I had a great experience working at Calle11. The hostel has a super nice and quiet location, staff is friendly and fun, and the place itself has a great vibe. Work is super chill, tasks are simple, and the schedule is well distributed among the volunteers. You get to travel and meet a lot of places nearby Santa Marta on your days off, so that's a huge plus.
I'd and I do recommend Calle11 to everyone cause I fell in love with the place and people there.



I had a great time in this hostel! Well that wasn’t a lot of work to do bc of the low-season but I am pretty sure, when it gets full, it’s gonna be way better as it already is! The staff were super nice and i felt welcome! It’s a nice place to work, to meet new people, chill at the pool and to learn making delicious juices and drinks! and as soon as you have 2 days off, you have a lot of opportunities to visit different places around Santa Marta! If you like animals: loki and felix are waiting for you :)
So thanks a lot brock and simon!



It was a really good experience. The staff; Brock, Simon, Jessica, Mari, Orista, Rosa they make u feeling as part of the family.

I was there in a low season (Sep and a part of Oct) we didn't have a lot job at the bar but I could do others interested things like some marketing posters for the bar and the restaurant.

The hostel is so beautiful, if u like pics u will find a lot of cool spots.

Calle 11 hostel is like a bridge to know a lot of places.

Its environment is perfect u find fun and calm everything there.

I will definitely come back.



Volunteering at Calle 11 was just a blast, both the staff as well as the other hosts are very nice and it felt like a home staying at the hostel. The work at the bar is lots of fun and easy to learn. In case you feel very motivated you can also experiment on new drinks or activites.
An old cartel house with a nice pool and white facades the hostel looks good from lots of different angles. It's both awesome for hanging out and meeting people, as well as using it as a base for day or multipe day trips to the surrounding nature.



Amazing stay at calle11 hostel, I met such wonderful people, guests as well as staff, I would renew the experience without any doubt ! Amazing vibes, work, place, activities and people :)
