    Toll ausgestattete Küche auf einer schönen Dachterasse. Super nette Mitarbeiter, wir durften unseren Bordingpass an der Rezeption drucken. Gut gelegen Restaurants und Cafes direkt vor der Tür. Supermarkt und Metrohaltestelle ebenfalls sehr nah. Die angebotene Free Walkingtour ist absolut empfehlenswert. Einfaches aber gutes Frühstück es gab 3 Optionen.

    Sehr gut gelegen, da man schnell an der Metrostation ist und zugleich innerhalb weniger Minuten alle Restaurants und Bars in Poblado erreicht. Die Mitarbeiter sind sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich! Das einzige Manko war, dass es doch recht laut ist: nachts/ früh morgens unterhalten sich Leute,die vom Feiern kommen, sehr laut, früh morgens wird sich auch sonst nicht um Ruhe bemüht. Aber das muss man vllt in einer Großstadt wie Medellín einfach so hinnehmen. Alles in allem: empfehlenswert!

    Frühstück war super lecker und im Preis inbegriffen. Die Lage ist top, Metro nicht weit entfernt und in gute Restaurants kann man direkt reinfallen. Definitiv das beste Viertel in Medellín.

    Super Lage (direkt an der Metrostation.) Nette und hilfsbereite Mitarbeiter. Leider haben die Mehrbettzimmer keine Fenster, kann also ziemlich stickig werden.

    Our dorm was really smelly, there was no window, just a fan - like old sweat. Everything looked a bit messy and not really clean. The staff is really friendly though. Breakfast was alright. On our last morning there were people having an after-hour on the rooftop, drinking, partying and listening to their own music really loudly. Everybody who doesn’t want to join them was a „boring idiot“. One of the guys was a friend of hostel staff, so we were really disappointed that they let this happen.
