if u want to rest and drink relax come here... however, the bar is expensive if u compare prices in Santa Marta City and the quality of the beach
It was a nice stay here! Right on the beach. We were there on a Friday night and it wasn't so much of a party. Only complaint would be the music the guy at the bar was playing was a bit rubbish as the night progressed. We would request different genres of songs and he would cut them off halfway and put back on the 50s and 60s music. It was hard to socialize when everyone was falling asleep. My travel partner said the girls bathroom smelled bad. But the males was fine. Overall I recommend!!
The staff is incredible!! Very knowledgeable, helpful, and super friendly. Tons of animals around and you literally roll out of bed onto a mostly empty beach. The downsides are that the dorm rooms absolutely need more fans (I had a lot of trouble sleeping) and the bathrooms reek.
Hostel is very close to a beach that is not very popularly used (becuase it is hard to get to) so you have a fantastic beach almost sparsely used. The romos dont have AC. its gets hot and there are mosquitoes that are hungry. If you really love a beach then this is a great hostel else there are other hostels that are better value for money. If they added a room with AC this hostel would be great!!!!
