    Happy Buddha is located in the perfect place in Medellín. You can walk to every single bar and pub, in 20 min you can get to the metro station where you can basically move all over Medellín. The girls from the reception are really nice and help you with everything you need. The bar in the terrace is cheap and a good place to meet people. I recommend happy Buddha all the way.

    This was a good stay! Although I think it’s a bit of a dead season, the people there made it a good time! The bartenders are also super friendly and the drinks are cheap. Overall it was a good stay and would recommend it.

    Very clean atmosphere, located right in central poblado so if that’s the area you want to be in you can’t go wrong. Although I was there on a Friday night and the famed party atmosphere didn’t really appear.

    If you want to meet people don’t go there. It was always empty and even though there was no one, they would put some loud music from 4 pm to late at night, which made it impossible to sleep. The staff was rude, when I asked questions I felt like I was annoying them most of the times.

    Disappointed in Happy Buddha. I was here two years ago and it was a great time, and definitely a good party. This year I came here for the weekend and the atmosphere was dead both nights, maybe it had something to do with them charging double the price for a beer compared to any other hostel. It’s a shame. Also if you do laundry here make sure to keep inventory of what you give them because I lost two pieces of my favorite clothing through their overpriced laundry service. Figure it out.

    Disappointing. Our stay from start to finish was a joke. Staff were incompetent with zero communication amongst each other. Let down for tours, absolute mess of room situations where we had to move loads. Bed bugs. Bar was empty every night but the awful music was blaring constantly. Good area for bars. Spend as little time as possible at the hostel. Breakfast was decent. Main issue was the non existent atmosphere and some staff who did not care and who were pretty useless. Very very disappointi
