Security & Location - It's in Poblado Area. Can't get you better. Staff - Very Helpful and Knowledgeable about things to do there. They even arrange trips for you. They can also play pool with you when you're the only one left awake and not partying. Atmosphere - Chill. Cleanliness - Taking a dump here was as convenient as taking a dump in my hotel in Bogota. Value for Money - Worth it. Facilities - Pool, Roof Top, Hammocks, Pool Table, Restaurant, Kitchen, Theatre Room, Bar, Countless Plug

Great location, right in the heart of everything, but still quiet. Onsite bar with good prices. Bunks were very wobbly and needs more lockers in dorm.

I loved the Hostel!!! The room was very comfortable and had several lockers. Location, awesome! Safe place, close to several bars, pubs, restaurants, malls, supermarkets and anything else you can think off. Staff, very nice and helpful. But it would be better if they explain how the hostel works: what services are available, what can you find in each floor, what free activities they offer, etc. The atmosphere is great. The common room makes it really easy to meet people.

The location is perfect, right in the best part of el Poblado. The place itself is nice and clean and has a good kitchen. The staff is alright. They have good computers and a nice chill area. Its a partyhostel but not too much, you can still sleep, theres not too mcuh noise upstairs.

Amazing location and price. Just a couple of blocks off Parque Lleras and the social scene of the city!

Comfortable place to stay, showers were good, easy to meet other back packers and food and beer was cheap. Claude to metro and decent nightlife. Only enough lockable draws for half the people in the room but bags were safe while I was there. Had a great time in casa kiwi and a great time in medellin!

Hola Frank. Sorry about the lack of lockers in your room while you were with us, and thanks for bringing that to my attention. We're currently working to remedy that situation. I'm glad you had a great time in Casa Kiwi and Medellin!

Great location. Minutes from Parque Lleras. Very safe. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Beatriz was the best! They do not let guests in so that is a REAL downfall. And they do keep to that and are very strict. If you are looking to meet a hot local girl, she will not be hanging out with you in this hostel. Happy Buddha lets you bring in guests for a fee. The pool table here is a nice touch and they updated their kitchen. This is my 2nd time here. It is a great hostel to meet people. Salud!

Not as nice as happy budda but I guess you get what you pay for. Overall a nice place with its own resturaunt and cheaper beer than other hostels, too few bathrooms upstairs just two toilet/showers for something like 7 dorms

Had a great stay here! Arrived early and the staff were very welcoming. Good wifi. Good kitchen. Supermarket right over the corner. nice safe area. Good common areas easy to meet folk get a group and head to the park and nearby bars for party. Shower was hot toilets always flushed rooftop terrace and pool was excellent to relax after a big night. Good kfc up on the main road tried them all over the world and this is in the top 3. watch out 2 nights can easily turn into 6. Enjoy your stay!

Relaxed vibe, nice staff, and accomodations are great. One, major complaint though: I made a friend on Tinder and we wanted to play pool and hang out in the hostel but she was stopped by the front desk. Apparently, you're not allowed to bring in guests. Ridiculous.
