Love this place! The guys working here are really awesome! The common areas are great for hanging out with the other people staying at the hostel. And the beds are really nice! There is a nice kitchen as well if you want to cook your own food.

Stopped in great staff, Dave is the man. Clean and nice atmosphere, beautiful hostel. Outside has a great place to have a few beers at night and a smoke, which is nice because in Medellin it is a new law there is no drinking in the streets. Vivo Colombia

Great atmosphere, very welcoming crew and English is available for those who need. Tiger is close to a lot of bars and restaurants too which is handy. The room was clean and came with a fancy little soap. Would recommend! Dave is a pretty OK guy

DO NOT STAY HERE. This was literally the worst hostel I have ever stayed in! 1. The staff are incredibly unprepared and unprofessional they seem like a group of teens decided to run a hotel and have no idea what they are doing. One didn't even speak Spanish or English properly, only French. 2. The hostel is gross, the surfaces...

We stayed three nights at the Tiger Paw Hostel. Why? Because it is in the cheaper range of the area, only 28.000 pesos per night in a three bed dorm. The hostel is quite clean, well located and the staff is mostly friendly. One big disadvantage: the walls are kind of thin, so you hear everything, espacially from the lobby....

Thank you for your review. In regards to the music, we do have a bar within the hostel and we do play music normally until midnight when the bar closes (or earlier if no one is at the bar). During that time, we were testing out a DJ to see if it would benefit the bar. WE DO NOT hire...

1. The worst service in reception I have ever seen in hotel-hostel industry. Spoiling the whole experience in Medellin. 2.

When guests come in and demand things right from the beginning and are extremely rude, it's kind of hard to provide the best service possible. Every hostel has the same rule within, they are not responsible for your personal items. That's why there are lockers for you to use. We have to run a business here and can't watch your...
