I stayed in a dorm and found it a very nice and clean hostel. The staff is friendly and the acomadations are good! For me it was very nice that is was close to the university where I was going to do an exchange.

We are a family of four that were travelling through Colombia. We rented a group private room with a private bath that had a large bed and two bunk beds. The staff were friendly and helped us with whatever questions we had. The highlight for the kids was the pool and hammocks. I enjoyed meeting other travelers. A guest with... More

It took me and my boyfriend a while to find for a hostel in Medellin that had good critics and that was not a party place. Finally we found the Waypoint Hostel and we stayed 3 nights, and we were not disappointed. It's a very good place. The hostel staff is very friendly and helpful with any question you may... More

Good value, big beds, good covers, helpful staff. The swimming pool is nice too. The area is full of students. Bars nearby, short ride to the centre. It was nice - 200 characters is a lot to write though.

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

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
