That is an amazing place full of music !!! I immediately felt comfortable with all the attention given by the owners. Yvonne and Camilo are super friendly and they offer you their knowledge of Colombia, if you talk with them about which places you want to visit. The Hostel is in an awesome location close to the beach, he has...

This was a quiet little hostel. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm. The room was clean but it was really warm all day and night. There was little fans on the wall beside the bed but they made no difference to the heat. The French couple working there were really nice and helpful. The food was only vegetarian and...

Overall we enjoyed our stay here. The main pluses for us where the common area/bar and the french staff. They were always friendly and helpful. The negatives were the bed which was way to soft, the cooking facilities and food storage (1 fridge for everyone, seriously that's nowhere near enough) made cooking pretty much impossible and then there is the...

Stayed here 2 times (before and after track to the lost city). Hostel is extremely cosy. Very good vibe! Just outside of Santa Marta itself, but we were not bothered to go Santa Marta. Hostel has a "hot tub", perfect to cool down on the hot moments, but to chilly to go when the sun is not shining. Small kitchen...

Once I got there with my friends the first thing we saw was a bunch of ppl dancing around, which surprised me in a good way! Then stuff came to me and placed me in a nice dorm with a personal fan right next to my bed. The night was good and woke up to a simple but good breakfast.

After a long hike to the lost city I ended up in this hostel. I felt at home right away. The dorm is really basic, with a fan next to every bed. The staff is really friendly and helpful, witch made my stay really relaxed. I would definitely go back.

“Private rooms are large with double beds, baths and ceiling fans. The daytime heat rises to the dormitories upstairs. Splurge and get a downstairs room!”
