Liked: Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean. Best hot shower Ive had in Sth America. Great place for couples to stay. Great location around the corner from Zona Rosa.

Disliked: Not really a criticism, but not a party hostel, so not the best place to meet people.

Liked: Our stay at Saman Hostel was wonderful for the 5 nights we were there. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The location is excellent, just a hop, skip and a jump away from the Parqua Lleras which is a fun place to go out on the weekends. The hostel is immaculate and the showers are amazing and HOT :) There is a big kitchen and they serve coffee and some fresh fruit in the morning. I liked how it was a bit quite too so you're not jammed packed trying to fight for use of the kitchen or bathrooms. I recommend 100%! Gracias a tod@s de Saman!

Liked: The hostel is located at the El Poblado district. You'll easily find some cool places to go out at night around this place. The staff was very friendly and willing to give helpful tips about the city or activities. (The showers are outstanding ;-)).

Disliked: If you have a light sleep, do not book the 5 bed dorm next to the street as it gets noisy during daytime.

Liked: very nice hostel. great facilities, well equipped kitchen for those who love to cook and strong free coffee all day. the hostel in well designed, and the staff very friendly and informative, location is excellent, just next to Zona Roza. has nice relaxing atmosphere, where you can kick back easily, but if you're looking for a party - this isn't the place. good times in general.

Disliked: there is a lack of lockers (less lockers then guests). the rooms don't get too much air, cause there's no outdoor window, but the fan makes up for it.

Liked: Maria, the owner is very friendly and helpful, as are all the staff. The hostel itself is just around the corner from Zona Rosa, very handy for nights out and good restaurants. The hostel has a relaxed atmosphere and a great kitchen with coffee on stand-by all day..Also the best showers in South America (really!!!).

Disliked: The front dorm room looks out to the main street and is quite noisy all night..And the dorm beds wouldnt be the softest..
