We were very excited to get to Medellin for five days but we had such a bad experience in this hostel that already on the second day we wanted to leave. We have stayed in different hostels all around Colombia, in both private rooms and dorms, and though some were better than others we never had all the problems we had in Arcadia.
Firstly, we got a private double room, but the bed was incredibly small and there is basically no windows, although the room was cheap, so we didn't mind. Secondly, the bathroom window opens fully from the outside, so one day a guy opened it on us while we were in there. Finally the room is just beside the kitchen, with people cooking until 3am and then they are cleaning the kitchen and preparing pancakes from 6am, so you only really get less than three hours of sleep and the smell of food was everywhere in the room and on our clothes. When we complained about the noise one of the permanent staff at the reception very rudely said that people can cook at any time they want.
Finally, the same guy tried to overcharge us. He said that the deposit we paid trough the booking platform we used didn't count because it goes to the booking platform and we had to pay the whole amount again. Later we found out that is happened to two more people trying same morning. We eventually had to contact the booking site and talk to another guy at the reception to make them confirm we were right.
The only positive sides were that the accomodation was very cheap and the rest of the staff were very nice and helped us organising our tours.
I wouldn't recommend staying here!

I really enjoyed staying at Arcadia! We stayed there for 5 nights and it was the best. Great price and great location as it is a short 5 minute walk to all the restaurants and clubs. Plenty of chill out areas to relax or socialize. The Greek BBQ was really good and the Salsa was fun too! Great, hot showers, nice beds with power plugs at each bed. The rooms and common areas are really nice. The staff and owner were really amazing! So friendly, funny and helpful and really made our stay a 10/10. We have recommended it to a lot of friends and they have all had the same great experience. If I ever return to Medellin I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Thanks so much to the owner and staff for making our time in Medellin unforgettable :)

I originally wanted to stay at Arcadia for 2 nights but the hostel was so good so i stayed for 5!! It is clean and well organized. They have electrical sockets next to every bed and lockers for your valuables. Also Greek BBQ every Sunday. I would happily stay there again.

The hostel is really nice, helpful staff, nice atmosphere, It's in quite a quiet area, but still very close to the restaurants and bars of Poblado. Has a great hot shower! Would definitely stay here again.

As one of the cheaper hostels in Medellin it is not surprising that the dorm room itself is quite cramped (triple layer bunkbeds). However, the hostel has really nice communal areas for socialising, cooking or just chilling and watching TV. The staff are very helpful and the location is ideal (just a few minutes from the main strip in el poblado).
