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

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

    This place is perfect for its price point honestly. I really recommend it for those travellers that want to try something different from poblado. I loved the location. It is not a trendy or boutique hostel and it doesn’t claim to be - this is fine and it works. The staff are great and super helpful, one guy particular was super kind and friendly - thank you. Yeah - no issues at all.. thank you TWP!

    Very great people here. And, they speak ENGLISH, so you want have any issues with communication. Ojo, don'y place items on the piano se enoje mucho. I want to thank Andres for helping me with my homework assignment; he is a solid host and will assist you with you adopting to the local culture. Also, they have a salsa night which provides backpackers with an opportunity to meet locals.

    The beds are comfy, stayed in a 6 bed dorm which was somewhat cramped and limited space to store your backpack and things. No air conditioning but there was a fan in the room. The water pressure in the shower was low and struggled to find warm water but the hot weather was due for a cold shower. No breakfast but in a good location to search for a nice cafe or restaurant. Great kitchen, sometimes not clean due to guests not taking care but super friendly and helpful staff.

    I had a blast at this hostel . I extended my stay there from 3 to 7 days. Great location too. The only annoying part was that Mexican bartender who was volunteering there. He was super annoying and arrogant. The staff was quite friendly . Totally recommended !!

    I stayed in a private room, which was air conditioned and had a private en suite bathroom. I stayed during the COVID pandemic, so my experience is probably significantly different than a normal stay. This hostel is located less than a 5 minute walk from the famous discoteca area on Carrera 70. Due to the pandemic, there weren't many other guests to meet and the discotecas were open but mostly empty. Still, I had an amazing time in the area and enjoyed my stay.
