Had a really nice stay here. Found the staff very helpful and friendly, nothing was too much to ask for. The rooms are clean and have plenty of space even in the dorms. Cafe is very well priced and food is tasty. Overall great place to stay, good location, clean and comfortable rooms and friendly staff.

The place itself had very nice architecture, very simple yet really nice, the room was big and had high ceiling, so even-though we were very coldly attended by the receptionist we decided to stay. We found out after... The room was not cleaned in long time, it had dust everywhere. The bathroom was also not clean. There was a loud... More

JimAluna, Owner at Aluna Casa y Cafe, responded to this review

We in Aluna Casa y Café do not usually respond to reviews but in this instance we feel we must. We are very sorry that your stay was not as you expected but we are a bit surprised that having written such a bad review of Aluna that you stayed with us for 4 nights booking each night in turn....

We spent 4 nights here. Arrived by van from Cartagena. First impression is that it was very nicely built and maintained. We had a private room with air-con - much appreciated with the heat. The room was very adequate with plenty of space and bathroom and comfortable mattress. No hot water - which seems to be the norm in this... More

I think we stayed 5 nights in the end using it as our base while we discovered the wider area (Lost City, Punta Gallianas, Tayrona ...). Patrick and his staff were very welcomining, friendly, helpful and always happy to offer advise. We had a private room which was very comfortable, the only problem is as we stayed in early January...

We stayed here for one night before and one night after we did the Lost City trek. The hostel is a really well designed space (I think one of the owners is an architect), our room was really comfortable and the staff were really friendly. The breakfast at the cafe was great too. They let us leave our big bags... More

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?
