My favorite hostel in Colombia! Very relaxing, beautiful setting, and friendly staff and fellow travelers alike. Would (and did) recommend this place to many!
LOVED this hostel! Okay, so the stairs up sucked... but once there it's totally worth it. We loved that they have no wifi so everyone talks, reads, takes photos, enjoys the view, instead of being glued to their phones. The meals were awesome and it was fun having group meals. The staff was also great. We ended up staying for a 4th night - there was lots to do with hiking, waterfalls, etc, but we loved just chilling and reading on the hammocks.
Evening meal very high quality. Something a little different than rice / arepa and meat and very tasty too. Hats off to the chef. Staff very willing to help organise activities (for myself and overheard for others too).
Casa Loma is quite beauitful! It could benefit from proper mosquito nets in the dorms - I got eaten alive at night! and better coffee - there are coffee farms right there, why am I paying for Instant coffee?! It's a work in progress.
We loved Casa Loma! We even booked 2 nights extra! It's relaxing, charming, beautiful and has the best food we've had in the Sta Marta region by a mile (cooked either by the owner or volunteers with cooking skills, and it's very well priced). We stayed in 3 different rooms and if you're a couple, stay at the Mirador room (you get your own balcony overlooking the sunset). There's no kitchen but you can use the fridge, and no wifi. The steps leading up are tiring so pack light. Great experience!!
