With Blink's intensive program and experienced professors, our goal is to have you communicating in Spanish starting day one (and better each day).
Blink profitshares with each employee, and even houses employees. Because of our positive social approach, each employee and professor goes the extra mile to ensure you the best possible experience.

Learn

Intensive group classes and private classes included for every student.

Our Classic Blink Package includes 20 hours of daily classes and two private classes / week.  Private classes are expensive but EACH student needs them.  This improves the efficiency of each group class and saves you big $$. 

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  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 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  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  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  My time at Blink has been nothing short of amazing. From the moment I walked through the door there was a special vibe, the staff are excellent and will help whenever you need it, the teachers are superb and I have gone from having no base in spanish to now being adequate enough to work my way around south america. I would highly recommend any person travelling to Medellin, Colombia to stop in and study at Blink whether it is solely for private lessons or daily group classes.Blink provides great food for breakfast and lunch and will always offer to take any studentsout on group tours to tourist attractions in Medellin. Not only does Blink provide great service and value for money but I have had an amazing time with the students here, everyone is so welcoming and fun and it felt like a large family from the moment I arrived. It was a one of a kind experience at Blink and I plan to stay in touch with many people here.

  • 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 worked with Blink House for my first 2 weeks in Medellin, and it was such a great way to kick off my 2 months of language learning here. The language instruction was great, and I felt like it did a great job of keeping up with the pace I was learning at. I also love the Blink House space and vibe. Great neighborhood, pretty much in Poblado, but just off to the side, in the quieter, quaint Manila neighborhood, and a short walk into the heart of Poblado, with all it’s nightlife. Great restaurants around Blink House, too!
