Located in a cool part of town there are lots of restaurants/bars around. Hostel bar is good and the staff are amazing. Went totally out of their way and spent lots of time to help us change a flight. Highly recommend!

Amazing hostel!!!!!! one of the best stays I have ever had and I have stayed in quite a few hostels. The staff works really hard to make sure you have a true Colombian experience and see more than most backpackers do. STAY HERE IF YOU COME TO MEDELLIN!!!!

Paisa was great but definitely seemed more catered to the long term traveler than shorter term vacationers. Language exchange great way to interact with Medellin locals.

This place was great. Unfortunately we arrived late at night and didn't get to take advantage of all it had to offer but I would definitely go back and even recommend it to others.

A lovely area in Medellin if you want a more local and less touristy experience than in Poblado, with good facilities, lockers and a/c in the room, a fully equipped kitchen to cook and a social bar to chill at. Staff were super friendly and cheerful which added to the great vibe of the place. Metro and supermarket are both a short 5-10 min walk away. Could have been a bit more social for a hostel but overall a lovely stay in Medellin!

Great hostel! Very friendly staff, and a great atmosphere. Perfect location in laureles right near El estadio and the metro. Much better neighborhood than poblado!

Great facilities, staff are helpful and polite. Location is very close to Estadio metro station (and the stadium itself, if you're interested in catching a game or two). Just off la 70, and not too far from 33, which is a decent nightlife alternative to Poblado (and a bit more Colombian!). Not sure why, but it can be a very antisocial kind of hostel. People don't interact as much as other hostels (even non-party hostels). There's a cool bar and TV room so not sure why that is.

Tiny rooms, unhelpful staff and the laundry service is terrible. Best thing about it is the kitchen!

Good location, close to metro estadio, or 20 minutes walk to the city center. Shops, restaurants, bars, very close.
