“Nice hostel, nice staff”

Rating: 4 Reviewed on January 15, 2018

Went there for new year. Felt a little bit old (32) comparing to the other guests but still ok. Nice staff, helps you with everything. Little bit of a party hostel. But it was New Years so don’t know...


The hostel is an eight minutes walk from the Metro Station Poblado. A map on the website offers help in reaching the place as well as suggested ways of arrival from local airports and bus stations. Taxi prices in Medellin are very reasonable.
