with a reputation as a party hostel, surprisingly great facilities! Kind staff, and the included omelette bar is delicious.

The facilities are the highlight of this hostel. People from el Poblado are coming to the bar each night to hang out. Perfect for backpackers.

The descriptions are very accurate. The hostel is a party hostel, people from other hostels typically come here around 9pm to mix, mingle, and drink before heading out to the bars and clubs. The bar at the hostel closes around 1am, so if you plan on staying in, I would suggest getting a room away from the bar. The staff was excellent! Very helpful with suggesting places to visit, eat & drink. Breakfast is served every morning from 8-10 am (they make great omelettes)! Finally, Lock your lockers

Cool place with a decent bar n pool tables. Top floor gets a bit stuffy when the sun is out. I would have given it a better rating but during our stay the cops raided the place and searched everyones rooms with a sniffer dog which spooked a lot of people... I mean this is suppose to be a party hostel and this is Colombia. You would think they would do a better job of protecting their customers.

If you like a party hostel this is the place, but if you like a place to rest, u should look for another place

Nice place to stay in Medellin. Close to some great bars and restaurants so you can't go wrong. The bar at the hostel is nice but constantly blasting loud American music at any time of the day so it's not really a great place to chill during the afternoon but more fun at night. The washrooms are nice and personal. The 8 bed room is so extremely hot and stuffy it was hard to sleep there. It's a room that SHOULD be for 6 people but they've squished in 8 to make more money - not great.

Reception desk people were unfriendly. Though we arrived early and got offered free breakfast, check in is at 3pm (which i think is very late). Location is up the hill, quiet exhausting always to walk. Breakfast was good but limited (one omelet and one slice of bread). The bar in the front is a nice chilling area but at night this hostel turns into a party hostel. Rooms were very clean and bathrooms were very nice. Mixed review.

Bathrooms had hair all over. Shaved facial hair covering the sink area. Bedroom was incredibly stuffy.

I stayed in the 6 bed ensuite girls dorm - clean, spacious, good lockers and 2 showers between 6. Really friendly hostel, good wifi, easy to book trips and nice staff. Can be noisy at night so if you like your sleep take ear plugs.
