I loved this hostel. We ended up staying here longer than planned because we liked it so much. It's a great balance between everything my friend and I were looking for. It's in a great area within walking distance of plenty of stuff to do and the metro station (this is kind of a longer walk, maybe 1 km). It's... More

Also Anjelica(checked me in and was very helpful and hospitable) , Julian(super laid back bartender dude), Ana, and Juliana(found some bath soap for... More

I had reviewed about 3-4 hostels to choose from and walked into this one first and stayed. I've been to many hostels before so as a salty budget traveler I can say this place is very comfortable, well organized, and fun for its budget cost. I chose the 6-dorm room upstairs with fan only and it was just fine being... More

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
