Luxury hostel at extreme budget prices ! Feb 10, 2013
We stayed for 3 nights at Sams Vip,, but I wish we could have stayed for a month. It is probably the best hostel I have ever stayed in, and I have stayed in hundreds of them on 5 continents.
To make this short,here are some of the highlights;
- Outdoor patio overlooking the mountains with swimming pool, sunchairs AND a Sauna !
- 2 computers for everyone to use with fast internet
- big flat screen TV with BLUERAY player and lots of movies
- Large veranda with tables and chairs overlooking the main plaza of San Gil(beautiful)
- offers of getting a cheap massage from the associated massage therapist.
- highly modern kitchen with free coffee all day
- Helpful and professional 24 hour receptionists
- comfortable and big beds with lots of lockers for everyone.
- beautiful bathrooms with hot showers
- cleaning lady that thouroughly cleaned the rooms daily
- one of the cheapest prices we found in Colombia at 16000 peso for a bed. A luxury hostel with budget prices...go figure !
AND you get free beer at the associated steakhouse - Sams gastropub - which I will make a separate review for. The cheapest(12000) and BEST filet steak I have had for years. And it is the right cut of meat...not like most the other places that give you some chewy excuse of a beef.
My prediction is that this will be the Lonely planet "our pick" for the next edition of the Colombia guide...and then the prices will go up(as they always do) , and it will get seriously crowded....
So if you are going to San Gil, son`t have any doubts about where to stay(and where to eat)
