    Dreamer was an excellent hostel and such a good base in Santa Marta, as the city is notoriously grotty. The staff are super friendly and remembered my name on both visits. The food is good and the facilities great. I enjoyed both stays but the hostel is small which is good to talk to people but also means the atmosphere is dictated by the people. I wouldn't say it's party hostel but is generally a very social one. Really close to a supermarket and ATM

    Great place to start your journey up the north shore. Has a nice bar for meeting people and everyone is very open. Santa Marta isn’t a great town anyway so it’s not a big deal that it isn’t in the city. I loved the staff and people here.

    Great stay at Dreamer. It’s a bit out of the way, so I didn’t get to see any of downtown Santa Marta, but it was close(r) to Tayrona and overall a very well-run hostel. My private room was very comfortable, very clean, and the courtyard was constantly abuzz with activity from people just hanging out napping and reading in one of the many hammocks to more lively night time stuff. Also the on-site food was surprisingly good, and the desk staff very helpful.

    Pool was nice, staff are great. The hostel is far from the centre of Santa Marta but close to a mall. Good place to stay to relax before heading to Parque Tayrona.
