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 (horse-riding, 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.

    WOW! This place is incredible. Perfect place to relax and unwind. No wifi so just a head's up if you need to work! Clean rooms and bathrooms. Great atmosphere and helpful staff. It's chilly up there so take warm clothes.

    If your visiting Minca you have to stay here! The hostel is perched up high on the side of the mountains with an incredible view. The private bedroom was beautiful with a balcony, hammock and rocking chairs. The communal dinners were delicious and the bar was a nice area to relax in the evenings. The hostel offer lots of different activities including a waterfall hike, yoga, coffee tour and birdwatching. Finally, they have the cutest cat called Mona and bake the best cookies I’ve ever eaten!

    Staying at this hostel was a highlight of my experience in Colombia. It is a beautiful hostel in an amazing location. It was extremely nice to disconnect and live without wifi and i felt extremely relaxed while staying here. The food is also delicious and very high quality.

    This hostel is just breathtaking and I did not even include the view. Who ever made through Minca, the coffee farm and finally Casas Viejas will find a vibrant community of travellers and an extremely friendly staff that fosters your ideas in relaxing as well as exploring the beautiful landscape of the Sierra Nevada! Thank you for the good organisation!

    This place is heaven!! The food is unbelievable so plan on spending a little bit of money while you are there- it is worth it! The vibe is very fun and relaxed- happy hour and family dinner brings everyone together and they have a campfire to sit around after dinner. I would go back in a heartbeat.

    Amazing hostel, definitely worth the extra trek up from Minca. Such a beautiful location, and if you want to explore the surrounding areas they’ve even got a dog that takes you on a tour of the waterfalls! Atmosphere is not crazy, but they’ve got a happy hour with locally brewed beer, and it’s pretty nice to sit and chill and play cards. Try not to miss the sunset over the mountains. Highly recommended, could have done another night or two

    The hostel was wonderful. Totally in the nature, the food was delicious, the staff very helpful, the beds comfy and the view from the toilets/showers stunning. But it's far away from everything so plan to hike a lot or take mototaxis (20-30k depending on where you are)/ a jeep (100k for the whole jeep) for travelling in between the spots. There is no wifi and no lundry service. If you plan to hike up Cerro Kennedy, its a perfect location to start. They are currently building a pool which is top
