Liked: I loved the location. It was near by to many banks, food, and blocks away from the local beach. I stayed here for about 4 nights and in the middle I took off for Parque Tayrona. The hostel allowed me to leave my bags in the storage room, which was awesome! I loved my first couple nights, but after coming back from the park I was exhausted and just wanted some quiet. If you are looking for some peace and quiet this is not the place for you, they play music until about 2 or 3 in the morning and there is always something going on. It is a great place to start of your adventure in the surrounding area of Santa Marta and the hostel itself is beautiful. If you want to have a good time and don't plan on sleeping much, this is the place for you!

Disliked: The noise level late at night is really loud, but people told me about this before hand, so I was well informed.

Disliked: The pool was inside and in the shade. It is a big hostel full of lots of young people partying which will suit some people but not everyone.

Liked: The guys were really friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was good. On site bar had good food and had a good vibe. Good location.

Disliked: Avoid room 101 as the entrance to a loft room is gained through this room and can get pretty noisy. Pretty noisy all round mainly due to the bar but not so bad if you were up there amonst it.

Liked: Although at first it seems like a bigger hostel, the constant involvement of the owners and the excellent customer service give it the feel of a more intimate experience. Especially John, Jonathan and Isabella from reception. The Restaurant/Bar had excellent food and service, also the mexican restaurant next door had the best mexican food I had had in Colombia... all at reasonable prices. Sure, you can get your party on at this hostel, but it is large enough that you can also chill out if you aren't feeling the fiesta that particular night. Its great for both.. awesome for making new friends. Also, Santa Marta as a city itself is a cool destination. I didn't see many other gringos out on the streets, which enabled me to strike up conversations with the locals, most of whom were extremely friendly. gotta check this place out.

Disliked: nada.

Liked: The pool area is amazing and there is a nice bar upstairs!

Disliked: The bar closes at 12 ish, which is fine, but after that time you can't even buy a bottle of water! The breakfast is extra... and kind of expensive.
