After searching high and low and walking around the block several times I finally found the place which once was paraworld hostel. There are now a couple of businesses operating out of the place. An American working there thought there was a hostel there a few years ago. There was meant to be another paraworld enterprise three blocks away. It... More

First the Hostal: Santiago and his staff were super friendly, and everyone asked if we needed anything. The attached cafe has incredible soups while the attached bar is tastefully decorated and active, without being noisy. Our plans after Medellin were up in the air, and Santiago helped us plan a fun route north on our motorcycle. I left my paragliding... More

My husband and I booked our first paragliding experience with paraworld. Florian picked us up from our hostal and took us to the site. The paragliding was amazing and all the staff very professional and helpful. Due to the wind, my husband was unable to fly for a couple of hours, so whilst we waited Florian took us on a... More

We had a supernice trip up to San Felix! Mada picked us up with one of their comfortable mini-buses, good music playing in there. We didnt even notice how long it took us to get there. We were there with 4 people, at this wonderful site, perfect weather and a good mood up there over Bello and Medellin. Only reason... More

As the previous review, we didn't stay at the hostel since we have relatives living in Medellin. The experience started with a last minute booking (we decided to go just as we woke up) and it was very pleasant to see how Florian was very helpful, offering us options on what we could do and even offering transportation (a plus...

We didn't stay at the hostel (though we wish we had now!) but we did the paragliding tour with Florian which was absolutely fantastic, and I'd highly recommend it! I was quite nervous but made to feel completely at ease, and had an amazing time - will definitely be doing it again. Florian is a really sound guy, and if... More

I travelled a lot in my life and saw dozens of hostels but this one hit the spot! It was very clean, well equiped, perfectly located and most importantly, I felt safe and people were super friendly. I recommend it to everybody looking for a place to stay in Medellin! I guess, this is how Switzerland is like - this... More

New little hostel, extremly friendly staff, clean (in a long-time traveller's opinion) no party-hostel, but not very quite either, you can hear all noise from the kitchen, tv, toilets, bedrooms (if there is noise), but did not really bother us. if you decide to stay here, even if flying is not the main reason, you have to go on a...

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... More

I came to Medellin without doing much research on where to stay. A Colombian friend reserved me a spot at Paraworld. At first glance, I wasn't sure if I'd stay more than a night. I was the only guest upon check-in and thought I might get lonely cause it was so quiet. I also chose a room that felt a... More
