I've stayed in hostels all over the world. And by far this is one of the best. I do suggest the ac room downstairs. Medellin isn't that hot. But when you're doing trips all day it's good to be in a good room. Staff was knowledgable and I was very happy. The new owner is david and he is an... More

One of the best locations possible for a hostel in Medellin. 2minute walk to Lleras Park and all the best action. Very safe and literally walk home at 7am with empty streets without concern. Unlike some of the other hostels in the area. Stayed 4 days and in that time the friendly staff made my stay very pleasant. Everyone is... More

My son and I stayed at the Tiger's Paw and had a truly wonderful time. The Paw is located in the Poblado area of Medellin, right in the middle of great bars, shops, and restaurants. The owner of the Paw is a young American, Dave, and he and his staff went out of his way to ensure our stay was... More

It's a kind of dumpy party hostel in Medellin. It was loud each night even on weekdays, wasn't the cleanest place, and had a weird American bro vibe. If you want a party hostel, it'll be fine. Avoid it if that's not what you're after. Staff interactions were fine. Neighborhood was fine and proximity to Parque Lleras was a plus... More

Staff are the nicest in Colombia, all the girls at the desk are very friendly and good fun, as are the cleaners. Owner is a very nice guy as well, with a lot of great ideas going forward. We stayed there 8 days and even in that short space of time the hostel improved and changed so its only going... More

First, this hostel is in a perfect location. It's literally steps away from Parque Lleras, the active park area in Medellin with several restaurants, bars, stores, and nightclubs. The hostel workers were very nice and even made sure as to that the guests were not leaving expensive items out in the open. I would definitely recommend you to stay at... More

intended stayin in medellin for two nights but ended up staying twice as long due to the embrace of not only this fantastic city but also the tiger paw hostel. The enthusiasm of its new owners for the city is honestly contagious and they helped us with all the laundry and boring issues we faced. The city is jammed packed... More

First impression was perfect, the welcoming committee made me feel like as was more than at home, it was spot on. The good time began with a "bienvenidos" shot and the fun I had continued throughout my stay. Free walking tour of the city, excellent food served at the in house restaurant which is popular with guests and locals alike.... More

Very helpful staff and a nice chill atmosphere! Superb location, very easy to find your way back after a night out. Ping pong table is off the hook! Dormbeds are comfy as hell, and the owner is an awesome guy! Also there is a pretty well equipped kitchen for self caterers! Check it out

Very convenient location, within 5min walk from el Parque Llenas, and yet no disturbed by the street noise. The hostel is fully equipped with Internet, TV space (incl DVDs), a bar that serves local beer (very cool) and a small outside terrace for the smokers (or not!). The only downside is the size of the kitchen - but at the... More
