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.

Great hostel! Fun place with good people. Nice to be staying away from the upmarket tourist area of Poblado, but still many good bars and restaurants around. Easy to get any with the metro station so close. Rooms can get kinda loud at night with the bar downstairs but depends on the night. Would definitely stay again!

Hands down my favourite hostel in Colombia! Out of Poblado you get to see a different side of the city. The staff are amazing and speak both Spanish and English. They organize different events weekly to mingle with other guests and locals in Medellin! Facilities were great and location was perfect. Would highly recommend the wandering paisa

Very chilled out hostel. Beds were comfy but quite short. In the six bed dorm if there were actually six people there would be no room for bags, there were four of us and no floor space left. Upstairs toilets kept running out of paper and being left empty for ages which was frustrating. Staff were lovely and helpful and it was kept very clean. Good location right near lots of restaurants and bars and close to the metro.

The location was probably the biggest factor and it did not have a really friendly vibe. We moved to The Garden of Blues hostel which was more central, had a great atmosphere and very hospitable staff.

Great place to stay! Awesome vibe with loads of people, all of whom are always keen to socialise. Not a party hostel but not quiet - I'd say they've got the balance just right between the two. Highly recommended - would stay again!

I was supposed to stay here for one week and ended up staying for almost three. The Wandering Paisa is by far my favorite hostel. Great location, friendly (Spanish and English speaking) staff. Be sure to participate in the weekly events... you meet so many locals and other travelers this way! THEY ARE SO MUCH FUN. Loved the bar and the snacks. They have direct tv and NFL Sunday ticket. I stayed in the six-bed dorm and appreciated the extra outlets. Beds are super sturdy. Lots of bathrooms.

Good - location, facilities Bad - sometimes the bathrooms aren't cleaned days (and when there are limited bathrooms, it gets pretty gross!), lack of space/security in rooms, e.g. the lockers available are really small so you can't fit much in them. Also they don't control noise. There are guests screaming in the hostel at 1am on occasion. It didn't bother me, but if you had an early bus or something.... Must get a bit annoying.

The wandering paisa hostel offers a great stay in a fantastic area. The atmosphere in the hostel was good, this was due to the openness of all Travellers, the most friendly reception team and fun free areas. The metro is within walking distance and offers the possibility of fast and secure transportation wherever you want to go. The rooms were always clean, the bar ridiculously cheap and the free spaces are fun.
