    Good hostel to stay! A 20min walk from the city center or 5min by car. The staff is great and very helpful!

    Fabulous

    25 Feb 2019
    Didn't stay here for long but it was a great place with great amenities, we stayed in a private room which was very comfortable. They offer a lot of different tours that go to any attraction nearby (Tayrona, Minca and as far as Guajira) and the staff were very helpful to set them up. It's not a great location to visit Santa Marta per se because there's not much nearby but it's more of a hub to transfer to other places. We'd stay here again for sure.

    Staff and hostel great. Breakfast also good. The food at the Pizzeria was TERRIBLE though. Lasagne in a metal takeaway tin and pizza that you could break your youthful traveler teeth on. I have also heard other people complaining. Great sushi and Lebanese options within 50m though!
