Very nice hostel, great location near the metro station, great food, acommodations and atmosphere. Vincent (the owner) and his dogs are the greatest. I strongly recommend it if you are going to visit Medellin
A great place in an excellent location to explore the city. It's a safe neighborhood right by a metro stop, and Vincent was so helpful in giving us tips on daytrips and tours. He also cooked a delicious homemade breakfast for everyone each morning with fresh juice, etc (MUCH better than any other hostels breakfasts!). The dogs are so swee, and as there aren't a huge amount of guests everyone hangs out and chats like a little travel family. I'd absolutely recommend!
The hostel is a 3 minute walk to the metro. It's really easy to get into town. The area is nice and there are shops and restaurants nearby. I'd recommend the diner at the petrol station! Vincent and his 2 dogs are very welcoming, breakfast is good. It's really clean and the Internet is good. Its good there are outdoor swimming pools nearby but you need trunks and a swimming cap. I'd recommend staying at yellow house
Tasty breakfast, two very friendly dogs, great location right next to a metro station makes the rest of the city very accessible. Vince the owner is very helpful and always around.
We loved our stay here!! Vincent gave us lots of info about the city and made us feel really welcome! The breakfast was fantastic, probably the best we have had in South America! There are also two gorgeous Labrador dogs which are so so friendly and love just hanging round with you and getting cuddles! Bathrooms and kitchens were clean, and the location felt really safe too, it is right by the metro and lots of shops. Would definitely stay here again!!
Nice atmosphere, feels like a home. Great breakfast with fresh fruit (and juices). The dogs are fun even if you're not a dog person. Walking distance (3 min) to Floresta metro station from where you can get anywhere in the city. A few streets away from the bars on Calle 70. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Depending on the mood of the owner Vincent be prepared for a different experience each day. Although the place is small and quiet with not much of a social area, the tv area is also his office. Be prepared for blasting techno while he is cleaning the place around 10am and also a 3 year old running up and down the hallway. Sometimes he can be friendly, other times a yes or no to your quieres. Not much around the area apart from a great local pool dien the road which is free. Free b'fast a bonus
great breakfast with eggs, cereales and fruit. good locaton near the metro, very bad connection internet and very variable mood of the owner. quebec
Nice hostel, in a very safe part of the city, great breakfast. The metro station is around the corner. Wifi signal is very poor sometimes.
We really enjoyed staying at Yellow Hostel. Great breakfast, nice clean, secure and serene accommodations. We met some great travelers in this hostel and got plenty of needed rest. The location was ideal for us as it is just a few blocks from the metro station. Nice hot showers, laundry service, access to the olympic pool complex. Vincent was a great host, if we stay in Medellin again it will be here.

Great hostel, great breakfast, great taste in music, great help, great location (not in the main tourist area but in pleasant, safe area and right next to the metro - easy enough to get around) and you have to love the dogs.
Because the Yellow House Hostel is so close to the Metro, it's really nice to stay in a different neighborhood than the heavily traveled Poblado area. Also, if you love dogs, stay here!

We enjoyed our stay at this hostel. It was extremely chilled out and quiet. The owner is wonderful and makes a great breakfast! His staff are great too! The hostel had a very homey feel to it. Bathrooms were clean and the 2 ply toilet paper felt like a major upgrade!! Hot showers were an added upgrade! The hostel was clean and safe and comfortable. It was conveniently located close to the train station so getting places was not an issue at all.
Hi Vince, great hostel you are running, not 100% because the atmosphere was a bit quiet at some times, its nice to have a chat to other travelers sometimes. Hopefully some more good reviews like this will change it for you. All the best Shaun
Good breakfast, nice quiet hostel, with two great dogs. french owner who knows what he is doing...
Yellow House was a great place to get some rest as it is on a quiet residencial street. But it was also very close to the metro, which was nice for getting around the city. The hot breakfast is a really nice way to start the day. Good space to chill out or watch a movie and good hot water in the shower. Vince was attentive and friendly. Thanks, yellow house.
Great relaxed hostel in a great location. Vince the owner is very helpful and keeps the place spotlessly clean, even though he has two lovely dogs. He cooks a mean little breakfast which is included in the price. Good facilities also include a kitchen and lightning fast wifi. Seriously loved my stay here and can only say good things about the place. Come visit and see for yourself.
Great Breakfast and a great staff cheers guys
This is not a party hostel but a chilled and quiet small hostel, so you know what you are looking for. It is located 5 minutes from the subway Floresta, which is convenient to visit the city; and 3 blocks from the supermarket. The kitchen is truly workable, the showers had hot water, the wifi is working and the included breakfast is good and served by the owner every morning.
