I stayed at Arcadia for over a week, for several reasons. The location is good close to the main nightlife, the staff is friendly and nice, and there´s a nice atmosphere throughout the hostel. If you want to relax and watch a movie you can do that, as well as share some beers with the other guests in the common...

We ended up staying here four nights! Great hostel, great staff, great location! We stayed in a dorm room because they had a double bed for both of us-for cheaper than two beds. Also, the owner has made up business cards with very helpful maps on the back-brilliant! It was clean, friendly and fairly priced.

We stayed here for 4 nights and the staff and owner here are great. I would recommend staying in the 11 bed dorm, Olympus, which has its own balcony. We had an issue while we were staying there and the staff couldn't have done more. It's a 10 walk to the main drinking area which is nice because the streets...

This place isn't just comfy, with great beds and wide spaces to meet new people, but its staff is amazing. The owner Spyro, Alejo, Max, and Julian made sure everyone was having a good time. Being from Colombia and never have been in Medellín before was definitely made better by staying at Arcadia. There is a whole Greek theme to...

Arcadia was a lovely, well run hostel and I really enjoyed my time here. It is a 10 min walk to the good night life and 25 min walk to the metro. The pancakes were disgusting (they use maize flower for the batter) but coffee was good. It's the kind of place you stay for way longer than expected because...

The staff are just awesome, especially Diana, so friendly and ordered some food for us to be delivered just a lovely girl ... Rooms were great, showers were awesome too .. The brownies at the counter are 2,000 Colombian and are homemade yummy ones ... They try to get you lively but also can be a quiet hostel all round...

Arcadia is a great hostel on the edge of the Poblado area. It's a close walk to Parque Lleras, for great weekend nights, but enough away that it's a relaxing environment. This makes for a perfect balance of a great place to meet people while not being a crazy party hostel. The staff is fantastic and there is a great...

I had a lot of fun in Arcadia, arriving on a Friday night and started with a free salsa lesson with a linda Colombiana, met a lot of fun and interesting people with whom I went to party at Parque Lleras,which is only a short walk away (5min). The common area is super comfy with a nice terrace, big living...
