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, 1 min from big cheap supermarket and other restaurants. Staff is so helpful and friendly. I felt at home. Rooms have so much space, are clean, pretty...Breakfast is basic but good and you can eat as much as you want. Kitchen is also more than enough for a traveller. I saw the guest list and most of us were professionals. I like this, too. No drugs or crazy behavior allowed. Water was hot enough...it is hot in Santa Marta. I will come back.

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 each bed in the dorm has it's own smaller fan above the headboard but for $23000COP you can't really complain. Wifi patchy in rooms but fine in the lounge area. Clean bathrooms and beds and new sheets each day. Had a really nice stay for 4nights.

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.

This is the second time I've stayed here. After doing the Lost City Trek, we needed some cocktails, good food and just to put our feet up. We managed to do all three, plus one of the staff does massage, so we paid a little extra for that, which was well worth it.

We also went to Playa del Ritmo for the day. It's a private beach attached to the sister hostel, so much quieter and more chilled out than the other beaches in Santa Marta.

Room Tip: Playa del Ritmo is a tiny bit more expensive than Casa del Ritmo (still a decent price) but is right...

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.
