The tour desk can offer tips on getting around the area and arrange tours to the mountains, the main beaches, and to the Lost City, as well as diving activities and horseback riding.

Named after different countries, we offer a wide range of accommodation from comfortable and spacious dorms to twin and double rooms in suite (air con available) warmly, decorated with hand-painted murals, with both private bathrooms and shared facility options.

Come grab a tropical drink a The Coelhos Bar while you shoot pool or play ping pong with friends. Wake up to a buffet breakfast and join us for lunch or dinner at our onsite Italian restaurant offering home-made pizzas, pastas and international cuisine.

    First off, I love this hostel from the staff to the food and everything about it. There’s a pool, pool table, ping pong, giant jenga, bar, and possibly anything that you need without ever leaving the place. It’s super close to a mall so if ever need to get groceries or pull out cash from an atm you can. A BIG SHOUT OUT to Jessica for being the best receptionist/server/infoGuide/securityguard/multi tasker. Anything you need from taxi to finding out what to do in Santa Marta she’s the girl!!

    Given what a difficult situation the world is in with COVID, I cannot thank the Dreamer staff enough for helping my friends and I try to navigate a very stressful situation. A few days of relaxation we had there really helped lift my spirits. I hope to back to Colombia one day under better circumstances. Muchas gracias por todo ayuda : )

    Super cozy and social hostel with good food. I canceled my stay at one of the bigger hostels in the center after one night and re-booked at the Dreamer Santa Marta. The place in the center was good for a night of partying, but the rooms, bathrooms, restaurant were all vile; totally uninhabitable. The Dreamer was an amazing place to lay low for a few days before flying home because of coronavirus... When I resume my trip in Colombia post-Corona, I'll be back at the Dreamer!

    With all he crazy things that were going on in the world, I am truly appreciative of the Dreamer staff helping out anyway they could. From flight cancellations to help with transport and finding other travelers to carpool with me, I made it back home to Germany and leave with a half empty heart to not be able to spend all the time that I had planed in Colombia. But i guess this means I will have to return to finish what I came for down the road. Until next time! Abrazo grande a todos

    Great place to unwind for a few days. They have everything you need onsite. Good food options (especially the pizza) and kitchen if you want to cook yourself. Pool has a cool shape to it with daybeds and hammocks. Chill during the day (i was able to read mu book) & a nice social atmosphere at night

    This hostel has everything, beautiful pool and facilities, good food, nice rooms. How ever Jessica the recepcionist could be the best of the place, she is super helpful and helped me to make my mind with all the great places I have to meet. She knows taxi drivers, hostel staff in Taganga and who ever you may need to get out of troubles. I definitely go to Dreamer again if I go back.

    Dreamer hostel was great overall. Really cool common areas to hangout and socialize. Close to a big mall and bus routes to hiking. Only down side is no hot water for showers and it’s a little far from the downtown restaurant/bar areas. Jessica the front desk person was very helpful drawing out maps of locations and scheduling buses for me later in my trip.
