This hostel is clean, staff are friendly, food is amazing. All rooms open onto a large courtyard with pool/bar/restaurant.
Hostel is 5mins taxi from main bus terminal out of Santa Marta.
If you’re looking for somewhere chill away from the hustle of Santa Marta, this is the spot!
An excellent hostel for a couple of relaxed days. Even though the hostel isn’t in the centre of Santa Marta, it has everything you need in close proximity - a great supermarket, a pharmacy and mall. The food available at the hostel was amazing (fish tacos!). The pool and social areas are the best we’ve stayed in. Our 4 bed dorm was great, just super hot at night as it had only fans. But everything amazing
I loved this hostel! It was perfect for me to relax as that was just what I needed. The pool is lovely, and the TV and kitchen area are good. The staff are lovely and welcoming. I didn't want to leave! x
The location is convenient for trips outside Santa Marta since it’s close to the bus stop. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The facilities are excellent and the property well maintained so it was comfortable to stay. Some rooms without AC can get quite hot though. Food is decent for the price. There isn’t much of a social atmosphere during my stay but that’s okay since I was looking for a place to relax. If you come in with the right expectations, it’s a wonderful place to be.
Great hostel and the staff are so lovely and friendly! Although it was pretty quiet, due ti being low season I can imagine during busy times it would be a lot of fun. The price for food is really reasonable and the portions are very good size. Would definitely recommend this place
A nice relaxing hostel, not really too much going on but it’s great for a more chilled time out of the hustle and bustle of the centre. About a 15 min drive from the centre of Santa Marta but the pool is lovely, the food is a tad expensive but tasty and the pool table is a huge bonus! Not the most sociable hostel I’ve stayed in but could just be the time I was there. For a more relaxing stay, this is a great option in Santa Marta but for a more sociable and party atmosphere I would recommend somewhere more
Staff pretty lazy. Not really keen to tell you about tours or what you can do from Santa Marta. Long term stayers and staff tend to keep to themselves, along side a pretty unsociable atmosphere. Heard they kept the more updated and modern 10 beds for the long term stayers? But May not be true. Men's showers and toilets were being fixed for half our stay and the upstairs quieter social area was blocked off for a while too and the only place we could cook. Had to eat there which wasn't the cheapest but chef w
