The hostel is located near calle 10 in El Poblado, that's a huge plus and one of the reasons I chose to stay there. Staff is friendly and cheapest dorm-bed was good enough I you need a place to stay for a good price. the hostel itself is a bit old and Medellin's weather doesn't help at all... it can... More

Straight to the point the main problem with this hostel is the manager Annie. The staff otherwise are good! The problem with her is that of your a group of guys staying here she is very friendly and flirty. However if you a girl and decide to speak to this group of guys then she becomes very unpleasant to you... More

Stayed there for a night from Friday to Saturday. Don't expect to get too much sleep there during the weekend as this hostel is close to the/a party zone in El Poblado. Not so good value for money. My room (single room) was rather dark and not too clean. Staff is friendly though and Internet ok. Wouldn't do it again.

Tiger paw is managed very well by ints new owners Sebastian, an his Girlfriend. They provide very clean rooms, a positive atmosphere and clean amenities.

Loved my stay at the tiger paw hostel. we arrived on the day that management changed over, and so there was obviously a few administrative details they were still getting their hands on... while this could have ruined the experience at any other hostel, here the staff were so genuinely helpful, kind, lovely and fun that we ended up staying...

I dont understand people staying in the hostels out of the town, on the map this place is the perfect location, its close to the Metro, but if you stay the other side of the metro you will have walk up the hill to find the things you need. This location has to be one of the best in the... More

I stayed a week at this hostel and had a great time. There is a god bar, pool table and movie area. The kitchen is small but was never busy when I was there. I think the manager was quite new as he didn't know the prices of things in the bar and mixed up our bill on check out... More

I loved this hostel . It's well ubicated,confortable beds, the staff is friendly and one very important thing is that bathrooms are clean all the time. There is a bar and a pool table that make a nice place to have a beer. Fridays have free salsa lessons :) I really recommend this place

Nice friendly hostel in the heart of night life in Medellin. A little bar inside with a nice pool table. Clean spacious room will definitely refined it but if you are staying during the weekend and want to sleep avoid room number one it can get very noisy, other than that perfect
