We are in front of the stream a lovely green quiet neighborhood away from the noisy streets but close enough to the main action.

We are something between a party hostel and a quiet one with very nice public spaces to chill and socialize. An indoor area with nice sofas to watch movies or chill and an outdoor area to socialize, have some beers, eat or play games and chill as well.There are Bingo on thursday night with really good prizes at 7 pm, free salsa lessons every Friday at 8pm were you can learn the basics of salsa and meet locals, and a delicious Greek style BBQ every Sunday around 8pm!

There is a big map of Medellin highlighting the best sights that are described in a book we made in English and Spanish.We also provide tours like the Pablo Escobar tour or the Paragliding and our bilingual personal is there to help you whatever you might need!

We provide laundry service, 24hrs reception/bar and make your own pancake between 7:30 AM until 10:00 AM with coffee, butter and syrup or brown sugar with fresh fruits as a Free breakfast. There is Free WIFI in all the hostel and 2 computers to use for Free as well!We also provide Free towels by deposit. The showers are nice and have good pressure of hot water always!

We have 5 dorms and 3 privates each one has different prices and characteristics that their name from Greek mythology describes quit good! From Hades (converted garage) to Olympus (converted mafia suite) you can choose from really cheap accommodation or upgrade to a better one or choose one of our budget but comfy privates. The beds are very comfy and practical equipped with electricity sockets in each bed, side shelves, lockers and even private lamps in some of them.

    11/10 for Arcadia hostel. The location and chill/homie atmosphere is hard to beat for the price! Pancakes and coffee are a great way to start the day 😋 Spyros, the owner has great recommendations for activities and tours to do in the area and speaks great English. Carlos, is also very kind and helpful (Spanish speaking). The location! Safest and prettiest part of Medillin! El Poblado, wow! It’s very convenient to be close to home after a fun night out. Excited for my next visit in this pa

    This hostel was truly one of the best places we stayed in all of South America. Friendly staff, great kitchen, and central location in poblado. The rooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable including hot showers! We enjoyed the free breakfast of a pancake, fruit, egg, and coffee, and a tremendous group dinner. Please stay here if you’re coming to Medellin!

    Loved our stay here, staff were amazing and always trying to help. Fab breakfast and some of the best nights sleep we have had. Atmosphere was slightly lacking, not sure why as lots of organised events, though think it was off season so this could be why! Great hostel

    Nice place, always people about to talk to. Staff very helpful with what to do and where to go. Location is a bit quieter area, felt safe, only downside is it's a little way from the metro. The hostel is clean but could maybe do with a little spruce up, some hooks to hang things in the rooms and bathrooms would be useful.

    We stayed at Arcadia for 3 nights in a private room. The location is amazing in El Poblado - quiet at nights but so close to the action. The staff are very friendly and helpful - including the owner. The bed was pretty comfortable and the fan helped keep us cool at night. However, the room and some of the common areas need some up keep - the sink in the shower with a broken handle on the faucet, for example. The breakfast is a little shabby - you need to fry your own egg (only 1 allowed).

    Very Good

    The hostel is quite calm and although located in poblado very quiet. But on the other hand its also quite a walk from the metro station and the happening in poblado. The place is clean and welcoming but the vibe is not really there. Maybe it was also because there weren’t many people there when i stayed there. The host and the guy working there are verh helpful and friendly!

    Very Good

    arrived very early in the morning (night bus) and when I got there there were people sleeping all over the common areas. Didn’t particularly mind but was a bit strange! Breakfast is free and tasty! Staff are very informative and help you get the most out of your trip but aren’t particularly enthusiastic or friendly. Always felt like I was bothering them when I needed help! Didn’t find much of a social atmosphere and overall I had a much better stay in the Viajero down the road.

    I would have love to leave a 10 but even though Carlos and Gyros were amazing hosts. The woman in the morning shifts was annoying as hell. I tried to book one more night and she asked me to pay the money in front for the reservation even though I was gonna leave my suitcase... Some people can kill the whole vibe of a place and we'll congratulations because she did it very well. Thank you Gyros and Carlos. You both were amazing.
