Property Description

Casas Viejas is the home of travelers and nature lovers in the Sierra Nevada! We are located at the heart of finca La Victoria, one of the biggest and most famous coffee farms in the mountains of northern Colombia, 30min from Minca and 20km from Santa Marta. Keeping with the rustic style of the coffee haciendas of the region, we offer comfortable accommodation and a cozy atmosphere where you can relax, exchange with other travelers and enjoy stunning mountain views.

Treat yourself with our delicious food a blend of local and international cuisine and savouring handcrafted local beers from the tap in our Jungle Bar. We also organise various outdoors and cultural activities ( hiking, bird-watching, visit to the coffee factory, ...), designed to explore and connect with the luxuriant nature of La Victoria farm. We are also the perfect place to get a traditional indigenous massage or a morning yoga-stretching session in the middle of the jungle. Our hostel lodge is also the ideal place to start your hike to Cerro Kennedy, a summit from where you can see the amazing snowy peaks of the Sierra Nevada.

**Important: Were out of Minca Town, but still part of Minca, For getting here from Minca, you can either take a moto-taxi or a jeep (30min ride), or walk all the way up to here for 2 hours. Please plan to arrive as early as possible, the gates of the finca close at 5:30pm and after this hour the way can get longer and more expensive. We´re located out of town (8km) so, orginice in advance your trip in order to be uphill before sunset.

    Amazing !!! Hard to get to, follow instructions in email! Otherwise you gotta track it up! We did the hike twice for fun for exercise but it’s steep (the short cut not the road ). So zen and amazing there. Staff was great. Stayed two nights! Would recommend at least 3

    My favourite hostel in Colombia. Really great atmosphere, and a nice place to go to relax and hike. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. I regret not staying longer. Can’t wait to come back and visit again

    I've been travelling since 2014 & have visited many different countries like Croatia, Malta, Thailand, Morocco, etc. and this is THE BEST place I've ever stayed at. My bf & I opted for a private room and it was SUCH A DREAM. We had a corner room and the entire room looks out into nature, including the bathroom where you shower !! It was such a dream come true to be waking up to such beauty. Luis, the pool, everything about this place was incredible. It's def off the beaten path but so worth it !

    I stayed for 4 nights and loved the atmosphere. It’s super easy to meet people but also easy to have time on your own if that’s what you’re looking for. Yes, as everybody has said, there is a hill, but it’s really not as horrible as everyone says. It’s no reason to not stay here, it’s just a minor inconvenience. There also IS a kitchen, which I had no idea about because it’s not listed anywhere in the reviews or facilities offered, but the food they serve is so good and fairly priced. 10/10

    So the hostel is the best i ever been to, but getting there is a kinda tough, expensive and time consuming. If you go, make sure you book for 2 nights or more! Don't book the massage at the hostel it is not a normal massage! She will tell you, that you have some evil spirits that you need to get rid off, but it's the same for everyone going there. And she will massage extremely hard o you're feet and close to you're genetils. It is not worth 100k either! Anyway very good hostel!!!

    I stayed in Casas Viejas for two very relaxing nights - although it was a long, uphill and bumpy moto taxi ride up from Mamatoco the location was stunning. The mountainous scenery, picturesque infinity pool, lots of wildlife and quiet, early nights which was welcome after a few busy days in a city. My only qualm would be that the loos weren’t exactly “close” especially if you’re getting up in the night and it was quite cold as the evenings got chilly so ask for an extra blanket!
