About Sams VIP Hostel San Gil

Sams Hostel, located right beside the city park. free Colombian Coffee.... To think you are in a hostel is an understatement. private rooms that cost 60,000pesos a night, however the dorm rooms cost a mere 22,000pesos. The bulding is a 3 story mansion, very modern, has free wifi, 2 kitchens with all modern appliances, multiple bathrooms and showers, and the bulding is kept very clean by the friendly staff. Interested in T.V with a collection of more than 100 boriginal blue rays, , in the common room there is a LCD 42" tele and at the guest desk there is a fridge for those adult beverages you need after a day of trekking with the cheapest Ale, lager or porter in town and maybe in Colombia. End the night over at Sams Pub across the street, with the most delicious Steak and hamburgers
