This hostel is absolutely marvellous. It is beautifully decorated. There is every facility you might imagine you want in a hostel. The beds are big and comfortable. It had the most equipped kitchen I have ever seen in a hostel, and everything was new and very well kept. The owner speaks perfect English and is very very nice and helpful. When we were there they had a pizza night which was great. It was a truly wonderful stay.
You would think that a Hostel located in the center of a very busy city would be noisy and old. Picture the opposite of this and you will have a pretty good picture of Hostal Antiguo; an oasis of urban tranquility! Felipe Errazuriz has renovated this historic 1923 home with a mixture of modern luxury while maintaining the original charm of the antique and original tile work to the stained glass panels, creating a unique and timeless architectural achievement. This place would qualify for a spread in Architectural Digest. Remodeled in the fall of 2011, the hostel sports an exquisite interior design that embraces you with comfort. Lush communal spaces let you enjoy the “City of the Eternal Spring” in absolute comfort. The kitchen is fully equipped and boasts every gadget a chef needs to prepare fine cuisine. During our stay we held court over many a fine meal and several cooking contests with guests and Filipe our gracious host! The double beds are brand new with fluffy pillows and crisp cotton sheets. The communal bathrooms are all finished with large walk in showers, fluffy white towels, and natural sunlight shining down upon you during the day, and motion sensor lights at night. The private suite (sleeps four) has a private huge bathroom. The cable television sports hundreds of shows in almost any language can be viewed on the huge flat-screen TV in the media room. Want a nap or to read a book in silence? Just grab the hammock room…it’s waiting for you with its open web of comfort. Want to study, or surf the web on WIFI? Grab a high-back velvet chair in the office and spread out on the wrap around desk. Sunbathing? Lunch alfresco? Hide out in comfy chairs on the large open-air private terrace surrounded by climbing passion flowers and fresh herbs. When it rains you can move into the interior terrace and listen to the pitter patter of raindrops under a sunlit rooftop. And I cannot say enough about the staff! They provide impeccable service and fastidious attention to every detail. They go out of their way to anticipate and accommodate their guests every desire. This Hostel is absolutely spotless, perfect for those with the highest of standards for cleanliness! Felipe and several other staff members speak excellent English for those of you that have limited Spanish speaking skills. And the rest have great patience as well as great pantomiming skills. Even if all this fails…, do as we did and use Bing and Google internet translating services! Located across the street from a park, walking distance to the metro bus and train stations, the Botero Museum, textile district, open markets, restaurants, and vendors of all types, the Hostal Antiguo is the first of its kind centrally located in an urban neighborhood. From here, the whole city is easily accessible from botanical gardens, to the aquarium, hiking, malls, theatres, gyms, and the fantastic downtown area that offers the best prices on most goods and services we looked for.

This is the hostel that every hostel should measure up to! I had an internship in Medellin and was initially planning to stay in Yellow House for a week, then extended my stay up to a month but... loved it so much that I have ended up staying for 2 months! Vincent (the owner) is the best because he really cares. He really wants everyone to have a good time there and is happy to accommodate for everyone's needs if you are just willing communicate to him that you don't like something (although it is difficult for me to imagine that there's something you wouldn't like;)). The dogs are absolutely adorable! I have even seen people who were really scared of dogs ending up liking them, so not staying there because of the dogs is no excuse!! The breakfast is the best ever (Vincent is French so obviously his food standards are really high!). The hostel is always clean and quiet and has great atmosphere. There is a garden outside where you can enjoy cheap Colombian beer and the amazing Medellin weather. There is also a nice communal area inside the house. The area where the hostel is located is also really good- a nice change from overrated el Poblado, with much more affordable prices.There is loads of places around to eat out .And I have NEVER felt unsafe there, even at night! Another bonus is that it is really close to metro (1 min away) and the metro in Medellin can take you anywhere. I cannot recommend this hostel enough! I absolutely loved it! Thanks for everything Vince!
Great sized room, fantastic breakfast and a good atmosphere. Location is brilliant, right near to the metro and away from the shabby central area. It is also close to the Olympic swimming centre and a small supermarket. Nice dogs.

Wonderful atmosphere, and well organized. They have social activities in the evening which attract many locals. Spacious and well equipped kitchen. Cheap beers I the bar. The owner is often present in the hostal, making sure everyone's happy. Open mic night on saturdays atracts a lot of good local musicians. That was my favorite experience. The surroundings are also very nice. With the great sports center, the soccer stadium 4 blocks down the street by the metrostation. A ten minute walk brings you to the foot of cerro el volador that has fantastic panorama view of Medellin. Staying at the wandering paisa is a great adventure, and Im very happy I could live there a whole week.
great location - near busy nightlight /salsa bars, yet residential in character. safe - great protocols. helpful staff. great evening activities and connections with local and traveling communities.

I met some nice people and learned a bunch about Medellin. I went to Estadio every morning for one hour and did laps in one of their nine pools. It was within walking distance and was free. Just show passport and have proper suit , cap and goggles. I shopped mainly at the mercado but Exito is real close by. Sophia and her two daughters are pleasant to be around. I played with the dog every day. Oh! Very nice Common area.
- stuff is really friendly and helpful - nice common areas - just a short walk to a shopping mall

el hostel estuvo muy bien, es nuevo y moderno, todo el staff me ayudaron mucho esta muy bien localizado la pase muy bien.
This is kind of weird to say about a hostel, but the decor was really nice. Having boutique in the name is appropriate. Place is kept clean, and security may be the best I've had at a hostel with gated front, key cards to rooms, and large lockers.

It was close to all the pubs and bars and in as generally safe area. The kitchen and tv area was nice.
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
