    Highly recommended. The stuff is very friendly, especially Marie (receptionist). I think she should be employee of the month, even though for the last 3 months it has been the cleaning woman and she deserves it as well! :)

    Do not give the credit card information, I was doble charge, I show up my bill and the owner refuse to give me credit. No den la información de su tarjeta de crédito, a mi cobraron el doble, les mostré el recibo de mi tarjeta de credito y aún así, el dueño, no quiso darme el credito.

    Excellent hostel to stay. Very close to the place where you get the bus to go to tayrona. Super friendly staff. Carlos helped explain EVERYTHING about tayrona at 10 pm when I got to the hostel so that was really nice. also mafe was super nice and even remembered my name when I got back from tayrona. She gave me some good recommendations for my final night in Santa Marta. A/C is nice too in the rooms! Would stay here again!

    I really enjoyed cacao hostel. Comfortable beds, and it’s walking distance to the bus stop to go to places like Minca, Tayrona, Palomino, etc. It’s also walking distance to the area where you go to party, and the center of town. Busses run also two blocks away. Would stay again

    I only stayed for a few hours and the installations and the staff were great. Even than the location is closed to the historic center the zone is not secure so I wasn’t comfortable walking at night near to the hostel.

    Location not good if you want to walk around the city but it is perfect if you want to go to tours because its close to the bus station too all the places around. The breakfast is SUPER and the kitchen is too. Also If you sleep in top bed don't expect much AC..

    Stayed here for one night, overall a good stay and nice location. The laundry service was good and a bit more affordable than other places in SM. Our hostel room was adjacent to the bar so I needed to use ear plugs. Could do with some more toilet and showers.

    Really lovely hostel. Nice atmosphere and facilities. However, do be careful with their tab system. I paid cash for a few items and they put the same items on my tab. Upon noticing they said I have no proof I paid in cash so I have to pay regardless - a shame considering the hostel was otherwise quite pleasant.
