This is a great little family run hostel, such good value for money! It is very basic but has everything you need, each bed has a locker. The bottom bunks have individual fans, it does get a little hot. There is a free breakfast included. I would defiantly recommend this place

The breakfast is to less and prepaid without any passion. The location is not the prettiest one and there is no space to hang around comfortable. But all at all it is ok to stay there for some days. It is one of the cheapest accommodations in Santa marta. So it is a ok price value balance.

A really peaceful, friendly hostel to stay at in an ideal area of Santa Marta. The staff speak limited english, but are totally dedicated to making your stay as enjoyable as possible. The free brekky is a bonus too, and I'd certainly stay there again if I came back to the Caribbean coast.

Just an ok hostel in the center of Santa Marta, close to the beach. Staff was not super helpful/sociable and doesn't speak English. Room got extremely hot at night so be prepared to wake up sweating like crazy.

the location is good. the staffs are kind. the room is okay the hostel is quite old looking as well as the facilities but they are still okay.. i met great people in the hostel... they usually lock the hostel at night for security purposes but you can always ring the bell if youre planning to go back late...

Even though there was no AC, the fans did just fine in January (average temp 30ºC). Very nice atmosphere and the staff was very helpful. The showers were not the best ever, but were okay as well.

Would be nice if they had soap in the bathrooms. Lots of Mosquitos in the room- woke up with 32 bites. No air con makes a rough night.
