Liked: We had a great time at The Dreamer, the pool table is good, the bar is cheap and the common areas are great for meeting people. They balance the social side with no noise after midnight so you can party and meet people but still get some sleep.The air con rooms were a godsend and the pool is beautiful in the heat! I need to say a special mention to the staff who were incredible. My girlfriend and I both got Dengue fever and the staff provided us with free soup, helped with translation at the hospital and even got one of their family doctors in to check us over.The food was fairly good and there is a big mall, supermarket and cinema just 5 safe minutes walk from the hostel.All in all a great hostel and you shouldn't need to consider anywhere else!

Disliked: The shared showers were missing showerheads and this is a small problem that could be fixed easily. They do have good pressure though.

Liked: Great atmosphere created here. The staff were really good and the food in the restaurant is great. Also stayed in their sister property in Palomino which was fantastic! Great pools in both properties!

Disliked: The showers are really poor. A dribble of cold water. This is disappointing especially when many people here have just come back from the Ciudad Perdida trek and would really welcome a good shower. It's also a little far out from Santa Marta city but this was not something that bothered me!

Liked: Dreamer Hostel is absolutly the best place to stay in Santa Marta. The reception and the volunteer are extremely helpful and friendly and go out of their way to create a warm and fun environment in which people make friends instantly. If you want to meet new people, see a more authentic Santa Marta and experience Columbia culture then Dreamer Hostel is the place for you

Liked: Great hostel, love the pool and the relaxed space the hostel creates. Good location at the crossroads of everything - not in Santa Marta centro, but equal distance from it, Taganga and right on the road to easily get to Tayrona, Palomino or places east along the coast.

Liked: We liked the atmosphere there, it was a mix of backpackers and couples. Location is fine for Tayrona, they offer tours and everything is very well-kept.

Disliked: Wi-Fi didn't work after heavy rainfalls, but that was not the hostel's fault.
