    Amazing views, good workout to get there, welcoming staff, variety of vegetarian options. Our room was 10/10 with a balcony and a spacious room. Wish we could have stayed longer!

    Beautiful place where you can rest while enjoying beautiful views from Minca over the Sierra Nevada all the way to Santa Marta. A peaceful and magical place. Beware that you need to climb quite some stairs to get to the hostal, so if you have mobility difficulties or do not want to be climbing up and down a good bunch of stairs up a hill twice a day (at least) then this is not the spot for you. However, with the effort come the views and atmosphere. In Cerro Kennedy we recommend Hostal El Ramo!

    Wonderful and amazing! But would caution anyone who is physically challenged that it is very very difficult to access the hostel in that it is located on a very steap hill side in the mountains with no access by vehicle.

    It's a beautiful place with an amazing view to watch the sunset. It's relaxing and quiet but way TOO quiet. The people there barely made any sound it's like everyone was so serious. it felt a little uncomfortable when we would laugh because of the deep silence. They have a vegetarian restaurant which was amazing and Elena was the light that shines in that place with her energy and smile. If you're looking for a lonely super quiet meditation retreat, this place is perfect.

    Our stay at Casa Loma Minca was a restful one. Please beware of the steep uphill hike required to get to the hostel. Once you get to the reception, you'll be rewarded with a great view of the lush landscape. Don't forget to bring insect repellent spray or cream.

    I enjoyed my stay at Casa Loma. It has an amazing relaxing vibe, perfect way to disconnect and connect with nature. Amazing views over the mountains, sunsets and Santa Marta. The food was really good (+ vegan :)!), especially the dinner, which unfortunately was only available once during my 6 nights stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful and they have a really cute doggie and kitties. The cabin came with a light, plugs and a locker which was great. Would recommend staying here!

    The staff here is very nice and there's a great bar/nightlife scene. The rooms are rough and the walk up the hill is brutal.
