    I absolutely love this hostel. I stayed here 5 times over the course of my three months in Colombia. It’s chill and lovely and the pool is perfect. Not a party place, but it’s a great place to chill out for a few days, lay low and refresh. The staff is lovely and the food is good too. I’ll be back!

    Very fun spot, with a great pool and accommodations in old shipping containers. Free salsa lessons and daily events made the spot easy to make friends

    Great place to stay, a little outside the city, seems safe but could probably be a little sketchy at night. Other than that it's great. Value is amazing, staff is kind and helpful, would definitely recommend

    Honestly I can’t fault this hostel, good vibe, rooms very clean, working AC, pool facilities, free pool table and plenty of places to relax. I just don’t think Santa Marta the city has much to offer. But the hostel spot on

    Pros: the staff are super friendly and helpful! Cons: although it is 15 min walk to the centre at night i do not recommend walking it! Take a taxi! It’s quite far from everything by foot but the transportation services are easy to use, just ask the driver. There was A LOT of mosquitos everywhere, bring your anti mosquito lol. The AC only work from certain time to certain time (7pm to 9am).

    If you want to spend your time being eaten by mosquitoes and having buss loads of kids kicking balls and jumping/splashing/screaming around you this is the place for it! Works more like a communal pool than a hostel unfortunately.

    Staff is rather unpleasant and are not really there to help or guide you (in fact, one of them made a sexist joke during check in) - we were just shown our room and nothing else, you’re kind of on your own when it comes to figurate out the place and it’s (non existent) amenities. When you go to one of the bathrooms, you will be eating by mosquitos the whole time, quite literally. The place does not have a kitchen, so you’re kinda forced to eat out or buy their food. As per the ambiance, during 2 nights of o
