“Great place to stay in Rodadero”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013

A really nice place to stay.
Friendly staff, always willing to help you in everything you need.
5 minutes walking from the Rodadero beach and 2 minutes from the bus stop.
We chose a room without air conditioning, it was big, fresh and clean.

In a nice chilled location Casa del Ritmo is my place to stay if in the Santa Marta area. Super friendly and helpful staff who love nothing more than to spend time talking with you, assisting you with things to do like Tayrona Parque, the Lost City and many more .
Great food and service you will love your stay with these amazing Colombians. Check out also there new hostal Playa Del Ritmo right on the coast.

I absolutely loved my time in this hostel; the place is fun and sociable, the rooms are comfortable and spacious and best of all the staff are so welcoming and hospitible they become like family. I will never forget my time here, it will be a special memory that stays with me forever. I want to come back as soon as I can!

Muchos gracias amigos por la tiempo mejor!

Of all the hostels I have slept & socialised & spend time ... all over the world...this one is on my top 5 list. And the reason why is the owners and the atmosphere. They welcome you with open arms to their hostel and their group of friends. You don't feel excluded as they take you along on their excursions and they organize game nights and they make you feel part of their world.
The great thing is that they enjoy it themselves as well and there is a personal approach and it is not a huge place run by employees.

You can decide to only see the small imperfections, but then you are missing the whole point ... the most wonderful experience that these people share with you.

Thank you for the amazing time x

I just spent one night in this hostel but very much enjoyed my time there. I stayed in a nice and big single room with A/C. Camilo and Gina who run this place give everybody a very warm welcome and make you feel like a friend rather than just a paying guest. It´s a perfect place for socialising as well (which means that nights can be a bit noisy). And the rest of the staff is equally delightful.

There´s food to be had and drinks, too. I didn´t have anything there, though, but it looked nice. There is a supermarket a short walk from the hostel. The area feels perfectly safe. I would have stayed longer but because of overbooking I moved to Camilo and Gina´s beachfront hostel, Playa del Ritmo. Which is quieter and, well, at the beach.

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.
