    We can not recommend this hostel enough. All the food we tried was delicious. We ordered the breakfast burrito, fajitas, arepas, empanadas, and veggie burger in our one-day stay and had to come back later in our trip for more! We unfortunately came down with food poisoning from Tayrona park, but the staff members and owners at Casa Del Ritmo took care of us when we were sick, fed us when we were hungry, and were all around the best hosts!

    Amazing hostel, amazing food (pretty inexpensive for the amount and quality that you’re getting). Staff was super friendly and made me feel welcome. Only thing that was missing was the atmosphere but I think it’s because people haven’t really heard of this hostel yet. Prices for a night are super affordable and the dorms were nice too: 6 bed dorm had a huge fan on the ceiling and every bed had its own little fan (which was pretty loud). Cold water in the shower which was obvious for Colombia

    Our stay was at Casa del Ritmo was great! We stayed in an en suite double room. The rooms were spacious and each room has a different theme. There are fans in the room but can be very hot so we had to leave the door open throughout the day. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The food here is THE BEST. Our favourite was the lentil burger. The location was okay a few minutes walk from the beach but bare in mind it isnt in main part of Santa Marta. We defo would stay here again thankyou!!

    It was a nice hostel, only stayed there for a quick stop over and liked the facilities, although the visitor kitchen could be better equipped. There was not much of a social vibe but it was quite in the night.

    The food was really great and prices pretty good for fancy stuff like Tofu in Colombia. The volunteers were really friendly and made me enjoy my stay a lot. They always had great music.

    This is a great hostel if you want to be near the airport and have some fantastic food. You must eat at the hostel restaurant the food is off amazing quality. The staff can book you a taxi for 20,000 to the airport and from booking the cab to checkin took 20mins. The wifi didn’t work in the rooms though and the water was not warm in the showers. There is a fan for every bed and locker storage which was handy.

    Overall this hostel was a disappointment. Nothing seemed to work ... the Wifi worked partially in the common areas, the television did not work, the hot tub was out of commission, and only “vegetarian” meals could be prepared in the kitchen. Aside from this, the hostel lacked atmosphere. We asked for a discount considering the inconvenience and were turned down. Would recommend other hostels in the area.
