This place has a tv room, a pool and a bar with ping pong and snooker so it was a fun place to hang out. It was dead when we stayed so they didn't bother to open the bar and you had to buy beers in reception, which wasn't a big deal. For breakfast they leave out eggs and bread...

I had a great time staying at the Pit Stop hostel. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and always gave me great advice on what adventures I should go on in Medellin. It's a great location and a quick walk to all of the restaurants and bars.

However the owner is making so big changes to save money and you can feel it. There used to be a bar which was kind of essential...

We stayed here for a week just to chill for a bit. Has loads of things to do - pool, pool table, movie room, basketball court, bar. Loads of bathrooms as well. The staff are great - especially Juan. The only improvement could be the kitchen utensils. A bit well used.

We didn't plan to stay here but got a cancellation from another hostel and were moved here. Decent breakfast with as many eggs as you want. Good pool with hammocks. The staff were helpful and got us tickets to both Medellin and Nacional football matches and also got us onto a tour at short notice. Only downside was the confusing...

Spent a few nights in Medellín and stayed at the Pit Stop Hostel. It was close to everything.
