I stayed a few nights here in August on the way do to the trek to the Ciudad Perdida and on the way back. It was a lovely stay and a great place to rest after the rigours of the hike. Clean, quiet and very central. Nice breakfast with the best coffee I tasted in my entire three weeks in... 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

My wife and I stayed here for a week at the end of August and loved the relaxed vibe of the place. As many people have mentioned below, this is not a party hostel but a great place to hang out and from which to explore the area. Aluna is very clean and the private rooms are good value for... More

Very nice hostel/hotel with cosy rooms. Rooms are cleaned every day. We stayed five nights in total. Breakfast is not included, but that's actually good news since you get to choose your own and it's reasonably priced. Tasty as well, a lot better than the included crap they serve you in other places in this price range. Coffee is free... More

We stayed a couple of nights in aluna, and one night we stayed in tayrona park. The first 2 nights we stayed in a room that offered airco but that we did not use, and it was a very luxury place! When we came back they knew we do not use airco so they gave us a room without, but... More

It is a small and cosy hotel with an amazing breakfast comparing to other hotels. When you go to Ciudad Perdida or the lost city you can leave you're bags locked and safe in the hotel. The people from the hotel are very kind!

Really nice place to stay. The owner and the staff provided good service. The double room and the share kitchen were great... well recommended. Although the area of the city centre looks a bit caothic during the day the night has a great environment as it is close to el parque de los novios.

We recently stayed in the dorm room here. There were lockers and great kitchen facilities. The cafe serves amazing breakfast and fresh juices which set you up for the whole day. Perfectly located so that everything is only a few minutes walk away. Staff are super friendly and helped us organise all of our day trips. Will definitely be going... More

We stayed here one night as we arrived in Santa Marta. The rooms were ok (although we were greeted by one big cockroach in each room) but didn't have hot water, nor AC (just an extremely noisy fan on the ceiling). The place is well located and the owner was nice. We had breakfast at the hotel the next morning... More
