Born in Medellín, Hinestroza played for lowly CF Ferroválvulas de Medellín before passing in a trial at Atlético Nacional in October 2010. He failed to adapt into his new team, suffering with injuries and being also with dual registration problems.
Despite appearing regularly during the pre-season (also occasionally playing as a left back), He only appeared in one league game for Atlético Nacional, a 1–2 home loss against La Equidad on 31 August 2011.
On 23 January 2012 Hinestroza moved to La Equidad. He scored his first goal on 17 June, netting his side's last in a 2–2 home draw against Independiente Santa Fe. He was an ever-present midfield unit during Equidad's following campaigns.
On 8 July 2014 Hinestroza moved abroad for the first time in his career, joining La Liga side Getafe CF in a one-year loan deal. He made his debut in the competition on 24 August, coming on as a second half substitute for Pablo Sarabia in a 1–3 away loss against Celta de Vigo.
