Liked: They have a big kitchen to prepare food.

Disliked: When I enter the hostel the first time a massive patty was going on and it was difficult to made it to the reception. The girl at the reception was already drunk and seems to be annoyed that I disturbed her during her party. You couldn't lock any of the dorm rooms and since on the party were a lot of people from outside who walked happily through the whole hostel I felt not that my things were very well protected. On the next day the place looked like a mess and it took them till the afternoon to clean it.

Liked: Had a great experience with The Wandering Paisa. I had intended on staying for 3 days and then finding an apartment, but ended up staying for a month and a half. The staff are all extremely helpful and friendly, they will also teach you Spanish if you want to learn. The owner is a good dude and takes pride in the hostel and is constantly improving it. They have weekly events that bring in a lot of people not staying in the hostel which makes it a great place to meet people. All in all a really laid back hostel in a good location.

Liked: Not much

Disliked: Two plugs in the room for a 6 bed dorm, they charge you if you want to use the computers at the "lobby", the room was cramped and no blankets. The toilet at the room was clogged..

Liked: There is a nice common area with hammocks and couches, that makes it easy to meet people. The staff is really helpful and friendly! And it's well located, the area around the hostel is pretty good, lots of place to eat and to have drinks, and there is a metro station close by, so it's easy to go around the city!

Disliked: It's a bit smelly downstairs
