Great spot to spend your time while in Medellin. El Pablado is the spot and this is the hostel. I checked out at least 5 other hostels in person, and ended up staying here for 2 weeks (where does the time go?). Let's review shall we?
-Location: prime time Pablado. And this place has 2 sweet decks - 1st level and the rooftop which is a gem and rarely used. Beat the lazy hippies and get up to the top, you're welcome.
-Great staff! Despite any occasional negative petty review of the staff (a few are hilariously off-target), they are absolutely great. They have a good sense of humor so maybe some people can't hang. They are incredibly cheerful, helpful and accommodating. For example, they will order you pizza, set up activities, and order you taxis. Whatever they can do they will hook you up. Props to them!
-WiFi: works most of the time, even in the rooms and rooftop. If not, an occasional reset is all you need.
-Clean: clean bathrooms, and rooms are well maintained. The service staff is in good spirits and have some good energy.
-Nice theater room and pool table.
-Better than staying at Happy Buddah - just go to the next street and party there. Wouldn't want to sleep there.
-Great fresh fruit/juice stand across the street: perfect for your daily hangover.
- Free Wifi
- Free Parking
