    The best hostel experience I have ever had. Period. Staff was always ready to help and always respectful of what you did (nobody telling you what to do and not to do). Very comfortable and clean rooms, and even the dorms felt private since all the beds have individual curtains. Breakfast was perfect, the bar was great, and the pool was cool. Very good showers.

    The hostel is such a cool surprise! The beds are double and super comfortable. It's very clean and spacious. The pool is great and also lounge area. The rooftop bar at night is social and in the heart of the city. The personalized breakfast also great!

    I really enjoyed my stay in Santa Marta at Mr Baboon. Great location in city centre with a pool, friendly and and helpful staff and a nice chilled atmosphere with lots of solo travellers. The pool was a bonus. Special shout out to Andrea who works behind the bar and is an absolutely fantastic human being, and just incredibly kind and welcoming.

    I had a great time here. The staff were incredible particularly Andrea. The beds was really comfy and almost double size, roll down blinds for each bed meant great privacy its the first time I haven't absolutely hated a top bunk because of the proper stairs up. Social atmosphere upstairs at night. Pool is nice to chill in the day. Close to nice places for food. Great value.

    Breakfast was great! Personal baskets each morning was a nice and welcoming touch. Location was perfect, however, wear earplugs if you're a light sleeper since the music from the street was quite loud in the room. Would be nice to have more privacy after shower to change (curtains outside cubicles) and/or some hooks in the cubicles to have your clothes there. Also the lockers under the beds are tricky to use, external metal lockers would be nice when room doors are open. Still a great stay :)
