I stayed 5 nights in a single room on the 4th floor. The room came with a queen bed, desk/working space, TV and AC. it was clean, specious and best of all it had rain shower head.
The location is central in el Poblado. Close to the station, Exito (super market) and lots of good places to eat nearby. There's a rooftop bar on the 7th floor and while I didn't hear anything being on the 4th floor, there were nights were people were loud and luckily it didn't last long. They do provide you with a welcome package that has ear plugs and some candy lol.
The building is well thought-out. I'm impressed by how modern, green and spacious this place is.
They do help you book local tours- I booked the communa 13 tour with front desk.They also have nightly activities. I LOVED that this wasn't another party-ra-ra- hostel. It was a very chill space.
My only feedback for mgmt is to include more tours or other activities that brings people together that doesn't involve drinking:)
Off she was to go and teach English in South America, Colombia. We, she couldn't get the hostel close to the location but when we found Los Patios, I thought the reviews couldn't be true. The location was perfect and the building was so new with great options. They really do have salsa lessons and a roof top meeting area (BAR). They offer options to have the guests get together (spanish classes) and the different room options (single, double, quad, female and male) make for meeting lots of travelers. She told me it was really fun and the location was wonderful.
This hostel is amazing. Excellent location. Easy to grab Uber/taxi here. They don't have a restaurant inside which was a bit of a letdown for breakfast, but there are eateries nearby. The rooms are fantastic. There is a privacy curtain, a little built-in shelf for holding small items, a personal fan and light, and comfortable mattress. The room had a nice and cool temperature with good ventilation. Also, a lovely rooftop view.
This is a large hostel (two buildings) catering to travelers who choose to spend nearly twice the rate as most hostels in Medellin in order to get a bit of luxury with their hostel experience. Nearly everything you can think of for an ideal hostel exists here: activities every day, two rooftop bars, light + shelf + electrical outlet + curtain + fan for each bed, fan for each room, on-site tour booking, kitchen, hot water with towels included, secure luggage storage for before or after check-in and check-out plus lockers (bring your own lock) in dorms. Everything was extremely clean and in great condition. Seemed lots of partiers, but hostel went quiet after midnight (on a weekday). Good place to meet people if you take part in activities, otherwise not a lot of people hanging out in common areas who appear to want to socialize. Extremely close to metro station and huge supermarket (Exito). Immediate area has a ton of hostels plus a short walk beyond reveals lots of restaurants and bars in the Park Llares area. The staff I encountered all speak English really well. Clientele appears to be mostly Europeans, North Americans, Kiwis and Aussies. If you can, take the night bike tour! I'm not sure I got much insight from it, but it was a lot of fun and includes a stop at the most enjoyable arepa shop I visited in Colombia. :)
Very friendly staff. Prices seemed reasonable for a double room with a window. Lots of activities planned - weekend bar crawl was a ton of fun with great turnout and the hostel organized a viewing of the Game of Thrones finale that had easily 40 guests watching. Rooftops have amazing views and great atmosphere. Drinks seemed slightly pricier but not unreasonable given the views.
