It was alright, odd placement, no real atmosphere. Staff tried but were very unsuccessful in giving directions to anywhere of use. Wouldn´t stay again.


This is a terrific hostel that has it all. Helpful, friendly supportive staff. Free breakfast of 2 eggs and bread that I prepared in a variety of ways. Working kitchen with everything you need to prepare meals. Opportunities for socializing with other people. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Patios. Only one problem with the female dorm: no window and no fan so we had to leave the door open and it was still too warm to sleep. If the hostel can provide ventilation, the dorm is small but comfortable.


Lovely people own and run this Hostel. They are very welcoming and willing to help in every way. A place to call homme while traveling


Pro's: It's near de metrostation and big supermarkets, nice staff, rooms are very comfortable, excellent coffee for free all day Con's: We had always cold water, they tried to fix it, but we had cold water for the next two days. Breakfast is okay, but not that much


To be honest, I am a bit torn. The people are great and they were trying to be accommodating, but nobody spoke any English there, contrary to what's stated here (apparently, one person that does was on vacation) so I couldn't really get any recommendations or other information from them - other people staying at the hostel helped me out thou. Lockers are tiny - just for your passport/wallet and room doors have no locks so I didn't feel very comfortable with that. Location ok, quick walk to metro


It is a nice hostel with friendly staff WHO is willing to help you!


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
