Hospederia Casa Familiar

Reviewed 1 August 2014

My boyfriend and I stayed at this Hostel for 2 nights. The room was comfortable and they have a nice hammock area on the roof where you can relax. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A lot of travelers head to Tayronna from Santa Marta for a few nights then return to Santa Marta. If you have a large bag they will lock it up for you in the closet until you return so you don't have to haul it around with you. There is also an excellent restaurant right across the street. If you eat there tell Charlie that Anna and Jared say hi, and can now pronounce "para llavar." When we returned to Santa Marta from Tayronna we spend another two nights here and were once again pleased with the service and the room. It is also very close to the beach and the price is very cheap.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room that had a window that opened up onto the roof. One night a couple of people we...

It is a very good Price Vs Quality place. Rooms are clean, the staff is very friendly and willing to help. The rooms are not very spetial but they are ok, no surprises, no bed bugs, no problems with the water. The kitchen is nice and well equipped although a bit small for the size of the place. Wi-fi is decent but it only works in the ground level, thats not to much of a problem as they have tables, chairs and even some sofas for you to go with your device and even a couple of laptops you can borrow if you need to use internet.

The place has a huge terrace in the 2nd floor with hammocks, tables, toilets, a boxing bag and a crazy dog. Ideal to have some Rum and hang around with friends in a chilled way, as long as the winds allow it.

Rooms are nice, the price is cheap, and the family running the place are all very helpful and accommodating. Loved to sit on the roof and have a beer just watching life in the side streets. Recommended.

I was extremely disappointed with my stay at this hostel. Our room was ok, extremely basic. The single beds were tiny in our twin room. The staff were not very helpful and overcharged us by one night citing that we had an early check in, even though charging a full extra night wasn't agreed. Check in is apparently 8am and we arrived at 6am. We really wish they could have told us that they were going to do this at the time, we are in a budget and would have waited the 2 hours.

The staff were generally friendly and helpful. Internet worked ok in our room, but don't expect it. The room was reasonable priced, room small and private bathroom tiny. The roof terrace and hammock terrace were lovely. It's not a palace, but considering the prices some of the hostels were charging for private rooms, this was great.

Its was a pretty good hostel, rooms were clean and have the necessary things for a backpacker. It is in the center of santa marta meaning there is a lot of restauranta and stuff near it. Prices are pretty affordable.. Cheap!!

Stayed for 2 nights. The owners are lovely, don't speak much English but were very patient with my bad Spanish and happy to help in anyway. They gave us good advice for our stay.
Rooms are basic and old but ok. Courtyard is nice, kitchen is ok, again basic and old but functional.
Location is not the best in my opinion. We were not comfortable in the area after dark. Maybe nearer the cathedral is better.
Value for money is great.
