Liked it, doubleroom was good value! Alot of spaces to hang around, relax and such. Good food in the restaurants although a bit pricey for backpackers. Breakfast was a bit boring considering you had to pay. But still, nice atmosphere and such


Nice and relaxed hostel on the top of a hill.


The best hostel I've stayed; in after much travelling this felt like a lush retreat in gorgeous grounds with plenty of chilling out areas and views over the whole of taganga. Its a short walk from the action but well worth it and the French chef makes a great filet mignon...The rooms are basic and the staff helped us organise trips. Great crowd staying here too, a really chilled vibe and you wake up to the sounds of nature every morning. We stayed longer than anticipated just to be here.Perfect.


It is a great place and we would definitely go there again, just for the sake of the chilled atmosphere..its takes a like walk to get to the beach, but this is totally fine! There is a great Barbecue place at the hostel, so get a fresh fish at the Little harbor and have it for dinner! It's cheap and incredibly delicious!

Overall great hostel. Friendly staff make it easy to book all kinds of activities around Taganga. Beautiful view of the bay on the seaview terrace and plenty of hammocks to lounge in. My only complaint: the dorm rooms don't have screens on the windows, giving easy access to the mosquitoes. I wasn't bit too badly, but other backpackers were eaten alive. Bring mosquito net for sleeping!

Not a very clean hostel. There are cockroaches everywhere! Besides that... the bedroom was very nice, comfortable beds, lockers which are a bit small. The bathroom was clean, and the shower fine, but it was next to the kitchen, so that was very loud, and sometimes smelled bad! Also nobody likes cockroaches in the shower/ bathroom/ bed/ kitchen etc... The kitchen is a little small, and not very well equipped, but it does the job. I recommend going into the city to Exito to do food shopping.


The hostel is set a little back from the main strip, but it doesn´t really matter. This is among the best hostels I´ve ever stayed in. The place has obviously taken a great amount of investment: rooms are spacious and have bathrooms and fans. Some rooms have a kitchenette. The hostel´s kitchen is run by a Frenchman who knows how to cook, and the food is relatively cheap. The views from the veranda are excellent. Well recommended.


Great hostel, loved all the spacious common areas, the juice bar and delicious restaurant!


Very nice hostel, nice place to relax and disconnect, the staff are very kind, the food from the restaurant, very good (the Ceviche, miam!). A bit "far", but it's alright!


Loved this place, one of the best hostels in south america. It has everythig you want and the restaurant attached to it is amazing, such good food. Definately recommend this place and its chilled vibe.


We stayed two nights in different rooms. One was close to the reception and a bit noisy on Saturday night, but the other room was much more quiet. The hostel has very nice common facilities like hammocks etc and an excellent restaurant. Biggest disappointment for us was the staff: very uninterested and slow. It took ages to get things done.


Great Hostel! Amazing atmosphere with lots of outdoor areas with tables and hammocks and chairs, chill music, rooftop hammocks overlooking the pueblito, and a VERY helpful tour/activity arranger. We ended up arranging out ciurdad perdida and parque tayrona tour through them, which saved lots of time and effort. We also ended up coming back and staying a few more nights in between trips, and they were able to accomodate our needs perfectly. Far enough from the center to have quiet nights!


Excellent hostel. Made my trip to Taganga that much better! The space is magnificent.


Very atmospheric hostel! they occupy a great area on which the facilities like tables or chill out corners are well distributed. The doublerooms are comfortable and include a safe and an own bathroom. Only the prices for breakfast/dinner are exagerated for normal budget focused backpackers.
