The roof top bar, staff were so helpful and friendly, they speak English and fluent Spanish which really helps and one of the aussie owners has been living in medellin so he knows his stuff. The rooms were comfortable, simple but beds were good and it was clean. The coffee in the cafe with breakfast is awesome! I loved that it was not a hostel ontop of another hostel, where the experience is force and fake! This is the real Colombia!

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.
