Very friendly and helpful staff. Relaxed atmosphere with staff and guests chatting in Spanish and English. Courtyard/bar/dining area - with palm tree. Location - a short walk to metro station past local shops, cafes and bars. Felt very safe at all times and easy to get to places using the metro.

Spent one night in a private room. Room and shared bathroom were clean, though I didn't appreciate a guest hanging up his underwear in the bathroom to dry (I'm glad you're comfortable and free with your unmentionables, but I don't want to see it, thanks!) The facilities looked great, including the pool and the kitchen. Staff was friendly enough. There didn't seem to be too many people there but again, I was just using this place to sleep for the night.

There were several things I liked about the Wandering Paisa. The location is wonderful and in a great area, but what makes it special is its character, it is more of an experience than anything else. The staff are incredibly friendly and attentive to every kind of need one could have. The owners put on certain events throughout the week, ranging from free salsa classes, language exchanges, and even karaoke. That is what made the difference, It is a great place to meet other solo travelers and or locals!

Very friendly and helpful staff, especially Ana. 61 Prado Guesthouse is a nice and cool hostel; it's a pleasure to stay there. The single room was big enough, breakfast was fine and using their WiFi was no problem at all. Furtheron it's close to the metro and 4 attractions. Last but not least it is - compared to others - quite economical.
