Property Description

Located the closest to the Metro and the Local Zona Rosa, 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.

**love sports?** we now have DirectTV, featuring most Champions League, NBA, NFL and other professional sports games. with over 14 channels dedicated to sports!

*we now offer FREE salsa lessons!*

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.

*We also offer spanish lessons and volunteer work*

*****For Paragliding, come enjoy the colombian thermic flying conditions in a paraglider parapente, which professional paragliders have said to have the smoothest easiest climbing and 'bodie' thermals that can exist. There is a great end of the day glassoff, where maintaining altitude is no problem and completely smooth laminar air. We offer tours for these great conditions and this awesome experience. Ask our reception for more info. ********

    Nice hostel in Laureles barrio, not far from the stadium and la carrera setenta. Super friendly staff always happy to help and recommend good tours and preferred activity operator. Premises are nice and comfortable. Good quality beds, hammocks, equipped kitchen.. Salsa lesson nights, language exchange in situ. I wish I came on a more busy time but really appreciated my stay!

    Lovely little hostel on a quiet street. Not much of an atmosphere but stayed there in low season so understandable. Stayed in a private room which was good value for money except our room did not have any windows as shown in pictures so was quite dark. Patio area outside is lovely

    This had a good recommendation from Lonely Planet however we feel it may be abit past it’s prime. Our room was basic, the common areas abit lacking, the kitchen and general spaces were dirty and lacking equipment. It’s a great location for north Medellin and good restaurants and bars tho. Nothing particularly wrong but nothing to get excited about either.
