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

**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

    This was a lovely hostel. The staff were so friendly and they had great events going on like language exchange. They are in a good area close to the metro and it is easy to get everywhere. Our room smelt a bit funky but I feel that was other guests fault and not the hostel. The bunks were comfy and the dorms week set up. Would recommend and stay here again.

    Great hostel in a perfect location for exploring Medellin! The area has loads of great street food, cafes and restaurants and is very close to the metro and football stadium. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Very sociable hostel with a cheap bar and great social spaces with hammocks. Only thing was showers were mostly cold and bunk beds were a bit awkward to get in to.

    I had a great stay at the Wandering Paisa. The location is perfect, just 5 minutes from estadio metro station which gives you very fast access to places like comuna 13 and downtown, also calle 70 which is just 2 blocks away has everything you could want to buy eat drink during your stay. The staff were super friendly and facilities were good too. Met some nice people here and had a lot of fun, would definitely reccomend.

    Overall a good stay at the hostel, the people are all super friendly but it can be quite quiet in the evenings. It’s a good location near a metro station, with a supermarket and street food options. Average cleanliness but a good amount of bathrooms for all the beds.

    Decent hostel with friendly staff and good communal areas. Downside was that the 6 bed dorm was tiny, with nowhere to put bags which resulted in having to climb over various bags to get out bed. The en suite was clean and ironically really big.
