Live

Students only: Stay in our dorms or one of our 12 private rooms.

Our hostel is students-only, 24 hr. reception, and super comfortable/clean/secure.  Our delicious Colombian meals (served in our very own restaurant) will keep your brain fed and ready to learn & communicate. 

Enjoy

Weekly tours, city excursions, and cultural activities.

Our weekly La Comuna 13 tour (Street graffiti) is free – that alone will save you 40.000.  We also dance salsa, play tejo, and visit parts of Medellin often overlooked by many tourists.

Welcome to Blink Spanish Immersion Hostel!

Learn faster and save money as you EAT, SLEEP, and LIVE the immersion Spanish experience that is all about fun, pushing your personal limits, and creating new chapters in your life journey.  Blink is not a total profit-model school like most of our competitors.  We profit share with each employee (24), house employees, and take an active interest in volunteer work and being strong members of our community.  Our social model and high wages attract the best employees, professors, and students in all of the city.

Located in Medellin’s El Poblado neighborhood (Barrio Manila), we provide a safe, familiar, and immersive Spanish learning experience.  We are surrounded by great restaurants and cafes, one block from the El Poblado police station, supermarkets, and a short walk from Parque Lleras, one of South America’s best parties.  It can be hard to study in Medellin as it is a party 7-days-a-week city.  Hostels party all night, and sleep can be hard to come by.  At Blink every student is dedicated to making the most of their stay/learning experience and because only students are allowed to stay, you can know that Blink is a comfortable and peaceful place to study.  During the week, Blink is asleep by midnight.  Study during your weeks – enjoy the party during the weekends.

Finally, to explore Medellin you want to stay close to the metro, we are just a few blocks from the El Poblado station.

Blink is a place to learn, a place to enjoy, and a place you will remember for the rest of your life.  Join us, we love what we do and we want to be a part of your Spanish-learning journey!

“I studied at a different school in Cartagena, and what I found at Blink was nothing short of, WOW – one of those rare truly unique experiences I have known. Amazing price, school, & experience!”

“My brain still hurts, but it was all worth it. I was going to study for 2 weeks but stayed for 6 because it was both affordable and effective. Blink took me from zero Spanish to conversational and my 6-weeks there are forever part of me.
Thank you Blink!”

In the last year we've taught Spanish to over 500 people from over 40 countries - and every review we've ever received is a perfect 5 stars. Our reputation depends on your experience.

  • review rating 5  I loved my time at Blink! I was there for one week and returned 2 weeks later for another full week, because I just couldn't get enough! I've greatly improved my Spanish since being at Blink. The school also has such a wonderful atmosphere. I feel as if everyone is family and it's my home away from home. I already miss them all! I'd highly recommend anyone wanting to learn Spanish to try Blink. Great people and a great city! -Lilo

  • review rating 5  It was so hard to leave this place, I actually came running back the same day (... conveniently forgot my headphones...). Every single person who works here is welcoming and friendly, and made my stay in Medellin that much more productive, fun, and unforgettable- from Salsa adventures, to their beautifully cooked meals, finding the best Empanadas (del mundo), going to the football, and meeting inspired people, this place is so much more than just a language school. Thank you all for all the support during my short stay, students and teachers alike! Special love of course for Gavin! Los extraño!

  • review rating 5  Que chevere! Super! Are my words to describe Blink the Colombian way. Solo quedé por una semana pero pienso que me aprendí mucho. Ahora puedo hablar con la gente de sudmamerica. Stay at Blink, even just for a week, and your Spanish will greatly improve. I couldve easily stayed for 1-2 more weeks. Medellin is a lovely city; Blink Spanish just made it lovelier with its really good paisa atmosphere. Someday I hope to be back! Cheers to Christian and the Blink crew.

  • review rating 5  Blink Spanish is a very special place. Never in my travels have I ever felt like such a wonderful family atmosphere so quickly. The teaching is fantastic, and there are always Colombians around for you to practise your Spanish. You are guaranteed to learn a lot, and quickly in the environment created here. For the price you pay, the value for money is amazing, especially considering the hours you get and small class sizes. As soon as you arrive you will feel the warmth of superstar owner Christian, the unbelievably kind staff and the fun teachers (especially you Nathalie!), who teach practical Spanish perfect for setting a foundation, or becoming proficient enough to travel, or for becoming completely fluent. The facilities are also fantastic. The showers are also powerful and hot, the big, comfortable bed you get (made every day!) can be curtained off if you fancy a bit of privacy, and the wifi is really reliable. That's not to mention the awesome location in the safest places in Medellin with a great nightlife. Despite reaching the level of Spanish I hoped in my two weeks here, leaving this place has been one of the hardest things about travel. You go in hoping to pick up Spanish, and you'll leave feeling like you had a family in a home and people you'd love to come back for.

  • review rating 5  Ambiance: chaleureuse et familiale. Professeur: dynamique et professionnel. Personnel: attentionné et sympathique. Hébergement: pratique et confortable. Nourriture: variée et de qualité. Que dire de plus sur l'école/ auberge Blink?! Le bâtiment est situé dans un quartier sécuritaire de Medellin, et ce à quelques minutes du supermarché, de la station de métro sans oublier la "zona rosa" (lieu central pour restaurant et bar). Le fait d'habiter sur place et d'avoir certains repas d'inclus simplifie grandement le séjour. Une panoplie d'activités hebdomadaires sont proposées pour une fraction du prix offert par les agences touristiques. C'est non sans peine que j'ai du quitter cette institution mais avec plein de nouveaux savoirs et de bons souvenirs. Je recommande sans hésitation!

  • review rating 5  I was privileged to be the first student of the Spanish school at Blink and it was a great experience! I had previously been at another Spanish school in Medellin but I had some basic gaps in my knowledge. Blink helped me to fill these gaps as well as learn a great deal more. There are rules and words to add to your vocabulary written throughout the house so even when you're not in class you are still learning. Also the breakfast and lunches are delicious and nutritious and all the staff are wonderful including Gavin! I would highly recommend this place to any seeking to learn Spanish or just as place to stay.

  • review rating 5  It's a really good hostel and a GREAT school. I only stayed for a week in the school but improved my spanish a lot! The atmosphere was great with wonderful teachers and helpful staff that were there when needed. The classes were in small an intimate groups which gave you a lot of space to talk and learn. When I get back to medellin I won't hesitate to go to Blink and do another week! Thanx for all!

  • review rating 5  I never had so much fun while learning a language. And I never progressed that fast. Blink has not only developed a concept of teaching that makes learning fun, but also created an atmosphere in the school and hostel that is both joyful and supportive. I enjoyed my time here a lot and even came back for another week! That's a high five, Christian & Team, you're doing an awesome job! Thank you!

  • review rating 5  Only had enough time to study for a week but would have loved to stay for longer. Christian has created a great environment for people to learn and live together and it's not even been going a year! I took my Spanish to the next level, met some amazing people and made some great memories in the beautiful city of Medellin. Highly recommended!

  • review rating 5  Just finished my 2nd week at Blink. In that short amount of time, my speech became more fluid and could talk in any tense (pasado o futuro). As soon as you wake up...spanish. The spanish immersion is no joke! Surrounded by Spanish speakers, tools, words, and other diligent students unlocks the language quick. Doing research.... it was obviously the most afforadable, especially for how small the class is and how many in-class hours you recieve. Plus, you're in Medellin... El Poblado... its awesome. The employees are incredible and do their absolute best to make you comfortable and happy. And Christian y Gavin, los jefes, is truly an amazing man. He is the heart of the organization and will do whatever it takes to improve yourself. I highly recommend Blink! Hazlo!

  • review rating 5  I don't normally write reviews, but I just really enjoyed my time at this place. So, Purple monkey next door was full so I was lucky enough to come across this place that just so happen to be opening. The beds here are fantastic and the one I used was concrete on both sides with it's own light switch and curtain for privacy. It was really nice having a little "cave" all to myself. This place has the best shower I've ever come across in life...hot water is easy to obtain and remains consistent and the water pressure is fantastic...that right there deserves 5 stars. The staff was also amazing and welcoming. My bed was always cleaned and my belongings and clothes which I carelessly threw around my cave were nicely folded and placed neatly together...I wasn't expecting it, but it was much nicer to come back to than how I left it prior. Christian, the owner, was a really cool guy and had plenty of suggestions of activities that I do in town. Natalia from the front desk was great to talk to as well. I didn't have too much time here, but was able to see other students studying and practicing Spanish and could see that it would be a great way to learn. Based on what I saw I would highly recommend this place and would love to come back to learn some Spanish!
