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.

Very relaxing hostel. Breakfast is great. Near a metro stop so it is easy to get around. Overall great hostel


Great place to stay! My girlfriend and I booked for 2 nights and ended up staying another. Loved this place, not a party Hostel, very small but feels like your home. awesome breakfast, great security locked gate 24/7, best shower I've had in 10 months travelling and god knows how many hostels. Vincent the owner is a really nice, helped us out a lot and called us a taxi to head off etc. He also has 2 huge sooky dogs who love people. everything was great


The hostel is in a quiet and safe neighborhood in walking distance to the metro, so it's easy to get around. The owner, Vincent, is very friendly and accomodating, and the hostel is clean and pleasant. Definitely a good value. I would certainly stay there again.
