I stayed for five nights at the beginning of June this year and found it very hard to leave. The staff, particularly Santiago and Annye were so friendly and helpful. It is a really comfortable hostel to stay in, I was in a six-bed dorm which was spacious, with individual small lockers at each bed for important items. I found... More

I've been staying at this hostel three times over the past five years. Every time I was happy to come back. The staff is nice and helpful, there is a big common area with a pool table and bar to socialize and the hostel is located really close to parque Lleras, where the party is happening. The dorms are clean... More

Great drink specials every night, close to Parque lleras where you have an abundance of food and bars ;) Close to ATM, supermarkets etc. They organised all tours paragliding, pablo escobar, free walking tour.

Annye was really kind and knowledgeable about where I needed to go. She was amazing. Viviana was great and really does a good job of keeping the hostel clean and the... More

The most important at the beginning: the staff is awesome! They are super friendly and helpful. Day and nightshift are just great people! The hostel is clean. The price for a dorm without AC is perfect (~7$) It got a pool table which is of course not high end, but its functional. A nice little rooftop, an own hostelbar, two... More

I stayed at a number of hostels in the El Poblado district of Medellin, and Tiger Paw was certainly my top pick. The location is perfect and facilities of the hostel great. Movie room, pool table and table tennis too. The bar is great, with much cheaper prices than expected. Finally a hostel that feels like they are not trying... More
