Once I got there with my friends the first thing we saw was a bunch of ppl dancing around, which surprised me in a good way! Then stuff came to me and placed me in a nice dorm with a personal fan right next to my bed. The night was good and woke up to a simple but good breakfast.

El casa del ritmo has to be one of my favourite hostals that i have had the pleasure to stay in during my time in Latin America. Its just 2 blocks from the beach and it is situated in Santa Marta´s safer areas. The hostal is cozy, relaxed and intimate, the staff are extremely friendly and helped me get the... More

I really love this place, the people of the staff always helps you with tourist information, the location is closed to the beach... really good food, drinks and music. It's a good place to have a complete relaxing time. I definitely recommend Casa.

Creepy people who appear to work there but either do nothing or have nothing to do. A guy that just hogs the couch and tv. He just chain smokes and drinks coffee. I don't even think he works there. Wait, I saw him blend some sort of drink once but I can't be sure it was for a customer. I... More

After a long hike to the lost city I ended up in this hostel. I felt at home right away. The dorm is really basic, with a fan next to every bed. The staff is really friendly and helpful, witch made my stay really relaxed. I would definitely go back.

What a wonderful little hostel! Tranquilo, affordable and close to downtown Rodadero. I stayed at Casa del Ritmo for a weekend group seminar and enjoyed the laid-back atmosphere, the friendly staff and the unique "beach house" decor. The owners are accommodating and kind. The kitchen is minimal but has a nice bar and pretty dining area. Breakfast is inexpensive and... More

If you travel a long time it's good to have a place to stay where you can feel at home. Thanks to the staff, Casa del Ritmo is like being home. We have been their two times and if I go to Colombia again we know where to go in Sante Marta!

I'm a picky sleeper and this place is quiet after midnite so it is perfect to sleep and have energy next day. It is a short walk to the nice and fun beach of Rodadero. Hostel is clean with plenty to do (games, computer, nice big plasma TV, pool, bar...). It is 1 min from the cheap mototaxis or busetas,... More

Really cute hostel. Friendly, helpful,welcoming staff. No hot water in shower but you don't need it it's always so hot in Santa Marta. Hostel is in Rodadero which is actually better to stay than SM if you want to be walking distance to a nice beach (about 10mins) and somewhere a bit quieter. No air con but ceiling fan and... More

Having stayed in Santa Marta central and taganga. I was recommended this place by a friend. Totally chilled atmosphere, good food and whilst it is a walk from the beach is in a good location. If you take a 10 min bus you can go to the beach at their sister hostel playa del ritmo. Great place and highly recommended.
