Medellin's Happy Buddha Boutique Hostel is a one of a kind type spot in the city's hostel market. It caters to a higher-end clientele and is decorated in an urban chic style that one rarely finds in a hostel, but is none the less delightful. You really feel like you are holed up at a luxury hotel in Manhattan. It's located in a quiet area, just a few blocks from Parque Lleras on a street lined with restaurants bars and smart shops.


Happy Buddha caters to the backpacker crowd with their relatively affordable dorm beds ($25.000 a night), but makes its money on high-end luxury "suites" that start at between $110.000 and $130.000 a night. That's comparable or more affordable than a comparable hotel in the area. There's also a very nice wooden deck where you can enjoy some delicious Colombian beer, bar area, and pool table, and you'll enjoy the art deco touches on the walls.


Happy Buddha boutique hostel is a welcome change from the typical party packer hostels with which the city is cluttered. If you're looking for a more upscale experience, just a few minutes walk from Lleras, then this is your spot.
