Very cheap well-positioned hotel, people are very nice, they have a very cute dog and cat, rooms are clean very confortables. If you are looking for a place to only rest and sleep this is the place for you

Compared to other places on the street, come here! The dorm had a breeze and fans- more than I can say for other places but of course it was still hot. Kitchen. Wifi mostly in reception. Locked storage room if you go to Tayrona. The main guy is super nice and welcoming, the others not so much. The water stopped... More

The single room is very small and the attached bathroom is minuscule - you have to sit on the toilet to use the shower and the floor will flood. The only electricity is from the TV plug socket. BUT...it is cheap and you get a single room and bathroom for less than 8 bed dorms elsewhere. The staff are friendly... More

A last minute very good option. It’s not fancy, it’s not for romantic nights but if what you want is a good night’s rest with AC and private bathrooms, tv, and don’t want to spend too much money, it’s a great option. We were backpacking through Santa Marta and found ourselves stuck that night with no place to go. Hospederia... More

We didn't have air conditioning in our room and only a ceiling fan. The toilet was really crowded. Internet only at the reception, although promised otherwise. Water ran out in the morning so we couldn't shower or brush our teeth. Staff were nice and they had a cool kitchen although it was infested with rats.

- small & dark rooms - dirty bathrooms - beds are stiff - it's not welcoming - Well located close to restaurant and beach Santa Marta is not a touristic city, i advise people to go to Taganga Which is better and cooler in order to enjoy the Tayrona Parc

My boyfriend and I stayed at this Hostel for 2 nights. The room was comfortable and they have a nice hammock area on the roof where you can relax. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A lot of travelers head to Tayronna from Santa Marta for a few nights then return to Santa Marta. If you have a large... More

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
