Very quiet neighbourhood. We felt very safe and comfortable walking around. Close to the Metro which was easy to use and efficient. Staff were pleasant and dogs were great. Our room was small and a bit stuffy but quiet. A fan included in the price would have been nice. All in all we would recommend this as a chill place to relax.

I've stayed at Yellow House twice now. The hostel is ideally located a few minutes walk from the metro, staff are friendly, breakfast is great and so are the constant hot water showers. Would definately stay again in the future!

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....

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.


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 :)
