A beautiful place to stay in Santa Marta. Multilevel, picturesque tile and marble building. Modern furnishings + an old building = unique. Shared dorm beds are cozy and semi-private with train-car curtains, individual fans and reading lights. Spacious kitchen. Inviting social areas. Great night activities! Good WIFI/computer area. Fantastic reception, especially from David and Melanie. Only complaints: rooftop pool closed for cleaning (5 days), occasionally out of toilet paper. Recommended!
This is a nice hostel to relax after something like the lost city hike. Staff are very helpful even though they are run off their feet at times.. (This is a popular hostel). A few things need attention though, the room lockers are too small and not well made. The luggage room is also too cluttered, small, lacks a proper labelling method and staff checking routine.. I could've walked out with anyones bag!
It`s a professionally run hostel with great facilities. It`s not one of the warm, cosy ones and the curtains around the beds add a sense of anonymity but on the other hand it`s great to have some private space with your own fan and socket.
This is more of a boutique hotel with dorm beds than a traditional hostel. Beds, staff, facilities, location, breakfast, pools, bathrooms are all excellent. Having stayed in over 100 hostels around the world, this is by far my favourite! Great for chilling out rather than partying.
I've never seen a better hostel. I really enjoyed my stay.
Wow! It looks like a hotel - so beautiful and clean and new! the pool and the view from there are great! excelent bar, great breakfast - but not included. Ar condicionate in bathrooms - great! Good shower, clean bathrooms. Cinema room? great! Very well located, nice staff, helped us a lot finding places to go and everything.
Best hostel ever, more like a luxury hotel. The staff is the best,, and they organize a lot of cutlural activities. The roof top is amazing, and they have 2 swimming pools! WHAOU!

I have traveled all around South America and this is definitely more like a hotel than hostel. Simply amazing!
The building with the facilities are great, but I think 120.000 COP is quite a lot for a hostel. The included breakfast was rather poor; you couldn´t get a second cup of coffee!!
Gorgeous building with excellent facilities that looks like a 5 star hotel. It is certainly not dirty but you would think for an amazing place that they would go to the effort of giving it a 5 star clean too!
It looks like a hotel, but it is a hostel. Beware that some of the rooms have a fan but no aircon. If you prefer aircon, check that the room you book has it. The rooftop with pool and bar is great.
Best hostel ever!! The common areas are amazing; jacuzzi, swimmingpool, bar, lounge, kitchen, WiFi and the staff is amazing!

This is probably one of my favourite hostels that I've ever stayed at. Nice, helpful staff, good wifi, great beds with fan, light and plug ins, great rooftop kitchen. There is tons of space and privacy, and it feels like a hotel with 2 pools and lounge chairs and a rooftop bar. I would definitely stay here again!!
Stayed only one night here and booked the lost city trek through reception. A great hostel. Great facilities, clean and helpful friendly staff. Would book again.
Excellent hostel with amazing facilities in an excellent location with friendly and helpful staff. The minor drawback was the ventilation in the dorms. The individual fans helped, but some more ventilation would be helpful. It was hot, but otherwise an excellent hostel for the bargain price.
You feel like in a hotel, very clean and a lot of space for relaxing. The recepcionists were not very informative.
Excellent! Even though we had an overbooking problem, the staff was really professional and found a solution. We came back a feel days later and it was really worthed!
