Property Description

Primaluna is unique in that it appeals to backpackers on a budget as well as travellers looking for a bit more luxury during their stay. It offers a fun setting for young people looking to party but maintains a quiet atmosphere ideal for families with young children. It has a bar as well as a restaurant open from 7am to 10:30pm. The menu offers dishes that are a fusion between the Italian and the Colombian cuisine, a real pleasure for the taste (as homemade ravioli stuffed with robal, fresh tomato and shrimps or Mediterrean robal fillet with tomato sauce, black olives and parsley and many many more). The pride of the restaurant is the wood oven, ingredient of the crispy pizzas prepared at Primaluna’s. Musicians and artists from many different countries come to play their music and showcase their artwork. The staff is also able to arrange tours to popular local attractions like Cabo de la Vela/Punta Gallinas, Lost City, Indigenous Village, horseback riding, or tubing in the Palomino River. The bar offers happy hour on cocktails every day from 5pm-8pm as well as a karaoke night once a week.

It is located 70 km from Santa Marta and less than 70 km from Riohacha, the regional capital of Guajira. At Palomino you can relax on the beach waiting for the sunset with a cold beer in your hands or, for the most adventurous, it is possible tubing along the Rio Palomino which flows into the Caribbean, organizing excursions by bike or walking to the indigenous villages, or at the Tayrona Park and Ciudad Perdida (Lost City).

The dorm rooms are really hot! And bright because the light isn’t turned off until 1am ish and shines into the room. They also only have tiny lockers for a day bag. We changed to a private which was quite nice! Location is great they also have a good gym. The food and breakfast was fantastic and the waitress Luz was lovely!!! However the lady at reception was very unhelpful and rude. Also not a very social place.

the hostel is well priced and has a nice pool area. the 8 person dorm is very very small and crowded. it gets very hot too as most of the fans in the room don’t work. shower is cold. you have to pay for drinking water unlike most hostels which is pretty poor. the location is good being close to the beach:

Not really a hostel, more of a Hotel restaurant. Cheap stay with decent facilities, budget backpackers beware as the kitchen is well below par- no utensils and flamethrower stove. Dorms are a little dilapidated but if you’re hardy you’ll manage- had mozzy nets. Decent location for other big hostels, no chance of socialising here.
