My stay at the dreamer felt like staying two days in paradise. The hostel looks absolutely beautiful! The pictures on Hostelworld were not exaggerated at all! The Italian food they served was also amazing! I think 50.000 pesos is cheap for a night in this place. I absolutely recommend the place if you just want to relax for two or three days. Points of improvement: the wifi (!), they lock the toilets outside, so you have to ask for the key every time, one socket for every bed would be nice!

Nice Hostel with private access to a really beautiful, nice beach. Atmosphere is good and the pool also is a really good pace to hang out. Only the staff is not really interested in delivering a good service, we didn`t have electricity in our room about 70% of our stay - which means that the fans didn`t work.

Dear traveller, Thanks for your feedbackand we are glad you enjoyed our facilities and the atmosphere. Unfortunately, there was a regional power shortage in the area while changing the power lines, not being able to have electricity in the whole town. We hope you keep enjoying the rest of your trip and enjoying Colombia. Our best, The Dreamer On The Beach

Stayed here in a private room. nice location beside a beach but your not meant to swim in it. in both rooms we stayed in , there was piles of mosquitoes - mosquito nets for the bed would be helpful. pool looked dirty and was closed for cleaning whilst there for half day. staff are friendly but relaxed. Too many dogs & cats around the eating area & staff do nothing to get rid of them. be prepared for cats jumping on tables or rubbing against your legs or to find a dogs head there whilst eating.

Fantastic place. The staff was more than helpful and made my stay even better. The Hostel has some very good facities and it's an ideal place to meet new people. Had a great time.

Excellent!!!

the place is beautiful and relaxing and clean. The only downfall was the 5-6 dogs and 3 cats that hang around the restaurant area at meal times. They beg for food, fight under your feat and the cats try to eat off your plate while you eat and then jump on the table when your done. Not that nice. Like I said though everything else about this place was awesome - the facilities were among the best we've seen in Colombia!

I think they could be more helpful and detailed on what activities could be done or are recommended around the area. They offer activities/services that do not take place. Otherwise it is a great place.

Pool is very dirty. Staff are rude and unhelpful. Rooms are disgustingly hot with very small fans and no aircon. Stray dogs and cats are constantly in the main restaurant area and begging for your food, which makes your experience very unconfortable. Also staff make no action to clear them away. Mosquitos are everywhere, obviously not the hostels fault but would be nice to create an area or room where you can escape. Overall a pretty uncomfortable stay,.

The facilities, location and atmosphere were great. Palomino is an excellent town to visit to relax and enjoy nature. However, the staff was terrible. Very unfriendly, not helpful at all and various people during my stay had problems with their bills.
