A really nice hostel with a super friendly stuff. Location is great: close to all the party places, but still quite at night. This hostel has a great atmosphere, you can chill with other people watching TV or drinking some beers at the terrace. Even if you travel alone it's super easy to make new friends here. And Sunday BBQ...

We stayed here two nights in a double room. The 'double' could hardly be considered a room for two people however, the decor made me laugh, a massive painting of a unicorn hanging in the small wall space. The bed was very small and felt like we were sleeping on a plank of wood. There is no breakfast and the...

Really nice atmosphere, great prices and friendly and helpful staff. I had a wonderful stay here for 6 nights. It's in a good location, in a safe neighbourhood, easy to get to the metro (and therefore access everything in the city). Offered free salsa lessons on Fridays which were great fun. Really good showers with excellent pressure and hot water....

I spent 4 nights at this hostel over the Christmas period and had a great time. Staff are friendly and helpful, comfortable beds. Showers are amazing, very hot!! :) I met a good group of people at this hostel and we all went out on Christmas Eve. Free Salsa lessons every Friday night, but unfortunately I was still too hungover...

I only stayed here for a few days in August but when I came back for more time in Medellin in December I knew this was the place I wanted to stay again. The rooms are fantastic... your own washroom in all the dorms!! And the cleaning staff do an amazing job. The kitchen is well equipped, made some amazing...

Arcadia is great hostel. There's everything you need. Breakfast, coffee, hammocks, dvd's, good wifi, hot showers etc. There's an annoying cigarette smell tho. The staff is very nice and helpful (espacially that Belgian guy). They let me store my surfboard for free during my travels in Colombia! Great location too, not on Calle 10 so it's quiet but not far...

Stayed here 2 nights when visiting Medellin. Close to central Poblado neighborhood, a safe area of Medellin. Staff was helpful and receptive. Staff helped me arrange tours and arranged transportation to the airport. Would stay again.

There was a constant stench of cigarettes that we could not escape even in our private room. There is a posted "no smoking" sign on the patio but guests still constantly smoked cigarettes and the staff did not care to enforce the no smoking rule. We kindly asked if they could at least close the door to the patio in...

Unfortunately we were extremely disappointed with this hostel. We were so excited to arrive in Medellin and explore what we could of the city with the few days that we had and our hostel was the only part we didn't enjoy. Upon arrival there was a party happening which would have been fine but even the girl working that helped...

The staff has been very very helpful and welcoming. Very glad with my experience. Stayed in a private room, which was comfortable and had a bathroom. Jay who works at the front desk is great and will help with anything you need!
