Score from 19 reviews Fabulous
The location is great - in the middle of the hustle and bustle. Minutes from the bus to taganga and to tayrona. Supermarket and lots of restaurants nearby. Brand new room, very comfy. Bar closes around 11pm, so no late night music.
Despite arriving at 1pm and I could see my room was ready, I was made to wait until the 3pm check in time. The 'fully equipped' kitchen has no kettle, no microwave and no way of lighting the hob. A kettle would have been so useful! Don't come to use the pool - it was a funny brown colour.
Centrally located in historic Santa Marta. Repetitive breakfast menu but tasty. Hostel exterior is aesthetically yummy and fun. Engaging helpful staff. Safe. Secure. Near lots of restaurant and nightlife options. Most staff speak English. American electrical outlets. No adapter needed for newer dual voltage electronics. Group activities solicited. On site travel agency for half and full day excursions. Live music Saturday! Great a/C. Ceiling fan.
Outside booze not allowed. Non-registered guests can't be on premises after 10:30 pm. All private rooms should include a fridge at mimimum. Mine didn'T. Cold water only except last day. Weak shower pressure. They call it a rain shower head - I call it a joke. Americans love great water pressure. On premises drink prices higher than surrounding premises.
Amazing house and terrace, great location
room (no. 17) was either really hot during the day or due to the A/C freezing cold at night, also very dark and cramped
Nice building good located
We booked a triple room with view but there was not even a window inside the room Unfriendly staff Pricey
The Location is really nice
Santa Marta it Self was disapointing. We werde happy about this Place. There is not reale an old Townsends.
The rooftop pool was gorgeous and there is a second pool on the main floor. The shower was lovely and hot which is a real luxury on the coast of Colombia! The travel agency located within the hostel was fantastic and set up two great tours for us at reasonable prices - one to Cabo San Juan in Parque Tayrona and the other to Minca. Highly recommended!
The bed was literally like sleeping on a rock. I have never been so uncomfortable in my life. Our air conditioning didn't work for the first 1.5 days of our 3 day stay and for the remaining days we had to go down to the front desk to request someone come up with the master remote and turn it on as they did not bother to fix our broken remote. It would then shut down in the night and we would wake up in the sweltering heat. The front desk service was not great. I speak fluent Spanish but despite the fact that I spoke only in Spanish to the girls at the counter only one of them would speak Spanish back - the other insisted on speaking English to me however spoke Spanish to my Ecuadorian husband. Apparently my physical appearance negates my fluency in Spanish entirely? The neighbourhood was quite sketchy at night (I left my purse in the room at all times). I would not stay in downtown Santa Marta again as the beaches within the city are nothing special. Would be better off staying closer to Tayrona or in Rodadero.
So worth your money!!!! Cheap dorm, but very nice rooms with private bathroom in the dorm. A beautiful roof terrace with pool, bar, hammocks, kitchen etc. Another pool downstairs aswell. Really good facilities and helpful staff. An office where you can book tours in the same building.
It's a unique offering that the guys behind the Masaya have created! The perfect balance between hotel like rooms and services (pools, daily room cleaning) and the joyful experience of a hostel (daily activities organised in and outside the hostel, rooftop bar to socialize, and the general Friendly atmosphere). If you go to santa Marta you must stay there.
- Very good value for money. - Very comfortable beds. - Great pools (rooftop and courtyard). - Decent breakfast. - Rooftop bar great for a drink at night - Free activities everyday, dancing looked fun but was too tired to take part. - Close to important places for tourists in Santa Marta. - Despite number of people was quiet enough at night. - Staff all speak excellent English (not at all common in Colombia). - Place to leave bag when going to La Ciudad Perdida
- Problem with Booking.com reservation not being found, although this was taken care of very quickly. - Check in time of 3pm is very late, although we were able to relax by the pool.
Dorms are awesome, curtains on every bunk, rooftop pool and pool table are great, expensive but cool terrace, decent kitchen, good location
Unfortunately we got bed bugs (or ticks) here and vacated after one night. Such a shame because every other aspect was perfect. Staff were very helpful in refunding our money though
This is a beautiful and modern place. Lovely rooftop pool, spacious and comfortable.
bed bugs made it difficult to get a good nights sleep, kitchen had few dishes, staff/managers hiding the bed bug issue and despite efforts to address the problem it continues. They need to close and clean up the bug problem.
It is one of a kind type of hostel, at least in Colombia. It combines affordable prices with stylish design and comfort. It was pleasent having neat bathrooms, luxurious yet practical amenities. Getting to know people from different cultures completes the perfect staying at Masaya. Thanks!
Modern, clean, great roof view, pool, breakfast
Air con was erratic, very noisy and busy street, lots of backpackers, rooms hot and airless, very little natural light
Breakfast (was included) Shower drops only Mosquitoes in the room due to proximity of the room to the pool "assistant" (male) personnel not capable or willing to help, even when explaining things in (not that a bad) spanish good room climate for sleeping not possible tiny bathroom
Bar far the best hostel I've stayed at in terms of comfort, very good beds. Also there's a good atmosphere at the hostel. They also have a desk where they can organize day trips for you.
Can't complain about much except the wifi wasn't the best but still not a major issue.
Great location in the center of town. Friendly staff. Confortable rooms.
Breakfast is a little light!
Excellent ratio quality price. Good confort. Staff amability. Location: Downtown.
Staff was extremely helpful and awesome. I was solo and it was a great place to hang out and meet people.
Wifi didn't work well on top floor
The building is very beautiful, with good rooms and a nice terrace with a charming swimming pool.
The price for the rooms could be more adequate for the location in the city. The wifi was not working properly.
The staff is mostly European therefore communication is not a problem at all. They are happy to explain anything you need and are really friendly. They also offer 10% discount in the restaurant next door (which btw it's run by the same Owner and the food is amazing. Prices are normal for Europeans but not for cheap for locals )
I am Colombian and went with my bf who is from Germany. I think the Colombian atmosphere is totally missing. It doesn't feel the Colombian vibe at all and if that's what you are looking for then I would recommend to go somewhere else.
-rooftop bar and terrace -pools -travel agency in the front -advices for dinner and night out on the wall - curtains in the dorms - bathroom in the 4persons dorm -friendly staff
- 4 persons dorm seemed to be a 5 persons with an 'emergency bed', so call it a 5 persons.. - dorm was too small for 5 sleeping and some smelly travellers. not many space for backpack. - luggage store to small for a big backpack.
cleanliness location staff
Very convenient location, new and appealing establishment, flexible staff.
Great hostle, good service, nice setting, great interior.
