    The staff and owner were amazing. They were friendly, helpful and flexible. The room was comfortable and the location was perfect since buses passed from right around the corner. I really felt at home. Thank you Jorge!! :)

    Jorge is the best! He was super helpful with organising the Lost City trek last minute. He let me use the washing machine and soap for 10k pesos. And was generally just a nice and approachable guy! Eggs and bread for breakfast is good plus unlimited mangoes. It’s a basic hostel but cheap and great for using Santa Marta as a stop over for other places.

    I only stayed here for one night, but I had a positive experience. The owner (I believe Jorge is his name) was one of the most friendly and helpful people I met in Colombia, the customer service I received from him was phenomenal. This place really does feel like a family operation. The free breakfast was also a plus, and the common area was a good place to chill. Overall this place is a great value for your money. My only minor complaint was that my room was pretty hot the night I stayed there.

    The owner is soooo friendly! Very helpful with everything. It’s a pretty nice hostel too, there’s just nothing to do around it. Very chill, fine for relaxing. Alright breakfast. Super easy to catch a bus to Palomino or Parque Tayrona from there!

    Location was abit too far from the centre. But the buses are really cheap so it didn’t really bother me. The shower needs improvement. It’s literally just water coming out of the pipe. It needs shower head. The kitchen was okay except the stuffs feels like it’s dirty. The free breakfast was really good. The beds needs to be replaced or turn over. I like how they have mango tree so whenever you want mango. You’re free to grab some. The owner is really friendly!
