I have stayed here for couple times already, basically anytime I go back to Medellin, because I love to return here. Great location, very nice and friendly staff, clean and small so you don't bump into too many people and wait for shower or toilet. Its on the main road, so its easy to walk to bars, restaurants, shops, catch... More

Hostel ist very good located in poblado, near to zona rosa (Party Zone). The Problem is that the Bathrooms are realy very small and everything is broken and in the rooms there is no possibility to hang your clothes on somewhere. I think in Medellin there are better Hostels like the Happy Budha ore the Black Sheep.

Made a reservation @ Saman same-day, but they were oversold, which was kind of a bummer on our late night arrival. Location seems solid, but the good news is that they walked us over to a better option at the same price. Be sure to confirm whatever you book, as you don't know what you'll end up getting.

The staff was great! Therefore I could not understand why the owner treated them very very poorly. I observed how the owner showed up and treated his employees like servants. He obviously uses to the fullest extent the employment situation in Medellin to his advantage. I think such a business owner doesn't deserve any support. But there are other reasons... More

Looking for some place to crash the night in Medellin for "La Feria de las Flores" I found only expensive hotels and really-not-convienient hostels. Nonetheless I finally found this friendly, safe, clean, really-cheap (I think it's the cheapest hostel in El Pueblo area), and really-well located hostel in Calle 10! and only few block away from Parque Lleras. Its staff,... More
