The single best experience I’ve ever had travelling! Jason and Gloria went way out of their way to show us around. During our stay, all guests ended up extending their stay, us included, as the atmosphere is absolutely incredible! Jason has an incredible way of bringing all guests together and creating a family. He clearly does it for the love of the game rather than for reviews or money. They would drive us to different spots and spend the day with us just to make sure we don’t get “gringo:ed”. And Gloria a.k.a La Patrona is the most adorable and helpful person I’ve met in ages. The hostel itself is an absolute gem, but Jason and Gloria made our stay unforgettable.

Kaia Hostal has been absolutly relaxing and beautiful. The Staff is very helpful and friendly, the surroundings are filled with love and spirit. For people who seek some quite in all of the Buzz, this is the place to be. The hotel is a bit off the centre, but with a local bus or taxi you are there in a moment.

Brilliant hostel! Loved our stay. Great breakfast, staff and facilities. We spent a day on site chilling in the pool, in hammocks and playing pool/table football. Also facilities to make your own food. Not the best location but easy access to the bus stop. Highly recommend!

You have really picked the right hostel to stay at! The owner and the staff are super chill and nice. The breakfast is really tasty and the location is not so bad either, you have to take a taxi to the center but that will only take ten minutes! The beds are also very comfortable so the price for all of this is perfect!

This hostel is absolutely beautiful making you feel like you're hidden somewhere in the jungle rather than in a large city. It is easy to entertain yourself in the common area with both the table football and pool table. And the room was very spacious and having 2 stories and a balcony felt like luxury, especially for such a cheap price.

If you need to stay one night before going to Tayrona Park this hostel is a good option because it's close to the bus stop. But it's about 30 minutes walking to the bay and downtown. The hostel is beautiful, clean and there is a swimming pool. I truly recommend.

I have been here more than once and I'm definitely going to be here again as soon as I am in Columbia again!
Mary and the rest of the crew are super lovely, helpful and they are running the hostel pretty well. If there are any questions or doubts just ask them and they'll do all possible to help you out. It is also super clean and relaxing and the best thing is that it is still improving. Im already excited to get back.
Muchas gracias amigos.😍

I stayed here for one night in a private room. It was fan only but I wasn’t too hot in the grand scheme of things. Bed was a mattress in the floor but for the price, I have no complaints. I didn’t use the outside areas but they looked very nice. Pool is a good addition. Owners were super friendly and helpful. WiFi is good. Showers were cold but it wasn’t a problem.

I LOVED this hostel.
Mary and the family are lovely - so helpful and accommodating. The location for me was perfect - ideal for buses to Taganga, Parque Tayrona, Palomino etc, and also a 5 minute bus ride to the centre of Santa Marta. They have dorms with A.C. or with fan - I went for the dorm with A.C. and it was perfect in the humidity of Santa Marta.
There's a small but well-equipped kitchen and two big supermarkets nearby. Good wifi and everywhere is very clean.
The chill out areas are awesome - a huge cabana with hammocks, chairs and a Bluetooth speaker so that you can play your own music. Great laundry service - not the cheapest but the cleanest my clothes have been after any laundry service in Colombia. I nearly forgot to mention the pool - super clean and amazing to cool down in. This hostel is super chilled, go here!

Only stayed the one night, as the room didn't have air con/our fan wasn't powerful enough. Pool was awesome, with hammocks to relax in, but there weren't many people staying at the time, and so it was missing a fun vibe.
