      Hostels are a great way to meet people

      Amazing people and service! Helped us book a sailboat tour to a private beach in the park. Had a salsa dancing lesson, which led to a guided Santa Marta night life experience with a local Colombian. The motor bikes are the most exciting way to get around the city!

      Great combo hostel/hotel

      Great central location with helpful staff and exciting nightly planned activities for guests. Two pools and a lively game/lounge rooftop. Beautiful city views and accomondations. They will also help plan city excursions as well.

      Great hostel in the center of town!

      This hostel had the vibe of a high end hotel! Our private room was big and clean, and the bed was super comfortable. The pools were cool and clean, and the rooftop bar was a great place to hang out and have a beer or a cocktail in the evenings and watch the sun set over the town. We liked it so much the first night we were there that we came back for more!

    • 6.0.Good

      This property was pretty underwhelming. It was clean with beautiful architecture but that’s about it. The indoor pool was A clean good sized dip pool. The roof top pool was the opposite filthy and even smaller. The staff were quite nice and helpful which made a difference. The food and bar is ok. Drinks are a little on the pricey side and the food was fine but nothing The location was OK, central Santa Marta for sure but kind of the dodgy end of a street. I never felt unsafe but the area was a little funny (not in a good way) with interesting characters constantly floating about day or night. I’ve been told this is one of the best hostels in Santa Marta. I only stayed here during my time so I can’t compare but if that’s the case than I guess I was lucky - but I did expect more from my overall experience here.

      Great Hostel in the center of it all.

      Stayed here in a dorm room of 4, then later in a private room. Both were very nice. The Hostel has 2 pools, one on the main level and one on the 3rd floor where their is also a bar. I really enjoyed the experience at this hostel apart from the breakfast, which I found extremely underwhelming. The fresh fruit was amazing, however the egg's were prepared in one big batch and no choice, only scrambled. I would recommend to serve egg's to order and add more variety such as fried, poached, omelette, etc. The Masaya Hostel Is located in Centro market area.

      Extremely nice boutique hostel. Very good location in Santa Marta (a few blocks from the main plazas and restaurants). Large themed bedrooms (ours was 'Shakira' - with painting of the lady herself in the room!). Nice Moroccan style building with a rooftop bar and small pool. Only slight downsides were the lack of friendliness from some of the main reception staff (not all of them or the night staff), the inability to check in until 3pm and the rather poor breakfast offering. All in all, great value stay in a modern, clean building. The organised transfer to Cartagena was also very good and much more comfortable and time efficient than taking the bus.
