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. We´re located out of town (8km) so, orginice in advance your trip in order to be uphill before sunset.

    Great spot in the mountains to relax after spending time in the heat of Santa Marta. Only headache is getting up to the location. But the hostel provides adequate instructions and help. Wonderful stay.

    We spent two nights in Casas Viejas and it was wonderful! the location is stunning and truly unique, everyone at the hostel was friendly and helpful, the waitresses were so so kind. The beds are very comfortable compared to other hostels on the coast and everything is super clean. I believe the food was my favorite part, you get really nutritious meals with vegetarian options for a fair price. I'd definitely come back, it's a perfect spot to have a relaxing weekend surrounded by nature.

    Overall a really nice hostel but it could be better. First of all, the location is amazing but really far away from Minca. That wouldnt be a problem except the fact that in order to get there you have to take a jeep for 80K pesos (I have got a luggage,) which is way overpriced for such a ride. Second, there isnt much food to choose from, which not always that good. No place for laundry either. The positive thing is the swimming pool and the incredible view. A great hostel but can be better.
