hostel antiguo, great hostel, one fast computer to use, big tv screen, location to the museums and historical areas is not bad, it just the surrounding. prostitutes, drug addicts, shady people, staff is great, owner knows the area, no breakfast though, but you need to check out this part of Medellin, if you stay only in El Poblado, , that's not visiting Medellin.
Nicest hostel I've ever stayed. Definitely recommend staying here.
One of the most memorable hostels I've stayed at in 9 months traveling. Extremely comfortable, the nicest staff. The place is spotless clean, charming, it has a vibe about it… You just want to hang out there. It's not the safest area, so you'll want to rely on taxis at night. Other than that, it's close enough to the metro. Not a party place whatsoever.
I suggest you only stay here if you speak Spanish. It's a really nice hostel, but in an area that is bad at night. I was the only one there, probably because of where it is located. Not bad if you want a break from people, but not good if you want to socialize. The neighborhood is loud at night. It's a really cozy and clean place.
if there was a better than excellent review about the staff and the hostel i would put it. the kitchen was amazing the hostel itself was high class and more of a hotel at hostel prices, and the staff were phenominal. unfortunately i came down with a sinus infection before i got there and the owner was so helpful and couldnt do enough to help, one night i was in so much pain i had to go to the hospital one of the ladies who works there husband drove me there and they all made sure i was ok.
