    Only stayed one night but the staff were super friendly and welcoming! They definitely made the stay fun and enjoyable. Pros staff, beds, pool, breakfast. Only con is that beer cost 6000 at the bar while you can get it for 2500 at a tienda, But no outside alcohol allowed. The happy hour is still more expensive.

    Was going to stay 1 night on recommendation from a friend but instead stayed 3. It felt like an oasis in the middle of the city. The pool and air conditioning in the rooms are a big plus. The hotel staff were very nice and suggested to make lunch and dinner every day for a very reasonable price. Location couldn’t be better and the beds are comfortable.

    A nice little oasis in Santa Marta! Great jumping off point or stopover for the region. The bar tenders and front desk staff were immediately very friendly and helpful. Beds are good and enclosed which is nice. Only annoying thing was the sound the door makes when people unlock it with their card all night and all morning long.

    A pool in the middle of Santa Marta old town is just what you need in 30+. Love the bed pods, they’re really comfortable and private. Showers and toilets were well looked after. A great hostel!

    Overall it was good but I personally had an issue with where I slept... I stayed for two nights, the first night my bed was a little dirty, apparently as if no one would have done the cleaning after the checkout the night before... there was sand and hair all over the floor besides the mattress... the pillow smelled NOT so fresh and clean... the second night I got a different bed and the issue of the pillow was the same... the dorm itself was full of smashed bloody insects all over the walls...

    Decent hostel, with a lovely courtyard and pool area, in a good central location (on the main square and very close to the beachfront and restaurants etc). Pretty noisy in the evenings and into the night, though, breakfast very average and the pod style sleeping arrangements might not be to you taste. Mixed staff - girl who checked me in really friendly, but the guy who checked me out was much less so. I asked where I could buy some water nearby and he pretty much shrugged his shoulders.

    Nice clean hostel in a central location. Good pool with a nice outdoor terrace. The barman was good fun and mixed very well. Good hearing him sing some Venezuelan songs from home!

    Very Good

    This was a sociable hostel with great facilities if staying in a dorm. However, the private room was very loud due to both hostel & street noise, and uncomfortable, as bits of ceiling fell on the bed at all times, creating black soot marks on anything on the bed. I let staff know about this twice, and they seemed unconcerned. The building and pool were beautiful, and staff were friendly other than the lack of concern about the ceiling issue. I would imagine there is better value elsewhere.
