Extremely clean. They have electronic watches that unlock the doors and lockers. 5k for a towel, hotel quality. Beds are in a grid and have privacy curtains, lights, and outlets plus a small area like a boxing ring apron where you can put things. Only 6 people to a bathroom which is nice.

AC is great, wifi is great (first floor and rooftop). Organized events for people to do and get moving! Both nights I stayed there were dance classes available to participate in.

This is NOT your budget option compared to everything else in Santa Marta. This option is for people who really want to enjoy a weekend and for people that have a little bit of extra money that they want to spend. Also, it is NOT quiet. I was more than OK with that since I stayed on a Friday and Saturday and I wanted to experience the nightlife, but if you need the sleep maybe look elsewhere.

Drinks at the bar are around 17,000 for cocktails and 25-27K for advanced drinks, prolly 7k for beers.

This hostel blew me away, the facilities are more like a hotel and I stayed here on 4 different occasions using it as a base for trips around the area. The staff, Monica, Carolina and Naomi are amazing and treated me like family. It’s busy and the vibe is superb, great pool and the beds are super comfortable with fully lockable compartments underneath. This is the only hostel I’d recommend in Santa Marta and all yours can be arranged here. The restaurant was fantastic.

This is one of the best set ups I’ve seen. The beds in the dorms have walls on either side and a curtain at your feet for total privacy. There’s even a space beside the bed to unpack some stuff for easy access. Under the beds are lockers that are opened with your wrist band, no fumbling around with a padlock!
Roof top pool is a god sent in the Colombian heat and a great place to talk to other travellers- I’m travelling alone and always had someone to spent time with or go for dinner
But really the best part of this hostel is the staff. Every single staff made me feel like family, was helpful booking busses and day trips and always greeted me with a smile.
Cristina (host) was so lovely always facilitating activities to get people together. I asked her if she knew any good tattoo shops and she told me she would take me to one the following day, which she did :) she even brought me out dancing when she was off the clock, just an awesome human being!
Nicolas was often the bartender and besides being super chatty he made delicious cocktails and juices.
Carlos has incredible energy, he works the front desk but also teaches dance classes which were so very much fun!
I could go on and on with more names because they all put the time in to get to know me here, I did not want to leave!!

I visited this hostel twice and I loved staying here! The staff is so welcoming and kind. This was the biggest pro. Also they have a nice swimming pool and bar on the rooftop. The beds in the dorms have curtains and it felt like a little private space. The only thing that is missing is a kitchen, but word has spread they are building one. Really enjoyed my stay in this hostel.

This was my first time in Santa Marta coming from a trekking that I did. I stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm- the room was large and bed was covered with a curtain- there is a bag space below the beds. The room had air conditioning, it was clean and the bathroom was modern with hot water.
The bar is quite beautiful!!! alongside with the pool. The hostel is clean and very modern, it has good WiFi -so important for travellers. The reception staff was ok, not as friendly and helpful as others but ok.
It's just 10 min away by walking from downtown.

I would be really careful staying here, one of the men on reception is really horrible. It is a fun place but also he can remove you at any minute if he doesn’t like you. I saw three different travellers being removed, some at 5am just for simple things like bringing a beer home. He was so horrible to lots of people and it ruined the experience of the hostel. Viajero in Medellin is much better. I recommend staying somewhere else here in case the reception man doesn’t like you.

We arrived here at 12.15 and were unable to check in until 15.30. The front desk baggage and check in need work. We qued for 20 minutes to check in. The food is v v basic. The rooftop bar and pool and activities as well as the room were all very nice and comfy. The staff at the front desk were very dismissive and rude

Stayed here on my travels and would highly recommend! The staff were very friendly and accommodating, particularly Maria Paula and all the desk staff. They were a great help organising trips and helping me out to get laundry done. Fantastic hostel! Thanks!
