The staff are lovely, and the wifi worked up until my last day - not sure what happened. The place is really clean, it's close to the supermarket, the beach and the buses to the centre. Good for the price although breakfast is not included and the four bed room I was in only had fans so it was pretty hot at night time. Worth it for a few days though.


We stayed here in February, the dorms had little fans at each bed but still it was very warm in the rooms, kitchen was adequate and there's a nice common area, close proximity to the beach and shops but a 30 minute expensive taxi ride/bus ride from Santa Marta.


Service is great. Food and cocktails are awesome!!!

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 :)).
