    Chill, eclectic hostel where you'll have a lot of fun (rooftop bar might be coolest I've ever seen in a hostel), and also an enriching, authentic Medellín experience. Staff is great (awesome Colombianas running place for fun owner). Location is perfect -- lively neighborhood w/parks, grocery store, etc., 10-minute walk to La Setenta and 2-minute walk to Metro. Super-clean. Good kitchen. Hot showers. And perhaps Ondas' best attribute: space. To chill. Balconies, rooftop, cafe... Good luck leaving

    My amazing Stay!!! The Ondas hostel is an amazing place , the chill atmospheres leads to relaxing times and creative energy. Having the Cafe downstairs on street level is an added bonus. The quality of the food was better than most of the places we ate at out and about. The tab concept they offer for paying makes it really nice so you can just have a beer, drink water or food and deal with paying up at the end of your stay. Oh , I cant forget the rooftop bar and lounge area, super eclictic.

    Good social hostel but could be cleaner. The downstairs cafe is cool but essentially everybody can just walk into the hostel and into he dorms since reception is in the cafe. My dorm did not have enough lockers for all beds and I had to lock my valuables in another room.

    You do not want to stay here, not sure why the rating is so high.There are only 3 bathrooms for the shared accomodations, out of which one is being used as storage which leaves 2.. had to wait 40 min to use it.Matresses and sheets are wrapped in plastic and then the sheets are put over that, which makes it incredibly uncomfortable to sleep and extremely loud if you even move an inch. The staff is hopeless, could not recommend any tours or places to visit and are extremely rude
