There in no other hostel I would stay at in Santa Marta and I have been to and stayed at others. Been to CdR twice now. It's name says it all. So expect a great selection of music from morning till night at Cafe levels. Not club levels like a lot of other hostels in Santa Marta like to think they are. The staff is knowledgeable, warm and courteous. Colombians, in the know, like to go to Casa de Ritmo for friendly conversations, a drink, a bite, or a night-stay. So if you have issues with actually meeting Colombians in Colombia you might just want to stay in your country, or try one of the more touristy towns like Taganga. The CdRl is kept very clean, as are the bathrooms and beds. The hostel is one block from beach and this coast gets hot, so if it is too hot for you ask for the room with the AC. Rodedero is the nicest beach in Santa Marta where the wealthy come to stay. So you are more than getting your money's worth at these rates.

A colourful little hostel with a relaxed atmosphere and really friendly staff and other guests. My friend and I had a great time and actually preferred hanging out at the hostel in the evening than in Rodadero itself!

The beds are comfy, the bathrooms clean and the food and drinks are well priced (2500 COP for a beer) -and there's hammocks and a hot tub to relax in. There's even a big selection of films to watch if you don't feel like doing much, or if you're preparing for the Lost City trek the next day.

Definitely worth staying at! This is one of the best places I've stayed in a long time.

i stayed at casa del ritmo for 3 nights, and i hope the rest of the hostels i'll be staying in for my 6 month trip will be as good as this one. Gina and Camillo give the place a great atmosphere playing good music and dancing round all day and always willing to help or give advice about the local areas. The room had plenty of space, the chill out bit was really cosy and the veggie food was great, and the mojitos were the best!!

Hi All,

My shout out for "Casa Del Ritmo". I recently landed in Colombia and was unable to reach my orginal destination. I made the rash "Head to the beach" descion and the next day I found myself in Santa Marta at the doorstep of Casa De Ritmo.

From the moment I entered Gina and Ebon made me feel at home. My Spanish isnt that great so when I revereted to English they didnt miss a beat. The atmosphere is very chill with a bright beach vibe. Rooms are clean and simple. I really enjoyed the hostels music selection and over all atmosphere. People from Belgium, Argentina, Colombia, states and more.

Casa Ritmo is about 10 minutes walk from the main beach. I walked all times of day and at night untill 10pm without issue. I really enjoyed the Baynatos (Strolling beach musicians), they are similar to mariaches but with a much more Carribean/Colombian vibe. It is easy to eat inexpensively, buy fruit and veggies from local vendors. I recommend watching the coconut dudes climb the trees on the main beach. They will sell you a coco they just picked! You can also buy fresh fish from the fisherman at the beggining of the beach closest to Casa Del Ritmo.

Comfortable and Friendly.


Om Shanti,

Jiin

Excellent Hostel! Has an excellent hosts and atmosphere! You will feel with friends not in a hostel. It has a small pool, perfect to chill after going to the beach. The food and the drinks are top quality, as good as a top 5 restaurant. Had a blast thank you very much.

Room Tip: dorms are excelent

I hadn't ever really stayed at a hostal before and thought they were gross places for flea ridden travelers. I was happily surprised and comfortable. It was pretty basic, but quaint, clean and the owner was very hospitable. I stayed the first night in a double bed room- just in front of the little whirlpool and enjoyed stable wifi movie watching :)
I then moved upstairs to a six bed room and was just fine- though wifi wasn't stable up there. This is fairly close to the beach, supermarket and other stores. Bus transportation into the center is easy also. They have a computer there in the eating area that you can use if you ask nicely too. Oh and they store your valuables behind the desk.

I recommend!
