Great hostel, further away from center so many travellers get to know each other ad do activities like the trek or day trips together. Party hostel, loud, awesome

I want to like this hostel, but couldn't recommend. At checkout we were charged for two nights instead of one, but they were rushing us to get our bus so we didn't spot it until later. We've been emailing for a refund which has yet to happen. At check in they couldnt locate our key, and the previous occupant still had it and came into our private room well after it was ours. It has a great pool and bar. The staff are lovely, but it seems a bit disorganised. Not a great sleep

Unfortunately the room was uncomfortably hot with no air conditioning, so we didn't sleep. Other travellers in the dorm left the door open to help bring air in, but it brought in mosquitoes and a cat, which urinated on someones case. The pool area, bar and hammocks are great, and the locationis great for Tayrona park, but too far from santa marta in my opinion. The staff are friendly. At checkout theytried to charge us for two beers which we didn't have, but we got them removed

I wish I could give a higher rating than 10. This place has literally everything you could ever want In a hostel, the staff are amazing! Rooms are beautiful, social atmosphere but still quiet in the rooms, I really can't fault a single thing about this place. The hostel is such a cool place it actually attracts good people so everyone there is so friendly. you can do all your tours from here, staff always at hand ready to help, especially Diego, hes the man. Great breakfast aswell Cheers Andrew

This hostel is a great place to chill by the pool, have some drinks and eat good food. It's a bit out of town but close to a super market if you want to cook.

The Dreamer is one of the more popular places to stay in Santa Marta and it's easy to see why. Great courtyard, pool and bar, and the food was quite good. The second floor has a big/new kitchen and livingroom area - also a couple of computers. Good atmosphere without being overly loud. The location is good as far as getting out of Santa Marta to Tayrona, Palomino, Minca, etc, but there's not much else around there besides a giant mall, and the Quinta Agostino.

Loved it here. Everyone was so friendly and had great amenities. Example -They let you have as many towels as you wanted which was helpful for the beach.

I really enjoyed staying at Dreamer Hostel in Santa Marta, Colombia. Hostel staff are very nice, Diego is an amazing host! Also, the atmosphere is positive and fun, the facilities are great, as well as rooms, which are comfortable and clean. The hostel is a little far away from the main town, however I highly recomend and think it is worth staying at this hostel in Santa Marta!

My boyfriend and I stayed there for a total of 3 (non-consecutive) nights during our trip - and the hostel stored our luggage in between trips. The staff was great (all spoke English, some better than others), and incredibly helpful. The hostel provides shuttle services to nearby attractions (Tayrona, Minca, etc.) for a reasonable price (competitive with taxis, but slightly more expensive than the public buses). Food was good - breakfast was great, and dinners were solid, but not fantastic.

The Dreamer is a Club Med quality resort at dirt cheap price…enough said. I’m planning to come back to Santa Marta and the Dreamer will be my home :- )

I absolutely loved this hostel. The staff, the atmosphere, the pool, the bar and the lounge area. Although not in the centre of town it's in a perfect location for heading to Taganga, Tayrona, The Lost City or Minca. Which, let's be honest, is the main reason you visit Santa Marta. The staff can organise transport for you to these places but there just as happy to tell you how to get there yourself. The restaurant sells decent food but there's a kitchen and a giant supermarket near by. Stay here

Wow. What a place to be. Interested in chilling out by the pool and relaxing for a few days ? Come to Dreamers. Interested in partying and meeting new people ? Come to Dreamers. Families, mid 20's, mid 30's have all come through here and everyone has seemed to love it. The food at the restaurant is delicious and fairly priced, pool is beautiful, staff helpful and kind and beers cold. Highly recommend
