    We had a great stay here. The location was optimal for El Poblado. So close to everything. The staff (especially Lili) were so kind and helpful. The included breakfast and coffee was thoughtful. Great stay!

    Located right off of Calle 10 in el poblado, you’re a hop and a skip from the action. Provenza and Lleras are a 2 min walk away. Staff are friendly and will help you out when needed, and they have a great bar for watching fútbol or any other events.

    Very Good

    We stayed in the private room with double bed and bathroom. The mattress was so hard it felt like a wood pallet. But the bathroom was nice and had a large shower. Also the window in the private room opens up to the bar area so it’s loud. Overall, okay for the price but the bed sucks

    This place is very loud - it’s a bar as well. The owners are trying very hard, but it wasn’t our kind of place. Music plays from 8:00 to after midnight. I think since we were there for a week they should have given us a room far away from the bar. The kitchen is basically useless - there are about 2 glasses, no mugs, some plates and cruddy pans. The coffee maker had to be manipulated to produce coffee. The photos on website are old and need updated. No pool table and little to do during day.

    Extremely rude staff. No security at night when it was advertised as 24/7 reception. I had to pound on the door for 20 mins to get back in and it was dangerous out. They are obsessed with cash and will pretend like something is wrong with your credit card (even if it’s worked perfectly fine in 50+ Previous credit card transactions) so you can pay them in cash. And they will lock the door on you until you do so. I’ve stayed in dozens of hostels throughout Colombia. This is easily the worst.

    I have almost never felt this uncomfortable in a hostel. On the mattress there was dust and when I inspected it the staff just exclaimed: “it’s clean!” While it obviously wasn’t. When I sat down it felt and sounded like there was an additional plastic cover under the sheet. In the morning at least one of the two showers on my floor didn’t work (the second bathroom was taken). So glad I only stayed for one night and didn’t spend much time there.

    The service is under all criticism, the staff are bad people who only check on you whenever possible, the money actually listed is not the money the place takes. Even if the location is great it's just not worth getting close to this place! Shocking atmosphere
