Liked: I urge everyone to take advantage of this delightful hostel before it disappears in 2015 to be replaced by hotel/condos. It´s in a great neighborhood, easy walk to and from Metro, supermarket around the corner, situated between 2 great eateries (burgers and chicken wings). Individual rooms as well as dorms. The pool, coffee, tv, wifi, kitchen is available 24-7. Forget Bogota and have a super time in Medellin! When I first travelled in Europe after college..in the 1970´s i tried and didn´t appreciate hostels. Now at 66 I´m loving this!

Disliked: Common room furniture is a bit worn.....but inviting and nonetheless comfy. Having a hammock to swing/nap in would be just too heavenly and I´d probably never get out of it to see and do things.

Liked: Good location a few blocks from the zona rosa (though not right in the heat of everything), the man who I assumed was the owner was very sweet, great showers

Disliked: Beds were extremely uncomfortable (a mattress pad on top of a ciment ledge), lacked any character and was pretty tough to meet people, the young girl working at reception most afternoons was very rude and not helpful, didn't feel completely secure since the whole place was open and there was no door to the 14 person room (though they did have lockers). Wouldn't stay here again.

Liked: RAM Hostel is absolutely great, definitely one of the best hostels I've stayed at, if not the best. The place is huge, very clean, and very beautiful. The staff is amazing and very helpful. The location is great for nightlife (located near Lleras Park) and for transportation (close to El Poblado). There's a supermarket across the street.

Disliked: The atmosphere when I was staying there was not the best since there were some hardcore partiers (I was there for work and didn't really enjoy having breakfast in a dining room full of leftover beer bottles), then there was a super noisy group of kids. But I guess the staff can't really control any of that.

Liked: Great place, with a pool and a good atmosphere. It is a nice change from the dorms. Very friendly staff and a five minute walk to the main Zona Rosa area.

Disliked: Wifi does not reach to the rooms, or at least my room. There is some construction happening on the adjacent property so you will occasionally hear some noise but it is nothing significant.
