    Good location near a huge shopping mall (with food court!) and Simon Bolivar's Museum. A well-run hostel with very pleasant bar area. The rooms have character, each being named and themed after a country - we had Ireland, a private double with fan. The shared bathrooms are OK.
    The buffet breakfast is tasty and good value, the other meals from the restaurant seem a bit over-priced. Staff are friendly and very patient. We enjoyed day trips through the hostel to Minca and Bahia Concha.

    great value for money, this is a chilled hostel with EVERYTHING you need. The rooms are spacious and away from the bar. At night, I barely heard the people drinking and partying up late. Its not a party hostel, but social. The outdoor kitchen and common area is great to make new friends, the internet is great and most of the staff friendly! The Italian restaurant is fab on site and Exito supermarket 3 block away if you want to cook. I have not a complaint about the dreamer. A better place to get to Parque Tayrona and Taganga... Loved it here!

    Santa Marta is where Colombians go when they want sun on their backs, sand under their feet and rum in their glasses. It has a famous colonial past as one of the continent's oldest cities, and is where Simon Bolivar died after a heroic attempt to make Latin America one united republic.

    We visited the hacienda where Bolivar spent his last …

    Waking up in my hammock I can't believe I slept here out in the open, no covers a very warm breeze and a view of the beach only interrupted by the occasional horse walking past, a few scattered tents and coconut trees... Tyrona National Park, we made it. Getting to Tayrona is not simply a matter of showing up and entering. It was quite the journey …

    We got a bus from Cartagena to Santa Marta via a company called Marsol, it was really simple as the company arranges a hotel pick up. We got picked up from Hotel San Roque, it should be a straightforward 3 hour journey, but it took longer. It was a small little bus which had about 15 backpackers on before us. Luckily we could get a seat at the back …

    We headed out to Santa Marta in search of a primo beach for some well earned R&R. Our accommodation was voted the best hostel in Colombia for the year and lived up to the hype. It had really helpful staff, good rooms and facilities, and an awesome swimming pool.

    They also organised daily tours to a bunch of beaches around Santa …

    "The longest journey begins with a single step, not with a turn of the ignition key. That's the best thing about a walking, the journey itself. It doesn't much matter whether you get where your going or not. You'll get there anyway. Every good hike brings you eventually back home. Right where you started."
