After 4 days, I was anxious to leave since I was solo and I felt it was time to move on. Thankfully, I couldn't find another room so I stayed... More

This hostel was in a very nice neighborhood/area, close to nice restaurants, shops, supermarkets and cinemas. When I stayed in this hostel they where painting walls and doors, so it was a little bit messy at the moment, but I'm sure it will be nice at the end.

I've stayed at 3 different hostels in Medellin and this hostel is by far the most fun I've had! The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly! Anny and Lilly are a great help.

The guy who owns the place is a nice guy and it seemed that he tried to make sure people were enjoying themselves. One of the guys who worked at the front desk was very incompetent.

Hi, Sorry you didn't enjoy your experience in our hostel. The dorms are only 6 beds per room as we prefer the dorms not to be so big. Though, each dorm has a window (whether it's a large or small one). The private room you stayed in had a normal bed. The "extra" mattress in your room is there as... More
