It is a very good Price Vs Quality place. Rooms are clean, the staff is very friendly and willing to help. The rooms are not very spetial but they are ok, no surprises, no bed bugs, no problems with the water. The kitchen is nice and well equipped although a bit small for the size of the place. Wi-fi is... More

Rooms are nice, the price is cheap, and the family running the place are all very helpful and accommodating. Loved to sit on the roof and have a beer just watching life in the side streets. Recommended.

I was extremely disappointed with my stay at this hostel. Our room was ok, extremely basic. The single beds were tiny in our twin room. The staff were not very helpful and overcharged us by one night citing that we had an early check in, even though charging a full extra night wasn't agreed. Check in is apparently 8am and... More

The staff were generally friendly and helpful. Internet worked ok in our room, but don't expect it. The room was reasonable priced, room small and private bathroom tiny. The roof terrace and hammock terrace were lovely. It's not a palace, but considering the prices some of the hostels were charging for private rooms, this was great.

Its was a pretty good hostel, rooms were clean and have the necessary things for a backpacker. It is in the center of santa marta meaning there is a lot of restauranta and stuff near it. Prices are pretty affordable.. Cheap!!

Stayed for 2 nights. The owners are lovely, don't speak much English but were very patient with my bad Spanish and happy to help in anyway. They gave us good advice for our stay. Rooms are basic and old but ok. Courtyard is nice, kitchen is ok, again basic and old but functional. Location is not the best in my... More

We were meant to stay 3 nights but we decided to cross the road and check other hostels. We found out that this hostel charged double and had smaller rooms. The first room we were shown was so dirty when I put my hand on it, I got like black dust all over. We asked for a second room which... More

Actually, this is not a bad hotel. A bit expensive for the small room with hard bed that you get, but it's clean and the terrace is a nice place to chill, especially when you just return from the Ciudad Perdida tour as we did. The laundry service however was extremely expensive and then it happened, when we were chilling... More

I stayed in total for five nights - before and after my "ciudad Perdida" tour. The house itselves is huge, and has three terraces. One of them with nice hammocks. From the rooftop terrace you have a nice view over the city. The people are friendly and helpful. Whenever you need them, just go and ask. They don't speak english... More

We stayed here for a few nights on either side of our Ciudad Perdida trek. Its a fairly good value place to stay - we had a double room with a bathroom. No aircon, but the fan was OK and kept the room at a reasonable temperature. Staff can help book tours etc which is useful if you´re using Santa... More
