Property Description

What a view from the worlds largest hammock, a place to sit back with a cold beverage or fresh fruit juice and chat among new friends.

Hang out with toucans during the day and wake up to the sound of howler monkeys in the morning. Full service restaurant and bar offering amazing western comfort food made to order, and sourced locally. Menu service during the day with evening meals served family style. Amazing sunsets - with views of the sea and the city below - followed by our nightly campfire.

We have beds made with Pine from the jungle inside the main house, And now we are proud to unveil our newest *Relax* dorm with the thickest matresses and a giant hammcok off the front deck....further away from social areas so its a great place to catch up on your sleep and bird watch from your bed!

Friday BBQ's, fresh breads, local ingredients, amazing fruits on site and we are now cooking from the new earth oven. Cool breeze, chill vibe, hiking accessible, coffee and bird watching tours. We are always adding cool things and recently we put in the new tree house for an even higher lookout.

Our bar is fully stocked with every thing from water to Limoncello made by our Italian neighbour and craft beer from the local brewery.

We do employ many locals who have grown up close by so do not expect fluent English from our receptionists, but do expect to be welcomed warmly and to practise your Spanish.

    Omg what a place! Amazing scenery, 6 giant hammocks in the jungle, nice pool, and the BEST food I've eaten in Colombia. The o my thing to criticize is the extremely outrageous prices for alcohol. Like wtf man?!

    really nice staff. liked the bar and hammock atmosphere. the finca elemento area where i slept is quieter than the main area, and you share the general space with locals who i think are workers on the coffee farm. I would warn that at one point a pack of dogs started snarling and chasing something around the rooms that sounded like a jungle creature. I did not feel comfortable leaving my room at night after that. LOVED the hike to here in both directions...do the loop and coffee tour!

    They definitely have fallen way behind with the maintaience of this hostel. The bathroom doors either don't close/lock or they lock you into the bathroom itself. I had to crawl through the bathroom window at 3am because the door locked itself from the outside. It was pretty dirty while we were there and they nearly ran out of food for breakfast, none of my group was overly impressed. The views are cool but I wouldn't stay there again. Also very $$ to get up and down the hill approx 1hr from town

    Incredible view but that’s about it! Really isn’t worth the perilous journey to and from. Very run down. My first night was spent in a dorm that was situated a 5 minute uphill walk from reception, next to the homes of local families, and toilets. Not very social at all! No lock on the dorm door so anyone could just walk in. The window didn’t close fully and there were no mosquito nets so I was eaten alive all night. Food at the family meal was tasty. Stay elsewhere and come for the day.
