    I only Stayed one night in a private room. It had everything I needed and wanted. My room was very clean and the AC worked amazingly, which was clutch since Santa Marta was so hot at the time. The pool & bar was much needed after a long day of traveling. The location was perfect because it was right in the middle of town which then made it easy to walk every where.

    The hostel is super lovely, beautiful pool area and cool bar that opens up at night. Nice big kitchen and the dorms were comfy and private. Could do with a little ventilation and private bathrooms would be nice. Staff super lovely! Looking forward to coming back.

    Stayed here for 3 nights, the Hostel looks great inside and has everything you need. The pool is good and the kitchen has a lot of equipment and space. The air con is fresh and with the spacious dorms you can really feel it. It's located next to the main Calle with all the restaurants which is ideal to go out at night, only major downside is that the building next to it has 5G emitters on the roof which you can see from the pool. Don't really like my cells being manipulated by EMF.

    Second time staying here. First time was amazing. Second time there were incredibly loud people partying and drinking in the pool til 5am that made it impossible to sleep (very echoey building). Reception did nothing about it.

    Great location, beds are comfy, you have your own power plug and reading light. A/C works Perfect. but it was a pity that our dorm was located just right in front of the local festival, there were loud music all night long. But we were aware the festival is celebrated once per year.

    I only stayed for 1 night. The common areas and kitchen was really nice and open. Very organized. I stayed in a 6 bed shared dorm. The bed was comfy however there was dirty foot prints all over the walls. The bathroom was okay. You can tell is a historic building and an older hostal. Other than that, the staff was great and helpful.

    Bad Everything was overpriced - $5000 for water that's $850 in the supermarket!? I found the staff 'fake nice' and took ages to do stuff like get my change or change my bed to the bottom bunk when they said theyd already done that. They said there was going to be evening activities but they never happened Our wall socket didn't work and the shower had loads of hair in it. Good Nice kitchen Its very aesthetically pleasing Comfy beds Good lockers Air con

    Worst experience ever. Receptionist was extremely unfriendly and charged me an extra 15000 pesos for a dirty blanket. Much better hostels around than this one don’t get misled by the pictures.
