had some nice days over there, really apreacciated that hostel. I will definitely go back there next time.


Worst hostel I stayed at during my trip through Colombia. The 6-bed-dorm is a cellar room with no door to close. The owner of the hostel has two dog and the whole hostel smelled like dog. Further, since there was no door to close to the dorm, not seldomly, the dogs had a rest in one of the beds - make sure you sleep in one of the upper beds if you do not want to have a nightly visit of a dog. Only positive thing to say: hot showers and the metro is just a two minute walk from the hostel....

honored to be the only one you took time to review.You have been very well treated during your 5 days with us,witnesses around me could testify that our house doesn't smell dog,they are clean,well behaved and educated and part of the success of YHH since the 1rst day,1 day 1guest did invite 1 dog for nap in his bed if not dogs know where they are allowed to go or not,they sleep in the entrance hallways,i find the concept dishonest to choose a doggy house and then complain about them,Vincent.


Very friendly staff and the hostel is set up in a great way for solo travelers, is a good place to meet people. Downsides are its not the cleanest hostel ever and is quite out of town, there isn't much to do in the local area, so you'll be getting on the metro every time you head out.

actually cleanning and security are the most important points for us,i am really sorry if the house didnt look clean when you were there,some times there is a lot of poeple and it can be messy,about the location the description explain well where we are and what is arround and to be so close to the metro is a good point to my point of view,i wish you stay more than one night(few hours)in town to make yourself a better opinion of everything,anyway thank you for replying,i wish every one do it


Great hostel if you're looking for a quieter, laidback atmosphere. Close to Calle 80 and 70 which is great if you want to go out somewhere other than Poblado.


Nice house in a friendly part of the city, and also very close to the metro. It's also a good place to meet other travellers. So there is really not much to complain about, it'a a perfect spot to explore the city!


Vincent´s local knowledge and help with arrangements was excellent. This is very very useful for a tourist in a foreign land, as it adds to safety.


Location: near metro station, in safe neighbourhood. Best about this hostel in the breakfast. I booked for 2 nights but stay for 4 nights :)


What a great experience. Thank you Vince for taking such pride in the services you are providing travelers. The hostel is safe, clean, quiet, cheap, with Wifi, sheet/blanket/pillow, access to a full kitchen, hot water, and breakfast made by Vince in the morning of 2 eggs, toast and butter/jelly, small bowl of mixed fruit, a glass of fresh juice and coffee. The sleeping arrangements are dark, quiet and comfortable. Since I have been traveling Colombia, this is the best sleep I have gotten.


Excellent breakfast (fresh juice, coffee, eggs, bread, and fruit), great location in a peaceful neighborhood next to the metro (but close to restaurants etc.), and great helpful hosts (including proprietor Vince and others). Nice peaceful and friendly atmosphere. The metal bunk beds in the 6 bedroom dorm were not the most comfortable we stayed in, but not bad also. Based on what we've head about some of the hostels around Parque Lleras, we absolutely did not regret staying at this cozy hostel!
