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...

The owner was very warm hearted and we immediately felt like at home. The hostel is very clean and the breakfast was great. A good hostel for a cheap price! We can totally recommend this hostel and had a great time.

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...

The Yellow House Hostel does a very good job of being what it says it is...a small, clean, secure, quiet, no-party budget option in a good neighborhood just a couple blocks from the Estacion Floresta Metro stop. Vince, the energetic French expat owner, delegates many of the daily hostel tasks (i.e. breakfast prep, laundry, front door watch) to a few...

Nice place in a quiet residential zone for a quiet stay away from the touristy, overpriced, noisy Poblado party district. The breakfast is very good I heard (since I only tried the cooked omelette). The dorm is depressing compared to the rest of the other rooms. Quite near the metro and supermarket. Stayed there April 2014.

Nice place if you want a quiet stay in Medellin, away from touristy, overpriced and noisy Poblado.The owner and the staff are very cool, it is clean, wifi works well, the breakfast is very good, fresh fruits, omelet, bread, good jam, real butter and coffee. Another shower would have been great but it is ok, the dorm has nothing special...

The good: excellent breakfast and employees, very close to metro, inexpensive privates. The bad: no bar or tvs ensuite as advertised, not much nearby, very hard bed! Ok stay but probably would stay in a different part of the city next time.

Excellent breakfast (fresh juice, coffee, eggs, bread, and fruit), great location in a peaceful neighborhood next to the metro (but close to restaurants etc.), and friendly, helpful hosts (including proprietor Vince, who shared with us some of his awesome French quiche, and others). Nice peaceful and friendly atmosphere, with two great hostel dogs. The metal bunk beds in the 6...
