Hostel Mamallena, Cartagena, Colombia
9.1
17th Nov 2014

I really liked this hostel, the rooms were clean, A/c was on 24/7 the breakfast was pretty good and the tours were easy to book there. The location is also great, the only problem I had was I found one of the staff members to be quite unhelpful, and act like any request was asking too much. Aside from that I really enjoyed my stay here.

Hostel Masaya Santa Marta, Santa Marta, Colombia

16th Nov 2014

Great hostel! When I arrived there was an overbooking so the girl found me another bed in a smaller dorm and charged me the rate at which the room was booked - excellent customer service. The kitchen is clean and it is located in downtown Santa Marta. The rooftop bar and pool would be nice to enjoy on a hot day - it was raining when I was there :(

A great hostel, the staff are super helpful and knowledgable, the pool is clean, the TV room is great and the beds are comfy! A short walk to Exito if you want to make use of the kitchen, would definitely recommend it if you are looking for a bit of a chilled vibe in Santa Marta

A little bit of a walk out of town, but in a lovely setting with volcano views. Lovely hosts, although only limited english, free washing and clean rooms, I would recommend if you want something super chill. There isn't much in the way f a common room, so don't stay here if you ware hoping to meet people.

For sure one if the best hostels I've stayed at in South America. The hostel is super clean, showers are amazing, Mike is a great house, and the kitchen is well equipped. The matresses and pillows aren't the best but the positives for sure out weigh that. Excellent location, and great value for money!

Old mate on the desk at night couldn't speak a word of English, which made it very difficult when my flight was delayed and I was going to miss my airport shuttle, however after emailing Maria did a great job of ensuring the driver would be there to collect me on time.
