    The Positano Hostel will offer you an enjoyable experience in Santa Marta. Its cozy atmosphere, cleanliness, friendly service and proximity to the city center are all features that will contribute to a most pleasant stay. To complement your experience, the Colombian-style hostel patio features a convenient and very affordable restaurant where you can enjoy Italian food in a relaxing, friendly atmosphere at a very reasonable price. My stay in Positano hostel has been the best stay I ever had.

    This hostel was very good. My girlfriend got really ill as we returned from Tayrona and the staff were very nice and helpful. The place itself is beautiful, with its pool and patio. Breakfast is quite basic, but ok. Only suggestions: they should include a mop or sth in the bathrooms so one can dry up after taking a shower; and perhaps put a sign in the kitchen informing that the water is not drinkable (it isn't anywhere in Colombia's coast). Would really recommend!

    Not a bad hostel but the bathrooms and kitchens were not clean during our stay. It's not a pleasant site to see insects crawling all over the sink near the dishes and near food storage.

    Some friends and I needed a Hostel to stay the day before our trip to Tyrona Park and this was a good location. It was in walking distance to all the activities and facilities within Santa Marta which was great and the aesthetics of the hostel were good. The only issues I had revolved around the cleanliness. The small pool they had did not look the cleanliest for the water had a cloudy appearance. The kitchen and bathroom also were are the unclean side but it was manageable. Good location!

    Sadly I was the only person staying at the hostel so I can't say much about the atmosphere.

    Really cute hostel, all new and the facilities are great. However, the bed was particularly uncomfortable, our room had a terrible smell for what seemed to come from the plumbing and the restaurant was closed while we were there. It’s a little out of the historic center, but no more than a 5-10 min walk during which we never felt unsafe (even at night).

    The worst hostel I've ever stayed at and I would recommend it to no one. When we arrived we felt unwelcomed and the staff acted as if we were a burden. When we arrived to our room they let us know our AC didn't work (which is horrible in such a hot town), on top of that our room was tiny, the bathroom also smelt like sewage and was coming up the drain by the day we left. To remedy this they ended up pouring vinegar down the drain which just made it smell worse. Cancelled our other days. Awful.
