The Hostelz.com Review

The British-owned Purple Monkey Hostel is relatively new, but has quickly become one of the most popular in the country due to its friendly staff and modern facilities that would rival any hostel in the world.

The Location

A less-than-five-minute walk from the Metro and Parque Poblado, the Purple Monkey is perfectly located to explore the city or head to the vibrant nightlife around the park. The hostel is based in El Poblado's Bohemian district of Manila, which is also home to some of the best restaurants in Medellín with quirky art galleries and independent eateries, which are a breath of fresh air from the chain restaurants of Parque Lleras.

El Poblado is the best and safest area of Medellín where the city's elite come to party. The parties go on until the early hours and wherever you end up you will only ever be a maximum ten-minute walk back to the hostel.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms are excellent, with attention to detail in all areas such as private plug sockets in the huge lockers that will comfortably fit your big backpack. The solid wood bunk beds are the best we have ever seen in terms of the construction and the mattresses are brand new and very comfortable.

There are gender-segregated bathrooms on the first floor, with another on the second floor. There is a further toilet, which is en suite to the six-bed dorm. All bathrooms, as with the hostel in general, are regularly cleaned and are spotless.

The five showers are also located upstairs and with easy-to-adjust hot water at excellent pressure.

Common Spaces

The hostel markets its roof terrace as the biggest in the city, and in all fairness, it is huge and well set out. At the back is a wooden roof that houses the bamboo bar, two hammocks, and more bamboo furniture.

If you prefer a quieter evening, the ground floor chill-out area is ideal, with beanbags surrounding an original, Colonial-style fountain. The sound of flowing water creates a relaxed vibe, and it's a great place to meet other travelers. This area benefits from natural light due to the skylight, which is covered by a roof to protect you from the elements, but it ensures that there is excellent ventilation.

The TV room is cosy, with more beanbags and a huge flat-screen plasma TV. The cable TV has various channels in both English and Spanish.

Summary

In our opinion, this is the best hostel we encountered in all our time in South America. The hostel combines excellent facilities and knowledgeable and friendly staff with a sociable vibe. We can't recommend this place enough.
