Nice hostel, fairly quite when I was there, this was fine for me as I was doing my Padi, but would suggest staying somewhere else if you are looking to party. Staff were really friendly and helpful, although some of them don't speak much English which may be a problem if you don't speak basic Spanish. Hostel is a little way back from the beach, but Taganga is so small it is still easy to get everywhere. Free coffee in the morning.

Staff were super friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was great. It's not far from the beach. However, taxi drivers might take you to the main taxi drop-off point which is a bit of a walk, especially if it's hot and you don't know where you're going. Sheets are changed daily, which is nice, but bathrooms could be cleaner (and the bin emptied more often). Also, the pool was nice the first day I was there but really dirty the last day. Overall great experience- fun and relaxing!

La Tortuga Hostal is a product of it's environment. Taganga is a developing city outside of Santa Marta and while the people are friendly, the atmosphere of the town is run down. Additionally, the hostal was pretty sleepy, the wifi wasn't very good and the rooms were overpriced for what you had.

We enjoyed our stay, everyone in the hostel was very nice and the ambience was great. The Hamacas on the bar are just idyllic. Also the day staff was very friendly and helpfull. On the downside, rooms were a little bit hot and I would suggest that they give bigger autonomy to the staff in charge of the night shifts and also give them more information about tours and travel tips. I totally recommend La Tortuga Hostel.

Rooms were a bit of a sweat box at time. But the atmosphere, staff and all around family feel make up for it. Missing Mona and we were only there for three nights!!! Helped arranged diving and everything. Definitely recommend

This hostel was nice and set in a good location in Taganga. The rooms were slightly cramped but comfortable for the price. Nice rooftop bar and communal areas.
