This hostel would be awesome if it wasn't across the road from a number of bars that have music playing every afternoon and night. There is no sound proofing so you can hear the music from the front rooms and those further back in the building. If that doesn't bother you, the private room for 2 people with bathroom is...

I spent two weeks at Geo Hostel while taking classes at Total Spanish Language School. It's a great hostel! All the people who work there are phenomenal; helpful, friendly and sweet. I loved the breakfasts (fresh cooked eggs and arepas). The place is spotlessly clean and enjoys a great location in El Poblado.

My partner and I stayed in a private room at Geo Hostel for 2 days on a recent trip to Medellin. We were travelling to celebrate our birthdays (one of which happened to be while at the hostel). The staff were warm, welcoming and thoughtful, even going out of their way to purchase my partner a variety of delicious pastries...

Arriving somewhat bedraggled into Medellin after an overnight bus we were pleasantly welcomed by a fellow bald man with braces and a muscular stature befitting his wholesome breakfast of eggs, arepa (corn cake abomination) coffee and juice (a traditional Colombian classic for a traditional Colombian man). He instantly put us at ease despite the collection of gregarious vest tops and...

This was a great choice. The location being in Poblado was great, about 15 minutes from the metro station (the A line which connected us to most things). The walk to the station was down a populated street past parque lleras and there are a ton of bars and restaurants in the area. Our double room was comparable to a...

The private room is like a hotel, it is very clean and fancy, it has a pretty roof as a social area and the breakfast it is really good (it consist of a typical Arepa with eggs and coffee or tea). The personal is helpful but not very cheerful, and also I would chance the tvs and get a bigger...

After a loud hostel in Cartagena, I was ready for some quiet. Geo Hostel was a little TOO quiet for my taste, but I can't complain too much. The wifi wasn't that great, especially on the computers available upstairs, but breakfast was free and tasty, the hostel was very modern looking and clean, and had a perfect location (close to...

I really liked Geo Hostel. It was clean and comfortable. The staff were extremely helpful and kind. A good, free breakfast. The rooms were pretty warm but they had fans to help with that. Good location. Nice patio. It's not a party hostel, but there were always people who wanted to go out and explore so it never felt dull...

This is a brand new hostel in the perfect location. The beds and pillows are the most comfortable in 4 months of travelling and the bathroom is the cleanest most modern that I have come across on this trip. Most importantly the staff are pleasant and extremely honest! I left a pair of $400 headphones behind by accident and when...

I am not much of a hostel person nowadays so if you enjoy the hustle and bustle of hostel life take my word with a grain of salt. It is your typical, run of the mill, latin american hostel for the most part. My issues with it stemmed from many of the comments advertising it as a quiet place to...
