Located right in the heart of Poblado, by far the coolest neighborhood in awesome Medellin, the Saman was a great spot to meet up folks to enjoy the cool parties and bars at hectic Parque Lleras, just down a couple of blocks. All the same it felt pretty laidback, so you just might wanna take your time to recover crashing...

Me and my boyfriend stayed there for 3 nights and we felt like at home. The hostel is nicely decorated and clean. It also has a good kitchen. But the best of this hostel is the people working there! They are professional, helpful and welcoming! Nos sentimos como si tuvieramos una familia en Medellín :)

We spent our first three nights in Colombia here. Nice hostel, conveniently located with friendly (Spanish speaking) staff. Clean bathrooms, nice showers. And the breakfast was great! Many nice restaurants, bars and coffee places in the area. Metro stop ten minutes walking from the hostel.
