Based on reviews on TripAdvisor and hostel booking sites my girlfriend and I decided to book into this hostel for 2 nights in a 5 bed mixed dorm (September 2014). Here are some of the negative things about staying here: 1. Bed Bugs - My girlfriend and I woke up after this first night with lots of bites. At first... More

We stayed here for 4 nights recently and loved the place. We had a double room which was very clean and had a big comfy double bed in it. The communal area is lovely and comfy with places to sit and lie and also a big TV. Although it's not a party hostel we still met some great people here... More

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
