This hostel was so welcoming! I used it as a base to do lots of other two day treks leaving my belongings here locked up! The staff are so friendly and the pool is so clean and the atmosphere is chilled and yet party like at the same time! It is a little out of town but I liked that and the bus is every two mins and costs 1400COP! Great hostel!!
We had fantastic stay. It's a taxi ride to the city centre and decent restaurants but it's near a big supermarket and a great spot to get to everywhere else. The staff were extremely informative, keen to help and they also serve meals. Oh and the pool tops it all off. A top shelf hostel!
The Drop Bear is in an ex cartel mansion - it is huge! A very cool hostel with huge pool, outside cinema, massive TV room, big communal kitchen and also an on side restaurant! The staff are very helpful and can organise tours for you or give you advise on what to do in the local area or look after your bags while you explore the coast. It was pretty quiet when we were there, but i imagine if there were more people it would be a great place for a party and to meet other travellers.
Beautiful house with excellent facilities. Well equipped kitchen. Comfortable movie room with more movies than you know what to do with. Pool is beautiful and a lifesaver for the santa marta scorch. They have an amazing giant swinging hammock. Pool table and pingpong as well as lots of pub games giant jenga, flip cup. The hostel has some crazy nights, but you can find your quiet area easy enough as the hostel is huge. The collectivos from Tayrona Palomino and Minca are a 2 min walk from the door
The Drop Bear is one of the nicest hostels I've stayed in. The pool was very clean, which is always nice. There are plenty of hammocks and places to lounge and meet other travelers. The staff was friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend staying here.
Great hostel, great staff, the owner is a top bloke with plenty of helpful tips.. Was not overly busy. Great hostel to relax by the pool or in a hammock..
