This hotel is cheap - with a room quality to match

Reviewed 4 january, 2016

The location of this cheap hotel is fine - close to Santa Marta's waterfront. However, for a few dollars more, you should be able to find a better solution in the same area. Although the service at the front desk is OK (English may or may not be spoken), don't expect too much of the rooms though. Rooms are very basic, but do come with a (noisy) air condition. However, it seems that the shower drains in most of the rooms are clogged, which within minutes will make the water spill onto the bathroom floor and soon after into the room itself. Showers are cold water only. No in-room safe, no hangers, no amenities... as mentioned, basic! Often you will find only one towel in a 2 person room, so make sure to check when you check in. Some rooms will have a cockroach or two, but that is unavoidable in this tropical climate. Rooms come with a small CRT TV.

The hotel is 100 mts from the beach and really close to the main square. "Plaza de los Novios" which is great for the night is also nearby. Rooms are a bit small, toilettes as well. Employees are really helpful! The breakfast is in the restaurant nearby, it is not good at all even though the lady there is terrible kind.

Very pleased with the Staff at the hotel

Well, this is a Hostal for the infraestructure you have there, for the ammenities inside the room. This is very basic. thats what here in peru we consider a hostal. But i was very surprised about the staff at the hotel. They were all very helpfull and as well always having a smile on their faces. I stayed there just for one night, and move to another hotel the 2nd 3rd and 4rd night of my stay and i was always going there to ask for information, as i said they were always pleased to help me and answer my quesions The owner of the hotel, he changed me some dollars as i arrived late i didn´t have the option to go and change it in banks. he came from another place and gave a very reasonable exchange rate. breakfast is served right next door and the restaurant belongs to his brother. Seems like is family business and i think that is why they were all nice. They have a very friendly driver working with them. His name is Alan and his phone number for any service you want in town you can ask it at the hotel

Great for the price

I stayed in this hostal for one night after moving from a place that was twice the cost. This place was easily more comfortable and represents excellent value for money in Santa Marta, albeit it is a very expensive place by Colombian standards. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Bed was good, bathroom was adequate and the internet works well on every floor. No breakfast included and no pool at this place but for the price you can't go past it from what I've seen around town. This place is only one block from the beach and one block from the nightlife so it's great. You will be assured a good night's sleep here as there are no late night bars within close range.

Great spot to explore Santa Marta and beyond

I stayed for six nights either side of doing the Lost City trek. The rooms are clean with wifi, aircon and fan, the staff are very friendly and helpful (don't speak English though), it's well located for bars and restaurants, and getting to the little beach in town for some paddling and evening strolling. It is quiet though (good or bad, depending on what you're after) and I didn't meet any other guests at all. Overall good value.
