    Great hostel for good money. Almost felt like staying in a Hotel :) super modern, nice beds with a fan, locker, plug and curtains! Nice mattress. Swimming pool is great. Kitchen has everything you need, breakfast is served in the morning by a very nice lady. Good location close to the beach, restaurants and cafes. Returned here a second time.

    Super, super clean, great AC and the beds were comfortable. The breakfast was nothing special but given the price of the hostel, it was okay. Would stay at again if in Santa Marta.

    Our biggest problem was the lack of strong wifi throughout the hostel. We could not get signal from our beds nor the kitchen. Free eggs, toast, juice, and coffee for breakfast daily was nice. Good access to the boardwalk. Good pool area for lounging and swimming but the no smoking was not enforced at all, which made it hard to enjoy the pool shrouded by cigarette smoke. Helpful front desk staff, free soap in the showers, and lovely cubicle style beds for extra privacy & quiet in the dorm.

    Great value! Nice pool and a good kitchen. Liked the hang out area. They always lock the gate for entry to the hostel only issue is that the lockers for our dorms did not all have handles and some where not there at all. Otherwise a great choice for Santa marta! Close enough to the social areas to walk but not so close the noise bothers you. Slept like a charm.

    Good: Pool was nice (a little dirty), beds were cool but got really hot at night, staff was available 24/7 and the location was in the center near the port and great restaurants. Bad: toilets were always dirty or broken(out of use), barely an AC, no soap in the bathrooms to wash hands, many facilities were bad.

    They had no smoking signs all over the place but the rule was never enforced. The rooms smelled like smoke most of the time.

    Overwhelmed by people there. I’m sure it was all guests but families are staying there with kids. So running around all day and yelling. First country hostels allow kids and honestly made it uncomfortable. Place was right off the main road so always loud but convenient to walk around. With all the kids hostel was messy and unkept. Rooms and pool area with trash everywhere. Would not stay again.

    The private room we stayed in felt like we were in a garage. Smelled really musty and a lot of stuff was broken. Generally needs some maintenance. Didn’t have my booking when I arrived and then tried to charge more than I had booked. An ok hostel for a night en route to somewhere else but probably wouldn’t stay again.
