    I had a really awesome time at this hostel! It has a good balance of chill vibes and fun social gatherings. The food and drinks in the bar and restaurant are super cheap. The rooms are decent and have good sized lockers. The pool is a nice asset as well! The staff here are amazing and made our stay an absolute treat, we even extended our stay by three days!

    Everything was 10 out of 10 its close to two major supermarkets in a safe area out of the madness of the city ,huge kitchen area to cook , giant tv to chill , extremely clean & always smelled so fresh , staff were just amazing from desk staff to cleaning & chefs everyone was so friendly . All I’ll say is beware of the hammocks because once you lie in one it gets harder to leave this hostel ha highly recommend staying here 🙌🏼

    Pro - Clean hostel just on the outskirts of Santa Marta main town. Close enough to walk to the bus station (however with bags to hot, only costs 5 pesos in a taxi). Pool is decent, however could be cleaner. Bedrooms were kept clean, highly recommend a room with AC due to the temperature. Staff were really nice, friendly and accommodating. Cons - the staff do not allow you the remote for the AC, and you have to ask them to turn the AC up and down, on or off, even throughout the night.
