I booked a 4-bedroom dorm and they put on a 6-bedroom. Messy. The 6 bed-dorm was very tiny and it was difficult to move around it. Good lockers size, though. Staff was very helpful.
Really clean and comfortable hostel. I could work here, party here, sleep here.All round all boxes checked. A bit far from the station ,but close to parque lleras. Staff are nice, however they generally shove the tourist book in front of you rather than explain how to do medellin a bit cheaper, but I suppose it is a boutique hostel in an upscale area. Stay here and do some research as to how to get around Medellin, as the city sights are further afield and organized tours are rip offs.
Party hostel! But the cleanest one I've ever been to, with amazing staff (they phoned hospitals for hours for me to help me get my yellow fever vaccine) and a great breakfast that more than makes up for the price of the stay.
Very well located hostel, great atmosphere and staff!!
Hostel withthe most potential, but somehow the atnmosphere is not cool. Bar never kicks it and the beer is always warm..
The place is really near to el parque Lleras, the rooms was clean, the staff was really kind and helpfully!
awesome and clean hostel with great atmosphere!
While backpacking in Colombia with a friend, this has been a nice and friendly hostel. Only bad point : breakfast was quite terrible, sometimes it's not even possible to get a coffee, but there are nice alternatives for breakfast in the street and it is very well located. I liked it !
Very clean, extremely helpful staff, fun bar at night, great wifi, really fun hostel-hosted activities, amazing location (though about 15 blocks from the metro but totally worth it for the cute neighborhood)
Lovely beds, chilled atmosphere, amazing showers and great happy hour cocktails! Breakfast was a bit dodgy, insanely salty eggs served by the female staff who were pretty irate in the mornings... Other than slightly useless staff (apart from the guy, don't know his name sadly) we enjoyed our stay :)
Great atmosphere, bar and recreational area. Good free breakfast too. One negative is the 25,000 charge for a lost key card which seems excessive!
If you're looking for a good place in Medellin, in the best zone possible, don't think further. This hostel it's absolutely incredible, good vibe, few steps from the main street with a lot of bars and restaurants close. It's funny to see the reaction of foreings passing by the street looking at the hostel, you could actually read their thoughts "damn, why i didn't pick up this place?"
Nicest hostel in South America for facilities and cleanliness. Great breakfast. Atmosphere is lacking a little however.
I had a fantastic stay in this hostel. The girl's 6 bed dorm is one of the best I stayed in! Huge bathroom, lovely showers and comfy beds. Safe storage as well. The hostel is located in a great part of town, lots of fun people about and the staff were super helpful.
Solid Hostel, clean decent breaky staff were relatively helpful when asked. Would recommend.
Great staff:) the Guy from the Night Shift even could speak good portuguese:)

Its alright, nothing special. Staff we're helpful and friendly. It just feels like a hostel with a confused identity, but perhaps that is why they stuck the word Boutique infront of it.
Clean, comfortable, great location, fantastic bar, free barbie on Monday and excellent staff. Highly recommended!
Happy Buddha is definitely one of the cleanest, most up-to-date hostels we've ever stayed at. It has a great atmosphere, great breakfast, and is an excellent value for money. It is located in the charming El Poblado neighborhood, but is a bit of a walk/metro ride to any notable sites.
