perfect location, good value for money, good dorms, but not enough safes/lockers
This is hands down, the best hostel I have ever stayed in. The staff were brilliant. Joanna has impecible English and is really helpful. Sam become a tour guide of sorts, he took myself and some others from the hostel to a local event with his friends. He did this on two occasions. The kitchen is very well stocked and coffee is always ready. The location is amazing. If your looking for a good steak, sams restaurant is the place to go. Thanks alot guys

My favorite hostel in Colombia! Such a cool vibe wicked vibe and so many chill out areas. Love the balcony looking over the square. We managed to arrange all our tours through the hostel which was great!

Great place in the main square of San Gil, really nice atmosphere and people. The best the swimming pool with the view.
Beautiful hostel located on the main town square, includes large, well-equipped kitchens, two beautiful balconies, fast internet and a huge Blu-ray collection. Staff is friendly and helpful. Only drawback is that hostel has several small hangout areas in different parts of the building instead of one big one, which reduces the communal vibe.
I was first trying to book at one of the other more popular hostels, but they were booked for the first night. I then made a reservation at Sam's VIP, just to have a place to stay - and I am very happy I did so! The place is clean, the staff is VERY friendly and helpful (especiall Joana (sp?)). It is located right on the plaza and has a balcony that you can overlook the pleasantries of the city square. You can book your tours or activities directly with them. Very clean, very worth the value!
Really really nice hostel located near central park, staff is really nice they make u feel very comfortable and help u with everything. The hostel also has a swimming. Really nice stay for a really good price.
The staff and the people here were really lovely and helpful. The hostel is also so comfortable and modern, lovely to have the comforts of home after so Lon traveling. Would have loved the showers to have hot water and the Internet to have worked everyday but San Gil in general was distracting enough to make up for it
Right on the main square which was great, but noisy! Good price, the room got hot though. 2 big well-equipped kitchens. Wouldn't recommend the food/homebrew at the restaurant.
A fantastic hostel based on the main square with comfy beds, beers in the fridge and a pool out the back. Brilliant. The beds are comfy and there are lockers for possessions. We really enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend. Only negative was the bathrooms could have been kept a little cleaner but wouldn't hesitate to go back. Also the steaks at the pub are goooood and so cheap.
