Very nice chilling area. The hostel itself is located away from most things so taking a taxi is necessary. We had a very nice stay.

Beautiful hostel with lots of chillout area's, bar, pool, kitchen and restaurant. The hostel is close to a huge mall with supermarket. Very friendly staff!

It is a nice place with all the luxury thing like pool and a nice place to watch movies but the basic things like showers and kitchen are not so good (almost no dishen in the kitchen, showers are really small and no place to hang clothes)

Everything was great except for some of the staff working at the reception. One guy and girl were pretty rude when one asked them questions.

Can't really fault this hostel. Only thing is that the bar and kitchen and day trips could be cheaper but with a supermarket, plenty of cheap eateries nearby and the public buses passing right by the hostel, its easy to keep to a budget.

Easily the best hostile I've ever stayed in. Helpful knowledgeable staff, good cheap food and drinks, clean, safe, and excellent activities that end at just the right time to ensure everyone gets some sleep if they need it. Highly recommended to all!

We really enjoyed staying at this hostel and came back repeatedly as we used santa marta as a base for various activities. The staff here are excellent and very helpful. The only problem was that the hostel is a little way out of town so you can just stroll in, you need to get a (cheap) taxi.

Amazing hostel! The staff are unbelievably friendly and helpful - they always remember your name. rooms are very clean! I would recommend dreamer hostel to travellers of all types of budget. The pool is a nice treat and there is a huge shopping centre only 5 minutes walk away to buy groceries for cooking. Dreamers is beautiful!

One of the best hostels I've stayed at. It's got everything you'd need with a swimming pool, pool table, really good food, loads of tours and a football court out the front. On top of this the staff are as good as you'll find, really friendly and always wiling to help out. I would definitely recommend The Dreamer to anyone visiting Santa Marta.

We had no expectations except the praise from fellow travelers. The dreamer lives up to it´s name. We felt at home and a bit pampered. The atmosphere was energetic and fun. We are travelling with our 11 year old daughter and even she felt comfortable. The staff was extraordinary, Their knowledge of many languages was appreciated. Diego, was exceptionally helpful and attentive. A Wonderful place to rest and explore northern Columbia. Diego also gives good back rubs!!´
