Fun place, great atmosphere with excellent staff, would thoroughly recommend although make sure you have a room with AC. Plenty of activities and a great onsite bar and restaurant means the only problem is watching your budget. Great for relaxing

Very good hostel! Super clean kitchen with all cooking equipment and clean bathrooms as well - staff clean round the clock. Didn't buy food as made the most of the rarity that is a nice kitchen! Pool is great... Would recommend. Only 15/20 min hike to bus station and the hostel is the most accessible to Minca and the coast.

Wifi, beds, staff and restaurant were great. The staff really made an effort and the restaurant was easy and nice food. The whole place looks amazing! Unfortunately the bathrooms aren't that great. The whole time we were there a door in the toilet was broken, and the showers don't have shower heads, but that doesn't even bother you when your hot from a long day.

This hostel would have to be up there with one of our favourites in our 6 months of travelling Sth America. The staff are AMAZING and learn your names and go out of their way to help you with anything and everything. The atmosphere is very social, but yet we could hide away in our a/c room if we wanted a quiet night too and have a good sleep. We used the Dreamer as our base to visit the surrounding areas (Minca, Tayrona, Palomino etc) and loved coming back to the Dreamer each time. Stay here!

We stayed here two nights, we went to Tayrona national park in between those nights though. The best thing was that we could leave our bags in the storage for that night! The staff were lovely and were always making a joke. The restaurant was great too very convenient and lovely food. The rooms with aircon were great with out they are a bit too hot. The bathrooms always seemed dirty, but that's re only complaint. Didn't use the kitchen the pool and hammocks were great to relax!

Seriously this place is awesome. It's s bit out of town (not much to do there anyway), but they do such a great job at creating a great vibe at the hostel. The staff is really helpful and friendly. The place is always clean. My only complaint would be that the showers are cold water only. But don't let this deter you because this place is a gem with a great vibe! Thanks guys!

Very nice welcoming at the reception and lovely private rooms with country names instead of numbers. But the China Bus Tour was disgusting. When the receptionist was telling us about it we thought that we would see some lovely places, including a viewing point. We were so wrong! It ended up being aprox. 50 kids from mostly England just getting totally WASTED, throwing up the drinks that they were drinking with no awareness of the poor people we were passing by who were begging for money.

If you're making a business out of where people stay for a night, at least get comfortable beds and make sure your bathrooms work properly daily.

Fantastic hostel. The staff are happy and informed, the cleaning staff work throughout the day (even though things still get a little iky in the showers), nice pool and activites every day. Great place to chill in the day and party at night. Highly recommend.

Staff was really friendly and helpful. Big fridge for the food and the kitchen has a good size. Lots of hammocks and chairs to chill out. The pool looks refreshing but I haven't tried it because I doubt it is regulary cleaned. water pressure in this city is not really strong. No need to have hot water because it is so hot outside. I was in a 4 bed dorm and the lockers were really spacious. I had fun at the bar and played pool. Even if the party bus was cancelled we went to a club a had fun.

Just stay here. Really social but being old and pretty past it I did not go on the party bus or to the local clubs yet I was never disturbed by the people who did. Staff are all super helpful and friendly. Massive super market opposite to buy disappointing cheese. Great food served in house. TV area with lots of good films. Pools great.

The Dreamer is a great place. Its whole set up, with the rooms around the pool, makes for a very social place and its easy to meet other travelers. The pool is nice and the staff is great! The location is somewhat out of the center but s short taxi ride will get you anywhere. But then you probably wont even want to leave. The rooms are a bit dark and the beds are a bit squeeky but if all you need is a bed, theyre perfect. Only issue: the showers dont have shower heads.
