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.

    Excellent hostel, very well thought out. Beds had lights and plug sockets. Separate guy and girls toilets and showers with plenty of space plus hot water! Also cleaned regularly! Location is very close to metro and loads of nice restaurants. Definitely recommend, good value for money

    This is a great hostel in Medellin. The staff is really friendly and it is in a great, safe location. The facilities are super clean and there are hot showers with great water pressure- which is so nice! The rooftop terrace is a fun, social atmosphere too. Would definitely recommend.

    Fabulous

    07 Feb 2019
    The hostel itself is lovely, great location and lovely bar but with limited drinks. Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. The included breakfast was good, on some days limited and you made your own eggs, no hot water/tea only coffee. There are a very limited number of toilets which caused queues especially when everyone is in the bar. Really helpful that the wristbands have the address on! Organise a lot of activities eg football and bar crawl

    Very Good

    02 Feb 2019
    Nice location, very good bed and hot showers! It is a very good place to meet new people, since there is a bar at the hostel and people hang out there drinking, before going out! Breakfast is just OK, not much. Staff wasn't so helpful explaining about the city, giving nice suggestions of what do to during the day, tips on where to eat, etc. There are no keys to the rooms. One girl in my room got some stuff stolen, and staff wasn't so helpful, saying only the owner could help next day afternoon
