This made our trip. After the horrors of Cartagena we found a helpful lady by the name of Natalie who provided excellent service and even adjusted our trip for us to include a lovely town named Salento that we had previously not heard of! Cited close to the main square and with lots of local amenities. Highly recommended.

Private room on the street side with private bath. However, tidy and quiet. No problems, good help with activities. Well located next to a supermarket (small exito) and conveniently close to the Parque Lleras. It is a quiet place, so don't expect to have a party going on there. Which may be a good thing.

Feels like a prison. Ok to sleep so long as you have masacistic tendencies and enjoy hard beds.

Owner of hostel is very nice but the older female staff member is quite rude. We booked a private room and the bed in the room was hard as a rock. I mean so hard i had a sore back when i woke up in the morning. The rooms are also very basic with no side table lights or anything....

It's in the poblado area so you can hang out in the parque lleras or in the other party hostels, probably the place to land in when you just got to medellin for a few days before moving deeper in the real city life. Nice staff, very clean, quiet , safe, a good hostel

As my first pick was overbooked I ended up staying here. I had my private room. The nights are really quiet (no cars on the street, no party in the hostel). Its location allows you to walk to the clubs, restaurants and a small supermarket all within a couple of minutes. The owner is super sweet and speaks fluent Spanish...

My girlfriend and I stayed in this Hostel for a week. We wanted a quite and clean place near to the Parque Lleras, the party district in Medellín, and this was a very good option. We stayed in a private room with private toilette. The room was very tidy and the whole hostel was quite. Staff was friendly. A really...

Great location, only a 5 minute stroll to a bunch of restaurants, bars and discos for nightlife, but secluded enough to get a quiet nights rest. Only a ten minute walk to the el to see the rest of Medellin. I stayed for 4 days, flew to Cartegena, and then returned for 3 nights. If you want a frat house...

Staying in the zona rosa (popular going-out area) of Medellin isn't cheap, but this place was a lot of money for few benefits. Four of us (2 couples) had to share a room with a double bed and a bunk bed because anything else was way out of our price range. We paid 100,000 COP (about $50, very expensive for...
