MAIN ATTRACTION

Our housing offer is driven by the tourism rise of the Escaleras Eléctricas, in one neighborhood of the Comuna 13.

A PEACEFUL FAVELA

THE COMUNA 13,

Once very dangerous, the Comuna 13 is now  a haven of peace, arts, economic growth and cultural sharing. 

This now cozy former ghetto attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world every day.  Safe and open to the public for almost a decade, the Comuna 13 is an open-air display of history. 

 This unique and endearing spot  shows that all the clichés you might have heard about Colombia are only the remains of a tragic past. Backpackers, couples, families, seniors,  the path is for everyone.  Six escalators allow visitors to easily go up this urban hill, where roof plates and orange bricks are piled up to create houses.

The colorful street-art facades of the Comuna 13, with its countless graffiti paintings, tell the story of the district's gloomy years and its evolution. Hundreds of families in the area make a living from small businesses, art galleries and home-made stands.


 This symbol of Medellín is a must-do during your time in the city. 

EXPLORE THE BACKSTAGE AREA OF COMUNA 13 :

ITS SECRET RURAL PART

The Comuna 13  gathers several disadvantaged districts that used to be violent, cut off and inaccessible. La Loma is one of those neighborhoods and it is the headquarters of Call me Mami Hostal. Some say it is the district with the bloodiest past in the history of the Comuna 13.

 
Entirely secure and peaceful, La Loma looks like a small village on a hill  on the outskirts of the city of Medellín. We can even sleep with the door open! With Call me Mami Hostal,  you can prolong your experience of the Comuna 13,  in a less touristy part, which feels like a small corner of paradise, and thus have a positive impact on its community.

EXTEND YOUR EXPERIENCE IN
THE COMUNA 13
BY STAYING AT A MAMI'S HOUSE!

While visiting the Comuna 13, Thomas meets a mother who was selling donuts with her children.

This mother spontaneously offers to host him at her home in the favela.

 

Moved by this incredible immersive experience and the golden hospitality of this family, Thomas falls in love with this barrio, the popular Colombian atmosphere, and decides, 3 years later, to leave everything behind to embark on this humanitarian project.

Thomas decides to focus this project on the mothers of this neighborhood.

 

Many of them are alone in raising their children, and under precarious economic conditions.

LITTLE BY LITTLE,

CALL ME MAMI HOSTAL WAS BORN…
