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

Great little spot for a hotel. Staff are friendly. Good location only few minutes walk to ATM and grocery store and restaurants. 10 minutes walk to the main square. Rooms are spacious and it's cleaned once a day. Cafe on site is fabulous, serves great coffee for really reasonable prices and breakfast for $2 US is exceptional (pancakes and fruit... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. We payed for a 4 dorm room with a/c that you can control, which is awesome!! Room and bathroom were clean. Kitchen on third floor is functional and has most of the essential things. Very quite and relaxing, definitely not a party hostel but the location is very central. Lots of nice restaurants and...

Patrick was away so his brother Jim and his wife (Berry, I think) were running the hostel while we were there and were really friendly and helpful. Our en-suite private room was very comfortable and clean with plenty of space so was great for relaxing after hiking Ciudad Perdida. The bed was very comfortable! I would recommend trying to get...

Stayed 4 nights here in May. Pat the owner is a nice guy and very helpful. Cafe serves good food for breakfast at reasonable prices. Less of a party scene but still a good place to meet non lunatic travellers who still enjoy going out. Would definitely recommend it!

But the worst thing was the loundry service. Double the price of all we payed in columbia. And afterward the White clothes were more dirty than... More

We (couple, 41 & 50) stayed at the Aluna Hostel for three nights in April 2014. We paid $41 a night for a spacious room with private bathroom, air-conditioning and cable television. The standard double bed was average comfortable. The bathroom was clean, although the sink had a leak the staff had trouble fixing. We found two cockroaches in the... More
