Very good hostel, they have lockers in the rooms and a pool which is what you want as it is so hot! A good bar and common area, so it is easy to meet people if you are travelling alone! Also good food


The 4 bed dorm had fans, but it was even very hot during the night.


Staff were very helpful! Great breakfast! Best so far after travelling for four months.


nice friendly staff, clean, nice pool, delicious food in restaurant, good value, not too bad location


great staff and nice cosy rooms. would definately stay again


Hostel was very clean, affordable, staff helpful and food nice. Although a little bit back from the main beach it was still only a short walk.


Very nice hostel. Nice atmosphere, colourful hostel. On a 7 minute walk to the beach and boulevard. Helpful staff, good kitchen for breakfast and dinner. Simple rooms, but suitable. Internet wasn't working all the time, had to ask to reset the router several times.


The hostel is beautiful and set around a pool, but most of the rooms are private rooms so it is not necessarily the best place to meet people. Hostel is also located quite a few blocks from the heart of Taganga. It does not take long to walk, but at night it definitely is not the safest to walk to on your own.


Divanga is one of two hostels I stayed in during my time in Taganga. Divanga is actually two different facilities, run by the same owners, separated by about a four or five minute walk. The one farther up the street is the higher end of the two. The private rooms are exceptional. They are clean and well taken care of. Water, like everywhere else in Taganga is a hit and miss proposition; as is Internet. It's not the hostels fault, it's just the way the overall system operates. Staff is great.


Divanga is Tu casa a Taganga, and thats true. We've shortly became friends with stuff and other travelers. Manager of place - Lucy is very nice and along with othersdo everything to help her guest. Nice bar with billiard and pool. Nice travel info center. We didn't consider any other place when we came back to Taganga


We were original booked to spend only 2 nights at the Divanga but ended up staying for almost a week! We ended up doing a 3 day scuba course in Taganga and Divanga offered the perfect base during our time there. The included breakfasts were good, the swimming pool was fantastic and the restaurant offered very good food. Finally what really made Divanga stand out was the owner and the staff, they are all very friendly and always willing to help. Thanks for a great stay!

This is a review for the main hostel and not the apartment as there was a problem with the kitchen and they moved us straight into the main building, Lucy the owner is lovely and really friendly and helpful as are all the staff, we booked for 1 night ended up staying a week while we did a diving course with reef shepherd who we also recommend.
