I thought that this hostel was great. I thought that this was a great place to come back to after going to Parque Tayrona and hiking the Ciudad Perdida. I was traveling with my mom and we stayed in the Pink Room with two beds. Our room was spacious and had a nice bathroom. The water pressure was good. There wasn't any hot water, but honestly, in Santa Marta there really is no need for it.

The location of La Villana is great. It's close to restaurants and some of the squares in the city center. Really close to a Presto!! It also has a nice bar and jacuzzi to relax in if you just want to stay at the hostel. The ambiance for both the jacuzzi and charming (nor are they areas that get very loud).

The hostel is small enough that it doesn't get overly crowded but there are still opportunities to meet other people. While I was there I met plenty of cool people. Some of the coolest people are the staff, especially Felipe! They are very friendly and helpful.

I would recommend this hostel over and over again!

Stayed there for four nights when in Santa Marta and absolutely loved it. The place is modern and perfectly clean, the room had AC and was nicely made. The hostel has the best staff I have ever met in a hostel, everyone was really helpful, friendly and charming. It is in the centre of Santa Marta and you can walk everywhere and if you feel like staying in the hostel the jacuzzi and the TV with Netflix and Xbox make sure that one gets never bored. I would definitely go there again.

This place is, quite literally, the loveliest place I've stayed in! It's beautifully clean, well located and has a gorgeous hot tub surrounded by trees! Our dorm was spacious, well laid out and had solid comfy beds with delicious A/C. The staff could not have been nicer. From Maria, the manager, we got nothing but the most helpful and considerate service. Everyone from the cleaners, night watchman, breakfast lady to the reception and bar staff were super friendly, genuine and welcoming! I loved this place - it felt like home. Evie

We booked a double ensuite, and it was excellent. Airco, a fan, spacious and a beautifull bathroom! The staff is more than helpfull and the included breakfast was delicious. Plus gaming, computers, a bar and a small pool, what more can you possibly need? Location is pefect, around the corner starts all Santa Marta's nightlife. Great choice!!
