Drop Bear Hostel

Carrera 21 Numero 20 36 , Barrio Jardin , Santa Marta , Colombia

Directions

FROM CARTEGENA - We recommend catching a door to door service with Marsol for $42.000. It is almost the same price as a bus from the terminal, faster and more comfortable.

BUS TERMINAL - We suggest taxing a cab, 5000 COP to the hostel. A bus is available but you first must catch a bus to the city centre then catch another to Mamatoco for $1200 COP

AIRPORT - Catch the blue airport bus to the city centre for $1200 then catch another bus from the Carrera 5 to Carrera 21 (any bus that says Mamatoco will take you past Carrera 21). Walk 5 blocks towards calle 22 and you`ll find us between calle 20 and 21. Taxis from the airport cost $25000 - 30000 COP

A lovely hostel with very friendly and helpful staff. Isabella and the others held me book tours, buses and gave me all the information I needed for my stay. Cooling off in the pool, sipping beers and chatting to other guests was fabulous. Not too many people when I was there, but still had a great atmosphere. The netflix room has lots of space, the table tennis and pool table is a nice touch, as well as a good choice menu for food. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Will be staying again!
