Disliked: I have no complaints about this hostel. and no, i don't work for them

11 June 2010 Mikal would recommend this property

Liked: Great place to stay! Popular with good atmosphere without being a party wreck. Giant kitchen with microwave, high speed internet, WIFI and plenty of terminals. BBQ every Sunday which looked generous (for 12000). Plenty of lockers in public area which makes them more secure - you need your own lock. Wide screen TV, beer on sale. Near to metro and Exito supermarket. Also has Mega Pizza nearby. Good value laundry - 10000 for a load. Ignore nearby laundromat which is 8000 per kilo! Very safe area. If I was going back to Medellin, this is where I would stay again.

Disliked: Mikal left no negative feedback.
