I Had a great time there. Amazing party hostel. Staff was ok, but not really helpful, food was good, pool was fun. Overall good hostel. good location in down town. Party can go wild sometimes, good places to meet local people.

We were aware that this was a party hostel, but the rooms around the courtyard have NO sound insulaton whatsoever, so it felt like you were sleeping in a club. staff were also not hugely helpful or friendly. shower was dirty and poor water pressure as well. needless to say we moved after one night.

Great location in centre of santa marta. Rooftop has hammocks during the week and is a great place to chill out and has a rooftop bar and rooftop party at the weekends (be aware if you want somewhere quiet may not be ideal on Friday or Saturday). Small pool on bottom floor and bar on second floor also. Stayed in... More

Was a great hostel, the parties on a weekend were insane. The bar staff were particularly wild, especially Janine, she was super fun and she made sure everyone was having a great time, can't recommend this place and her highly enough!

Loved this hostel. Has two bars. The rooftop one has hammocks to chill. Beds are ok... But needs a thicker pillow as it's as if I had no pillow. For the most part staff are really friendly in particular Keider who really is a wealth of knowledge and a good chat.

Very cool hostel, pool, snooker, cable tv, bar, ...and especially an incredible rooftop - Friday and Saturday hosts amazing party! on the other hand, rooms are average and of course if you need quite place to rest it's not the best choice!

We stayed in a shared room of 6 one night and 4 the second. It is very noisy at times. The second night there were lots of bugs in the room and the AC didn't work. They did give us a small discount because of the AC.

I stayed in the air-conditioned first floor dorm. The second floor has a bar and other dorms and the third floor has the bar that is busy on weekends and some private rooms. The noise from the bars didn't really seem that bad in the first floor dorm. I was there on a weekend. I wouldn't want to be on... More

The personnel is not very friendly and the Hotel not very clean. the worse thing: Very noisy so we had to move out to a different Hotel. You even can't Talk in the room. Just don't go there if your like to sleep.
