    This was an amazing hostel! They did a great job of making sure we had everything we needed. Additionally, there is an accessible food and bar at the location itself. They also let us store our bags for free when we traveled to Tayrona National Park.

    We had a great stay at Dreamer hostel. Lovely swimming pool, great onsite restaurant and comfy beds. Showers and toilets were a bit basic but mostly clean and functional. Staff were super helpful with any questions we had. Loads of info on activities and tours available. We would stay again!

    Had the most amazing stay here - we extended for 2 nights because we loved it so much. Not much around it but you don’t need to leave the hostel - it has a bar, kitchen for cooking, flat screen TV and sofa area, pool/ping-pong table and a swimming pool. The atmosphere is incredible and the rooms are near but tucked away so you can still get a decent night’s sleep if you want it. An array of activities and close to Minca and Tayrona Park for day trips. The food from the restaurant is incredible quality and w

    Nice quiet hostel. Tayrona was closed when we stayed so it was very chill. Right on the bus line to Palomino for 12 mil pesos.

    Location not great. Beds uncomfortable, paid for two nights stayed one. Breakfast choice not great. Not atmosphere or vibe. Might have been the time of year I visited but other places have seemed much better in atmosphere. All outdoor areas, near pool and trees so rife with mosquitoes, wifi is patchy this was my main reason for leaving along side the warm Aircon in the rooms. Shame as great looking hostel. Didn't ask for a refund. I feel the place needs the money for a reconfigure maybe.
