    I booked this hostel as a one night treat. We ended up staying 4 nights overall. This place is so beautiful and unique - the perfect respite from the chaos of Medellin. Mariano is an incredible host and cooked us all kinds of phenomenal meals with produce grown on his property. He was nothing but generous with his time and knowledge. We are so grateful to have come across the Buddha. Mariano’s recommendations added so much depth and flavour to our Colombia trip. Stay here! It is worth the price.

    It was so quiet, which I loved, and the funky decor is my favorite style. It was highly peaceful and relaxing. The owner will cook for you if you ask him to. There is a water fountain, and a balcony where you can practice yoga and meditation. It is beside a bus which takes you to metro in 10 minutes for less than $1. Metro in Medellin is advanced and very clean.

    The Secret Buddha is an absolute serene oasis. The owner and staff truly welcome you and make you feel like it’s much more than a hostel, it’s a home! Food was great, they accommodate to all dietary restrictions. Rooms are beautiful and cleanly. The sweetest and cutest pets that are happy to give you some love but they also keep their distance if you’re not into fur babies. You can’t go wrong!

    Secret Buddha Hostel is one of my favorite places I’ve ever stayed. the owner was always so friendly, cooked wonderful food, and helped me arrange massages on-site as well as a nearby tennis lesson. This hostel is beautiful, the gardens are magical and each room has an incredible bathroom. I stayed in the suite which I highly highly recommend. I cannot wait to return to Secret Buddha Hostel!

    Loved this place. Incredible outside shower and architecture. The entire place is like an art museum. All hand made with a lot of materials from the earth. The owner is an amazing chef and host. Was by myself for the weekend and loved the great food and conversation. Listened to so many amazing stories and learned a lot. House dogs and cat are kind and cuddly. The healing spa was amazing. This place was so therapeutic can’t wait to come back!

    Such a unique place. A true Oasis just 20 minutes from downtown Medellin where I was able to relax and get back in touch with myself and nature. The art collection tells a story of the owners life and the food prepared is absolutely exquisite. Each room has its own unique feel and don’t even get me started with the downstairs tropical paradise he has created. If you are looking for a unique experience that you will not find anywhere else in the country, I highly recommend you visit here!

    Mariano and team have raised the bar for other hostels to aspire to. This beautiful, peaceful, relaxing escape will be the only place I stay every time I visit Medellin. The food was 5 star dining! The art, the decor, and the location are perfect. It’s easy to navigate from here even if you do not speak Spanish. Mariano speaks multiple languages and is always happy to help any traveler with things to do in Colombia. I feel like I’m staying with family and friends at the Secret Buddha.

    Beautiful hostel replete with plants, world art and tranquility. There's a tasty cooked breakfast of omelette and arepas each morning if you want, and the owner, is very friendly and on hand with suggestions for things to do and places to visit. Although the location is relatively remote (2 km south of the last metro station, La Estrella), there are buses running at the bottom of the lane every couple of minutes that go to the station and all the way into the centre. Highly recommend.
