Loved San Gil, loved this hostel. Very chilled place. Girls on reception are awesome - very informative and friendly. Plays good music. Kitchen was great if you're self catering. Spotlessly clean. Can arrange all activities for you. Highly recommended.


THANK YOU SO MUCH JOHANA, ADRIANA AND DANIELA FOR MAKING MY STAY SO ENJOYABLE! Chatting with these girls really brightened my day! Give them promotions Sam! Other then this, the hostel is a quiet, clean place, that helps you book activties and bus tickets!


Nice hostel, planned to stay two nights but ended up staying four.


Hostel was great, rooms are big and clean. Lockers are big enough to fit all your stuff and leave it there safely while you are out doing your things. Booking activities is pretty simple as the hotel staff is very nice and helpful, the know all the right places to go. Common areas are very nice and comfy, the rooftop pool is awesome!!! Will come back again soon!!!


This hostel is definitely the best hostel I ever been, two well equipment kitchens, amazing terrace, swimming pool and sauna, the hostel is very clean and the receptionist help organizing all the activities, the paragliding at the canyon was outstanding, all room had big lockers for the backpacks so don't have to worry for security and also lockers at reception if you want to leave them for a short period, for food we recommend you steak at the steakhouse and breakfast at the food market

Really enjoyed our stay in San Gil and in Sam's VIP Hostel. Very friendly girl at reception with perfect english. Large rooms and nice common areas and facilities. We did the the white water rafting and the paragliding through the hostel - both of which I would recommend. The white water rafting was one of the main highlights of our entire South America trip. Would recommend Sam's bar, Gringo Mike's and Donde Bettys (for breakfast) for places to eat.
