staff were lovely and very helpful, leant me a padlock for their locker, got up early at 4.30 in the morning to call me cab, nice area and easy to get downtown and to the bars and restaurants. However couldn't get a hot shower while i was there, only cold....

Feels like home. Clean Kitchen, amazing staff, free coffee, a beautiful and helpful owner, so closed to the huge supermarket, clean, nice!


A clean and modern hostel not too far from Gringolandia, but away from the noise. Convenient location next to a metro station. The place in itself has nothing special. It is a little expensive in my opinion, but still a very decent place to stay. The owner lady is friendly and helpful. No lockers in my dorm.


This place kicked ass. The people are terrific. Lucas is my favorite dog.

Really nice manager, beautiful neighborhood. The water pipes are noisy so you wake up when someone takes an early shower and the electrical shower in our room did not heat water properly.

Pros: close to metro, Safe neighborhood, free coffee, helpful owner, nice common areas, big kitchen. There is a dog. The wifi is fast. Cons: lockers are only located in one room and are limited (in addition the lock I have been traveling with did not fit). Only one shower and toilet upstairs and it is very antiquated and the shower knob falls off when you turn it on. I was never able to figure out how to get hot water. Overall, the hostel is pretty good for the money.


Really peaceful hostel just halfway between the Metro station and the Poblado Zona Rosa. Lucy is an exceptionally helpful and friendly host - a place to enjoy and rest in, while still having access to all that Medillin has to offer. Cannot recommend more highly.
