The perfect place to share with friends. Your fill well from the first moment and relax. Quite but at the same time located close to the best party spots in Medellin. The clima is a must in this wonderful city!

The free WIFI worked well. The main attraction for me was the swimming pool. The staff is great especially Jimmy who took the time to... More

This is a sweet little hostel. Nice staff (but don't all speak English), pool is good and clean but there isn't much space around it to lounge in the sun. Good WiFi, but went down quite often. Good kitchen with nice clean and new utensils. Can smoke outside. Good communal areas to meet people or relax. Plugs in rooms are... More

The place is kept very clean and has a great kitchen for cooking up meals and spacious dorms with lockers. It is located very close to the metro system but is a bit of a walk... More

Waypoint is a very nice hostel with really friendly staff. They have good facilities showers, lounges, computers and a pool. Most important everything is always kept very CLEAN. It is 7 minutes walk from a metro which will take you anywhere in the city that you want to go. The only drawback is that it is not a party spot.... More

Waypoint hostel was my first and only hostel experience in Medellin. Since I very much enjoyed it and bonded both with guests and staff it will probably remain the only hostel to go for. It is in walking distance to the metro and important bus routes and fairly close to bar districts. Reasonable pricing and chilled atmosphere (not party 24/7,... More

Medellin was my first destination of Southamerica. I studied spanish at EAFIT University, which is located 100 metres from Waypoint Hostel, so excellent for students. Further, the station Aguacatala of Medellin Metro is reachable within 2 minutes walk, another plus. You also find different supermarkets within a 10 minutes walk. The hostel was really clean and the stuff more than... More

I stayed at Waypoint for around a month earlier this year. The hostel is great and it's really well located if you're studying at Universidad EAFIT. Also the owner, Diego, is amazingly knowledgeable about Medellin and all of Colombia. No matter where you're traveling in Colombia he'll be able to give you a million and one amazing suggestions for things... More

I was disappointed from the start! :( We had previously stayed in a really cozy hostel in Bogota. The receptionist greeted us at the door and patiently waited while we took care of a cab driver who wanted more money. He introduced himself to us, he gave us a tour, the wi-fi code, and the room felt like one straight... More
