    Great place to stay, in a quiet but close to the action street which provides you with a short walk to all the main restaurants and night life

    I had a good time at this hostel! The location is amazing. And they really try to have events / get people into the bar. it could be more social! But other than that, i have no complaints.

    Great hostel. Clean for a party place. Come here if you want to have a good time lol. Big thing for me is how they dont let you bring people back? I understand they want to avoid theft and people doing illegal things but i had a private room and couldnt even bring a few buddies into the room to chill.... they need to sort that situation out as its too strict. Its a blanket rule that shouldnt apply to every situation. Love this place and have been here twice but i may pick somewhere else now

    Great location, only a few minutes walk to the Main Street and plenty of restaurants and bars close by. The staff were always helpful and friendly. We had a private room - there was an issue with a leak that caused some mould so they were happy for us to change rooms with no issues. We stayed during the week so there wasn’t a great vibe.. we left on a Friday so perhaps the party starts then but found it hard to socialise unless you were in the bar area. Breakfast was A+ for free.

    Very Good

    Pros: Location near many good restaurants and bars. Free bfast was decent with ability to add on. Fairly clean. Cons: The hostel is pretty much dead until much later in the night, where non-hostel people come to the bar area. I wish they had planned activities to help meet people easier (ie bar crawls). One night, the fog machine kept going off so frequently you couldn't even play beer pong, I also had no hot water in the showers for the 3 nights I was there (I guess it was broken?)

    The cleanliness was the biggest issue for us, we enjoyed the staff and the area we were in very much, but I’m pretty sure I got bed bugs and some of the bathrooms would be pretty gross at times. The night life there is fun and we had a good time! We wished the desk told us more about the city and things to do besides the few popular tours (although I’m sure they were cool we wanted more info)

    Definitely not a party hostel. There were a few other people I saw at breakfast, but not a hostel to meet or hang out with other travelers. The room was tiny, right off the kitchen. There wasn't enough room to even have my bag on the floor and be able to open the bathroom door. The room was clean though. Location was great. Breakfast was good. Staff was nice, but not overly helpful.

    We had been recommended this hostel as ‘the best party hostel in Medellin’ - this was far from the truth. It was completely dead, no atmosphere, the whole thing was being painted black, quite depressing - even the drinks were overpriced even though the bar was completely dead. The only good thing was the location. Do not stay here if you are looking for a party hostel.

    Got recommended this by friends. Apparently it used to be the best party hostel but according to people we spoke to a number of factors has made it basically the deadest atmosphere in the city. Staff not very helpful. TVs don’t work couldn’t even watch the copa America. Not very clean. Honestly the worst thing about my trip to Columbia was this place. DO NOT STAY HERE
