Property Description

Located close to the Metro and the local party area of “LA 70”, The Wandering Paisa offers the most authentic cultural experience in Medellin. We seek to immerse travelers in the local Paisa culture while providing them with a safe and comfortable place to stay with local activities and events.

Weekly Activities:
- Free Salsa Classes
- Language Exchange (meet locals!)
- Karaoke Night
- Stand Up Comedy
- Open Mic

**love sports?** we now have a sports package, featuring ALL Champions League, NBA, NFL , NHL, MLS , MMA/UFC and other professional sports games. PAY PER VIEW INCLUDED.

We are located in the upscale neighborhood of Laureles, a block from the local hotspots of La Setenta and La 33, where prices are affordable, the locals are plenty and the bar/club scene is vibrant. We also are less than 5 minutes walking from the Metro system, which can bring you virtually anywhere in the city.

Our knowledgeable and bilingual staff will be more than happy to provide you with any information on tourist activities in Medellin and the surrounding areas as well as make bookings for tourist activities and airport pickups.

Decorated with a bohemian theme that pays tribute to South American and Colombian culture, our hostel boasts some of the best services in town. With 4 dorms (no larger than 8 beds each) and 3 privates, every room in our hostel has its own unique country theme, each hand painted by local art students.

In our rooms, we have the best bunks in Medellin, designed with privacy dividers, orthopedic mattresses, and a locker for storage under the bed. Most importantly, these beds are not the kind that squeak or move when you climb up, allowing you to sleep comfortably in peace and quiet. We also have six fully remodeled bathrooms, with 24-hour hot water and brand-new computer workstations.

Inside the hostel, travelers can relax and play Nintendo Wii on our 42-inch plasma screen T.V. equipped with cable television and a large selection of DVDs. For stunning views of the surrounding mountains, travelers can climb to the top of our castle-like terrace located on the roof of the building. If you are feeling social, you can kick it in our 'Paisa Bar' which serves both nonalcoholic and alcoholic beverages.

Occasionally, local musicians have been known to play live music on our sundeck/stage, while travelers chill out on hammocks and listen to the grooves on the nearby balcony. We also have a huge kitchen, speedy laundry service, high-speed Internet access and free wifi. View House Rules

    Very relaxed hostel in a great area with super nice and helpful staff. There are a lot of activities that help you getting to know locals such as the free salsa classes and the language exchange. The only thing that annoyed me was that our room had its windows towards the balcony where everyone was smoking.

    Nice little hostel. A bit far from the city centre, but very close to the metro which makes it very easy. Staff is very friendly and knowledgable. Really appreciated the hot showers and very well stocked kitchen!

    Hot water needs to be available in the shower in the upper portion of the hostel. A pain in the bottom to have to gather up all bath material andthen wander on down to the hot waster shower just outside the bar/kitchen area!

    I think our time at the Wandering Paisa was more of an issue about us, then it was with the hostel itself. The hostel is super basic, but clean for the most part. It is as it’s described in the listing - no frills, just a cheap place to stay in a good location. Staff was nice too. We only ended up staying one night of our five night reservation because it ended up being more of a party than we were expecting. Our room was next to the bar and kitchen so noise was pretty relentless.

    The dorm room I had smelt really bad and had no ventilation to air it out. The bathrooms were gross, people don’t flush toilets and the showers were tiny and not very warm. People left their dishes lying about in the kitchen. I only saw one other female and the rest were males and a lot of older males which I did not totally feel comfortable about. Wouldn’t recommend for a solo female traveller. However, location is great right near the metro and some good cafes and staff were nice and helpful.
