    La Playa is an amazing Hostel with beautiful staff who help you with anything you need. The location is awesome for going to the bars. It has its own terrace bar which has a good atmosphere. This was the longest I’ve ever stayed at a Hostel because I kept extending my stay.

    This place is AMAZING! It's ne of the best hostels i've ever been, the atmosphere is unbelivable. The place is perfectly located at the hearth of the party area, so if you want to party, nice restaurants and bars and clubs, this is your place. It's also a party hostel, with games happy hours everynight, amazing pub crawl on a wednesday. But the BEST part of it is the STAFF... they're UNBELIAVABLE... Special mention to Alberto, Dani, Juan and Raul. They're unbeliavable.

    Staff extremely helpful and friendly and great taking us out (Luiz, Raul, Daniela, Juan- just an awesome group!) location unbeatable (so glad we kept this booking instead of changing to Los Platios where everyone we met seemed to have stayed!) great atmosphere on weekends. Free breakfast is eggs but they let us swap to banana toast too. If you get a room by the rooftop is hard to sleep if you wanna chill so maybe request to stay downstairs

    This was an incredible hostel and exactly what we were looking for from Medellin. While it was great all round, two areas in particular stand out. Location. The location is perfect: it is among the restaurants and bars of the city's Poblado district. One of the few areas of Medellin where I felt comfortable walking around solo at night. Staff. everyone working at the hostel was super friendly and helpful. They give the place a fun and relaxed vibe and made our stay unforgettable.

    Absolutely loved this hostel!! I had originally stayed in Los Patios, and wish I had found La Playa earlier! Amazing location, excellent and knowledgeable staff, incredible breakfast (it is served in a restaurant next to the hostel) and a really good vibe to meet people. I was there on one of the hostel's least busy days, on a Monday, and I still had a fab time. Only complaint is that the bed fans are too high on the wall and don't direct air towards the pillow, making them pretty useless!

    I loved my stay at La Playa. The breakfast that is included is an egg cooked your way and toast. The staff have many recommendations on things that you can do during your stay. There was also events in the hostel that made a good place to meet people. The common room is close to downstairs bedrooms because of the hammock-I heard complaints of people being too loud. Overall I loved my experience and would definitely stay again.

    Overall we had a great stay. Things to mention is the staff and bar tender are not very friends (except for Raul who was amazing!!!!). Special mention to Caro who runs the Wednesday pub crawl, she is an angel!!! The pub crawl was super fun, however overall ambience on other nights in the rooftop bar was lacking. Not a party hostel, but you can meet people if you try! Great location. No lockers in the room which means a lot of c**p everywhere if the room is full.

    Staff were some of the friendliest, most helpful I have ever met - especially Daniela and Raul! I didn't see any cockroaches running around my room but there were a few dead ones on the floor of the hostel. My only other criticism is that the 4 bed dorm I was in was tiny - barely enough space to put my bag.

    Just as a warning: this is a party hostel in a very touristy neighborhood. I was negatively surprised by that...
