Great place to stay in a nice neighborhood. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Joel wasn't here, but gave me several tips via airbnb messaging. The hostel is clean and the view from the roof is amazing! I will definitely return if I come back to Medellin!

This house/hostel is an ideal place to spend your first days in Medellín, regardless of how long you plan to stay in the city. In my first week in the city (and the country), I rested my head in one of the private rooms. It was spacious, comfy, and had a great fan. It's the roof deck and the friendliness of the staff and fellow guests that I liked the best. From up top, you can see all how you are cradled on all sides by the city's beautiful mountains and down in Belén, you are really right in the middle of the bowl. You can get anywhere, do anything, and Monica makes a delicious breakfast! Will definitely tell fellow first-timers to the city to make this there first stop. Joel, thanks!

The group of 7 I traveled with knew little to zero Spanish and we were worried whether we would be able to get around while in Medellin. Needless to say, Joel put those concerns to rest immediately. Joel is a transplant from the states and understands the challenges a foreign traveler might experience. He was proactive enough to provide directions on how to get from point A to B from the moment we landed and advised us through out our trip. He was hands on always available 24/7 via or cell. He helped coordinate taxis/shuttles for our group to Penon de Guatape (2 hours away/ $50 shuttle ride) and Parque Lleras (10 minute cab ride/ $2 taxi ride) and our trips back to the airport (1 hour away/ $40). He also offers home cooked meals for very reasonable prices ($2-$5.00) with a 24 hour notice. The house itself is very clean and offered all amenities an American travelers is accustomed too. There were 4 showers in our apartment of 5 bedrooms with plenty of hot water. There was a nice living area as well as a rooftop where we were able to hangout and take some gorgeous pictures of the city itself. He offers WiFi and cable in every room of the apartment. We had cleaning service on 2-3 occasions on our 5 day trip. The neighborhood itself is very safe and we were able to walk across the street and play basketball and go swimming with some of the locals. There is a bodega located on the ground floor of the house and offers a quick fix for drinks and snacks. There is also a super market and a shopping mall just two blocks away. My group and I went out every night and Joel provided us with business cards and maps to show our cab drivers so they knew where to bring us back. There are some ground rules that Joel lays out, but all of them are fair. Be respectful and don't destroy the place and you wont have any issues. We met several other guests at the house that spoke English and lived at the house for some time. They were eager to advise and encourage us on the things we should try while there. Everyone we ran into was super pleasant and had only good things to say about their time there and Medellin. This is a trip that my friends and I were sad to leave from, but would eagerly come back again when the time comes. I would highly recommend Joel to any of my friends and family that are looking to travel to Medellin. I personally look forward to an opportunity where i can have some time to travel there again. Joel- thanks so much for everything. Truly appreciate your hospitality. We felt we received a 5-star service from you and the team and couldn't be happier about our choice of staying with you. We will be back! Again mucho gracias!

Joel was an incredible host - he is fluent in both Spanish and English and makes you feel welcome and at home from the minute you walk in. He was extremely helpful, giving us everything we needed from advice to medicine when we fell ill. His place is stunning - the rooftop view is the best place to work if you are working remote or just chill and enjoy a beer. There is also an incredible free sports complex across the street with a track for runners, courts for sports and a free weight room. The best place - will be back!

Joel is a great host and I strongly recommend his space for people visiting Medellín. He was very communicative before we arrived and provided us with lots of information throughout our stay. The place is well maintained and has plenty of space to hang out, 3 kitchens, lots of bathrooms and a beautiful rooftop deck. The wifi is reliable and strong so working from there is a dream. It's located close to all forms of public transit, the Unidad Deportiva across the street is beautiful and there is a large grocery store 2 blocks away. I only wish I had more time to spend there.

Response from Joel:
This was AIRBNB's fault. They did not notify me of the reservation, so I had no idea the guest was confirmed.
