I really enjoyed my stay at the Dreamer. The staff could not have been nicer or more accomodating, and the location was perfect for Lost City and nearby beaches like Bahia Concha - Tayrona, happy to be outside downtown (2 hours walking around were more than enought for me) Breakfast buffet was delicious as well as the pizzas at night,...

Fantastic place. Really clean and comfortable rooms with big lockers and a beautiful chilled out pool and bar area. Restaurant does great breakfasts and pasta dishes. Next to a big shopping mall with ATMs and big supermarket. The bus stop to go Tayrona, Palomino and Taganga is just round the corner. Kept coming back again and again.....

Really enjoyed our stay. Great place to relax for a few days beside the pool! Supermarket is only a 5 minute walk and really good kitchen facilites to prepare your own food. The staff were great and really helpful especially when helping you to organise trips.

Although a tad more expensive than other hostels, the rooms were clean, it had a great pool, the majority of the staff are excellent and the atmosphere is very good. It does have a bit more of a hotel feel about it, people get up early...

My husband and I found the Dreamer in the Lonely Planet guidebook. The rooms were clean, the pool fantastic, and the staff were really helpful. We booked our next night at the Dreamer Hostel in Palomino and were even more impressed - the setting is a 5 star location. When we returned to Santa Marta, our flight was delayed and...
