NICE, clean, fun, and with all the possibilities to enjoy my time in any hour during the day and night time. Nice people attending. For me, the best hostel I ever stayed. I can stay in the pool, play ping pong against the owner and beat him. Play futbol, volley and basket... Read, watch a lot of movies, cook and...

Hostel staff are friendly, the pool is a good break from the heat and the bar is a nice place to hang out and meet people. It is slightly farther away from some of the central parks than the other hostels, but the nearby hubs are no more than a 15min walk and there´s easy access to the metro.

Great stay here! Good vibes, easy to meet people hanging around the pool and the oddly Irish-themed bar. A social place in walking distance of some good sights (metro and large supermarket close by), just a little outside of the most cringe-worthy gringo-heavy areas of Poblado. Also, the do-it-yourself egg breakfast is a nice touch - if you can manage...

It is a very nice place where you can meet people from all parts of the world! You can start the party at the hostel and then go to the nightlife in Medellin! I really recommend this Hostel! It is also cheap ànd you have wifi free and other activities for free (like swimming pool, billiards, table tennis)

This hostel is really laid back. There's a pool to jump in for a swim. There are hammocks to nap in the shade. There's plenty of space. It's not so much a party hostel since everything shuts down at midnight, but you can just walk on down to the Poblado clubbing district. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Pluses: Front desk staff: Helpful & friendly. They have 3 sweetheart Labrador dogs. A major plus if you like dogs. The pool is clean but not heated. It was still comfortable for lap swimming, though only about 11 meters long. Cons: Smoke is everywhere. While not allowed indoors, guests and staff alike are commonly smoking in the doorway or outside...

We stayed here for 2 nights and met lots of great people. If you want to party in Medellin with fun people, this is the place for you. Don't try and sleep until 12 though as the music is on in the bar.

We were here between christmas and NYE. It is a nice hostel with a good atmosphere. Nevertheless the most people are young and in the party mood. The bar closes at 12 and it is quiet around 12/1 a clock but people do come home from partying till 7 in the morning. If you want to go party (with all...
