairs seems to have a problem with bugs.

Really did not like this place and changed hostels after one night. Found it to be unclean and the atmosphere and staff not a nice vibe.

Nice area to walk around even at night. Some good eateries in Laureles and the staff, especially Manuela, are hard to beat.

Nice enough hostel although quite run down, in need of a do up especially in bathrooms. Staff were nice & friendly. Really close to main street with restaurants and bars but quite far from the closest metro station so hard to get to other parts of the city.

Like a serene oasis in a quiet area in Medellin away from the hustle and bustle. We loved how chilled and easy the vibe was here with incredibly welcoming and friendly staff. The area is very safe, comfy beds, good wifi, good breakfast. Couldn't have asked for more for the price.

The staff is very friendly. It's a good hostel if you want some quite time, but I wouldn't recommend it if you really want to meet people. Good, clean kitchen. Some nights they play music, which is very loud in the dorms.

Really nice hostel! Not the busiest while I was there, but the staff who work there are some of the nicest I've ever met - shout out to Nelson for a few great nights out!

Barrio es muy tranki. Bathrooms are old & not cleaned as often as many other hostels (multiple times per day, or even @ least once per day). There is also no hand soap in the bathrooms. The 8 person dorm near the front on the second floor has no ventilation, so it gets really smelly, really fast. The courtyard in the middle is cool and the vibe is pretty cool - however, the two nights I was there, people were up talking/drinking/playing guitar/loud music until 3am, which is way too late.

This hostel is very nice and kept very clean. The kitchen and bathrooms are spacious. The beds are very comfortable and breakfast is awesome (eggs and toast or a large portion of cereal) . The only down side is that it is a little far from public transportation.
