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.

    Wow, what an amazing hostel! A really nice spot high up in the mountains. The hammocks and bar were the best! We took the jeep to Casa Elemento, which costs 120.000 COP in total. You can share it with up to 5 or 6 persons (depending on which jeep). Costs by motorbike are 20.000 COP per person.

    Had the best time here. No kitchen and on top of the mountain so you have to buy the dinners and breakfasts which We found very overpriced. However, the food was amazing. The staff were great fun. Loved it!

    Nice atmosphere if you are into partying. Some rooms are very close to the bar, so there is a chance you will be listening to music all day long. Beautiful view and fun times. Not very close to minca, so you'll have to take a motorbike up.

    Awesome location with great views and nice atmosphere during the day and night. The food is tasty, but could get expensive if you stayed for more than a few days. My only comment would be the pool didn't look too clean!

    Staff was not helpfull and don’t care about the customers. I fell down because there was something broke. I told them, but they didn’t even ask how i was or didn’t want to give my icecubes to cool it. I also don’t think they are fixing it. Highly overated. You can better go for a daytrip and not sleeping here. Food was nice but expansive. Location was far out of town.

    Wish we read more of the reviews here before booking two nights. In my opinion only worth it for the view and chilling in the hammocks. I would just go for a day trip up here. Although WiFi breaks are nice, it’s hard to book your next stays without it, and when asked the receptionist for help he couldn’t be bothered. Seems like the whole crew is there to have fun for themselves, not there for the guests. Rooms are hot and not very nice, and construction noise sort of ruins the peace.

    This hostel was filthy. We were told not to stay here, just visit for the hammocks. We went against it and stayed - regret! We were put in a separate block called 'Finca' - this was very secluded and so dirty, the tap water was brown!! All of the toilet facilities are gross, this hostel needs doing up asap! Also the member of staff on reception was so unhelpful, miserable & rude. They also play music VERY loud but the place itself isn't that type of place. Don't stay!

    Terrible service and a highly uncomfortable atmosphere. Facilities barely worked and it was not clean. I would not recommend anyone to stay here, it is extremely over priced for what it is
