Want to stay in an ex Cartel house?

The Australian run Drop Bear Hostel is located in the most infamous cartel house of Santa Marta and in the most exclusive suburb, El Jardin. Come see the secrets of the house, hidden rooms, secret coded tiles, caletas (hiding spaces) and underground tunnels!

The Drop Bear Hostel is perfectly placed for travellers, close to the city centre, museums and transport to Tayrona, Taganga and Minca. We can also organise Lost City Treks and Scuba Licences.

Located over 2000m2 there is plenty of room to chill out and relax. Sip a cocktail in the giant pool or in the authentic 80's cartel bar where Pablo Escobar once drunk with his buddies. Kick back in the stadium cinema room or cook up a storm in the huge kitchen.

Join us for our Sunday BBQ's and Movie nights in our Pool Cinema. It's easy to stay at the Drop Bear and never leave. The Hostel is spacious, clean and kept cool by the Santa Marta breeze (La Brisa Loca) that rolls of the Sierra Nevada.



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 COP
