The worse staff! Really arrogant people! 3 days there and I saw a cleaner only one day! They charge you 10% of everything what you bring inside the hostel! The metro rail is just beside the windows so dont expected to sleep after 5 am in the morning!


We really enjoyed our stay at this hostel. It was in a cool neighborhood and was really easy accessed from the Metro. The vibe and atmosphere was nice. The only downside was the morning we were leaving where the girl working there starting to take the linen of the beds before we had emptied them and saying new people were checking in so we had to hurry up and leave the room (and this was two hours before check-out!)


I am Allergies and female dorm is dusty. It let my nose stock all night. Otherwise staff is Racism. One of them treat asian very bad. You can feel her Contemptuously vision when she sign to you. And she always call me CHINI even I come from taiwan. I guess her education has some problem let her don't know how to respect person. Or she thought I don't speak spanish so she will Jeer by spanish to another person. I am truly hope that they can hire better person to manage the hostel but this woman


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.
