Staff are very helpful and friendly they make every effort to make you feel at home. This is a great stop before going Tayrona as you can also leave your backpacks here in a locker for 5 peso. Santa Marta itself is a bit boring so wouldn't stay fit long but the hostel is great would recommend staying in the private room with AC as it gets super hot I did stay in a dorm... 100% recommended


I had such a wonderful time being at this hostel. I felt like I was visiting with family, it was so comfortable from Ivonne who made me a remedy for my sore throat ;), Sonia , Isis and their present p/timer Tom, all great . It's very close to any mode of transport the ocean and shops. I would definitely stay here again :)).


Staff is great, short walk from the beach. Inside is very cozy.


It was a good experience there. The owners are very kind. I will go back there someday.

Excellent staff - warm, caring, helpful. Dorm rooms were okay - each bed had it's own fan. I just wish they would check the condition of the bathrooms, at least once a day. It seemed like ours didn't get cleaned. We were always out of paper- we used our own. Floor needed sweeping and mopping. The downstairs common area was well maintained though.


Nice, chilled out and friendly place to base yourselves to explore the area or just to relax in. Supermarket and buses to Santa Marta just round the corner. Would definitely recommend. Only one negative - please put some glass windows in the room with air con. It was cool enough but so much energy is wasted as hot air blew through the windows.
