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.
The host canceled this reservation 7 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I rented a private room for a month, and found it to be a great value for the price, with an active social atmosphere with other guests. A busy MetroPlus bus stop is a five minute walk away, connecting you to the MetroCable and all of Medellín. If you aren't a transit fan, it never takes more than a couple of minutes to get a taxi right out front.
Booking through AirBnB was super easy and Joel was immediately responsive. The hostel was very clean and located in a safe residential area. Across the street is a huge sports complex (like an outdoor YMCA) with soccer fields and basketball courts and it it is lit up at night and people are plying there until late, so it feels very safe. The nearest MetroPlus (bus rapid transit), "Fatima" is about two blocks from the hostel, and on the way you will pass fruit vendors where you can buy delicious pineapple and papayas! The rooms in the hostel and simple and clean and the bathrooms are nice. There is a kitchen on each floor and I can say ours was extremely nice. The roof deck, as promised, had a great view of Medellin, although it could have used a little cleaning. Another great feature was the small bodega on the first floor that is run by the same people. At night you can go down there and share some beers with friends on tables that spill out into the street.
Joel was extremely accommodating and very friendly. The hostel was amazing with a kitchen and bathroom on every floor. Being a hostel you can have complete solitude in your private room if you wish or join others on the roof if you want to be social.
The view from the roof is incredible and is an excellent place to relax at the end of the day. I highly recommend staying here.
International House was a great experience for me. Joel is such a nice guy and really accommodating. I was unhappy with my first room because I needed somewhere to work and he provided me an alternative that was great. If you want an alternative to the party atmosphere found in Poblado than this is a great spot. Really nice neighborhood and much cheaper than Poblado. Happy travels.
