Masaya Hostel Santa Marta
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 22, 2013

The Masaya in Santa Marta is brand new and lovely. Perfectly located in the heart of the city, it is in a beautiful house and has great amenities. Confortable and practical dorms (although the 6 bed dorm was tiny), nice and clean bathrooms, 2 swimming pools, fully equipped kitchen, huge TV room, places to relax and cutural activities. I had great stay and can't wait until they open new places around Colombia or South America. Staff is very firendly, Mojitos delicious and breakfast amazing. There was a weird smell in my room but I think it was new wood.

Room Tip: Ask for one with air conditionning, as it can get really really hot!

I was there with some friends just for one nigth but i ve would loved stay there at least one week; it s one of the best places i ever stayed..it s in the historic center of Santa Marta in a beautiful colonial house. Every nigth there is a cultural event and the food is really good. You can go with your family or in couple and stay quite in relax or also go with friends and life a good enviroment on the roof. the staff is friendly and the two swiming pool are just perfect to rest after a good trek in Tayrona and Ciudad Perdida

Seriously, this hostal make you feel you're in an high quality resort Hotel but with the enormous difference that it is held by some of your old time friends.
You can plug your own music in every common room. The terrace is just incredible with the kitchen an the jacuzzi swimming pool, wich was unfortunately not in use yet when we where there. But there're all excused thought they welcome us a couple of days before the official openning.
