    I highly recommend Ondas, I stayed here both times during my trip when I visited medellin. Ondas is the perfect place to socialise. You can connect easily with local people here, but also with other travellers because there are so many great social areas to hang out in (roof terrace, balcony, cafe). It's based in a nice local area, perfect if you don't want to stay somewhere super touristy. Other pluses: The café serves good food, the staff were really friendly, the showers were hot.

    We really enjoyed our stay here, the staff firstly were super friendly, pushed us to use our Spanish a lot more which was good! The hostel had really good atmosphere on the Wednesday and Friday night but nothing much happened the Thursday and Saturday night! Depends what your looking for! It’s located in a really safe area only a 10 minute walk to one of the metro stations! Would definitely stay here again.

    Amazing hostel with great staff who attract a great bunch of guests. Very relaxed & liberal. All of the staff were lovely, a special shout out to Lise and Valeria. Lise was very friendly & talkative & Valeria was always smiling. The volunteers were also amazing. Only minor downside for us was that we didn't really appreciate the Cultural Exchange night on the roof. The music was very loud until 12 & there were non-guests passing through the hostel (no room locks). Others enjoyed the night tho.

    The hostel itself is not located in the busiest or most touristic area but that makes it that much better. Because of the subway station nearby every part of town can easily be reached so you can enjoy the calmness of away from all the traffic. Cleanliness could be better but the girls working at the hostel make that up easily with their smiles and good vibes.

    Overall a nice hostel. Safe location and close to the metro, supermarket, ATM, and comuna 13. Decent social vibe and the common areas/rooftop bar are nice. Only complaints are that the mattresses are really hard and covered in plastic, so it’s pretty loud when people move in their sleep. The kitchen/fridge are in desperate need of a deep cleaning. The shower curtains had mold on them, but the bathrooms themselves were fairly clean. You get what you pay for, and can’t beat 6 dollars a night.

    Very Good

    The hostel has a great, relaxed vibe and an awesome rooftop terrace. It's also very close to metro station Floresta. The area itself is super residential - the busier bits of Laureles are quite far away. If you want to cook for yourselves or use the cafe, this is a god option, but there's not much around in terms of restaurants. The bed was really uncomfortable. Mattress and pillows were in protective plastic cases, so it was super hot and every movement loud We were charged 5% to pay by card
