Liked: It's a lovely place with the nice relaxed atmosphere. It's very well-located right in the centre of santa marta, a few minutes away from the beach, big supermarkets and loads of restaurants and shops. The people working at the hostel are incredibly friendly and willing to help out with anything. The beds are nice and clean, breakfast is included and youbget an amazing fresh juice upon arrival. Great place and great value for money!

Disliked: Nothing.
