Property Description

Casas Viejas is the home of travellers 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 travellers 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: 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.

    As described by others little bit difficult to get to but worth it just out of 30 minute motorcycle trip. Oscar the bartender was awesome he took us on a trip. Waterfalls. He's the go-to guy he knows what's going on and he'll hook you up with good things to do. I had a good time there. Food was good I didn't think it was overpriced I mean you're perched up on the side of a mountain you're not going to get dirt cheap food up there I thought it was reasonable and it was very tasty

    Wonderful hostel high up in the hills above Minca. Even the moto-taxi ride to get there is an adventure! One look at the view from the infinity pool - preferably with a local beer brewed just down the hill at Cerveceria Nevada in hand - and you'll feel more relaxed than you'd ever thought possible. Arturo in reception is the most chilled and helpful receptionist you could wish to meet. And the Happy Colibri Coffee Stout might just be the best beer in Colombia. Hostelling perfection.

    Casas Viejas is more than an amazing getaway in the mountains, with great amenities, breathtaking views from the pool, and delicious meals cooked by a stellar kitchen staff. You become a part of the family when you stay here. The staff are all so friendly and welcoming, and the atmosphere they provide naturally brings everyone closer. Family dinner at 7:30 every night, quiz nights at the bar on Mondays, spontaneous dance parties with guests and workers alike - a truly special experience.

    Excellent location and heated pool. Great spot to unwind and take a break from some of those party hostels. Beautiful views and the privates are gorgeous rooms. I wish they had more options for snack foods and changed their daily soups/meal options more.

    Loved this place and its secluded location in the middle of the coffee hills. The dorm was great value for the boutique feel, and the infinity pool is spectacular. The staff were friendly and helpful throughout, and the communal meals were all of good quality. It is on the Minca area hiking loop, but if you are not prepared to walk longish distances, you will have $20,000 for a moto taxi each time you want to go in and out of the town. No wifi was a negative for me. Mostly couples staying.

    - amazing view - there are a few hiking trials. That is very nice. - the food that served is the typical Colombian platters with rice and meat. It is nice. - there are only 3 shared toilets (and 1 other but that on was broken and it seemed already for a long time). 3 shared toilets is not enough. The toilets were therefore often dirty.
