My stay at the Dreamer Hostel came with a big caveat - I was robbed on my bus from Cartagena to Santa Marta - so perhaps my experience wasn't the average one. Still, I felt the staff weren't prepared practically or sympathy-wise to help me. They had no useful information about the (diabolical) police service in Santa Marta - even sending me the long way to the police station on a day it was shut. Then, they offered me no credit or leeway, forcing an acquaintance I'd made on the bus to pay for my first 2 nights in the hostel, and demanding I could only stay with a copy of my passport (even though I'd had it nicked). Beware also that the hostel is not in the centre of Santa Marta, so you'll need taxis everywhere. There's a pool and a bar there which I imagine would be relaxing if one wasn't in my stressful situation!
