The Pelican Larry Hostel, Cali, Colombia

Average stay. The good points: the staff were excellent. Faultless. The bad points: the kitchen was filthy. Overall a bit of of clique happening in this hostel were the long stayers dominate but over all it was a functional if slightly drab stay.

Drop Bear Hostel, Santa Marta, Colombia

Average. The private rooms were like prison cells however it has very good general areas for hanging around in. No towels though for the private rooms - I was surprised at that. The staff are phenomenally multilingual but a bit sullen. Overall not a bad option but I wouldn't get too excited about it.

Hi, We appreciate your feedback, thanks. Sorry if you felt the room was too small, it is a basic hostel private room for 1 person and for $20 a night we believe it's good value in Santa Marta for Backpackers. We do actually provide towels free of charge from the reception for clients that require them. With regards to the staff being sullen we are bit confused, we all love our jobs and helping our clients enjoy their stay :) We'd hope you come back one day in high season and perhaps stay in one of our large double rooms or dorms. Take care and travel safely. Gabe
