The private room is like a hotel, it is very clean and fancy, it has a pretty roof as a social area and the breakfast it is really good (it consist of a typical Arepa with eggs and coffee or tea). The personal is helpful but not very cheerful, and also I would chance the tvs and get a bigger... More

After a loud hostel in Cartagena, I was ready for some quiet. Geo Hostel was a little TOO quiet for my taste, but I can't complain too much. The wifi wasn't that great, especially on the computers available upstairs, but breakfast was free and tasty, the hostel was very modern looking and clean, and had a perfect location (close to...

I really liked Geo Hostel. It was clean and comfortable. The staff were extremely helpful and kind. A good, free breakfast. The rooms were pretty warm but they had fans to help with that. Good location. Nice patio. It's not a party hostel, but there were always people who wanted to go out and explore so it never felt dull... More

This is a brand new hostel in the perfect location. The beds and pillows are the most comfortable in 4 months of travelling and the bathroom is the cleanest most modern that I have come across on this trip. Most importantly the staff are pleasant and extremely honest! I left a pair of $400 headphones behind by accident and when... More

I am not much of a hostel person nowadays so if you enjoy the hustle and bustle of hostel life take my word with a grain of salt. It is your typical, run of the mill, latin american hostel for the most part. My issues with it stemmed from many of the comments advertising it as a quiet place to... More

Stayed for two weeks at Geo and had a great time. It has comfy beds, burning hot showers, a kitchen with all the utensils you would need and a fridge which dispenses ice and drinking water. The cleaning staff are excellent and work really hard to ensure the place is spotless. Breakfast is included. This is not a party hostel... More

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed at, feels like you in a hotel deffinetly not a hostel. Free breakfast every morning which includes eggs and arepa. Perfect location right in the middle of Poblado area. Not a party hostel, just an awesome place to relax and meet people. Daniel, who works the front desk, is very helpful... More

The place was just perfect for what we were looking for. It was in a good spot, Poblado is a great area for people visiting Medellin, lots of restos and shops. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The hostel is clean and offers a home cooked free breakfast. If you're looking for a party hostel, this isn't it. It's a... More
