Pro's: Good locations near metrostation and supermarkets. Helpfull staff. They gave us a upgrade from a dorm to a private double room because everything was fully booked. The Wifi is good. Comfortable rooms and big kitchen. Con's: Breakfast was poor. Just dry bread with thee and instant coffee. No marmalade or cheese or... The bed in the double room is very hard, it's like sleeping on a wooden bench. The showers are cold. But it's a new hostel with a lot of potential!


It was not clear when I arrived that I had booked a hammock, not a bed, so I had to pay extra for a bed. Also it was advertised that tehre would be breakfast. Apparently Sunday is the only day when they don't do breakfast, also not on the website. Not very happy that the staff informed me that making breakfast is too much work.

We had called the police because you didn't want to pay the room, besides you've got upset and aggressive with the hostels staff and the owner. not taking into account the guest's peace because you're disturbing them. At the check in time you didn't want the hammocks room and we changed you to the 4 beds room which is more expensive compared to the hammocks beds, we indicated you the price and you didn't have problem.We'll send you an email with rest of the answer to your malicious comment.Tks.


I stayed here for 4 nights. The hostel is located really close to the metro station and main street. Security is good and kitchen bathroom is clean. The house keeper lady worked very hard. The only thing which I don't like is the free breakfast is not on time. So we had to wait. Apart from that this place is great. The staffs are friendly, wifi is very strong, there is nice TV room with hammock. I strongly recommend this place. It's worth visiting.

Thanks for stay with us, we hope to see you soon, and sorry for the breakfast time. big hug.


We spent three nights in hammocks at Paisa City Hostel. The location is really close to the Estadio metro station, and from the stadium. We had a very nice night out with the staff of the hostel which has been very helpful about the things we could do in Medellin (a city we would definately recomend)! The area is quiet and very safe, and when Paola will have finished all the renovation, this will really be a great place! Thanks!

you will always in our memories, we hope to see you again.


Loved this hostel. The owners are so lovely and fun, and made our experience in medellin. We played music together in the evenings and hung out. It is 1 minute from the metro, which is perfect for exploring the city, but it's in a nice quiet location, with comfy beds and hang out areas. Paula
