Amazing place to be if you want to meet people and experience Medellin - and its nightlife. Its good for socialising, so if you travel alone, you will always find people to do the walking tours, guatape or check out the amazing reaggeton-clubs in Medellin.
Its super clean, the cleaning ladies are here all day and clean especially toilets and showers several times daily.
The staff is amazing and helps you with everything you need - they even practiced my spanish with me :)
The beds are not super comfy, but definitely ok. The kitchen is a little small, but clean and has everything you need - even a mixer for cocktails or guacamole :)

The location is really close to all the main attractions but not in the center of the party-zone so you have quiet nights. A big and cheap "exito"supermarket is right around the corner, so cheap food and drinks are no problem at all. I also like the terrace with all its hammocks...good for relaxing after an exiting day or for recovering from your Medellin-Hangover ;)

The staff thinks they’re the coolest people on earth (they’re not) the room wasn’t clean at all.
For that the price was way to high.
The location of the hostel isn’t that good as it is pretty far (15 Minuten walk) from the other hostels bars and restaurants.

At the start only had 3 nights booked then extended for another 4 nights. We had a private room with private bathroom. The room was at the standard of a nice hotel, very clean.
Friendly vibe throughout and very helpful staff to sort out tours and activities. Safe part of town with food and metro only a short walk away.

I stayed here twice. First time for 2 weeks and also the 2nd time. In the space of 6 weeks ! It is a lovely place to meet people a d the staff are so nice. Everyone remembers your name from day one and are super helpful with anything you ask. The beers are reasonably priced and everyone goes out together in the evening ! Security gate is great and they are strict about who they let in from outside that's not staying there. I felt 100 percent safe. The kitchen is nice although the fridge needs to be cleaned more and could also be upsized with the amount of people staying there. Everything was lovely. Stayed in a dorm and also a private. Both were nice. The private was great and spacious with tv separate bathroom. Thanks for a great stay !

Great location. It’s not in downtown however it’s five minutes walk from th metro which is a few stations to downtown. It’s also a 10-15 minute walk from all the cafes and bars.
Very clean and social. Staff are also excellent and very helpful with information and organising tours!
