My boyfriend and I stayed in this hostel in May for two nights. There were no privates left as it was busy so we slept in the 6 bedroom dorm (which was no problem as its not a party hostel so it was an extremely good nights sleep). From the minute we walked in we were greeted by the owner...

This is a great hostel with the best free breakfast and in a good location. Heads-up it will cost you $15.000 pesos to take a taxi from the south bus terminal and $9.000 from the north bus terminal. The north bus terminal you have the option of taking the Metro, Vince will give you details. Enjoy your stay, I did.

I really enjoyed my time at the Yellow House Hostel. Vincent was very welcoming and so were his two big dogs Badias and Tomas. Tomas thought he was a big bad dog barking at passersby but he was the sweetest dog once you were in the house. And Badias was always lounging around. Vincent made breakfast every morning consisting of...

The place is really nice, quiet and enables travelers to rest far from the party nights. The included breakfast is really good, and tasty ( eggs, coffee, juce, fresh...

There is a 6 bed dorm and 5 privet rooms. A good kitchen with all the necessities and a microwave, very nice bed sheets, laundry,...

We stayed for 4 nights in Medellin and fortunately met a nice crowd at this hostel. Its a bit out of town but quiet and near to a free outdoor swimming pool (passport,speedos and hat required). On the morning after our arrival the owner was not particularly welcoming and aside from giving us a map did little else to advise...

I recommend calling to confirm the availability of space for the duration of your trip. I enjoyed my stay but had to leave earlier than anticipated because of a reservation recieved after my arrival. Vincent was very nice, while Jero was a handful at times. Breakfast was good and included in the price. Fresh fruit and juices changed while eggs...

This is the hostel that every hostel should measure up to! I had an internship in Medellin and was initially planning to stay in Yellow House for a week, then extended my stay up to a month but... loved it so much that I have ended up staying for 2 months! Vincent (the owner) is the best because he really...

Stayed here in February of 2013 when I came back to visit Colombia. Was a good place for the price in a nice secure area of Medellin. Vincent was great, any problems we had he made it right. He was so cool that after touring other parts of Colombia he allowed me to come back and take a shower before...
