    Just left La Guaca and loved it! Very clean and the staff were very nice and helpful, especially Ana who offered lots of advice on Santa Marta and booked our La Cuidad Perdida trip which was great. It is easy to book the trip through the hostel and they use a very good guide company. Highly recommend staying here in Santa Marta. Thanks!

    A great base in Santa Marta! We were greeted by wonderful staff, including the awesome Paula and Daniel. We were allowed to store our bags a day before our check-in as guests to do a tour of Tayrona. Upon returning from Tayrona, I enjoyed a great and relaxing stay. Hung out in the refreshing pool and read in the swaying hammocks. Appreciated the AC and fans in the room to get through the Santa Marta heat. Pizza and other foods available from the restaurant in the front patio. Try the limonada!

    Superb

    I stayed La Guaca for a total of 4 nights and it was super relaxing for me. The hostel is in a super quiet area of town which I preferred, and I always felt safe because the front gate was always locked. The staff was also super helpful and went above and beyond to help me find things or book trips. I booked my lost city trip through them and when I got back I stayed in one of the private rooms. (It was SUPER nice)

    La Guaca is a standard hostel. The breakfast is good and they have lots of activities on offer. It’s a bit of a walk to town and the beds weren’t very comfortable. Otherwise it was fine. Santa Marta doesn’t have a lot going on.
