MUST GO! This hostel was amazing, placed at the top of the mountain about 40 min mototaxi ride from Minca. The staff was amazing, and the food was local and tasty! I did the tour of Pozo Azul and La Victoria with Diego and it was a blast, definitely would recommend it! The sunset is also unbelievable with the large hammocks to watch it on.

Overrated and expensive in my opinion. Not possible to use the kitchen and not possible to buy anything but alcohol or water in the bar. (chips and a cake was avail to). They serve meals 3 times a day. The view is good and the "hammocks" are cool but there is not much thing to do around the hostel, possible to do the tours they offer, also from any hostel in Santa Marta. Few hiking oportunities in the area and its expensive to get up there also. Good place if you love to smoke and chill.

This is more than a hostel- it's an experience! I recommend the birding tour with Marco and eating on site since the food is wonderful and supports the local community. Great staff, great atmosphere!

A great experience. Picturesque location, well worth the mission to get there! Staff helpful and friendly, feels like staying at a friend's home. Great food too, well worth paying a little extra to get the home cooked meals. Would recommend.

This hostel is very popular with young travelers who like to do drugs and only interact with other travelers. It is not a Colombian experience - it is a backpacker experience. The hostel is located quite an expensive ride away from Minca, which is a shame as Minca is a really nice town with access to many beautiful places much closer than Casa Elemento. The pool is gross. The beds are comfortable. Most importantly, don't be fooled. This is DEFINITELY not an "Eco" hostel. Bring your own water.

Epicly beautiful place, but way too many people making way too much noise to enjoy it. One of the girls at reception promised to cancel my taxi as we were asked to check out early for another group arriving and she never did. I found this out when I met the driver in town demanding money from me

Very nice place to chill out. Staff is nice. Food is very good (Also good vegetarian options). Very pretty views too. Love the bird sounds. The place is a bit worn out here and there. They could paint the dorms for example and fix the lockers on the dorms (just one was broken). But on the other hand, that is also part of the charm. I would definately recommend it to others that want to chill out and hike for a few days.

What a perfect spot to chill for a couple of days. Great reasonably priced food, staff were super friendly, slight mix up with my bed the first night but that was another travelers fault not the hostel. Do yourself a favour and check it out, the hammock speaks for itself
