    I have stayed in countless hostels all over the world, and this was one of my favorites. We rented a private room which was extremely affordable and a great option to leave your belongings secured for day / overnight trips to Minca and Tayrona, etc. The staff were awesome and we felt like we could just hang out at the hostel for a day and would be pleased with our stay. 10/10 in my book!

    This place is incredible, so clean, very cool vibe, wonderful food and drinks at the restaurant and the pool on the grounds is beautiful. The dorms have their own charging units, lockers, and curtains for privacy and great AC. Wish I had stayed here longer! You can walk from here to downtown Santa Marta easily

    Tres bel endroit ! Nous avons adore notre sejour a cet endroit et y sommes retournees a notre retour du parc Tayrona. Le seul bemol est le bracelet que nous devons porter au poignet afin de faire un controle de securite dans lhostel... disons simplement qu il nous identifie comme touristes dans la ville assez rapidement !

    The food was great, the staff were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again. During my stay there were language exchange nights with locals and karaoke nights. It is a 20 min walk to the marina district from the hostel, but there are plenty of taxis available, or bike hire. The only negative: I was not able to get a response from the hostel using their email address (bounced) or web interface. My Spanish is not good so a phone call was not an option.

    Pros: rooms were equipped with ac and curtains. They were super clean and the beds super comfy with a locker attached. Cons: the whole hostel has a bit of a “cheerleader effect” looks super, but not toooo well kept. Bathrooms and kitchen were rather dirty and staff was not too attentive. Overall rather recommended for young, instagram- like people, however a good accommodation for one or two nights :)

    El hostal es lindo, la ubicación está bien aunque es alejado del centro histórico. No nos gustó la atención de la persona que nos recibió, no había interés en responder cuando hacíamos alguna pregunta y en atendernos. Parecía que no sabía mucho de atención al cliente. Hicimos la reservación con desayuno y al preguntarle nos indicó que no había desayuno incluído en las reservas y nosotros reservamos con ellos porque tenía la opción incluída. La verdad no volveremos a este lugar. Paupérrimo.
