    This is my second time staying at The Dreamer after circling around South America this past year. I chose to come back to Colombia right before lockdown started globally and am very glad to be in Colombia vs many other neighboring countries that were not taking the virus as seriously. Although it is much different cursmutacnes this time, the friendless of the Dreamer staff and of the Colombian people to welcome me in, made me feel at home. For that, I am much appreciative

    Dreamer Palomino is an amazing hostel - right on the beach, awesome pool and extremely clean facilities. Having backpacked for a few months now I have to say it is one of the cleanest hostels I have been to. The staff are helpful, attentive and fun. Will definitely be back on my text trip to Colombia!

    Perfect location for exploring all the best of Santa Marta's surroundings. Friendly staff and delicious food! This property handled this crisis like true champions. Unbelievable response to help get me and my friends back home safe. I will be returning here after this is all over, could not imagine a more ideal destination to be. PS Thank you Jenny !!

    Location is perfect, just some meters away from the beach, rooms were okay as well as staff. The big problem is security, there are not doors to get into the hostel, anyone can get inside to the hostel and to the rooms. Some friends got their money stolen from the luggage room when we went Tubing. Please be more careful with security and you'll do great.

    I was unable to stay at the Dreamer Hostel because of Covid-19 and needing to leave immediately to my native country. I emailed the hostel ahead of time to ask for a refund and they said they are unable to give me a refund even in these circumstances. I am very disappointed as this was completely out of my control. Another hostel I booked at managed to give me a full refund because of these special circumstances.
