Ok! I'm going to try and give this place an honest and fair review. Let's start with facilities and location! The rooms, bathrooms and breakfast are all very nice, clean and tidy and a fairly standard hostel breaky, (meant to include eggs but didn't happens on two days of our stay) Located in Poblada the fashionable and party part of...

What an amazing place to stay! I was originally skeptical about this place because of the reviews about people losing stuff. But none of that happened to me despite having a macbook pro and an iphone. I stayed in one of the private rooms, and it was amazing! I had my own bathroom, a safe, a TV, fully loaded with...

Great place to stay in Medellin 🌺 Traveling with friends, felt very safe and met great people. The staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating! Only was awake for free breakfast 1x but it was delicious and coffee 24 hrs which was muy importante ☕️The bar was a hotspot, not just for guests, and the drinks were awesome 👏🏼 Highly recommended...

I fell in love with Medellin and stayed in Happy Buddha for two weeks. Its definitely a party hostel and (surprisingly) very clean despite all the parties. I made a lot of friends and everyone there including the staff is very nice. Especially Andres who helped me many times. I will definitely be going back!

PAR-TY!!! I got Buddha-dized. The kitchen was together, so we ate good and cheap too. Couldn’t ask for much more than that. I guess its was worth the lobby wait. We even got more sleep than expect. hah :) zzzzZZZ

I booked 4 nights here and they overbooked my bed for one of the nights I got home after a night out and someone was sleeping in the bed I paid for. Mistakes happen I get that but they REFUSED to refund me for the night they gave away my bed for! They then threatened to kick me out because...

The location of this hostel is in a prime tourist area, where you can step outside the hostel and go to many places to eat, or go to a fancy coffee shop. Very safe area and quick 7 min walk to Parque Llares where all the action and night life happens at night from restaurants to bars, to just drinking...

We didn't stay at the hotel but did go to their bar. Everyone is casual, friendly, and welcoming. They had a green (party) drink - just one is all you needed to get in party mood. Beers, drinks, couches, high-tops, they even have an open room with ping-pong table and other games to the side of the bar. I can...
