Tourist and Student accommodation in Poblado

This neighborhood is filled with numerous hotels, hostels and high rise apartments. In El Poblado, you can easily find many comfortable international student houses on Tellanto.com.

El Poblado is an upscale commercial district, and if you decide to do an internship or a semester exchange here, choosing an international student house in this neighborhood is a convenient option.

El Poblado is an estrato 6 neighborhood, meaning that the cost of utilities in this area is higher than other neighborhoods in Medellin. Your cost of living in Colombia would be higher than in other areas. Although you get a lot for it in return.

However, this neighborhood provides easy access to various restaurants, supermarkets like Exito and Carulla, and other commercial establishments. Also, foreigners having limited knowledge of Spanish can easily settle in the neighborhood, as the residents of El Poblado primarily speak English.
