8/10 Very good

Selina Medellin was in a good location in el poblado. The main dining and bar areas are in walking distance. The rooms are pretty clean. You have housekeeping often so the room can stay clean. The rooms can be a little small especially if you have roommates with lots of stuff, then it can get crowded. If you want to lock up personal stuff, you can take a small lock since there’s lockers in the room. It can get very loud at night since Medellin is always partying, so take ear plugs.

I like the location. Everyone was friendly except for Paula at the front desk. The room did not have a hair dryer, no tv, no phone.

Great Neighborhood
The hostel was perfectly located in the heart of Poblado, great for asking and exploring the neighborhood. Our private room was a bit musty and the bed wasn't the most comfortable. But other than these two small things, the place was okay for a few days of adventuring.
