    Nice hostel and very friendly staff! I highly recommend it! The only criticism is the kitchen’s closing time, which is 7pm and not really suitable for a hostel.

    Santa Marta is very humid. The fan stopped working in our private room in the middle of the night = sweat fest, due to a power cut in the town. Otherwise pleasant and quirky hostel complete with a good free breakfast on the roof and friendly staff and Beagle. Laundry came back smelling very good and perfectly folded. :)

    It had a cute vibe and was clean and comfortable. It was a little further from restaurants than I had expected. I think we just expected a higher quality experience. Recommend for a short stay in Santa Marta.

    The hostel staff were super nice and helpful. The hostel itself is very nice, loved the decor. However, as three girls travelling alone we were not a fan of the location. It is super close to the main area, maybe a five min walk but at night the area gets super sketchy. We went to a hotel for dinner the one night we were there that was 2 minutes from the hostel and at 9:30 pm were told by the hotel staff that it was not safe to walk alone, luckily one of the hotel staff walked us back.

    Best thing about this Hostel was rooftop looking over city! Very breezy (good escape from heat) and a mini plunge pool. Good kitchen. Staff weren’t very helpful (apart from one lady that I don’t think was not permanent!!! :( )

    Nice room and we really liked the rooftop. The employees did not speak any english. Our laundry were done 2.5 hours later than promised why we missed our planned bus.

    It´s a decent hostel. Not the best, but not the worst. It could definitely be more clean. The rooms are also unbearably hot.

    The building itself is beautiful and the rooftop is a nice spot to chill out in the evenings but there are some issues.15 bed dorm is too small and super uncomfortable for 15 people, especially with no ac - fans are not enough. The staff weren't super helpful and very nearly stepping in dog poop on the stairs wasn't fun. Also I kept getting weird shocks from the shower handles‽

    The building itself is really cute but if going for the cheap bed big dorm prepare yourself for an extremely hot sleep! With 16 people in a cramped room and minimal fans it really was a little too uncomfortable/hot! However, the breakfast was good and for a nights sleep, cool rooftop and free breakfast it is pretty cheap. Isn't many communal areas or places to relax, rooftop is cool but pool tiny! plus none of the bathroom doors locked which was a little odd but as I say it was dirt cheap!
