    I actually extended my stay here, because everything was great. The staff was friendly and accommodating, plus they recommend local things to do during your stay. There is no A/C; however, the hostel is pretty open air and the weather is usually cloudy and cool. The rooftop bar was really cool with a cool vibe and nightly happy hour specials. There is a cafe with a full menu if you get hungry, which is really convenient. Also, the location is perfect: walking distance to the metro!

    Super cool hostel close to the metro for easy access to the city. Good atmosphere which makes it easy to meet other travellers. It’s also in a more authentic part of town and their language exchange events make it easy to meet locals. Lots of social areas to chill and the cafe downstairs serves the best coffee! Chilled vibe during the week, but more of a buzz on weekends as the hostel hosts a rooftop party on Fridays and salsa dancing on Saturdays. Will definitely come back!

    The hostel is in a neighborhood quieter than downtown, which made it a good spot to get away from the hustle and bustle, and felt safer. The Metro was super close, making it easy to quickly access the city. The hostel had great common spaces with the cafe on the ground floor, living room/kitchen/terrace on the main floor, and rooftop above. The manager Dave was really kind and helpful - he gave us a great suggestion for a coffee tour - Casa Grande Coffee Hacienda. Would stay again!

    This hostel wants to make sure you have a memorable time in Medellin. The staff couldn’t be friendlier, there are events happening multiple times a week (free salsa classes, language exchanges, and an overall great vibe of a place to just hang out in). Location is wonderful, only a 4 minute walk to the Floresta Metro. Hot showers and spacious rooms. Beds a little hard but I appreciate their use of mattress covers to avoid bugs! Would absolutely recommend to anyone coming to Medellin!

    Staff friendly. Great outdoor area with comfy seats. Nice cafe downstairs although didn't eat in it. Private room was next to the kitchen which was supposed to be closed within certain hours but at 6am someone was making smoothies. Shower tray was leaking water onto bathroom floor. Told manager and was fixed somewhat. Told manager fan didn't work- said he would fix it that day but didn't. Never heard back from him. Sink was not fully fixed to wall. Uncomfortable mattress. WiFi cut on and out.

    My experience at this hostel was extremely disappointing. A money belt (including a passport), computer, and camera were stolen from a bag in our locked, private room. Not enough effort was put in by the staff to ensure that things are kept safe and secure. Copies of keys are made without changing locks, there was no explanation for how someone could have gotten into our locked room, and little action taken after the objects were reported stolen. Not worth the risk of staying here.
