No negatives for the dreamer. Got recommended it by 4 different people along our travels and then stayed there and everything was amazing, the staff are super friendly and funny. Will be recommending the dreamer to anyone going to santa Marta.
We found that the man working at reception named Bruno was really lovely and helpful, he was able to book a your for us last minute and settle a billing dispute. Bruno was so helpful that in one day of working all day he lost his voice in an attempt to please everyone. Aside from that the hostel was pretty good, the location is a bit out of the way but there are lots of buses to catch.
We were not given a room key or a locker with a lock on it but others were. Only the owner spoke English so we had to wait until she was around to ask any questions. The hostel was in a good location, right in the middle of everything but this was also a problem as there was a party going on in the streets every night until 3 am
