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.


Aziz was extremely friendly. The two dogs are very nice too. Great place! Quiet neighbourhood, close to a metro station.


Stayed here for one night and was really impressed. Peaceful, comfy bed, very friendly owner. It is right next to a metro station also for easy access to everything.

The owner, Vince, was great. The hostel was clean and very well maintained.


This is the third time I have stayed here. The proprietor, Vincent, is a gracious host. He is attentive to the needs of the traveler. Each morning, he prepares a filling breakfast. There are several communal areas, including a pleasant, sunny rear garden. The private rooms are large and the hostel is kept quite clean. This is in a quiet, residential area of Medellin, but just a 3 minute walk to the Floresta metro station. Quiet nights, great for sleeping. NOT for the party crowd!


This is a great hostel with the best free breakfast and in a good location. Heads-up it will cost you $15.000 pesos to take a taxi from the south bus terminal and $9.000 from the north bus terminal. The north bus terminal you have the option of taking the Metro, Vince will give you details. Enjoy your stay, I did.


The dorm beds are SO comfortable and the breakfast is wonderful. There weren't lockers available in the dorm room -- I didn't like leaving all my valuables so available.


The French man who runs the hostel is great. He works hard to make people feel comfortable and accommodated in his hostel. His breakfasts are excellent and his attitude is too. The hostel is a ways away from the center of town but metro access is close and easy, so if your looking for an alternative to the hostels in the center of town this is a great one.
