    Mauricio Babilonia was a great spot to stay for the one night we had in Santa Marta when we needed some rest! The location is very good about 10 minutes walking to center, but away from the louder clubs/bar. The building was very secure and staff was extremely friendly. Breakfast was quite basic, but made fresh (eggs, bread, juice, coffee). Just remember to ask them to turn the hot water on for you when you need a shower. If I ever come back to Santa Marta I will definitely stay here again!

    The staff is really helpful and friendly. The hostel has funky decor, and the private rooms upstairs are spacious, clean, and quiet. The rooftop area is nice to relax, and is surrounded by greenery. It was perfect for a night transiting from Minca. Also, yummy breakfast!

    Very much enjoyed my stay here! The staff were super lovely, helpful and very patient with my limited Spanish. The place is clean, comfortable and secure. The wifi and a/c were delightful! Breakfast was great- coffee, fresh OJ, pineapple, eggs and mini croissants. My only real issue was I sadly didnt feel comfortable enough to walk anywhere for dinner. It's a bit poorly lit in the surrounding streets and even tho Parque los novios isn't far- i didn't feel entirely safe walking alone at night

    One of a kind, beautifully decorated and full of a charming collection of unique objects and furniture. Our room had two double beds, air conditioning and a ceiling fan. Ensuite bathroom was very small but sufficient. The staff don't speak much English but were incredibly helpful and let us leave our bags with them for 2 days. Beautiful roof terrace with hammocks and ample greenery. A B&B not a hostel. Don't come here to meet other travellers, come to retreat from the busy streets of Santa Marta

    Comfy beds, really cool decorated room, and clean. Also a nice garden on the roof! The only issue I had was that on the first floor room, the large window (which has a gate over it), is not totally secured on the bottom so the floor got very dirty from leaves and dirt blowing in, as well as a few bugs. I'd avoid this room if I was staying again. The location is also a bit far from the city happenings and is not in the greatest area. Overall it was a good stay though.

    Nice quaint hostel with interesting and quirky decor. Lovely staff as well. The only issue was that it wasn’t as clean as it could have been and certain things looked and felt a bit neglected. It could do with a bit of care here and there. But all in all a nice place to stay and id recommend it to others.

    Stayed one night after lost city trek. Had a bad experience booking a taxi from there to the airport. Nearly missed our flight. The staff member there couldn't speak much English and we didn't speak much Spanish, which made the situation even more difficult. Delicious breakfast included. Room was basic but had a locker. Shower pressure was very poor but warm. Bathroom opened into room with no door, but had a curtain.
