A very nice hostel in a quiet residential neighborhood. I rented a private room with an en suite bath for a very reasonable rate. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The French owner speaks English very well and cooks a very nice free breakfast every morning. Highly recommended for those looking for an alternative to party hostels in El... More

The best hostel for so far. Especially Egidio, Beatriz and their family including the two cutest (and most lazy) dogs who made our stay from 9 nights just perfect. It feld like we were a part of their family. It is also close to the metrostation, supermarket and a good italian restaurant. (Ask the hostel for the name)

The owner was very warm hearted and we immediately felt like at home. The hostel is very clean and the breakfast was great. A good hostel for a cheap price! We can totally recommend this hostel and had a great time.

To start, the positives: - The hostel is set in a safe neighbourhood a stones throw from the nearest metro. - Communal areas nice - Good WiFi - Cheaper than other places - Two nice dogs Negatives: - Disinterested staff.

Positives: Cheap Safe location Near metro statio Good for smokers Negatives: Our private room was missing a window, which was near the outdoor sitting area so our room consistently smelt like smoke. Hard to cook food as there was always dishes unwashed and people in the kitchen Our room was connected by a single door to another private room so... More

The Yellow House Hostel does a very good job of being what it says it is...a small, clean, secure, quiet, no-party budget option in a good neighborhood just a couple blocks from the Estacion Floresta Metro stop. Vince, the energetic French expat owner, delegates many of the daily hostel tasks (i.e. breakfast prep, laundry, front door watch) to a few... More

Nice place in a quiet residential zone for a quiet stay away from the touristy, overpriced, noisy Poblado party district. The breakfast is very good I heard (since I only tried the cooked omelette). The dorm is depressing compared to the rest of the other rooms. Quite near the metro and supermarket. Stayed there April 2014.

Nice place if you want a quiet stay in Medellin, away from touristy, overpriced and noisy Poblado.The owner and the staff are very cool, it is clean, wifi works well, the breakfast is very good, fresh fruits, omelet, bread, good jam, real butter and coffee.
