Liked: Great movie room for chilling in and the showers are super hot.Not far from a metro station, supermarket and restaurants.

Disliked: The kitchen closes at 10pm which meant that people who had cooked late couldn't get in to clean up meaning it was a pig sty the next morning for breakfast. Also it's a huge kitchen with nothing in it. It's not very well set up to be used by so many people. The bar runs a tab system so we kept a tally of all the drinks we ordered. When we went to pay on check out the balance was different to ours and when questioned the reception girl argued it with us. Turned out they had entered the wrong price for some drinks and the happy hour prices were wrong. Just keep this in mind if you plan to stay here.

Liked: Perfect, this is a massive palace that's turned into a hostel. Pool, bar, tv-room with a million films where we watched the Euro's, nice dorm with spacious bathroom, everything cleaned daily. The perfect place to stay in Medellin.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Research your room before you book it. We booked a 4 bed dorm, that it was but it was connected to a 12 bed dorm essentially making it a 16 bed dorm. It was also directly above the bar which is really loud. The floors have no insulation so you can hear everything from downstairs.

Disliked: Really loud

Liked: The location was good, the beds good and shower was not bad either. Good basketball court too.

Disliked: I imagine this is actually not really the fault of the hostel but I experienced a depressing atmosphere, mainly down to people who enjoyed staying for months on end enjoying drugs. Not my cup of tea but if it's yours then you will love it.

Liked: We stayed at pitstop for over a week and had such an amazing time. The staff are super friendly and helpful. Diana in particular is a star and genuinely made our stay at pitstop! Not only was pitstop ace but Medellin was as well.

Disliked: Dont have a bad word to say!
