Right let´s get things straight ... this is party central! With a brand new shiny wing, a TV room that most people dream about, a bar, great music and lots of like minded people, it´s a great place to base yourself in Medellin. Opposite Proximo (which is likely to become your best friend) and in the heart of Poblado, minutes from Parque Lleras it´s a perfect spot. The showers are pretty good and it is pretty clean. The downside is the kitchen is so poorly stocked it´s ridiculous .. eating ceral with a fork from a saucepan for lack of cutlery and crockery is an experience. The rooms aren´t cleaned that often so the 10 bed dorm was pretty stinky after a day or two. Plus building works make it really noisey. The woman that owns it can be moody to .. maybe she just needed to get laid (i never did "tell her!")

Casa Kiwi is located in El Poblado, 5 blocks away from Parque Lleras.

This is hostel is located a very nice area with restaurants, bars, clubs within walking distance. The hostel has a kitchen, full internet access, big screen tv, pool table, drinks, laundry services.

Pros: Cheap, clean, friendly staff, everything is close by, safe area, plenty of resources of activities you can do in Medellin, opportunities to meet and develop new friendships with other travelers

Cons: Beds were hard, shower water took a long time to heat up.

I stayed 2 nights at the Kiwi before moving into a private Medellin apartment. It was fun, even though i didn't get a good nights rest.

I recommend the Kiwi to anyone on a travel budget, traveling alone seeking to make new friends. Check out their website for more photos!

Really expensive, and wasn't worth the money in our opinions. We paid $60,000 COP a night for a small room with double bed, no key for room. Only good thing about it was that it has a pool table and big screen TV but they compete for sound as are right next door. Very much a party house, with noise levels having to be down by 2am. Also, witnessed drugs being used by both guests and staff. Not impressed at all.
