We loved our stay at La Tortuga, Mona and Sean took great care of us and we would certainly go back. Lovely building with a roof top bar and great music, games and spectacular view. Mona was happy to have our bags whilst we went to Tayrona for a few days and also look after our laptop after we left it in the room! The pool and kitchen are perfect too to cool down and keep costs of living down, brilliant place highly recommended.

Amazing staff and rooftop bar! A bit dirty but that is understandable with the water issues.


The place was really nice, clean and beautiful constructon, great pool and the staff always helpful and friendly. The only problem was that is was located a lit of bit far away from the center, the street didn´t look very safe at night.


The staff here were great, very helpful. They kept my camera which I left there, called cabs, gave advice, set up dives and were really friendly. They had a good kitchen and nice four person dorms, also had a great rooftop bar with lovely barman and a great view. Enjoyed my time here.


The hostel was clean, with a nice back garden and pool, and a nice TV room. The wi fi is also excellent. It was pretty quiet when I was there (early in the week) so the atmosphere wasn't great. It's also located a bit further away from the beachside compared to some of the other places. Good place for a night or two.
