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

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

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.
