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.


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.

    Very nice hostel with only very few flaws. Maybe regulate the A/C at night as it was freezing cold. Apart from that, all perfect

    Very clean and nice doorms. the rooftop on top is spectacular and offers all the things you need. My tip. Stay in Masaya and go to the weekend rooftop party in la brisa loca so you have the nice and quiet hostel and the party somewhere else.. Very nice common areas where you can easily meet up with people.

    I have stayed with Masaya Bogota as well as Masaya Santa Marta. One of the main differentiators between Masaya and the other hostels are the staff. The staff in both the locations were enthusiastic and happy to help you as much as they can. I also liked the swimming pools in Santa Marta as the weather is pretty hot and the pools are nice way to cool down. I like that the beds in shared dorms have screens to have your own privacy.

    I enjoyed my stay here and was impressed with the investment put into this hostel chain. Beds were comfy and it was nice having a privacy curtain as well. The bar and rooftop was impressive. A great happy hour and the food was tasty as well. The general design and decor of the hostel was well thought out. Fast Wi-Fi was also a bonus. Only cold showers though. Which was okay since it was absolutely baking when I visited!

    Stayed at Massaya for one night only but it was great. Spotlessly clean, great showers, comfortable bed with privacy curtain and individual charging ports at each bedspace. Air conditioning was great which is so needed with the heat. Would definitely recommend. Only downside was lack of equipment / utensils in the kitchen area which was pretty small for the hostel size. Reception staff were so helpful too.

    Excellent hostel that is super beautiful and has nice rooms. The breakfast and pool were highlights but it wasn’t very social so maybe not great for solo travelers.
