The Paraworld hostel was an excellent experience. Florian, the owner, is personable and accommodating. There are lockable storage spaces provided in the dorms, with keys provided by the hostel.
The hostel upholds a no-shoes policy, which keeps the space clean with a home feel. The TV area is a comfortable place to relax and socialize.
The hostel is in a great location: a one minute walk away from some excellent restaurants, and about 5 minutes away from the Poblado metro station, and 10 minutes away from Zona Rosa. It's also situated a street back from the busy thoroughfare, which keeps the noise down. A good pick for those who are sleep-deprived from the noisy party hostels.
Go on a tandem paragliding flight with Florian! He was safe, professional, and best of all, inexpensive.
