The dreamers is a bit far from the city, but there is not much to do in Santa Marta anyway. It is a cool place with a party vibe but also allows you to chill out in the hammock next to the pool. The staff was wonderful and they help you with anything you need and book for you all...

BEST HOSTEL EVER. I am only slightly exaggerating. Staff was the best I've seen in South America. They know everyone by name, they're always willing to help you out with literally everything, going way above and beyond to do it. The parties that they throw are great, they're knowledgable about everything going on in the area, the tours . The...

I didn't find to much to do in Santa Marta but this hostel was so much fun. The room was large and bed comfortable. Although it gets very hot. But most rooms have a fan. Staff spoke great English. You have day options that the hostel take you to, for a small price. The coffee trip was great. In the...

Great place! A little outside of the city, but tbh, there's not a ton to do in Santa Marta and if you want to get into town, it's a quick taxi ride. The layout is great -- everyone is extremely social and laidback and the staff is super helpful. Also close to a supermarket and easy to get to Tayrona.

My friend and I first stayed in a double room (but they gave us a triple which was great) and then a 4-bed dorm - both times our stay was excellent. The staff are so friendly and helpful, there are things to do every day. They have a little on site restaurant which is decent and well priced - they...

I spent wonderful days in this hostel. Good food, very nice staff, helpfull all the time, internet is working fast. Good location if you wanna go to Tayrona after or before. Fridays they do a "chiva party" and is awesome. They take us in a bus, free drinks for some hours, and a lot of fun

My partner and I had such a great experience at the dreamer hostel. At first we were a bit concerned how far out of town it was but for what we wanted to do in Santa Marta it was perfect. It is in a great location to get to the national park and they also organise a lot of day...

It is a bit far out of the center, but a perfect base to make your way in the north part. Buses and a mall are still close by and taxi is cheap. Clean rooms and they keep on improving the rooms. Super friendly, English speaking and always helpful staff. You will keep coming back here ;)

Very nice, comfortable, super-clean hostel with fun and helpful staff. Specious kitchen (although hardly any cutlery). Good movie area and great movies every night. Excellent food - one of the nicest i've had in a hostel! Only reason i didn't stay here again was the location. I enjoy going out for short walks in the city and this hostel is...
