The lady who runs the hostel is lovely. The location is good as you're very close to the metro and to a big supermarket. The house is nice, with a lovely garden and a nice kitchen. The dormitory is OK, very dark though as there are no windows. It's a nice place during the day, however I couldn't sleep because of the little dog constantly barking at anyone coming in, even late at night, and also because guests are not given any keys - you need to ring the bell, which is super loud. Too noisy.


Incredibly nice staff, always welcome to help and talk.


Great location in a quiet, residential part of the neighbourhood. A short walk to the Poblado metro station and all the restaurants, bars, and nightlife of Poblado. The hostel itself had a great atmosphere - really feels like a big home with a beautiful outdoor patio area for relaxing and socializing.

Well situated hostel, not far from subway station in El Poblado area. Welcoming lady. Relaxing garden place. Wi fi is good. Place feeling a bit old, dorm upstairs dark without locker. No breakfast. Good for short stays.


Very nice staff and good, central location. There was no air conditioning (as to be expected) but would've been nice to be able to open the window in our room. Mattresses were quite hard so I'm glad we only had two nights in that regard. I also got attacked by mosquitos in the outside lounge at the hostel. It sounds like I'm complaining but it really was a decent stay for a good price. Best of all were the staff and the dog :)


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....
