    Very clean but noisy

    They have a herd of cleaners working all times of the day keeping everything very clean. It's a very busy, very full hostel. Kelvin, the owner, is helpful and full of good tips for visiting the area.
    But we are an older couple who find climbing stairs difficult so our room was on the first floor-- a mistake. Some nights it was crazy noisy, others just moderately so as kids came in drunk at all hours.
    People on the second floor said their rooms were quiet and that's really my only complaint.

    This hostel was clean, well run, friendly and useful staff. The kitchen was large, and clean, plenty of room to cook your evening meals, it had a large living room area with sofas and TV, outside patio and lots of compute to use. The rooms were a good size and clean. It was also in an excellent location.

    We got a double private with en suite bathroom. The bed is allright and the shower is hot in the early morning. Fan and satellite tv provided. Internet not a good signal in room better in common areas. Lots of common areas. Good place to hang out, not a party hostel but can still enjoy a few beers til 1. Good area and close to metro.

    Good hostel,10 minute walk from metro, and short walk to Zona Rosa. Close to large exito supermarket, would recommend. Has ties with Real City tours, so has around 8 spaces for people to join the tour which is really worthwhile

    Nice hostel run by a kiwi guy, great location, good facilities, helpful, friendly staff. Really nice private rooms too with amazing showers. Not a party hostel but really sociable & only 10 mins walk from zona rosa where theres good nightlife.
    They have a local guy start his free walking tour (tips) from there every second day, see below (this is not to be missed)

    Great cosy hostal where you get to meet great other travellers, Kelvin the owner also works here which gives a good vibe to the place and he also cooks up a mean BBQ on Sundays.

    She's 60-ish, maybe reaches 5' on tiptoes, has shoulder length fine hair she can't be bothered to comb, and walks with a stoop. For dinner it's a slice of plain brown bread that she's layered with tuna she's squeezed the sunflower seed oil out of and slices of raw mushroom. And a papaya. Next night it's a pineapple. The whole pineapple--that's it. …

    Feeling a little worse for wear in the morning, I woke up and asked Claire the time. Ten to two she responded which I didn't believe and had to see for myself. I thought this was very strange as I was still absolutely shattered after supposedly 10 hours sleep. It was only when I switched on the TV a few minutes later that I saw it was 9 o'clock, …

    We left Salento early in the morning with fond memories and after around 20 cups of coffee in the 2.5 days, headed for Medellin in the centre of Colombia via a town called Pereira. The bus, which was the best we'd taken in Colombia so far, contained the luxury of wifi and the 5 hour journey passed in no time. It's possible …

I ended up taking the bus from the airport into San Diego and then caught a taxi the rest of the way to the hostel. The first thing that I realized, is that the taxis are on metres here! No questioning the driver on the price before getting in. Medellín is …
