I had such a lovely time here! Lisandro was really nice, and so was everybody else. This is a small hostel/B&B, in a house just outside the city center. If you like a quiet place with a friendly and homey atmosphere, this is the place for you. I loved the yummy breakfast (freshly squeezed juice +yogurt w/ cereal +nice portion of well cooked scrambled eggs on toast +cofee/tea); the really good WiFi and the location (close to all the buses and a big supermarket). Only con: no A/C. Recommended!
The owner is a wonderful, generous and friendly person. The hostel is nice and small but you still get to meet other travellers. A warm welcome on your arrival, clean towels and a clean bed in a 4 bed dorm or private room are waiting for you. It only takes a few minutes to walk to the supermarket, esplanade or historical centre and also the local bus stop is very close. The breakfast is delicious and filling. Follow the address on hostelworld as the one on google maps is wrong!
Lisandro is a perfect host, he made us feel like HOME. We booked 2 nights and stayed 4 nights instead. The breakfast was amazingly healthy and fresh. If you need any suggestions about where to go what to do etc... Lisandro will guide you perfectly. He showed us the way to get to Bahia Concha beach which is so nice. Thanks Agu for coming with us as well!
Pros: Staff was really friendly and welcoming. The group of travellers were fun and we all hung out together in the den. Hostel had a very fun convivial and family type vibe. Lisandro was very helpful in giving us information about where to go and what to do in the city! Cons: Hostel a little difficult to find. Located outside the city centre (but only a 5 min cab ride away). Bathroom could have been cleaner.
This is a great little hostel that made for an excellent jumping off point to visit Parque Tayrona. The staff is what makes this place. Lisandro is an amazing host - he helped us figure out travel logistics , held onto our luggage when we went to Tayrona for two nights, and called a taxi for us when we needed to head back to the airport. And he makes a lovely breakfast! My only criticism is that there's no A/C, only fans, which can be a bit rough when you're not used to the climate here.
Lisandro, the owner, is a very nice, friendly and helpful person, looked after us perfectly. Highly recommended hostel to stay in Santa Marta!
Worst directions ever. Took a long time to find. Not helped by google maps having completely the wrong location. In the middle of a large residential estate a good walk from everything. Atmosphere is more like staying in someone's home. Owners are friendly enough. Kitchen is adequate but not super clean. Shower has no head so it's like being pissed on. Don't go in there if you don't like ants.
