Property Description

Located right on the most quiet and pretty Beach of Santa Marta (Cabo Tortuga) and close to Santa Marta´s airport, Playa del Ritmo is the only beachfront Hostel of Santa Marta, specially designed for travellers to experience the real Caribbean life style!

We have an amazing Bar / Vegetarian Restaurant in front of the beach, where beers are always cold and good music is always playing.
In case you´re a good cook, we have a guest kitchen where you can cook whatever you want!

At Playa, backpackers from all over the world spend days chilling on the beach, playing volleyball and football, doing yoga, going diving, tanning and enjoying the most beautiful sunsets in the shade of our palm tree hut, listening to the best Caribbean tunes! And we have KAYAKS AND PADDLE BOARDS FOR GUESTS.

Playa del Ritmo is the only BEACHFRONT Hostel where you can find dorms with Air Conditioning or Fan from 4 up to 6 persons with an amazing Sea View :)

Should the beach life become a bit too much hard work,you can easily go to Rodadero area (5 minutes by bus) or to Santa Marta’s downtown (15-20 minutes) where you can find supermarkets, cash points, shopping, restaurants and nice bars… it´s also very easy to get to the different attractions such as Tayrona, Minca, Lost City, Palomino, you just have to go to the reception for good travel advice...And we are just 5 minutes away from the Airport.

If you are looking for a good place to relax, rest your feet, and have a cold beer, this is your place.

    The beach is a little paradise with few vendors, no tourists and the best sunsets ♡

    Superb

    I absolutely love this hostel! The hostel is on the beach, they have an amazing vegetarian restaurant with delicious foo, a fantastic bar with happy hour, and the staff is super friendly. There is no reason to leave the hostel. The only slight downside is that the lockers are in the main lobby area and not in the rooms, and the proximity of the city of Santa Marta is not close. But like I said, there is no reason leave if you want the beach, amazing food and drink, and a great atmosphere.

    Fabulous

    I flew in late and stayed one night before the lost city trek. This place was a perfect starting point because it was close to the airport and I got picked up last for the trek. Would've liked to stay longer to enjoy the beach

    Good

    It may have once been a great hostel but a little maintenance would do this place a lot of good. It is very run down, the showers are just high pressure taps and the rooms that aren’t ‘deluxe’ definitely need some work done on them. The charm of being a bit more secluded from Santa Marta just doesn’t really lift the atmosphere as needed, but with a bit of work it could.
