Reviewed 8 November 2016 via mobile

The double bed room was clean, a little small, and too much noise from other guests during the night, mainly because the roof of the room was not completely sealed to the aisle. The hostel was good though, very nice, and the staff very simphathetic. The front door is open 24 hours, wich is good.

The hostel is clean, good staff. The rooms are clean and confortable, but the double room doesn't have much space, but is ok. The place has swimming pool, different areas out and inside the building. There is three bathrooms. I strongly recommend this place to stay if you are looking for good value and good place.

I have been to many hostels in Colombia, and Waypoint Hostel was the best experience for me and my friends. I wanted to stay at a nice, quiet hostel but near poblado area and I think I was in the perfect place, because Lleras park is noisy. We enjoyed the pool inside the hostel. The room was so clean, the...

This has truly been one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. It wasn't too big but you were able to get to know new people. It was safe and the people working at the hostel were always open for a chat, kind and knew who you were. It's located close to university EAFIT, to supermarkets, shopping malls,...

I had decided to come back to stay at Waypoint Hostel since it was a comfortable place right next to the university where I took Spanish courses at back 3 years ago. However, although I had originally planned to stay at this hostel for 3 nights, I could no longer stay after getting bitten by bedbugs (there could have been...

Waypoint is definitely one of the greatest hostels I have ever been to. My staying was so delightful, that I fell compelled to write a proper evaluation here: 1) Location: walking distance from Aguacatala Metro Station. The neighbourhood is safe, clean and within 5 minutes walk from restaurants, shops, supermarkets and cinemas. Poblado is definitely the place to be in...

I stayed at Waypoint in the large dorm room for 6 nights while in Medellin. It's located right around the corner from Aquacatala metro station. So, it made getting around Medellin really easy. The staff was super friendly and super helpful! The washrooms were always very clean and so was the full size kitchen. This place also has a large...

Payment is required on entry. When I decided to leave early. Informing them the day before, they only returned 80%, leaving COP 27,000 in effect stolen. The receptionist was then rude and hostile calling me a gringo in a sneering tone. I was told to be careful as a gringo has not the same rights in Colombia as a Colombian....

Mr Lindsay, First of all we would like to thank you for visiting us. Second, we were surprised how your personality changed suddenly. The first day you were really friendly talking about how good would be for you to buy an old Volskwagen Bettle because they´re really cheap in Colombia. Remember when you Cheked In at the hostel that you...
