Overview

Get a taste of the Caribbean life at Hostel Masaya Santa Marta. We've got two swimming pools, not to mention a chilled-out rooftop terrace with a barbecue and an on-site bar. The aim of the game at this cool colonial house is to get you involved in Colombian culture, so we put on activities like salsa sessions and empanada-making classes. With a mix of spots for lounging, partying and socialising (including a cinema and games centre with a pool table), you can hang out with other backpackers or just take it easy.

Location

If you're flying to Santa Marta, catch a bus or colectivo (minibus) from Simón Bolívar International Airport to the city centre where we're based. Just look for one that says 'Centro' or 'Kra 5' and you'll be with us in about half an hour. South America's first cathedral, the Basilica of Santa Marta, is a 3-minute walk from the hostel. When evening falls, take the 7-minute stroll to Parque de Los Novios, a square surrounded by lively bars, restaurants and clubs, to experience the buzz of the city after dark.

Rooms and Dorms

Settle into a mixed dorm to really enjoy the hostel vibe. Each bunk comes with a power socket (handy for overnight charging), a locker and free linen. A curtain gives you that bit of extra privacy, and there's a fan to keep the air fresh. Private rooms blend hostel attitude with boutique hotel style. All rooms and dorms are en-suite and have air con – something you'll definitely appreciate during Santa Marta's tropical summer.

Extras and activities

Sway in a hammock with a novel from our book exchange or FaceTime friends back home using the free Wi-Fi. We've got a kitchen where you can make snacks – using ingredients picked up from our shop – and a café for hot drinks and treats. Our staff can arrange trips, whether to the Caribbean beaches of Tayrona up the coast or treks to the Lost City hidden in the jungle.

    Great place. Definitely worth the money! Feels like staying at a hotel, yet with all the benefits of staying at a hostel. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. They organize daily activities at the hostel at night, and will help you with organizing day trips and other excursions. The rooftop pool and bar is awesome, and the food! The hostel is very popular - so all the taxi drivers know of it - makes it very easy when you want to get back from random places in Santa Marta.

    I’m in love with this hostel! I’ve never been so comfortable in a dorm - the beds are like little cabins! The layout of the building is great, with a whole top floor bar/restaurant/kitchen/lounge/pool area, and a second pool on the ground floor. The staff are great, so friendly and helpful, and there’s an in-house tour agency at the entrance.

    Masaya has an epic rooftop with pool, bar and restaurant overlooking areas of the city. Enjoyed our stay! The 2nd pool downstairs is good when you don’t want to be in direct sunlight on the roof. Pools are quite warm and be better cooler. 6 man dorm was super cramped - not much space to put your bags etc. and bathroom was small too. But nice enough. AC is controlled by reception and needs to be turned down it was too hot! Staff were helpful and we ended up booking a double room our next stay :)

    We only stayed here over night but it was a really nice hostel with friendly staff. 2 pools was great and nice big kitchen on the roof terrace which was also a nice place to relax and enjoy the sun. Location isnt too central but only 2 blocks from the seafront. Rooms were big and clean. Breakfast wasnt included which was a bit of a draw back and not much atmosphere but overally a very nice place.

    I was only there for one night. Staff were really helpful. I didn't love the area or Santa Marta, particularly arriving alone at 10pm felt a bit sketchy. The hostel was a little partyish and flashpacker for me.

    Masaya is an amazing hostel, very clean, very helpful staff, very relaxed atmosphere. Not the most social so I would maybe not recommend to solo travellers. The pools were great in the summer when it gets super hot ! The only negative side for us was the location of the hostel. Santa Marta is the only place we went to in Colombia that did not feel 100% safe. That is not the hostel’s fault, but it might be good to consider when booking! Overall Masaya was amazing and a highlight of Santa Marta.

    Was annoyed that their washing machine was "broken" for laundry. It was a reason I booked here as I had come from tayrona. Otherwise it's a nice hostel and good security if you need to leave luggage while you go to tayrona/taganga/Minca.

    Even though it’s located in downtown, the location seems like a dangerous area (we heard of a theft a few blocks away). We didn’t go out a lot because we were staying one night on our way to Tayrona Park, so the hostel was OK for us with a good atmosphere. The breakfast was good.
