my second private room had a wonderful a/c that was so amazing after being out in a humid santa marta all day. i didn't indulge in the facility pools but they looked quite relaxing. the breakfast on the roof (included for the private rooms, nominal otherwise i think) was consistent and the atmosphere was relaxing. the staff was very friendly and helpful, even during peak hours. great stay!
Everything g you could want, even your own 'private' bed in a dorm with its own light etc. Pool and social/bar areas good with plenty of different options. Everything always clean. Live music for an hour or so in the bar quite often. Low key in that it isn't a party hostel but lots going on. Staff were out of their way helpful in sorting out a flight problem for me. All excellent.
Nothing negative except the shower in my dorm was just a trickle which didn't cause me a problem at all.
Beautiful building that had 2 pools and a rooftop deck with the views around Santa Marta that were luxurious. The staff were extremely friendly and the live music was fantastic. Also it was close to the marketplace and several restaurants in town. We kept talking about how we didn't want to leave.
Wasn't close to any beaches where you'd want to swim.
Good location, 2 swimming pools, good bar service, decent breakfast included if you stay in a private room, good security, travel desk available
The poolside furniture is all broken and in need of replacement, staff friendly, other travelers a bit standoffish, book exchange virtually non-existent, travel desk not very helpful for solo travelers -- why don't they have a public sign up sheet so those without a travel companion can see if others are interested in the same things as minimum 2 people needed for most outings.
Set in a beautiful building but it was expensive to stay here considering the facilities were in need of repair. The roof top terrace is nice. The beds are comfortable and having curtains around each bed gives you privacy. The 12 bed dorm is better than the 4 bed dorm in terms of space. Breakfast was decent.
I stayed in three different rooms. The twin room was good, the 4 bed dorm was cramped with a poor shower and blocked sink and the 12 bed dorm had two showers and a toilet to which the lock was broken. The sinks and showers were blocked throughout the hostel.
Location, room, last floor,
the neighbourhood, the noisy evenings, the clealiness of te swiming pool,
Naughty and annoying reception lady. In several cases I had to contact the boss to solve a problem. I have to say, that the boss was really friendly and helpful. But the reception lady was unable to commit herself to a customer oriented behaviour.
everyone goes on about brisa loca (which has an amazing bar / atmosphere) but the truth is you don't actually want to stay there - just go in the evening for the bar, it's open to all! masaya (which is literally round the corner) is by far the best hostel in santa marta - clean, fabulous pool (the one in brisa loca is just a dip pond), amazing roof top terrace, friendly staff, and super clean. it also has one of the best dorms ive ever seen - yes it's a shared room, but each bed has its own curtain, light and plug, with storage under the bed, so you get your privacy and your own space. and its one of the very few hostels in santa marta with air conditioning (A MUST IN THE SUMMER - NOT JOKING)
probably it's a bit quiet / relaxed for some travellers. but like i said if you're looking for a party, you can just go down the road to brisa loca bar. the masaya is far far nicer during the day
The building is beautiful well adapted for a hostel with good style
Difficult to deal with the staff and manager full of excuses because the wi-fi didn't work and problems with the ac And safe in my room with no solutions, breakfast always the same eggs,tost, juice and coffee
Well located in the heart of Santa Marta Nice and helpful people at the réception desk The Terrace with the view on the city
The noise of the billiards above room 11
It is located at the center of the city... close to the port, the cathedral, etc. safe during the day. Easy to find transportation to El Rodadero, Taganga and Tayrona Park. The rooms are great, big, nice restroom, two pools, kitchen, activities to do at the hostel.
Not safe at night. No restaurants close or convenience stores open late.
This hostel was a great surprise for us. Great value for money. Good location, clean beds and bathroom. We loved the common areas, specially the kitchen where we prepared some food. The staff are really helpful and they organize lots of activities to get to know more about the city/country and people staying at the hostel. I will recommend it to my friends if they need to stay in Sta Marta.
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!
