The hostel was perfect in this little town. Away from any type of commotion but walking distance from everything. The terrace with the hammocks and bar is such a bonus for a relaxing trip. The staff was beyond helpful and helped us with all of our day excursions and even getting us to Cartagena and picking us up from the airport. i have stayed at many hostels, this was by far the best one.
We stayed two separate nights at this hsotel, in between we were supposed to stay at Tayrona but we could not.. during that in between day tortuga let us leave our belongings and use the facilities of the hostel. The receptionist Alfredo was beyond helpful. Helped us from the moment he sent a taxi to pick us up at the airport to booking our bus leaving taganga. he even helped us book another hostel during the middle nigth when they were booked. The room was perfectly cozy and hammocks everywher
The hostel is quite nice and the kitchen is more than adequate.
Tortuga was good as a place to relax but the problem was it was very empty. Even though there were other people staying there the atmosphere wasn't great for meeting new people and the bar (although fantastic) was always empty. Nice and chilled tho, helpful staff at the front desk. AC would've been nice
