Very impressed with our stay; the staff were both friendly and helpful. In addition, we received prompt answers to all our queries via email before arriving, which was hugely appreciated due to this being our first trip to Colombia. In fact, we stayed twice (at the beginning and end of our trip) - that should give you an idea of...

Really enjoyed our stay at Palm tree however was quite difficult to meet people. No one seemed to mingle which was a little sad for an hostel. Pilar and Daniella (hope I spelt these correctly) were great also and really pushed us to practice our Spanish. Room was comfortable size and bathrooms were good also. Wifi was great.

So you rock up, and you're greeted by a super friendly, smiling staff member (in our case it was Pilar, and Luz, and later Daniela), they chat to you and show you around, and then you can either relax in one of the hammocks, chill out in the little upstairs open air terrace thingo and watch thunderstorms, or hide from...

Palm tree was a lovely spot to crash in Medellin. If you are looking for a friendly, welcoming hostel in a quieter part of the city, you won't be disappointed. The hostel is in a quiet neighborhood that seems mostly residential. A number of good restaurants are around, and it is located only a few minutes' walk to the metro,...
