    Homely and welcoming feel with a great local experience. The language exchange on the Friday night was so much fun. The people that I spoke too said that they go every week as it turns into a great party. Location great for public transport, close to the stadium and communa 13 (highly reconmended) but without the "tourist trap" feel like the other hostel I stayed in last week. Cool artwork. Plenty of places to lounge around. Cafe has great coffee and food. Staff really friendly and always smilin

    Quite a charm. The location is great. The staff are super friendly and the vibe is relaxed and warm. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to meet good people and have a few beers on the brill roof terrace. Dave the owner is a great guy. Much respect to what he’s doing. The language swap nights are also a big favourite amongst locals and fellow travellers. Was sad to leave.

    Great hostel if you want a relaxed atmosphere, but also want to meet other travellers and locals who regularly come to the rooftop bar. The breakfast is good and there is even a vegan option! One of the best hostels I have stayed in

    I did excellent Spanish lessons at the hostel and enjoyed a lot the cafe area. Staff were super helpful and there were great communal areas including a well equipped kitchen. The location was perfect for experiencing Medellin.

    Great stay in Hostal Ondas which is located in the La Floresta neighborhood which was a great area to explore, being for the first time in Medellin. Safe and very well connected to the metro system. Extremely well received by the team, very comfortable bed and lovely rooftop to chill / have a drink. Also great as you have both café and bar to quench your thirst or grab something to eat. Highly recommend !

    Nice place, a bit too quiet for me but it depends what you are looking for I guess. Really nice breakfast! Located in a good part of the city next to a metro. They have lockers but don't have. A safe storage place if you are planning to leave your stuff at a hostel while you go for a 2day/1 night trip to guatapé (which I recommend)

    Nice hostel in good location, away from the madness of Poblado but still well not connected. Friendly staff but better for those more fluent in Spanish. Vibey rooftop bar and good prices, although can be loud and people coming in off the street so might not be for you if you're looking for a quiet weekend.

    This hostel is great - and the location as well. It’s quiet and has all the right facilities. BUT just don’t take the first four bed room, it’s right by the street and you can hear everything. Apart from that - all other rooms are okay. If we would have had a better room - we would have rated this place higher

    Perhaps it was the timing (we arrived at night), but the hostel felt fairly dark and dingy. The room was basic and the indoor common area wasn't particularly comfortable to hang out in. The owner was great and tried to be really helpful which we were very appreciative of!

    - no lights on the roof top terrace plus cigarettes and empty beer bottles - many plants are dead which kind of ruins the atmosphere - our room was completely dirty when we checked in. They fixed it when we asked though. - the fridge leaked water into our room overnight - the amount of dirty dishes in the kitchen reminded me of a student dorm - breakfast started too late. Between 9-11 but it was not ready at 9. Only positive thing was the breakfast was tasty.
