What can I say? The hosts and hostesses of saman are highly knowledgable, friendly, and positive! Nothing like waking up to fresh coffee and friuits every morning! They begin their day by greeting you and ready to tend to your needs whether it's doing laundry, giving an introduction of Medellin, fixing your bed, or constantly mopping the floors. Their location... More

Hostel Saman is a very friendly hostel . It's got a guest kitchen, very clean bathrooms and comfortable beds and dormitorys. The location is great : just a few minutes from Parque lleras. The people working there are super friendly and very helpful.

First we really liked Saman Hostel. The private rooms are cozy (although very loud at weekends because of the nearby club), its very clean, its in the middle of El Poblado, the staff is friendly and helpful, the kitchen is well equipped. The common area is nice but lacks a table where you can eat. Some days later we realized... More

I spent over three weeks here last December and loved this place. For me it was the perfect hostel, not too loud and crazy, but plenty of people around to hang out with when in the mood for socializing. The staff was great and super friendly too! Te extrano Saman Hostel.

I stayed here for 4 nights and really enjoyed it. Eventually, I did end up going to other, more party hostels, to meet some friends. If I were to go to Medellin again, I would go back to Hostel Saman in a heart beat. If you are looking for a hostel, quiet but close to the action, then this is... More

My girlfriend and I stayed 4 nights in Saman hostel, and we enjoyed the location, the fruit and coffee every morning, and the friendly staff. There was also a good atmosphere and interesting travellers there. One con was the noise, as we could hear the clubs behind the hostel, but that's because we were in one of the private rooms...

Staying at Saman house was an absolute pleasure. Close to the famous Medellin nightlife of Poblado and 5 minutes from the efficient tube system. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful in informing about what there is to do, tours and other activities. Rooms and bathroom were always clean. Free wifi. Economic prices for a great stay. Would strongly... More

I stayed here in a private 3 person room with two friends. The location was great, close to everything. The room was spacious and immaculately clean with its own private TV and fan. The kitchen was well equipped and clean, we cooked in almost every morning and night. The staff were great, the hostel was secure with lockers if you... More
