Stay: 12/2008 We had a very nice experience when we stayed at this place. The staff was very nice, the room was clean and we even had a small fridge in our room. This is a safe area (Zona Rosa) and you could walk to a restaurant in the area and they had events going on at night. Ohh we...

Pros- good location, clean, rooms nice enough for the price Cons- absolutely terrible service from all but one of the front desk staff & during our stay the place was full of disgusting sex tourists from the US who constantly had prostitutes in the hostel. As mentioned in a previous review the management here seems to think that's ok

The kitchen was very clean and well-stocked with the necessary instruments to prepare and eat food. The rest of the hostel was clean with hot water, free wi-fi and towels provided. There was a t.v. in my dorm, which had five beds, but I had the room to myself, so it wasn´t a problem. The matress was hard as a...

This was my second visit to Medellin and I was recommended this hostel by two friends (a gay male couple) who stayed there. As a gay person myself, I feel you are never sure what kind of welcome you may or may not get, so knowing they shared the room as a couple without any problems was a good recommendation...

Located in the best neighboorhood to stay in Medellín, and with such a nice presentation on the website. But Global Hostel is a little bit run down, and way to noisy (I wonder who's the architect, because you can hear anything your neighbours do, from watching the tv to showering to brushing their teeth). We changed rooms at 3AM, because...

The hostel is overall clean, very well located in the Zona Rosa in the El Poblado neighborhood. While this is a very safe neighbourhood, one has to understand that this is the clubbing/bar district and music from nearby discotheques can be a nuisance to lightsleepers, even with earplugs. The hostel has cozy communal areas and tasteful decoration. However, on a...

Had a lovely time in this very comfortable, clean, and friendly hotel. It is located in the middle of all the action, the famous Zona Rosa of Medellin brimming with fun nightlife, delicious restaurants, shopping areas. Staff very friendly and manager speaks perfect English which was an added amenity. Very helpful when consulted about places to go and things to...

I just got back from a trip to Medellin where I stayed at two hostels and a friends home. The second night (and for several nights after) I stayed at Global Medellin Hostel. The staff was very friendly and it didn't feel like a hostel at all. All rooms are private and I don't know about the others, but mine...
