Great hostel, especially if you don't want to stay in the overly touristy Miraflores. Good atmosphere in hostel although the bar can be noisy until 1am so not ideal if you want an early night. Fully equipped large kitchen. Bathrooms could have been kept a bit cleaner but it wouldn't stop me coming back. Staff really make this hostel as they are so helpful and lovely.

People in general were nice but there was something missing in the atmosphere to make it great. Not sure, more friendliness from the bartender or something to get the atmosphere going. The bathrooms could have been a lot cleaner. There were a lot of people staying and I feel it's important to keep it clean at all times. A lot of hair everywhere and the toilets were a bit gross. The room was good and clean and the staff were very cordial and attentive, excellent service, thank you.

A nice solid hostel outside the normal "tourist/hostel" area. Location is easy to get to; great restaurants and bars close by (Centro Trio Musical Restaurant!). Staff is friendly. Good atmosphere. Not too party, but not quiet either. Good value for $ considering its one of the cheapest ones. Beds are comfortable and the lockers fit your valuables. WiFi was decent, but streaming could be spotty. Lots of TV channels though. Cleanliness was my only major gripe. Hair EVERYWHERE on the "clean" sheets

It was really noisy at night and the dorm was extremely cramped.

Wandering Paisa is a decent hostel. Not far from the La Setente part of Laureles. Plenty of food options and grocery store a couple blocks away. The staff were very cool and many of them travelers themselves. If you are looking for the best nightlife Poblado is probably where you want to be, but Laureles has more locals and is less touristy. The rooms were a bit cramped, but I had one of the larger ensuites with a shower and toilet that I've seen in a hostel.

This is such a chill hostel, and really good for solo travelers. One of the best neighborhoods to stay in, that isn't the most touristic. Lots of restaurants and bars close by, always poppin'. Maybe not the most spacious place in the rooms, but they have a bar and a number of "chilling out" places spread out the property.

Cool hostel in a great part of th city. The bar gets pretty loud so good if you want to party not so good if you want to get an early night. Helpful staff who speak good English.

Awesome place. Not a party hostel but it has a good social vibe and it's easy to meet people in the bar downstairs. Close to local bars, restaurants and the metro station. The kitchen is really well equipped too.
