This place is such a nice place, helpful and kind staff, close to a lot of things and safe. Loved the cafe and the fresh fruit juices. I stayed in the dorm and it was plenty of space and nicely furnished. I am sure that the private rooms are just as nice, if not nicer.

My girlfriends and I stayed here 2 nights. Patrick and the staff were kind, helpful and so accommodating, The location is great, a short walk to the beach and square with some great night life. They stored our bags while we visited Costeno, arranged our transport to and from as well as our shuttle to Cartagena. Breakfast was fabulous and... More

Simply a perfect hostel. Comfortable rooms. Spacious dorm. Good and affordable breakfast and lunch. Friendly staff. Close to the old town square. Ideal jumping off point for everything around Santa Marta. Well layed-out building that looks good as well. Fast WiFi (most of the time…). Good info about whatever you need. Quiet. Reasonable prices. What more can you ask for?

We stayed at Aluna for over a week using it as a jumping off point for Parque Tayrona and the Sierra Nevada. Our room was comfortable, quiet and clean. But what made our stay really special was the great advice provided by Patrick and Jaime and their real interest in wanting us to make the most of our time in... More

Aluna is special. Patrick, the Irish ex-pat has a heart of gold and local insight - he provides welcoming well run and lovely space a few blocks from Parque de los Novios in the heart of Santa Marta. Excellent value. Service is tops with English Speaking helpful staff - Jaime and Patrick - that do more than check in the... More

We have spent two nights at this hotel and everything worked fine enough. Friedly and english speaking staff who offered their help constantly and nice clean rooms. The only upside is that bfast is not included in the price which was a littlr surprise but overall I can only recommend this place.

We stayed two nights here in a double room with air-conditioning. The room was small but adequate. The staff was friendly, welcoming and informative. The location near the historic core was great. We walked to the Parque de los Novios for dinner and enjoyed the ambiance. We opted to go to Rodadero in the afternoon as the local beach is... More
