The Wandering Paisa Backpackers Hostel
The authentic paisa backpackers experience! Centrally located and closest to the Metro and the "Local Zona Rosa". Safe, clean, and relaxing.
Managed by an American and a Colombian, we seek to immerse travellers in the local "Paisa" culture while providing them with a safe and comfortable place to stay.
Inside the hostel, travellers can relax and play Nintendo Wii on our 42-inch plasma screen T.V. equipped with cable television and a large selection of DVDs. For stunning views of the surrounding mountains, travellers can climb to the top of our castle-like terrace located on the roof of the building.
*We also offer spanish lessons and volunteer work*
If you are feeling social, you can kick it in our "Paisa Bar" which serves both non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages. Occasionally, local musicians have been known to play live music on our sundeck/stage, while travellers chill out on hammocks and listen to the grooves on the nearby balcony.
We have a zero tolerance policy with all illegal substances. Violators will be kicked out without any exceptions.
If you wish to have fun, make sure you check out our bar!
