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.
This is the best hostel I have ever stayed at. Big spacious beds, huge lockers, and a wonderful bathroom (1 for Men, 1 for Women). It's really close to the wonderful Metro system which can take you all over Medellin. It was super clean, the workers taking extra care by mopping the hostel multiple times a day. That being said, it's in the middle of an area that turns bad at night. People have been robbed so take proper precautions.
This is the cleanest, the most comfortable and the best equipped hostel we've seen for the last 10 months of travelling in South America. It definitely has a tranquil character of a boutique hotel with prices of a hostel. It's created with taste and attention to every detail: comfortable beds and the kitchen you want to have at home! Location is central and shows you a more interesting face of Medellin than characterless El Poblado. Use your common sense and you'll be safe.
