Great welcome and orientation on arrival. Great service. Fruit and coffee in the morning were very nice. The rooms are as expected. Always tidy. Laundry available. Excellent location, close to Lleras park which is a great tourist spot. Cool relaxed atmosphere.

This is a lovely hostel in every way and of a small size which makes it intimate and warm. Impeccably clean in bathrooms and kitchen, comfortable beds, great location and all kinds of little touches to make a traveller feel they have arrived at a home away from home. But far and away the jewel in its crown is the... More

Excellent stay! Very nice location and accommodation. We were sorry to checkout and wanted to stay on longer. Very clean and well cared for. Hot water would be the only addition I could think of. Absolutely would return. Well done!

When I stayed here I felt very much at home. Dani made my trip very pleasant and she was there to help with everything I needed. I will definitely be returning here. Overall, this was a very pleasant trip to medellin and my stay here certainly added to that.

When I was visiting Medellin, I felt that Samán Hostel was my home and the staff were my new friends. But also I got to sleep in a stylish hostel with clean rooms, wonderful showers. The kitchen was perfect to cook, and the TV lounge spacious and comfortable. They didn't have breakfast but they gave me fresh fruit and Colombian... More

Having just come from a large hostel, Samán is just what I needed. My favorite things about this hostel is how clean it is! The bathrooms, the dorms, the shared spaces--immaculate. The showers are so great. The kitchen is huge, for those big on cooking. Laundry is very fairly priced. I'd return here, and highly recommend it!

While in Medellin my wife and I had the pleasure of staying in this lovely hostel in El Poblado at a very reasonable price. The rooms were clean and quiet; the staff friendly and full of advice; and the location is great - two blocks from the Zona Rosa, 15 minute walk to the Metro station and plenty of options... More

I booked a room at that hostel for three nights. I showed up personally to choose a room. When we wanted to move in we got another, much smaller room. When I consisted of getting our room it worked, but they seemed to be less friendly afterwards. After two nights they told us that we had to Check out, because... More

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.
