Florentina Hostal will make you feels like you're at home. It's the cosiest hostel you can find in Medellín.
This is a brand-new, cosy hostel in the best area of Medellín. Florentina is located in El Poblado, a super safe and quiet area close to Zona Rosa (the party area of the neighborhood with famous nightclubs and bars where you can go salsa dancing). The hostel is super easy to reach from the airport by taxi or by bus and metro within minutes. The metro station Poblado is about a ten-minute walk away, same as the Southern Terminal Bus Station to catch distance buses. It's perfectly located, and guests have an excellent choice of Colombian food, supermarkets, bars, international restaurants, and hip cafés with Wi-Fi in the surrounding area. Coming by car is possible, but parking in Medellín is only recommended in a secured parking area.
Rooms and Bathrooms
The whole interior design is adorable. Mixed dorms with four and seven beds are on the second floor. The rooms have lockers and a fan. The mattresses are so comfortable, you might want to stay in bed all day long. There are two clean bathrooms next to the dining area. It is not a lot, but it is ok for such a small hostel.
The common spaces are decorated with so much love and details. Once you enter the hostel, a huge comfortable sofa and some chairs are waiting for you while you can a look at the wall with all its beautiful decorations and framed pictures. The entry hall feels like a cosy living room. The reception is also on the ground floor.
Upstairs, you can find the lovely, clean, and well-equipped kitchen as well as the dining room with its massive, wooden table. Perfect for communicative evenings with friends. Moreover, Florentina provides a living room with a flat-screen TV and DVDs. The highlight is the terrace, facing the street for some people-watching and relaxing. Enjoy the all-year-round temperatures around twenty-five degrees Celsius outside. The terrace is nicely decorated with a sofa, a table, and some chairs as well as beautiful flowers.
The moment you enter, you feel like at home or visiting a good friend at his home. It is not a party hotel, but like a cosy, social hostel where you can enjoy some quiet time or meet other travelers. The location is perfect and the hostel is brand new -- it's definitely a hostel to fall in love with.
