Not much of a hostel, more like a resort. The inhouse restaurant is good and the pool is a social area for making new friends. The staff in the reception wasn't always attentive, but kitchen & cleaningstaff always greeted you with a happy smile.

My stay at Dreamer Hostel in Palomino was perfect. Very nice sitting area by the clean pool and just steps to the nice, sandy beach. The restaurant was excellent and great options were available. I loved their pizza and pastas as well as the ceviche. Dreamer's staff is very accommodating and always there to help with any kind of questions....

I supposed to stay in Dreamer Hostel for 3 nights, I stayed 3 weeks. The unique atmosphere is perfect to socialize with new guests, especially if you are a lonely traveller. The swimming pool is clean and wide, the rooms are spacious, clean and safe with a private bathroom inside the dorms as well. The staff is really friendly and...

Dreamers is your standard hostel - it has all the amenities you need (swimming pool, pool table, massages, kitchen, etc.) a chill bar, and is located a short walk to the beach. You can't go wrong here. For those seeking a more cultural, quirky, community-oriented or off-the-beaten path place, however, I would recommend elsewhere.

I visited las Christmas with my family and we had such an amazing time, staff were super lovely, food was amazing, rooms were super clean and big. Palimino área is great to explore and appreciate different Colombian cultures, close to the Tairona and Ciudad perdida. I would recommend it and we definitely comeback

Super nice hostel for just laying by the pool or the beach (only 5 min walking). Clean in the room but the bathroom was not so fresh. Good restaurant! Specially the smoothies that was one liter of a good fruity milkshake for like 2 dollars. The staff was kind do bad. They were slow and not service minded. Other than...

The dreamer in Palomino is a nice hostel with a good vibe and large pool in a beautiful garden. I booked 5 nights, 65.000 pesos each, which is a bit overpriced if you look at the quality of the dorms. Unfortunately I had the experience of BEDBUGS the first two nights. My body (including face!) was covered with bites and...

Dear Petra, I read your comment and it left me a bitter taste in the mouth,actually I was very surprised reading your words. I personally attended you when you told us your situation, you personally told me that you came from camping in the mountains the day before and when you gave me your backpack, so we can wash it,...

This is an average place and over priced for what it is considering you can get an very hotel in Cartagena for similar price. No hot water cold showers and beds uncomfortable. Breakfast was extremely poor. Buffet offering. The general level of service poor and reflection of the fact that most of the staff seem to be volunteers. Although a...

They do not change the bedding between guests! The staff were rushing around loads and all seemed really stressed and seemed to work very long hours. We stayed here in high season and paid a lot for a hostel but it did feel like a little resort. We were in a 8 bed dorm room. It was great they had...

Dear Traveler, With regret we read your comments regarding your stay with us at the Dreamer Palomino. Honestly the comment doesnt correspond with reality.
