Property Description

WHY ARE YOU READING THIS?
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.

    The Purple Monkey was home to me for about two weeks and probably one of my favourites in Colombia. The bar and patio is the PERFECT place to meet fellow backpackers. This hostel managed to strike the perfect balance when it comes to social spaces and alone time spaces which is key! Also the staff, especially David, is so wonderful, I know you will love it here!

    Amazing place for social solo travelers! Booked 3 nights and ended up staying 6. The place is cleaned constantly, the staff is pretty friendly, and the location is perfect (in El poblado but a short walk to parque lleras where more action aka noise is).

    Overall this is great place to stay if you’re looking to be sociable! Don’t worry, if you do want to remove yourself from the group you can find peace easily. They make sure if people are going out that they leave before a certain time. Downfall was the showers - the first day they were good but then they became really temperamental. Bathrooms were ALWAYS clean. Kitchen is really big with 3 cookers. Con - Breakfast is DIY and sometimes they close earlier then stated. Fans sometimes aren’t enough

    I shared room with idiots and they didn’t understand how to behave when people are sleeping in the room, so they never closed the door, turned the lights off or stopped talking at 23 in the evening. You will love this place if you like to party every night!! But as soon as you need rest you should stay somewhere else. Nice breakfast, clean, good staff, good location.! Close to the subway

    Great hostel for solo travellers. Wouldn't call it a party hostel but definitely social and so easy to meet people. In a quieter spot in Manila but easy walk to the nightlife of El Poblado. Rooms and bathrooms are clean, kitchen is also really clean and spacious. Quite expensive but most hostels in this area are. Wifi can be a bit spotty at times but otherwise no complaints!

    Pros: Small hostel with free breakfast and good wifi, great location close to a lot of good restaurants and a short walk to the clubs and bars. The hostel bar is a good place to meet people and the prices are very reasonable. Cons: only negative was the bed was as hard as a rock and not that comfortable to sleep in, the rooms can also get a bit warm as their is no air con.
