Great hostel. Stayed there for what seemed a lifetime. The bar staff are very good. Charlie and pat aka the hat make some mean daiquiris. Although pat the hat isn't so good at pool no either is Charlie. But you can't expect everything from daiquiri specialists. Food is very nice and tasty. The chef is very friendly and consistently makes...

A really nice hostel with great and friendly staff! Very good welcome with clear explanations, they really take the time for every single guest! The rooms were clean and airconditioned and so were the shared bathrooms and other facilities. The food is great, although a bit to expensive for my budget to eat there every night, but there is a...

This place is a typical hostel trap; you get in and probably won´t leave. I stayed here twice, both times a few days more than I had planned! The pool is awesome and as the rooms and bar are built around it, it is a great social place, easy to meet other travelers. The food is typical gringo food, but...

This has been hands down one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. Location in Santa Marta is fine, people went out into town and were able to get about. They can set up tours and the amenities that it offers are extensive. The pool is awesome and they have pool volleyball some nights, a nice bar, pool...

I stayed at the dreamer for a few nights. They were unbelievably helpful with booking flights, printing boarding cards and figuring out day trips on public transport. The rooms were clean. No Complaints. Most of all they let us spend the day there in between a night in Minca and our flight at 10pm to Medellin. Not kidding ... THE...

I spent many days at the Dreamer, often wanting to leave to do stuff in Santa Marta and Taganga, but I felt so comfortable that it was hard to leave! I stayed both in a private room and in dorms. They are both excellent. The atmosphere in the hostel is great - very easy to meet new people and make...

I spent 2 nights at the Dreamer hostel and I was very pleased. The place is clean, the pool is pretty big, the food was good. But more importantly for me, the staff was extremely nice, caring, and fun! They provided very good insight on what to do, and were always helpful. Will definitely come back when I am in...

The dreamers is a bit far from the city, but there is not much to do in Santa Marta anyway. It is a cool place with a party vibe but also allows you to chill out in the hammock next to the pool. The staff was wonderful and they help you with anything you need and book for you all...
