Great terrace to relax or chill with friends. Located in a safe area very accessible to various activities. The only down point was that the room was very hot & the fan was not working well, making it difficult to sleep.

We had a room to the staircase so it was really noisy and stuffy, the only window was also to the staircase and reception! So when we came in the room at the end of the day it was always stinky and stuffy because you can't leave the window open, we had only a fan but it didn't help and leave the window open over the night was impossible because of the noise!!The bed was also not so clean...a lot of hair from the last guest.

The staff is friendly, hostel is modern, rooftop area is nice. Overall it really stood out as one of the better hostels in Medellin.

Great value, more like a hotel if you stay upstairs in the private bathroom rooms. The only negative I can think of is that, with there being so many people, the kitchen is often quite packed. If you're into eating out though, you won't need it!

Our experience from staying at Geo hostel have been almost entirely satisfactory! The staff was diligent, competent and service-minded, providing a level of service that left very little to be desired. On the one hand, its location was well removed from the Medellin city centre, but on the other hand this location put it within striking distance of restaurants, clubs, Metro connections and provisions. Cleanliness was superb! The WiFi, though, proved a bit dodgy at times, as well as the hot water

Great location in the heart of El Poblado. Really enjoyed the top floor of the hostel as you can sneak a pretty great view of the mountains and city lights at night. The room I stayed in was a bit stuffy - maybe an additional fan or vent would help with air circulation. All in all, I would definitely stay here again.

This hostel is nice, but it's a bit overrated in my opinion. The dorm room I was in didn't have air conditioning, even though it's listed in facilities. Also the showers were never really hot, just sort of barely warm. It is pretty chilled out though, and in a great location.

I can't think of a better place to stay in Medellín. Geo is right smack in Poblado, a very nice area near the best restaurants, bars, and clubs. It's a great place to stay with a very warm and inviting staff. I stayed in a private bedroom and still met a lot of friendly people staying in the bunk rooms. Great value and very clean modern design. Highly recommend.

We stayed here when we fancied a break from noisy party hostels and it was perfect. One if not the cleanest hostel i have ever stayed in. Perfect location for restaurants, bars and green leafy streets of Medellin. Low key atmosphere but nice common areas and easy to chat to other guests.

Really nice hostel, breakfast made fresh for you when you we awake before 10am was lovely. Coffee all day and they organise tours for you. Must do their Pablo Escobar tour!!

The hostel is great in terms of location and cleanliness but during our stay it was very quiet and lacked atmosphere. I did not even know about the common space upstairs until a few days after we checked in because it was never shown to us. Some staff were not very approachable. Being in the room near the kitchen made made sleep difficult to sleep due to the noise.

The facilities of the hostel are even better than the photos may suggest. BUT: there was no warm water when we arrived (about 12 PM) and at 8 AM they start to clean making terrible noise while scrubbing the floor in the bathroom. That was definitely a no-go! Do the cleaning after people checked-out!
