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

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

The rooms at the street side are noisy. The windows have a opening and can't be closed. During the day there is a lot of traffic and at night you hear the party-folk screaming around. The hostel has bedbugs. We told them about it. Other guests told them before us and I read it here on tripadvisor that we are... More

After having travelled six months through South America, I can say with confidence that this is one of the best hostels available. The staff are the most friendly, laid back and efficient that I have ever come across. My partner had to be rushed to hospital during our stay in Medellin and the hostel staff were so helpful and accommodating,... More
