    we stayed here for two nights, before going to tayrona, leaving our bags here, and then staying a final night. we stayed in a twin dorm initially and then moved into a private room. pros: - gated property, feels very secure and the people who stay here seem trustworthy - good location, being a stop on the santa marta - palomino bus route with a cheap moto taxi down to the hostel - an incredible pool with a really cool climbing wall attached - good beach for surfing if you're into that - some fun activit

    Absolutely beautiful Hostel, feels more like a resort though and it might be hard to meet people because there's many groups and couples. Dorm rooms don't have mosquito nets, not even on the windows so you're quite exposed. Food is good and not too expensive.

    Overall the facilities were good, their pool is the best one we had during our travels. The hostel is lacking a bit of social atmosphere, pretty much every day is a chilled day and would be nice if there would be a bit more activities. The food is okay but would definitely recommend going for a dinner at other hostels at the beach. The drinks are quite overpriced, once again you can find better deals at other hostels at the beach.

    Very Good

    The atmosphere is pretty cool but I wanted to share couple of things the Hostel can definitely improve. The Bar cashiers seem to be grumpy at all times, they point you with the finger to move out of the line instead of just using words, it looks like you are bothering them. I was also very disappointed with the food options and decided to eat in the neighboring Hostels, the options and taste are much better than Costeno. They offered sushi and my first order didn’t meet my minimum expectations.

    For me as a solo Traveller it was just hard because on weekends this „hostel“ becomes the most favorite weekend getaway for groups of locals. Besides that, beautiful location, but old and dirty restrooms. Staff looks like they do you a favor by serving you.

    Not really set up for solo travellers, cool gaff but deffo a place for groups. Would say as the big dorm is basically outside (no walls) it doesn’t feel as big so no issue there

    TDLR: this place is a money making machine designed for westerners who want to feel like they’re on love island. If you’re feeling homesick and want to experience 0 Colombian culture, this is the place for you! Overpriced and without a kitchen, you’re forced to eat all your meals from the sub-par restaurants on site. Nothing is complimentary so get ready to pay for breathing. Basically, if you’re backpacking on a budget and like experiencing local culture, STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!!

    I don’t understand the hype. Yeah sure it’s pretty and you can swim in the sea which is lovely but that’s it. Was there for 3 nights and the party was super lame. Suuuper commercial nothing Colombian on the menu at all but the prices are quite cheap. But I mean even if you are relaxing it’s really nice on the beach but there’s other nicer relaxing places. Just go here for a day visit and stay at Rio hostel - best place ever. Staff really didn’t look like they were having a good time, only the bar and manager were really nice and vibey. Reception staff didn’t know anything and were very unfriendly. The security guard woke me up in the middle of the night shining his torch in my face asking what I was doing there. Sleeping in my bed? He then realised he got the wrong bunk and went and woke up 3 other people who were all in the correct beds. Super unfriendly. Bathrooms were really disgusting and stank of piss.
