This is the best located hostel in Medellin. In one of the safest areas and
nicest tree lined streets with very little traffic. Only eight minutes walk to the
metro only minutes walk to malls, cheap restaurants, bars, clubs, the main
University and anything else you might need.
Around the hostel there are plenty of outside areas to hang out in, something you may not find in other city hostels. There is a big balcony on the second floor outside the TV room with 2 hammocks. There is a reception/ office area which is staffed 24 hours a day. All the workers in the hostel are Colombian students studying at University and working part time in the hostel. Those in the day speak fluent English as well while those working at night normally only speak Spanish. A good opportunity to get some practise in. I'm around every day also to help out with whatever you may need, travel advice, psychiatry help, AA meetings, etc!
A ten minute walk away is the Zona Rosa of Medellin and all the bars and clubs you will need. If you want to go to the cinema, the biggest mall in Medellin is a ten minute walk away. There you can also buy whatever you need and there is a McDonalds if your desperate.
