Liked: The hostel is amazingly clean and has so many common areas, such as the front room and terrace, rooftop terrace with small pool and steam room, lounging areas and hammocks, it's great for chatting easily with other travellers. The location is great. 5 minutes from the Metro. The staff can organise tours for you and always ensure you are happy and have something to do. Johana was particularly helpful as she organised a tour for us at the last minute after our rafting tour fell through due to high water levels. She also phoned ahead to the tour organiser to let him know that I was nervous about the caving aspect of our trip which was really going above and beyond in customer service! I have zero complaints about Sam's VIP hostel - anyone in San Gil should stay here!

Disliked: Nada.

Liked: SAM's is my favorite hostel of all time. That might sound like a bit of hyperbole, but this is the best hostel I've ever stayed at during the 2 months of my Colombian adventure so far. I stayed there for 11 days. The hostel is perfect. There is a roof top pool, a poker table, a large TV and tons of Blue-Ray disks for an impromptu movie night, a balcony that overlooks the main square, located about 2-min walk to the best restaurants and bars in town (Elementales, Gringo Mikes, 7 Tigres Pizza, SAM's Gastro-pub), 2-min walk from a huge fresh produce market, 2-min walk to a wonderful shopping mall; so the location is absolutely perfect. The staff of Johanna, Adrianna, Carlos and the other folks are so friendly and knowledgeable...Johanna in particular is amazing...you will love her. They will organize the numerous activities in the San Gil area, book your ongoing bus tickets and hostel bookings, and pretty much anything else you might need. The rooms are cozy and the beds are comfortable. There are lots of cool spaces to chill in and they will organize a masseuse to come to hostel.

Disliked: Absolutely nothing.

Liked: NICE hostel. Two kitchens, super location, pool. I don't know how to improve on this place. Carnivores do not overlook the restaurant across the park, it's that good.

Disliked: My pet peeve in life is music going on all day in a hostel. Great if you are partying, invasive and irritating if you are trying to read or concentrate. But everything else was so fantastic I could overlook it.....almost.
