International House & Hostel - Best hostel in Medellin

I stayed at International House & Hostel in Medellin for about 2 weeks while backpacking in South America. It claims to be the best hostel in Medellin thanks to a travel website badge, and they are not kidding! While there is room for improvement, mainly with more staff to help around, the place is huge, very quiet compared to other locations in the city and right next to a workout park. I stayed in a shared dorm with some other backpackers, but Joel, the owner, showed me the private rooms which are basically small apartments with their own kitchen and living room. A cheap hostel from my point of view considering how much you get for your buck. Tip -- Stay enough time to try the BBQ at the rooftop.

Best Group Accommodation in Medellin

I had heard about a much recommended hostel in Medellin for group accommodations. I travel with a large party of grown people and we value nice quiet spaces were respectful people. While we are aware that backpackers are young and wild the general crowd at International Hostel Medellin was very respectful and welcoming. The hostel is located in a quiet part of town, away from the popular Parque Lleras. We also got involved in Spanish lesson meet-ups and enjoyed great local food down at the restaurant.


International House Medellin is a hostel with excellent facilities and amenities in an upscale and safe area of Medelln. Slightly better organization could go a long way in terms of improving the ambiance and assist with small daily issues that arise.

The Location

International House is located in the Belen area of Medelln, very close to the busy zone of Laureles. It's in a quiet, green, residential neighborhood and across the street there is a huge sports center with football fields, tennis and basketball courts, and swimming pools. Within a ten-minute walking distance you can get to a roundabout with various eating options, a big supermarket, a pharmacy, a bakery, and few bars. The metro station is about fifteen minutes away on foot, while taxis are generally a relatively cheap way of getting around as well.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The building consists of four floors, and private rooms as well as dormitories are also on offer (longer stays can also be arranged at a discounted rate). The dormitories range from three to ten beds, mostly bunk beds. The mattresses are in really good condition and there are lockers for each bed (with sockets inside them). Almost all rooms are also equipped with flat TVs.

The bathrooms is one of the best points of the hostel given that there is always hot water with excellent shower pressure. Towels are provided at check-in and the bathrooms, like all other rooms, are cleaned daily.

Common Spaces

Various spaces are available, providing the opportunity to meet others (depending also on the period, as there are low seasons as well), or have some privacy when needed. On the ground floor there is the reception area, which also serves as a bar and restaurant (very affordable!). Outside there are various tables and benches. Each of the four floors is equipped with a fully functional kitchen, a living room with sofas and cable TV, and small balcony. The terrace provides a huge common area, a very big TV, and an amazing view of the city. In addition, there is a laundry area on the terrace that works with coins. Excellent Wi-Fi is provided with a different router on each floor.


All in all, the setup of the hostel and the facilities offered are of the highest quality. Improvement of small organizational details, such as having more and permanent staff and the reception staying open longer to facilitate check-in, would make this hostel ideal.
