This is the second time I have visited this hostel. The first time I had a good experience. However I have just left very disappointed and offended. I was placed in a bed that was reported to have a bed bug problem prior to my arrival, without my knowledge of the incident. I spent two nights in this bed and... More

This was an interesting place. It has its ups and downs like everywhere. We had a mixed up reservation in another hostel, so looked around the city and ended up here. The beds are sufficiently comfortable and quiet (no squeaking). The downstairs room (aptly named 'Hades') is a little cramped, albeit cheap. The third floor rooms are nice (which is... More

For me the most important thing in a hostal is the people and the ambiance. Arcadia stands out from the rest in that point, there's such a great community there, I met Kurdish guy from Syria, ukranians, Iranians and many people. I definitely recommend this hostal for anyone who likes friendship, amusement and dynamism!

I stayed at Arcadia for over a week, for several reasons. The location is good close to the main nightlife, the staff is friendly and nice, and there´s a nice atmosphere throughout the hostel. If you want to relax and watch a movie you can do that, as well as share some beers with the other guests in the common... More

We ended up staying here four nights! Great hostel, great staff, great location! We stayed in a dorm room because they had a double bed for both of us-for cheaper than two beds. Also, the owner has made up business cards with very helpful maps on the back-brilliant! It was clean, friendly and fairly priced.

We stayed here for 4 nights and the staff and owner here are great. I would recommend staying in the 11 bed dorm, Olympus, which has its own balcony. We had an issue while we were staying there and the staff couldn't have done more. It's a 10 walk to the main drinking area which is nice because the streets... More

This place isn't just comfy, with great beds and wide spaces to meet new people, but its staff is amazing. The owner Spyro, Alejo, Max, and Julian made sure everyone was having a good time. Being from Colombia and never have been in Medellín before was definitely made better by staying at Arcadia. There is a whole Greek theme to... More

Arcadia was a lovely, well run hostel and I really enjoyed my time here. It is a 10 min walk to the good night life and 25 min walk to the metro. The pancakes were disgusting (they use maize flower for the batter) but coffee was good. It's the kind of place you stay for way longer than expected because... More
