Property Description

Don’t you realise you’re wasting valuable drinking time?!!

This is the bit where we try and persuade you that our hostel is the best, with generic expressions like being “perfectly located” and “the comfiest beds in the city”. We can make all these claims, but the only thing you need to know is that we will never:

-Give you up
-Let you down
And most importantly,
-Run around and desert you

OK, so you’re waiting for the hard sell. Well we have it all here. The biggest roof terrace bar in Medellin with the best graffiti you’ve probably ever seen in your life (check out the photos).

Our British owner has lived here for 5 years and backpacked all through South and Central America and is like the Yoda of all things Colombia. Ask him anything (apart from where babies come from – he’s still not too sure about that one. He has a theory about a stork but we digress).

Every bed has 4 (yes 4) plug sockets including two in your huge locker. Our dorm rooms are spacious and ample to swing a cat in (we suspect that you could swing a tiger in there but have never tried).

For those who hate the idea of human interaction, our 2 WIFI networks give access to important information like what kind of potato you are, and you will never be left in the dark about what your friends have had for dinner.

Want to book a tour? Easy. Want to be 5 minutes from the Metro and nightlife? Done. Want to put on a dress and call yourself Susan? Hey it’s all good.

Still reading? It’s time to make that reservation and get back to more important things. We have a lot of preparing to do before the zombie apocalypse.

    A really great hostel in Poblado with a good vibe and 2 social areas which make it really easy to meet people! I ended up staying much longer than planned - would recommend!

    Great hostel for solo travelers as it's well situated, very safe and the staff is helpful. It's not as big as los patios or other hostels, but I actually like that as it felt more intimate. There's a nice rooftop area you can hangout with other people and do things. Staff is amazingly helpful and they organize fun events here and there. Very quiet at night which makes it great for sleeping after a night of partying. It's a bit too quiet if you want a super party place but loved it! so clean!

    Very fun and memorable time at purple monkey! Friendly staff, good breakfast, and great atmosphere of travelers who are all excited to hang out and meet new people. Clean with very nice facilities. As a heads up, the 10 person room can sometimes get a bit hot and stuffy!

    It's got everything you need. Personally it lacked a certain charisma that can be found in some hostels, but it was never for a lack of cleanliness, attention, staff, amenities or anything like that. Usually, there will be a big group of people to party with through the majority of the week if thats what you desire.

    Cool hostel with good vibes and nice social areas. However, the room wasn’t that clean and the beds were ok. It didn’t help that the guys at reception were chatting until 3 am in the morning which prevented me from sleeping when I came back late to the hostel.

    Great location in the heart of Poblado, only 5-10 minutes from the metro station which makes it easy to get out and explore the city. Not as much of a wild party hostel as I’d been expecting, but I was there in the off season so maybe everywhere was a bit quieter. Bar upstairs is nice though

    Bit of a weird one, not atmosphere the bar was empty, expecting a party place it wasn’t at all! Breakfast average eggs and coffee! The room stank! It was grim, sweaty ball smell! Complained to no avail as did others! Sort it out! David on reception was cool and helpful though! Every place has a good guy! Sure I got charged for an xtra beer so watch your tab!
