Amazing experience :) I was there for almost 3 months, the house is super clean (the cleaning is done every day!), very well furnished, and the location is great I was working there every day - the coworking space is great, quiet and with a high speed internet connexion. Rooms are really nice, with everything you need in there Pierre, who manages the bookings, has been super responsive and helpful with me. Strongly recommend !
An Unforgettable Coliving Experience at Vecino Coliving Medellin I recently had the pleasure of staying at Vecino Coliving in Medellin, and I must say, it was an incredible experience from start to finish. This innovative coliving space truly exceeded my expectations in every aspect. Let me share with you why I believe Vecino is a hidden gem in the heart of Medellin. From the moment I arrived, the friendly and accommodating staff made me feel right at home. They were always available to answer any questions and provided exceptional service throughout my stay. The sense of community at Vecino is remarkable, and it's clear that they prioritize fostering connections and creating a warm and inclusive environment for all residents. The coliving spaces themselves are modern, stylish, and thoughtfully designed. My private room was spacious, comfortable, and furnished with all the necessary amenities. The communal areas, such as the shared kitchen and living room, were immaculately clean and well-equipped, making it easy to interact and connect with other residents. Another highlight of my stay was the exceptional location of Vecino. Situated in a vibrant neighborhood, it was just a stone's throw away from popular attractions, dining options, and public transportation. The convenience of having everything within reach made it effortless to explore the city and truly immerse myself in the local culture. Lastly, I must mention the strong sense of security at Vecino Coliving. As a solo traveler, it was crucial for me to feel safe and protected, and Vecino exceeded my expectations in this regard. The 24/7 security measures in place gave me peace of mind, and the staff's attentiveness added an extra layer of comfort. In conclusion, Vecino Coliving Medellin is an exceptional place to stay, whether you're a digital nomad, a remote worker, or simply seeking a community-oriented living experience. From the outstanding facilities and attentive staff to the engaging events and convenient location, Vecino goes above and beyond to create an unforgettable coliving experience. I can confidently say that my time at Vecino has left a lasting impression, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone looking for a unique and enriching stay in Medellin.
TL;DR: If you are considering staying in rooms 1 or 2 (the cheapest ones), you might want to read this review first to know what you'll find. Here it goes a full review. Remote Work: The place, in general, was okay for working remotely. The chairs are very comfortable, and there is a beautiful common space to work in. Each room has its own desk for private meetings. However, the internet was not that good, though it depends on the nature of your work. Nonetheless, the place is surrounded by many cafes, so the internet problem was not that bad for me. Cleaning: The cleaning was very good, both in the common spaces (kitchen, office, and dining room) and the private bathrooms. Spaces: The kitchen was not a pleasant place to cook. They lacked some basic utensils, and some of them were in very bad condition. If you enjoy cooking, you won't like this kitchen. However, if you prefer ordering delivery, you'll be fine. Community: The house seemed to have no community rules, and the administrator did not live on-site, so the well-being of the community relied solely on the goodwill of the people living there. There was a WhatsApp group tho, so you could coordinate things there. Now, why did I give my review a 2 out of 5? It's because my experience in room 2 was bad, mainly due to two reasons: noise (both from outside and inside) and ventilation. Outer Noise: The place is very close to a street filled with restaurants, so hearing external noise is very common if you are near the street, which was the case with Room 2. Inner Noise and Ventilation: Room 2 does not have a window facing the outside; instead, it faces a corridor inside the building. As a result, the room can become very humid and hot if you keep the door closed for more than 2 hours. Also, since there were no rules in place, people could order food delivery at 2 am and make noise until late at night, and you could hear everything from your room, even with the door closed (Room 2 is located very close to the main door, and you can hear what happens in the living room). At the beginning, I tried to hold on until the end of the month, but going into summer sleeping became increasingly difficult, even with earplugs, because if I closed the door, the room would become hot, and if I opened the door, I could hear all the inner and outer noise at any time. When I discussed this issue with the administrator, they responded well and offered me some solutions. However, none of them worked for me due to various reasons that I explained to the administrator. In the end, I had to leave earlier than planned because I had a lot of trouble sleeping, and it was negatively affecting my daily life. I would have appreciated a refund since the problem was with the room itself, but it didn't happen. If I had to propose a solution, I would suggest that Room 2 shouldn't be used as a room. The same goes for Room 1. Both of these rooms are too exposed to noise from both outside and inside, unlike the other rooms that are located further away from the street and common areas. Perhaps if I had stayed in one of the other rooms, my experience would have been different, and I would have given a rating of 3 or 4 stars.
I stayed in Vecino Coliving campus El Tesoro. Iโ€™m 30 years old, from Mexico. I work online teaching Spanish. Staying here was an unforgettable experience, the people who works here, the community, the calm you feel in this place is amazing. The views are just perfect, itโ€™s far from all the noise of the city which is something difficult to find in Medellin. I highly recommend you to stay here and make good friends.
I stayed at Vecino in Manila for 10 days. I don't regret staying but there would have to be some changes for me to stay again. Pros: An excellent way to meet people. I was traveling solo and am not fluent in Spanish so I wanted to try a coliving to meet other travelers, which I did. I was able to meet some really nice and interesting people and we did a lot of activities together. The house itself is beautiful. Lots of greenery and the laundry service is a plus! Cons: No AC. It is hard to come by in Medellin but the house can get VERY warm, especially in the afternoons. I think it's the way the house is insulated. Some days it was pretty uncomfortable and I think they could use more fans. Communication: Right now only one person runs it so communication is slow and all issues/concerns were not immediately resolved. I relied more on other house guests for questions than the owner. It could benefit from a team. Safety: There really isn't a strong safety protocol in place and you are reliant on the other guests in the house to ensure they don't give strangers access. This was a bit unsettling so I always left my room locked and my valuable items in my room locked in my suitcase. I experienced no issues while there, but had heard of some instances where people left doors open, etc. allowing for safety violations. Room 1 and 2 - People in rooms 1 and 2 experienced issues with noise and ventilation so I would strongly consider that before booking. Overall it's a nice house and the neighborhood was great and walkable, but I think for the price there are some nicer co-livings where you get a bit more value for what you pay.
