The staff were very nice except for this one person. All the other staff were great always busy and cleaned the most I've ever seen. Good job to them. Get more plates in kitchen.... And utensils. Like a spatchula.


Super close to a metro stop which is nice to explore city, and seems to be rare with Medellin hostels. But the surrounding neighborhood itself doesn't have much.... The dorm mattress was hard as a rock, and "lobby" lacks any atmosphere/chill out areas. Staff seemed to be helpful but gave us some odd recommendations (for instance to walk up the hill to Pueblito when it was nearly dark.....) Overall there are much better places to stay in Medellin for similar price...


Has everything you need. Beds are comfy, staff is nice. But somehow it's lacking a bit of atmosphere. Doens't make it the most social hostel. Once their bar opens in the evening that gets better though. One really good thing is that it's right next to a metro station (about 150 meters away). That makes it a good base, if you want to go explore the city.

Thanks, good trip :)


Everything is fit. Wifi is good in my room on the same level as lobby. Reception is overall helpful. Hot water for bath is slightly unstable.

Thanks good trip :)


This hostel has comfortable beds, is super clean, a good kitchen, a small bar, roof terrace and offers free dance lessons twice a week. The staff are really friendly and helpful. It is located in a safe area, near cafes and supermarkets and the stadium metro station which provides quick and easy access to all of the city. The only thing this hostel lacks is atmosphere and continuous hot water.


Really nice hostel, helpful staff and good clean rooms. Good location in a central but not so touristy part pf town. Would definitely stay again.

Thanks good trip :)


Hostel had everything that was needed and everything from the beers to the dorm rooms were reasonably priced. Atmosphere was a little lacking.

Thanks Guest for visit us and write us, good trip :)


Very nice hostel in a great location to mix with locals rather than tourists. Right by the Metro and a main street with lots of bars, street food and supermarket. Some of the full-time staff were not very cheery (maybe a language issue), but the part-time backpackers working there were awesome!! They charge 10% for outside booze. Clean, great common rooms and breakfast is nice but rarely ever ready before 8:30h. Front rooms get lots of noise from street and Metro. Would still recommend though.

Thanks Mark We hope to see you soon :)


The staff was helpfull, I like this hostel but I´ve been in better ones. The location is very convenient though, just 5 minutes walking to the bus station and pretty close to all bars and pubs.
