One of the best hostels I have ever stayed at, feels like you in a hotel deffinetly not a hostel. Free breakfast every morning which includes eggs and arepa. Perfect location right in the middle of Poblado area. Not a party hostel, just an awesome place to relax and meet people. Daniel, who works the front desk, is very helpful...

The place was just perfect for what we were looking for. It was in a good spot, Poblado is a great area for people visiting Medellin, lots of restos and shops. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The hostel is clean and offers a home cooked free breakfast. If you're looking for a party hostel, this isn't it. It's a...

After a rough start with geo hostel they messed up our reservation and helped us book a couple nights elsewhere and returned our deposit which was very good of them. We decided to give them another chance later in our stay in Medellin. The hostel was very nice and clean and you can't beat the location. The staff were always...

This is not a hostel experience. The layout is minimalist and sparse making it hard to socialise due to the lack of a proper common area The place feels like a clinic and has little to no atmosphere. Reception was disinterested when I tried to ask for things to do. They told me I could walk down a street. No...

Super disappointed in this hostel. The room had no air conditioning and only a portable fan. EVerything was damp in the room. The Bathroom has a broken shower head and was filthy. In addition the wifi only worked in the lobby and not in any of the rooms

We were very disappointed in this hostel. We were looking for an alternative for the known party hostels (e.g. Happy buddha) - a hostel with both atmosphere and night rest. We were drawn by the story on the website About the founding story. Unfortunelately we found nothing of the love and creativity as stated in this founding story. Perfectly located...

We had an amazing time here - right in the heart of Medellin nightlife. The staff were friendly and the top floor has lots of sofas, TV, video console and table tennis to chill out. The cleanest hostel we stayed in across whole of South America. We stayed in a private room but ours was above reception and right on...

Geo Hostel is great. It's clean, good comfortable beds, in a great location but quiet, isn't a party hostel but it's still easy to meet people. The staff are very friendly. I stayed here twice and will definitely stay again if I return to Medellin. Only minor negative is they need more power outlets.

We stayed in the double suite Saturday-Wednesday. Very nice room and common areas. Clean and safe. Great location. Spotty wifi but avail in the room. Hot water. AC. Negative is the street noise! The windows are glass and don't actually fully close. You can literally hear every single thing on the streets. There is a restaurant/bar across and street and...
