About this listing
Don't be a sheep and follow all the tourists to Poblado. Get a feel of the authentic Medellin. Mix with the locals in the salsa bars and cafes.This is the experience you want.
This one room is bigger than most one bedroom apartments! Lined with two walls of storage/closet space this room is long enough to sport a brand new queen size , two night stands,and a desk.If your looking to book as a group , a couple or on your own the room will be made to fit your requirements.I have a pull out double bed so the room will sleep 4 people. The room also boasts its own huge private bathroom but besides its size and amenities this bedroom stands out because it is at the back of the house.Many people who come to the city complain about thin walls and city noises but this particular room is nestled in the back of the house on the bottom floor making sure that you are insulated from ALL noises in this bustling city.Its very cool as its away from the direct sunlight which is a bonus when its really hot, however its darker than the other rooms. You will be close enough to the massive kitchen for late night snacks but all the rest of the houses hang outs are upstairs so this room is PERFECT for someone who enjoys lots of quiet private space for work or relaxing while in Medellin.
If you are looking to stay in the middle of the city, be surrounded by everything you need (shopping, bars, The BEST salsa clubs, restaurants, Olympic Stadium, the famous Metro at your doorstep) and have a ton of space in an incredibly quiet neighborhood then look no further. If you are here to get things done and enjoy Medellin while still having great space with peace and quiet there is no better spot. The house has 5 sprawling bedrooms all with their own private bathrooms boasting huge tiled shower areas with bathtubs (almost impossible to find in Medellin). The kitchen has enough space to accommodate a small army of chefs with storage everywhere and a brand new refrigerator. MULTIPLE common areas in the house including a T.V. room with Big Screen and new wrap around couch, HUGE open room upstairs perfect for lounging or yoga and salsa classes, and an outdoor open air patio on the top floor give you so much space to work with you might never go outside. Whether you need space to take in house dance lessons, roll out a yoga mat, have work out space inside or in the sun, or just a quiet place to read, study spanish, or get things done online this house has extra rooms for all your needs. Space coupled with super fast wireless internet throughout the house gives you the perfect environment to get anything you need done while feeling like you could be the only person in the whole house. After a long day you can step out your back door onto your PRIVATE open air top floor patio and Barbecue outside or take the whole day and lay down to soak in the sun and read a book never having to leave your city apartment. The house also has a two person small steam sauna perfect for a good sweat and giving you a relaxing break from everything you have going on. The Metro station is less than 5 minutes away and can take you all over this innovative city. Next to the Metro is the new Olympic Stadium which allows you to take advantage of outdoor gyms, olympic swimming pools, or take in a futbol match or concert at the huge outdoor stadium. You are also located 10 minutes away from U.P.B making this a young college area with tons of cool bars and nightlife to keep you entertained. This area of Medellin is for people who want to taste the real Colombia not the touristy shopping rich areas outside of town but the quaint, authentic, not over priced but real parts of this amazing city!! Organic food markets and restaurants just minutes away. This house is the best deal you are gonna find. Come and see for yourself.
I have more connections in this country than anyone you are going to meet and can take care of all your questions and needs. Staying for just a few days or planning to relocate to this amazing city I can point you in the direction you need to accomplish anything!! Come stay in Medellin and see what everyone is talking about.
Please keep all common areas clean. If you use the kitchen, as a courtesy to your fellow roommates wash all dishes and pots you use.
Be kind and respectful to everyone , this is your house for as long as your here.
Strictly no smoking ,drugs , or hookers the building.
Milena and everyone we met through her were fantastic. On one hand, some might think this place almost like a hostel however it is a step above. For example, the shared kitchen is kept very clean both my Milena and her charges as well as the fellow guests. The street the house is on is relatively quiet but very near the vibrant Carrera 70. A 10-15 minute walk will bring you closer to the heart of the Laureles neighborhood which has a unique mix of restaurants and cafes including some such as SaludPan that are very progressive and health-minded. Also within a 10 minute walk is the soccer stadium where my wife and I spontaneously decided to go see a match. The walk to the Metro is even shorter and proved a bonus. We topped it all off with a Spanish class with Milena and hope to continue them in the future!
Place was very nice and well located near stadium and two blocks from rumba places, Milena and her friend Natalia always helped with information and tips near the city, It was a wonderfull experience, access to kitchen and other amenities of the house was really a great experience,
The room and private bathroom was big and clean, with a desk and a comfortable bed. As Milena was out of town, her friend took good care of me and made sure I was comfortable with the place and surrounding area (i.e. showing me the best cheap local food nearby, kindly inviting us to a soccer game). The house is just a few blocks from one of the more popular nightspots in town (La Setenta). As the room is in the back of the house, it is a bit dark, but you can always go upstairs for more natural light. I enjoyed my stay here and enjoyed meeting the host and other people staying in the house.
After travelling at the Caribbeancoast I had my first hot shower at Milena's place. The room was big, nice and clean. Milena was not around during my stay but friends of her were around and helped me organize my travels and gave great tips!!!
Milena was a great host. Her place is beautiful and really peaceful- located on a really safe and lovely street just a couple seconds from the action of the setente. Doc and Milena made sure our stay was really comfortable and gave us tips on great places to eat, always checking in on us.
Milena was a great host. Her house is very spacious and comfortable, and she went out of her way to help us sort out laundry and book a taxi. The location is perfect for getting into the centre making it really easy to explore the city. Thanks for a great stay!
As usual my third visit was made easy by Milena and Doc. They allowed me to leave luggage prior to my arrival, whilst I was away for the weekend, and arrival arrangements were smooth and friendly. The place is run in a very friendly relaxed manner whilst maintaining standards such as cleanliness, thanks to Olga. The atmosphere with the other guests was positive, and there is always an interesting range of people. I am sure I will be back!

About the Host, Milena
Hi my name is Milena and I live in this beautiful house.I am a Spanish teacher and I currently teach spanish here in Medellin. I speak very good english and I speak a little German.I can offer spanish lessons at a discount to anyone who stays with me or I can put you in touch with numerous spanish schools or universities in Medellin.I offer a collection service from the airport ,that will bring you direct to my house for 80,000 pesos. I am always honest with the descriptions of the house and the rooms.I ask that you please read the descriptions and look at the price of the rooms.There is a reason some rooms are more expensive than others, this doesn't mean the cheapest room is bad , it just won't have a balcony or big window or private bathroom. My house is big and beautiful, so when you pay for the room you are not just paying for the room.You are paying for the large terrace, the chill out room , the tv room , the dining room and the ambience of a friendly chilled out house.Also you have the chance to experience a beautiful part of Medellin that is very very safe but a taste of the real Medellin, not just big buildings in Poblado. I want that your stay in Medellin is enjoyable and you will want to return.This is not a hotel ,so if you want a perfect experience then you book a hotel. This is my house , its not perfect but its fun and relaxed.Sometimes its a little noisy, I live here so do other people.Thats what makes the house the great place it is.Airbnb don't allow you to exchange emails and phone numbers until after you have booked.Please bear this in mind. Thanks and I look forward to hosting you in my house.
