    could'nt say enough how much I love this place. I left for a day and then came straight back. This is probably the best place I have ever stayed, the warmth of the staff and owner is unmatchable

    Not one single thing to say I would change about this place.

    The location and the staff is the best part about this place! And having free Netflix and a delicious breakfast just makes it better.

    The rooms are a bit small and because of the location there can be a bit of noise in the weekends but nothing serious.

    Nice atmosphere. Not too loud. The staff are amazingly kind. They really made me feel at home. Also there is an adorable doggie living there. Breakfast is one of the best I've had during my trip and made with love. Nice common area with huge TV; Spotify and Netflix for your chill-out moments. Showers are warm too. There's some oil and spices in the kitchen. Highly recommend this place!

    It is a bit of a walk to the metro station or bus terminal. But if you want to stay in the touristy Poblado area you'll be fine. Lockers are a bit small.

    The hostel is perfectly located in El Poblado with 15 min walk to the Metro (20 min when you go back as it is uphill). Surprisingly quiet with all the restaurants and bars so close by. Incredibly welcoming and kind staff, which do not all speak English, but all very helpful greeting you each day with a smile. I received a welcome drink upon arrival, and a little later on a half hour briefing on what activities, sights etc. are within Medellin and nearby areas from the owner Alejandro with also the possibilty to ask questions on any particular things I wanted to see/do/visit. Common areas has TV/Netflix/Spotify where you can socialise with others. Another highlight are their awesome Colombian breakfast being served each day. The entire hostel is very clean including the shared bathrooms, and there are hot showers. Also a big kitchen available if you want to make other meals yourself. Quick laundry service. I stayed in a private room with its own TV/ Netflix and as well as a big fan to keep cool at night. This is a place I will stay at again if I go back to Medellin.

    The place is not easy to locate from the street if you don't know where to look. Not being able to pay by credit card or some other electronic form like PayPal etc. The lack of power outlets and periodically no wifi coverage in my room was annoying. When I visited there were some restoration going on, but I wasn't very affected by it.
