A great hostel with all you need in Medellin. Located in a nice area surrounded by many restaurants. At approx. 20 walk from Poblabo metro station you feel secure in Medellin while still been able to easily access downtown during the day. The hostel has a nice shared area and visitors are respectful. And definitely world travelers.

Saman Hostel is one of my favorite hostels. I have been backpacking through Eastern Europe, Central America &South America for several months. Saman has a great kitchen, staff are very helpful. Laundry service is done in a few hours for a very reasonable price. If are lucky to meet the owner, he will give you even greater hospitality. I got... More

There are loads of bars, restaurants and clubs in walking distance and the area itself is very picturesque with tree lined streets, streams and small parks. The hostel is small... More

I stayed with a friend in a 6-bed dorm in Saman for 2 nights, and I had a bit of a mixed experience. The rooms were basic but nice and clean and the bathrooms were clean and had hot water. There was a common area with some seating where they also had live music one night which was nice, and... More

This hostel may have a lot of good things (big clean bathrooms, full kitchen, nice bedsheets, quiet atmosphere and a lot of green!!!) and some others not as good, but what really makes this place very special is its owner (Alejandro) and his crew. When u walk in there u feel like home right away. It is one of those... More

We stayed at Saman Hostel in one of their private rooms for 11 nights. Their building and rooms are clean, well-maintained and safe! They are also walking distance to the nightlife and restaurants near Parque Lleras and to the language school Toucan Spanish. Another plus is that the owner and the people who work there are so welcoming and considerate.... More
