Fused with my babe in the private room. Vincent, the owner, was an excellent host with a voice better than Sting's. It was relaxed hostel in a good location away from the Poblado mess. I would definitely come back for the great breakfast, great dogs and great place!

Its super chill, great place to escape from the chaos that is Colombia. Great simple breakfast every morning (Eggs, toast, juice, delicious coffee). Obviously you can...

A very nice hostel in a quiet residential neighborhood. I rented a private room with an en suite bath for a very reasonable rate. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The French owner speaks English very well and cooks a very nice free breakfast every morning. Highly recommended for those looking for an alternative to party hostels in El...

The best hostel for so far. Especially Egidio, Beatriz and their family including the two cutest (and most lazy) dogs who made our stay from 9 nights just perfect. It feld like we were a part of their family. It is also close to the metrostation, supermarket and a good italian restaurant. (Ask the hostel for the name)

Everyone working in the hostel is super friendly! I arrived with a flu, and the staff was very helpful and concerned towards me. Quiet place in a very nice and calm neighbourhood, so just what you need in a big city. Very close to metro and a lot of other shops and restaurants, good wifi and decent breakfast. Reccomend the...

The hostel is a little outside the center but very well connected by metro, the metro station is just around the corner. Hostel Yellow House is located in a quiet area. But near by re some cafes/restaurants. The room was ok, the beds were clean. The bathroom was quite old and moodie just as the kitchen. But the owners are...

Stayed in a private room for three nights with private bathroom. A number of basics let the place down. To start, the positives: - The hostel is set in a safe neighbourhood a stones throw from the nearest metro. - Communal areas nice - Good WiFi - Cheaper than other places - Two nice dogs Negatives: - Disinterested staff. Little...

Positives: Cheap Safe location Near metro statio Good for smokers Negatives: Our private room was missing a window, which was near the outdoor sitting area so our room consistently smelt like smoke. Hard to cook food as there was always dishes unwashed and people in the kitchen Our room was connected by a single door to another private room so...
