Staying at a hostel doesn’t necessarily mean you should sacrifice comfort—especially if you opt for one of the trendy, boutique hostels that have been popping up everywhere in the last few years. Medellin, Colombia is home to quite a few, and here’s a couple you should take into consideration, if you’re staying in this city.
Los Patios Hostel
Los Patios is worth the stay just for the amazing views from its spacious rooftop terrace, but that’s only one of the many things it has in store. Its rooms are inspired by different regions in Colombia, and you can also find a cinema room, rooftop gym, and an organic herb garden on the premises.
Rango offers most of the amenities you would find at a regular hotel, but it’s a better fit for the alternative crowd. It even has a restaurant, outdoor swimming pool, and a bar on the spot, in addition to having beautifully designed shared facilities.
La Playa Hostel
La Playa is another retro hostel in Medellin where young travelers will feel right at home. It features a restaurant and bar on the premises, but you can also meet new people at this chic shared lounge, garden, and sun terrace.
