We booked for 4 nights, showed up and were not happy with the place so we paid for one night and left. When the website lists a private room as having an ensuite it should be that and not an outside bathroom that all of the private rooms have to share. The private room also had one tiny window that made it feel like a prison cell. The place isn't nearly as nice and new looking as the pictures make it seem but I guess most hostels do this. Plus side. AC in the private room worked well.
The common areas and pool are very nice. Good area to meet other travelers. Staff are fantastic. Rooms are very basic and could use a touch of updating to match the common areas.
Fantastic hostel all around. Stayed in the 3 bed private ensuite. It was like a hotel room. The neighborhood is great and the staff are all great. Justin, the owner, is the man and took care of us more than Ive ever had a hostel owner do before. After traveling around colombia we realized we were spolied in medellin as we cant find a place to stay in other cities that compares to the happy buddha.
