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.
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.
Very nice atmosphere at this place. Miss Paola and Miss Oriana are excellent hosts

Good location but not a good place to meet other backpackers. Mostly Colombians on holiday and staff. The staff didn't bother to keep the noise level down as people were busy in the cooking kitchen outside of our room after midnight. I'm not against hanging out and drinking, but there's a bar area where noise would have been fine. Bathroom was lacking a light during our entire stay and generally not kept clean. Wouldn't recommend, there are other great hostels in the city.
It's a great cheap place to stay in Medellín. Definitely not a party hostel (which for me was ideal). There were a couple live-in guests, which is always nice at dinner time, and it seemed to attract cool people. The main things that made it great for me were * 2 minute's walk from train * Access to grocery nearby * Good environment for meaningful interactions
In a great location; Metro station is 1 minute walk away, the bars and restaurants of Cra. 70 a little bit further. Would definitely stay here again.
REALLY NICE ATMOSPHERE & A GREAT LOCATION! MEDELLIN IS A WELL ORGANIZED CITY. YOU ARE RIGHT DOWNTOWN - WHERE ALL THE ACTION IS AT! * CALLE 70* THE STAFF ARE VERY HELPFUL & COOL:) ITS STILL NEW & COMMUNITY FRIENDLY CLEAN SHEETS & BATHROOMS:) COLD BEER & HOT SHOWERS:)) WHAT MORE CAN YOU ASK FOR $12 A NIGHT?? THEY EVEN WASH YOUR CLOTHES FOR $1 I RECOMMEND IT ABOVE A LOT OF MORE EXPENSIVE 3 STAR HOTELS THERE!
