Great rooms, lots of common areas for socializing and helpful staff. There are a couple popular tourist neighbourhoods with hostels in Medellin. This hostel is super close to the Suramericana area (Metro stop and grocery store) which was fantastic! But I think we would stay in the Pablado area next time, as there are many more pubs and restaurants there.

Spent one night in a private room. Room and shared bathroom were clean, though I didn't appreciate a guest hanging up his underwear in the bathroom to dry (I'm glad you're comfortable and free with your unmentionables, but I don't want to see it, thanks!) The facilities looked great, including the pool and the kitchen. Staff was friendly enough. There didn't seem to be too many people there but again, I was just using this place to sleep for the night.

Very friendly and helpful staff, especially Ana. 61 Prado Guesthouse is a nice and cool hostel; it's a pleasure to stay there. The single room was big enough, breakfast was fine and using their WiFi was no problem at all. Furtheron it's close to the metro and 4 attractions. Last but not least it is - compared to others - quite economical.
