Fantastic place to use as a base when travelling around this region. Loads of comfortable places to relax after a hard couple of days in park tayrona or up in the mountains. safe luggage storage also which is very handy when you're off out and about on adventures. highly recommended for anyone needing to recharge and chill out :)

Good wifi. Pool and table tennis tables. But... It's almost like they force a party on you every night. Music doesn't go off until midnight if you're lucky. It was still blasting at 1245 and I spoke to the 'boss' who was at the bar. Quite far away from the centre.

Hi, We agree there was a bigger than normal party atmosphere in the hostel due to it being Easter and spring break, go figure. The 99% of the hostel was in the bar.

Very chill hoste, tons of places to relax. The hostel is big but it's a great place to meet people. The location isn't the greatest but there isn't much to see in Santa Marta town so it doesn't really matter. Most people chill at the hostel all day by the pool, in hammocks or in the movie room. The food is a little expensive and has small portions but there is a full kitchen and a near by grocery store.

Excellent hostel. Great atmosphere, decent little pool. Affordable bar, restaurant food as standard. The lounge area is a good place to retreat to during the day/night. Reception staff are knowledgable and very helpful when booking tours. Would recommend to all travellers in Santa Marta.

The staff was always so friendly and helpful! :) lots of room in the kitchen for cooking, the pool was really refreshing and the tv room was great for movies and relaxing. It can be a little hard to get to sleep early at night because the bar is a bit loud but with earplugs it might not be a problem. Overall it's a great hostel and worth staying at!

A very lively place to stay for a couple of nights and hang out by the pool during the day. Not much else going on around the hostel or Santa Marta really so expect to spend most your time just hanging out enjoying the random people who are traveling through. Kitchen was a good size and a grocery store just down the road if you like, otherwise they had plenty to offer for purchase there as well as a fully stocked bar. Good times.

Located a little off center, but that is exactly what makes Drop Bear so great ! Many reasons to not leave. The reception is super helpful with info for all spots close & far. and the bar & pool vibe is awesome! Dorms are cleaned everyday. I had the funnest time here. Lots of fun, crazy times and quiet escapes if you feel like.
