Although Waypoint did not have any availability on Hostelworld, when we called them they had two beds for us, so we headed there.
The hostel is in the Poblado area, but it is about twenty blocks from Parque Lleras, where most of the bars, restaurants and clubs are. However, it is less than a five minute walk to the Aguacatala subway station, so the location is not a problem. We walked from Parque Lleras to the hostel at night and felt very safe.
The staff at Waypoint were absolutely excellent -- from Diego's lovely Sunday afternoon barbecue, to Gina, who booked our bus tickets and had them dropped off at the hostel. Our dorm was very spacious, with good, firm beds and hot showers. We enjoyed relaxing in the hammocks and also, the hostel provided two computers with free internet access, which meant at least one computer was free at all times while we were there. Breakfast was not included, but the free coffee was delicious!
I would definitely recommend Waypoint to anyone travelling through Medellin.More
