What I liked the most about this hostel was definitely its location. It's in El Poblado which is a really nice neighbourhood in Medellín, and it is easy to find transport to anywhere. Also, the women who work there are really nice and friendly, they were really helpful and caring since we didn't know the city. I stayed in Saman...

Stayed here 3 nights. The owner was there when we checked in and was really helpful, going through maps of the city, recommending places to visit, areas to be aware in etc. The room was private with shared bathroom. The room was v small but did the job. The fan was needed as the room opened onto courtyard-type area and...

I came here looking for a few nights urban 'rest', so I invested in one of the single rooms. Admittedly, I know this is located in El Poblado - which is hardly the quiestest of locations in Medellin. That said, the single rooms are located at the far end of the hostel - right by where the staff work -...
