    My favourite hostel so far, great location and very clean. It’s a nice sociable place but still has a very chilled vibe. The staff really made it for me. They are extremely helpful and so lovely, A very close team/family and this reflects on their work and customer service. Thank you for a great stay! 💛

    Stayed here one night before heading out to Tayrona. Great social hostel but not heavy party-vibe. Staff was super friendly and helpful and the center courtyard area is really nice for relaxing.

    Republica Santa Marta is a lovely hostel! Their staff is super sweet, the breakfasts are made to order and delicious, their pool is nice and I really enjoyed the location. The bar is also a fun place to hang out, particularly on karaoke night. The beds were comfortable, though the top bunks are a bit of a climb. My only suggestion is to improve the laundry services. Accepting a list of items instead of counting each piece with the staff would be nice. Would definitely stay again! Thank you!

    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.

    Very Good

    Low rating for atmosphere. This was the shiniest, but least social hostel I’ve been to so far. It really is beautiful on the eyes, beds comfy, etc. but, the layout and seclusion of seating areas really kill the atmosphere. There isn’t a good place to come together, and 3 nights there with 0 social scene was a real buzzkill. I’m a super social and extroverted person, but this place had be going to bed by 10. Expensive drinks. Eh, i guess i didn’t like it lol. Don’t go here as a solo!

    Pool is very nice but box beds are very hot and weird. Don't go here if you're a lone traveller, no atmosphere at all.
