This place proved to a home away from home. Just the atmosphere one needs when miles away from home. Vincent was such a gentleman. The dogs were amazing, well trained. Oh, and the music....really loved it!

The hostel is located in a nice & quiet neighbourhood and the hostel is more like a house: the owner and his son live in it as well with their 2 cuddly dogs. Breakfast includes bananas, granola, milk, bread, cheese, avocados, jams and coffee and is served at 1 long table so you can chat with the other visitors. Furthermore,...

The location was perfect for us, close to metro, nice residential area and away from El Poblado. The first night we were in a very small room but after that we were moved to a spacious room with balcony. Great shower with hot water. Lovely friendly, laid-back atmosphere, a reflection of Vince's relaxed character. Great breakfasts. Good-value evening meals enjoyed...

Vincent, the owner, offers a friendly, clean, and quiet place to stay while in Medellín. The location is excellent - right near the Floresta metro station so there is easy access to wherever the Metro goes. It is also an easy walk to San Javier and the Comuna 13 area, Laureles neighborhood, and the Stadium sports complex. We became regulars...

If you are searching for a home and some family feeling off the beaten backpacker-track, look no further! Vincent is an amazing host who managed to create an atmosphere of warmth and a family get-together as I have never experienced it before (not only because of self-made chocolate cake). During your stay I Medellin, this will definitely feel like your...

Private room with easy access to happenings! As an elder solo traveler I felt welcome among the young and when I needed medical care I received direction to a good clinic where I was given needed RX.
