Property Description

Welcome Home! Come stay in our magnificent converted Colombian Villa in El Rodadero, the safest neighbourhood of Santa Marta and only minutes walk to 3 of Santa Marta's best beaches. We are the perfect base between your adventures to Minca, Tayrona, or La Guajira.


Relax by the pool and meet other travellers in our beautiful mansion that was once owned by a cartel before being abandoned and later turned into the stunning Hostel it is today. With a Santa Marta's newest shopping center and best beach all within 3 minutes- walking, Calle 11 is the perfect base to explore the region outside the hustle and bustle of downtown. Leave your bags for free as you come and go exploring the region!

Beside being super clean and organised, our priority is our friendly service. Looking to do Ciudad Perdida, Minca, or Parque Tayrona? We got you covered and can book it all. Need info to get to the next destination, let us give you all best info to do it on your own with transport or a tour. Free luggage storage means you can have piece of mind when you want to head off for a couple of days. When you come back why not unwind and have massage with a glass of wine by our stunning pool in the afternoon. Or take advatage of our nightly social calender set up by our cute pool side bar where you can watch movies above the pool whilst sipping on our 2 for 1 happy hour cocktails. Once the party gets going, we have connections to Santa Marta's best bars and clubs and get you to the dance floor quicker :) When you comeback you know you will sleep well with air conditioning in all our dorms along with curtains, power sockets and mini lights.
The hostel is only a 3 minutes walk from the beach, 2-3 minutes walk to all the major supermarkets and only 10 minutes bus ride from Santa Marta historical centre. The airport is only 20 minutes away ($cop 20.000 fix price with taxi). The beach in El Rodadero is much nicer than the one in the center (where there is an industrial port). Within walking distance you will find supermarkets, banks, atm, restaurants, cinema, bars and souvenirs. View House Rules

    WOW. Beautiful hostel. You get soooo much for just $8 a night. The pool, the view, the beds with your own personal charger and lamp and privacy sheet, THE VIEW, they offer $20 massages, and they make great breakfasts that are really expensive but also really good.

    I had a pleasant stay in Calle 11. All the staff were kind and tried to make my stay enjoyable. I would’ve loved to stay even more and enjoy the pool! Also they try to maintain a social vibe at nights but it’s also quiet after 10pm

    The staff in Calle 11 are exceptionally friendly and welcoming. Our room was really spacious and clean and the pool is perfect to cool down in after a day trip to Tayrona Park or around Santa Marta. The hostel is about 20 minutes away from Santa Marta but a taxi costs only approx 12 mil COP. Staff are very helpful with tips and advice on tours etc. Staff had fluent English as well.

    Location is meh as you have to taxi it to town (5/10 mins) and the local beach is meh BUT made up for it by the staff, the hostel itself, the kitchen, pool, especially Simone making us feel super at home and getting everyone knowing each other in the evenings. Great base for tayrona (though if we did it again maybe we’d stay nearer the park and have more time there)

    This place has the potential to be really awesome, but it falls a little short. Everything feels old and rundown. There are lots of common spaces which is nice. No hot water for the showers and minimal water pressure. The private single room with shared bath was really tiny with only a really small window and the bathroom was shared with an entire 8 bed dorm. Luckily the AC was broken in my room and I got upgraded to the private double room with private bath which was a significant improvement

    Didn’t really love the place, I could see it being fun with a big group of friends but overall not my cup of tea

    Our private room did not look much like the photos. Everything was pretty old. Also people were very loud til late at night at the pool which was pretty annoying. However, staff was nice and helpful!

    Nice building and pool. No atmosphere though, almost more staff than guests at times which gave a weird vibe. It’s not as close to Santa Marta and busses to Minca and Tayrona as the hostel description suggests, one staff member told us that the information online is not accurate. On our last day there was a local party at the hostel which made it hard to use the kitchen for breakfast and use the pool because of young children playing, there was no communication about this
