Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
La ubicación algo difícil de conseguir por primera vez pero adecuada una vez que se conoce la zona por estar cerca del centro de la ciudad y haber acceso a todo, el personal muy amable y prestos a atender cualquier requerimiento.

Hartelijk, behulpzaam, schoon
De hartelijke, behulpzame medewerkers doen hun uiterste best om je verblijf in het hostel en Medellin onvergetelijk te maken, je voelt je direct thuis, de sfeer is aangenaam, ontbijtje staat elke ochtend klaar, kamers zijn schoon. Het tram station is zo'n 5 minuutjes lopen van het hostel, het metro station minder dan een kwartier, voor mij ideaal. Ik zou een volgende keer weer hier naar toe gaan.
