Absolutely happy with the place. We were planning to stay one night and ended up staying 3. Never been to such a comfortable hostel. Well done!
Location is in the city - excellent - but the area can be a bit sketchy after dark. The atmosphere is absolutely quiet... but peaceful :) everything else, perfect! Beautiful clean hostel.
The most cultured and sophisticated hostel I have ever been in. There is a corking fee to bring in your own liquor but they have their own bar, so it's cool but not too much of a party. We had the hostel to ourselves one day and felt like kings. There is even a fondue set in the kitchen! Try not to show up at night because the surroundings seem rough at first, but we had no problems going out there at night with minimal valuables. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Medellin.
very nice hostal very clean and everything is new! great wifi!
Loved the design and feel of the place inside. Felt like I was at home and the bathroom was really clean. The only pitfall is the location with lots of homeless people and junkies. I didn't feel safe walking around the area. As females tourists we attracted a lot of unwanted attraction and taxi drivers locked the doors and windows as we approached the area.
Great hostel. A little sanctuary in the middle of the city. From the Airport: Outside the terminal turn right and head to the end of the taxi rank to find signs for the bus service or the white buses themselves. They head all the way to Hotel Nutibara which is then 4 blocks from the hostel. From the City Center: Head to the street behind Hotel Nutibara where the buses leave approx. every 15mins starting from 3:30am with the last bus service leaving at 9pm and take about 50mins to and from.
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.
