    Great hostel! The room had a huge locker that could fit my whole backpack in it, beds were comfy and had plugs and lights beside them and the showers were great. Staff were super helpful at giving directions or tips on what to do in the city.

    This hostel is great. I was staying in a private room that felt like I was staying in highly rated hotel. Very clean, comfortable, well located near good restaurants, bars, metro stop. Stuff is very friendly and professional. WiFi is excellent. They can book many different tours at the hostel. Good for socializing. I would definitely stay at this hostel if I come again to Medellin.

    Great stay, very helpful people and good area! Gate with a lock that had to be pressed by receptionist so it felt very safe. Only negative was it smelled a bit musty in the room, but it's a very wet, humid climate so it's expected. Thanks!!

    Loved this place. The main reason being the staff: all of them were extremely friendly and helpful. Had two amazing days in Medellin because of their suggestions- they really organised our stay. Would highly recommend Comuna 13 tour, city tour and paragldiing. Hostel is not the prettiest but all very clean and spacious; beds very comfy. In a really safe area about 15min walk from El Poblado station.

    Very Good

    Had been referred here by a few people who said it had a good atmosphere, was a bit disappointed as didn’t feel there was much going on in terms of social activities/ nightlife. Hostel could have organised something for Friday and Saturday nights. There was a big football game on during our stay and there was no word of this in hostel. Had an unfortunate crowd in room which isn’t the hostels fault but tainted our stay. The hostel staff were nice and it was clean

    I did not enjoy my stay, we wanted to stay for two nights ended up just staying for one. Room was warm, with no fan/ac. The common areas inside smelled like cigarette smoke. This hostel is more the party hostel then we expected and i regret making the choise of comming here.
