Casa Arapaima

Calle 78 Sur # 40-210 House 101


The hostel is set in a large stand alone brick house tucked away stream side in one of the most unique locations in Medellin/Sabaneta. The property is a peaceful and extraordinarily quiet jungle oasis in the city. The Medellin Metro-Rail service is only an 8 minute walk away and metro bus service is available at the top of our driveway. Our gorgeously appointed rooms all have, opening windows and high speed WiFi and come with a delicious breakfast. Our bird feeders attract an incredible number of birds and the stream is a natural corridor for coatimundis, posums and ocelots.

Casa Arapaima is a little tropical paradise tucked away beside a stream and surrounded by lush trees and bamboo. It’s an oasis of peace and nature that is still only three minutes walk away from shopping, bars and restaurants and a ten minute walk to the Medellin Metro Train Station. Metro busses also run every few minutes on the street at the top of the driveway so the whole city of Medellin is easily accessed from our peaceful and relaxing refuge. The property is gated and the large red brick house is out of site of the street and set in perhaps the safest neighborhoods in Medellin.

If you are at the International Airport José María Córdova and are coming in a taxi or Uber, just give them this address: Calle 78 Sur # 40 - 210, Sabaneta. If you are getting here on the Metro, go towards La Estrella station and get off there. When you're walking out of the station, take the bridge on your left and get on an integrated bus route that says "Cañaveralejo". Tell the driver to drop you off at Parques de San Remo, which is an apartment building across from Casa Arapaima. Take into account that you need a Metro card to do this, as Metro buses are now equipped with the same system as the Metro itself. But don't panic, you can get it at any Metro ticket booth. Ask for "Al portador" card if you don't want to get your personalized Metro card (which you can get at Niquía, San Antonio, Itagüí and San Javier stations from Monday to Friday, 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., or Saturdays, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m,. Metro card is called "Cívica" and you only need your passport or any valid ID with your information in it).

Ubers are equipped with Waze or Google Maps. Tell them to take you to daycare (guardería) "Mi Canguro Feliz" (or type in the name on you app). Casa Arapaima is right next to it.


If a reservation is cancelled within 12 hours before arrival, costumer will be charged the price of one night in the room/bed he had booked.
