Great place to use as a home base while stopping through and taking trips up the coast. You can store your bigger bag here which comes in handy for Tayrona. Also a good location for Santa Marta right near a popular square. Rooms are basic but have all you need, and there are multiple options for breakfast(included) on the terrace....

The location of this hostel was great. Really close to the main square where all the food and drinking places are. We had a bad experience of this hostel. On checking in the receptionist was more interested in watching YouTube or FB than servicing us. He didn't give us the free towels included, didn't tell us when breakfast was served...

Good location near sea front, park de Los novios, cathedral and restaurants. Nice roof terrace, which could be smarter with some big green plants, but has good views, hammocks and is where you have the straightforward breakfast. Rooms clean with comfortable beds/linen, but furnishings and finish pretty basic. Shower was just a spout rather than proper shower head. Staff helpful...

I only stayed one night but laundry very efficient and staff all very friendly and helpful. Private room but with real computer, rather than my silly little mobile phone, just outside. I am told the roof top bar is great in the evenings but I managed to get to sleep through what I saw as "noise"! A good bit cheaper...

Awesome place to stay in Santa Marta. I was looking for a more chill and less party place and this place was a great option. The dorm is very nice with your own personal little fan. The pool is nice too, it's a great place to hang out when Santa Marta is too hot. It's located in a nice safe...

We've been staying in cheaper, nicer hostels with more attentive staff. The room was okay and cleanish. Bit small, but no real complaints. Shower was a one pipe affair, and there's no soap etc provided. Breakfast was included but poor (a small bowl of frosties, and a thin slice of fruit). There were only a few small tables so we...

Good for backpackers. The rooms are correct adn clean. There is a bar with beer at good price and a tiny poolfor refreshing if the day is hot. They also have a rooftop where breakfast is served. You can leave your staff there if you are walking to Ciudad Perdida, we did it and there was no problem nor any...

Jackie's hostel iis a very nice environment and it is located in the very center of Santa Marta. The road is quite safe, it is very close to the beach and the Parque de los Novios (where you can find many bars), and there is a suoermarket nearby.
