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.

    Fun hostel. Pub crawl on Thursday was pretty good. Really secure there and in a safe neighbourhood. Heaps of food places and only a short walk to the clubbing area ect. Definitely try the burrito from across the road when the lady is set up!

    Overall I had a good experience. The people were great, staff was great, facilities and breakfast was great. Outside terrace is a very social area at night, people from otherhostels in the area come to hang out there. I would definitely consider it a party hostel so come if you’re ready for that and skip it if you don’t want that.

    Really good atmosphere on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights I was there (I hear it's quieter the rest of the time). Room was really comfortable which remained cool and dark at night - also clean and secure. It's in a lovely area that is a 10-15 min walk to the nightlife or metro station.

    Like this hostel, if you want a party and plenty of people to meet its cool. More for young people though in my opinion. Meet some top people and the owner is sound as a pound!
