    Er heerst een relaxte sfeer in het hostel. Met allemaal knusse zithoekjes en een fijn dakterras. De receptionisten waren allemaal vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Alle faciliteiten redelijk basic, maar alles werkte en het was schoon. En gelegen in de gezellige wijk Poblado. Een absolute aanrader voor als je de stad een paar dagen bezoekt!

    Nice, friendly hostel. Double room was nice and clean, great roof terrace with proper kitchen. Vibe in the hostel was good, though not the most vibrant part of El poblado. Look for the local '' street" burritos (Las delicias de la flaca for instance) instead of the overpriced restaurants in this area. All in all, pleasant stay for a fair price: Def recommend.

    Such a nice hostel. Calm atmosphere, very easy to meet travelers on the rooftop, social but not party. Stayed in three different hostels in Medellin and this was the best one. Shout out to David from reception, amazing guy!

    Really cozy hostel, simple but with everything you need and a very relaxed atmosphere. Felt like home! The hostel doesn't organize many things but they have suggestions and I met enough people there to accompany me on adventures in Medellin!

    Perfect hostel if you’re looking for a way to relax on a budget. You don’t meet a lot of other travellers since there’s no central bar area where everybody gathers. Bonus points for David, one of the staff members, which is an extremely funny and helpful guy. Love him!

    Het was vooral een hostel waar men samen komt om boven op t dakterras wat met elkaar te roken. Het ontbijt was prima, echter had de dame in de keuken niet altijd een glimlach omdat ze eerst lang bezig was met het opruimen van alle troep men de avond ervoor had achtergelaten. Daardoor liep het ontbijt uit. Jongens van de receptie wel heel vriendelijk en de kamer was geluiddicht en fijn. Hebben er goed geslapen!

    Nice hostel with an awesome backyard where you can chill in the hammocks or watch tv in the lounch seats. The staff is friendly and the location is on walking distance from the city centre.

    Dorm room was so hot and stuffy during the night (no windows, only one fan), would not recommend to stay here. Staff was super nice tho.

    Na het lezen van de goede recensies besloten we dit hostel te boeken. Het was een enorme tegenvaller! Hoewel personeel, bedden, badkamers en keuken allemaal prima in orde zijn, is er geen énkele sfeer in het hostel. Reizigers zijn erg op zichzelf en er heerst geen sociale vibe. Het hostel organiseert ook geen activiteiten. Wij zijn naar de overkant verhuisd (Los Patio’s), je betaalt iets meer maar dat is het zeker waard!!
