The people are very friendly and all facilities are perfect! Ac is not available in dorms but everyone has his personal ventilator. I used to need airco but actually it's much better with a fan. Before going to bed take a swim to cool off and stay cool the night. Also my nose is not blocked anymore due to the...

We stayed at Jackie's twice, either side of a great visit to Palomino, and it's a total winner. The rooftop terrace is sun-drenched but also catches a great breeze and is open and airy and great for hanging out and yarning over a few beers. Their superb free breakfasts are also served up here with multiple options including fruit and...

I stayed in the 8 bed dorm, all the staff were really nice, at the front desk and the volunteers at the bar. It was always really clean, has good location and good breakfast. I would stay there again.

Great place to use as a home base while stopping through and taking trips up the coast. You can store your bigger bag here which comes in handy for Tayrona. Also a good location for Santa Marta right near a popular square. Rooms are basic but have all you need, and there are multiple options for breakfast(included) on the terrace....

The location of this hostel was great. Really close to the main square where all the food and drinking places are. We had a bad experience of this hostel. On checking in the receptionist was more interested in watching YouTube or FB than servicing us. He didn't give us the free towels included, didn't tell us when breakfast was served...

Good location near sea front, park de Los novios, cathedral and restaurants. Nice roof terrace, which could be smarter with some big green plants, but has good views, hammocks and is where you have the straightforward breakfast. Rooms clean with comfortable beds/linen, but furnishings and finish pretty basic. Shower was just a spout rather than proper shower head. Staff helpful...

I only stayed one night but laundry very efficient and staff all very friendly and helpful. Private room but with real computer, rather than my silly little mobile phone, just outside. I am told the roof top bar is great in the evenings but I managed to get to sleep through what I saw as "noise"! A good bit cheaper...
