It's a beautiful house, neatly arranged with several chill areas. Everything is clean, the bathrooms are new and extremely clean as well. Also the staff is very friendly and nice. The only one who speaks English is the owner who wasn't there during my stay. But so I was forced to practice English and I didn't needed there help anyways. But there is always someone around willing to help you with anything. The hostal is located in the bustling El Centro. Don't believe the people that warn you. Are you here for the resl Columbia? then come here. Do you want to feel like home being surrounded by other foreigners and gringos go to Poblado and drink your Starbucks Coffee or eat your Pizza Hut Pizza. Of course I wouldn't go out on my own here in the middle of the night with all my valuables on me. But that's just common sense.
The most beautiful and well equipped hostel I have ever stayed at. Boutique Hotel finish at bargain prices. Amazing open common spaces finished with beautiful art and furniture. Excellent dorm rooms with comfy beds and secure individual lockers. New hostel and at the time we the entire place to ourselves.

The hostel is only a really short walk from the subway station "La Floresta" and the subway takes you everywhere in Medellin.
This is the hostel that every hostel should measure up to! I had an internship in Medellin and was initially planning to stay in Yellow House for a week, then extended my stay up to a month but... loved it so much that I have ended up staying for 2 months! Vincent (the owner) is the best because he really cares. He really wants everyone to have a good time there and is happy to accommodate for everyone's needs if you are just willing communicate to him that you don't like something (although it is difficult for me to imagine that there's something you wouldn't like;)). The dogs are absolutely adorable! I have even seen people who were really scared of dogs ending up liking them, so not staying there because of the dogs is no excuse!! The breakfast is the best ever (Vincent is French so obviously his food standards are really high!). The hostel is always clean and quiet and has great atmosphere. There is a garden outside where you can enjoy cheap Colombian beer and the amazing Medellin weather. There is also a nice communal area inside the house. The area where the hostel is located is also really good- a nice change from overrated el Poblado, with much more affordable prices.There is loads of places around to eat out .And I have NEVER felt unsafe there, even at night! Another bonus is that it is really close to metro (1 min away) and the metro in Medellin can take you anywhere. I cannot recommend this hostel enough! I absolutely loved it! Thanks for everything Vince!

The Hostel was a really nice place, its really small and you feel like home straith away !!!!The kitchen and bathrooms are really clean, the staff i met (pilar+manuel) are incredible friendly and helped me out whenever there was a question. Defintely would recommend the hostel, its a really nice and cool place !!
It was a really cool small place. Not a party hostal but we met enough people to socialise with (Just). First few days were very quiet. If you want a relaxing stay this is a good alternative to party place poblado - this would be perfect!

The rooms are huge, modern and nice. The only thing is that there is no wifi in de room.
I urge everyone to take advantage of this delightful hostel before it disappears in 2015 to be replaced by hotel/condos. It´s in a great neighborhood, easy walk to and from Metro, supermarket around the corner, situated between 2 great eateries (burgers and chicken wings). Individual rooms as well as dorms. The pool, coffee, tv, wifi, kitchen is available 24-7. Forget Bogota and have a super time in Medellin! When I first travelled in Europe after college..in the 1970´s i tried and didn´t appreciate hostels. Now at 66 I´m loving this!

I most of all liked the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The free fruits and coffee for breakfast were lovely. You can use lockers for your valuables. Saman Hostel is very close to Parque Lleras, where a lot of bars, restaurants and clubs are. You can go out and walk home again because it is so close.
Its very easy to find, small and very friendly place. I keep returning there as its for good money, staff is so nice and its clean and quiet. Its not a party place, which is good when you need some rest after long day travel or lots of parties. Can highly recommend it there.

Spent one night in a private room. Room and shared bathroom were clean, though I didn't appreciate a guest hanging up his underwear in the bathroom to dry (I'm glad you're comfortable and free with your unmentionables, but I don't want to see it, thanks!) The facilities looked great, including the pool and the kitchen. Staff was friendly enough. There didn't seem to be too many people there but again, I was just using this place to sleep for the night.
I enjoyed my stay very much because the staff was so friendly and spoke great English :)

It was in a very good location and close to everything that I needed to do in my first two weeks in Medellin. The hostel had a lot to offer both during the day and at night time and I felt it catered very well for all people staying there
Very friendly staff. Great location -lots of restaurants and bars, Good food. Not as touristy as el poblado!

I loved the cheerful, friendly atmosphere and tge fantastic design of the hostel. The artwork is fabulous and makes for a lovely environment.
We had a private room which was very nice and well kept. The art throughout the hostel was really cool. The location is very safe and close to some local night life areas. The more touristy area of town is about $5 USD taxi ride at night, but we actually preferred the nightlife areas that were closer to our hostel. The staff is really friendly and helpful :) We're very happy that we spent our Christmas here!

I met some nice people and learned a bunch about Medellin. I went to Estadio every morning for one hour and did laps in one of their nine pools. It was within walking distance and was free. Just show passport and have proper suit , cap and goggles. I shopped mainly at the mercado but Exito is real close by. Sophia and her two daughters are pleasant to be around. I played with the dog every day. Oh! Very nice Common area.
- stuff is really friendly and helpful - nice common areas - just a short walk to a shopping mall
