    I had an absolutely great experience staying here last week. I've traveled to dozens of hostels over this past yr and this ranks up there with the best of them. A truly beautiful location. Peaceful gardens, chill pool & good music vibes. Most surprising was the FOOD. Some of the best pizza & pasta dishes I've had since my trip to Italy. It was just what I needed to relax before the next leg of my trip.

    Love my stay at Dreamer Palomino! Great environment for chilling out or being social if you want to. Staff was all super helpful and also just fun to talk to and hang out with. Free coffee throughout the day and activities at night. Right next to tubing, the beach, bars and restaurants.

    Something just seemed off here. Not sure if it was when we were traveling (high season), but the vibe was just off... more of a resort feel than a hostel, so it was an amazing property, but being more resort like everyone kinda kept to themselves.

    Very Good

    Definitely a great hostel to come to for a party. The common facilities were reminiscent of a resort and we were really happy with them. The directions to the place from the Main Street are absolutely atrocious and there is no excuse for that. The system for ordering food and drink was convoluted and could use updating to save standing around waiting for others to check in while trying to get a beer.

    Very Good

    Not as good as the dreamer in Santa Marta, it’s less well run. No information on the activities they had and therefore we missed them. The pool and room was really nice and breakfast was good. Palomino itself was pretty disappointing as there isn’t much to do except for tubing and the beach isn’t great.

    We stayed in the dreamer is Santa Marta and had an amazing time so we decided to stay in the Palomino location. This one had different atmosphere compared to the Santa Marta as well as inconsistent menus where it felt like if we saw a time for food or drinks for happy hours we got different answers from different staff and were denied it. The staff weren’t as great as the Santa Marta. Food was just as great though, and the room was beautiful.
