    Arcadia hostel is located in Poblado, the best and safest barrio in Medellin. The staff was very helpful in explaining to me all the tourist options that Medellin offers. The beds were long and wide which helps because I am 1.92m tall! The owner hosts a great Greek Asado (try the Tzatziki sauce!) on Sunday nights, and the hostel organizes other events during the week. The vibe is chill as the 'Party Zone' is minutes away, but the noise doesn't reach the hostel. I will be back!

    The hostel is in a great location and has a relaxed and friendly vibe. The staff is very helpful and the beds are the most comfortable I have ever slept on while my travels in South America! The pancakes for breakfast were yummy and filling. Can only recommend this place.

    Probably my favourite hostel I've stayed in in South America in 4months. Let's start with that it's super cheap for the breakfast included (on days with pancakes it's very filling, not so much on cereal days). The beds were comfortable, and the atmosphere was fantastic, perfect for a solo traveller. It's not a party hostel, so you can sleep, but you will meet many people to party with. Do yourself a favour though, and book a room that has a bathroom in it.

    Great hostel in pretty safe and central location near Calle 10 (3 mins )and poblado metro station (20mins). Bathrooms are clean all the day,room was cleaned everyday and it has nice common space to chill and meet other travellers !The only downside was the not so clean kitchen but that depends everytime with the travellers . Breakfast is fresh fruits ,egg and diy pancakes which is cool.Great value for money .If you have the chance meet Spyros the owner,he is cool guy with many stories to share !

    Cheap and cheerful place. It's a nice and basic hostel, the breakfast is good. The 11 bed room only had one bathroom for everybody which wasn't great, especially at peak times of use.

    We had a short and sweet stay in Arcadia. We arrived at 8am after a night on an overnight bus, the staff were so friendly, helping us with checking in, storing our bags and letting us get changed. They helped us plan our day. The make your own pancakes is great and the hostel is walking distance from the metro station.

    I stayed in a private room at this Hostel for two nights. Not the most modern Hostel I stayed in but the location was great for what I needed. Great for the price

    Very Good

    For the price, Arcadia is definitely worth it. The breakfast was awesome as far as hostel breakfasts go (pancakes, fruit, eggs, and coffee), and the staff was friendly. Good location in El Poblado, too! It isn’t the cleanest hostel, and there are only three bathrooms (two showers) in the whole place. The room was fine though, and the kitchen has pretty much everything you need to cook; there is even a blender! I wish we could have been here on the weekend for the free salsa lesson and Greek bbq!

    The exterior of this hostel seems extra creepy during the night seriously looks like a horror movie. (The interior is not so bad) however, I have to make sure to mention how FILTHY and infested this kitchen was! I had to pour myself water sometime past 9:30 pm only to walk into a kitchen with roaches everywhere!!!! They were all over (dishes, stove, counter, sink, floor etc). It was disgusting (we had made breakfast the morning prior!) Dirtiness outweighs the friendly staff!😒
