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.

Great hostel, lady at the reception more than helpful (the one covering evening shifts). Comfy with a lot of space.

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!

This hostel is great! Staff super friendly especially the owner Brent who spent time trying to help my cousin and I find a sloth sanctuary in Colombia! Bar is really fun at night! Love that the hostel has group activities planned every night so travelers can get to know each other. Also like the hammocks upstairs and chill vibes. Hostel is in good location walking distance to a lot of restaurants and metro. Would definitely stay here 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
