Viajero Hostels has opened the doors of its new property in Medellín, Colombia’s second largest city. Medellín is the quintessential youth traveller’s preferred travel destination in Colombia due to its perfect year-round weather, great nightlife, entertainment, fantastic food and variety of cultural activities.
Designed and built from scratch, the hostel brings the best quality standards of the biggest European and US brands into Latin America, raising the bar for hostel design and comfort in Colombia. The hostel boasts 200 beds across 51 rooms, rooftop bar, jacuzzis, street-level restaurant open to the public, waterfront patio, co-working spaces and social areas, all featuring artwork by local artists. Designed by one of the country’s leading architect firms, the building itself aims to be the jewel of the up-and-coming neighbourhood and tourist hot-spot, Manila.
The new opening contributes to Viajero’s ambitious expansion plan in Latin America, taking the total number of hostels in Colombia to seven (other cities include Cartagena, Santa Marta, Tayrona, San Andrés, Cali and Salento), and 12 on the continent (with properties in Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Colonia del Sacramento and La Pedrera).
