Nice hostel with a good location. Metro is just a 5 minute walk away. Kitchen is not really clean nor spacious but good enough to prepare a meal. Rooms and bathrooms are ok.


Great hostel - very clean rooms, comfortable beds, hot showers, great kitchen and nice little outside area to chill out in. The staff are really friendly and some nice local people come to have drinks some nights and are really happy to take you out and show you the town. The hostel is close to a massive Exito supermarket and just around the corner from Suramericana station so easy access to El Poblado and the downtown area. Highly recommend.


Staff was EXCELLENT, facilities and location and atmosphere were all fine, too. Unfortunately the dorm was a bit cramped and one guy had an old wet towel that made the whole room smell bad :(


The cleaning staff was super friendly but in general, everybody only spoke Spanish what makes it a bit difficult for somebody without any Spanish skills. The beds were way too small for everybody. Breakfast was ok. They provide eggs and toast bread or cereals with yoghurt and coffee or tea. But they haven't had milk for coffee/tea or a toaster for the bread. The location is quiet nice because of the subway station close by and a big super market just around the corner.


You will not find better staff anywhere! The lady at reception was beyond helpful and even helped us book flights with Viva Colombia. The hostel was clean, beds comfortable, cool hangout area but there weren't too many people staying there when we were there so that's the reason I scored lower on the atmosphere. Would definitely stay again though.


Great little hostel, for an urban experience, extremely friendly staff, good facilities


Of all the places we stayed at, this hostel is my favorite one and deserves all the awards. The staff was extremely friendly and always took time to help us out, to chat or whatever else, without overdoing it. The place has a bit of a 90s feel to it, but is clean (!) and simple. I also liked the bookshelf that offered detailed information on Medellín. After having used cold showers for about 3 weeks, this place had one shower with hot water (highly appreciated). Not located in a party zone.


Great staff and great people! Even if it is not that close to El Poblado, you have a metro station right there, and can get everywhere pretty fast. I would definitely go there again...


Wonderful staff, good spaces to hang out, close to metro, strongly recommend!
