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.

    Paradise! We didn’t want to leave after two nights. The rooms are clean and well decorated. The pool is stunning and there are lots of places to hang out around the hostel. It’s easy to socialize but also have peace and quiet if that’s what you’re looking for. Friendly staff and great activities in the area. Worth the bumpy ride up. Would definitely come back!

    Easily the best hostel I stayed at while in Colombia. Truly a steal given the price and beautiful location. The food was also the best I had in the country as well, with huge portions. I’d recommend birding and mototaxiing up to the base of Cerro Kennedy for sunrise

    One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at!! Incredible location (prepare for a bumpy mototaxi ride though!), great infinity pool looking right out over the mountains. Food on site was dynamite and very reasonably priced. Staff were super helpful at organizing stuff, such as hiking Cerro Kennedy. Atmosphere couldn't have been better, lots of people chilling to socialize and every evening people gather for happy hour then dinner, then post-dinner at the bar for dancing, trivia, etc. 10/10!

    A stunning property with amazing views of the mountains down to Santa Marta and the ocean way off in the distance. About 30min Mototaxi ride up from the town of Minca. I wish I had more than 2 days here, but my trip wouldn't allow for it. The staff are so lovely, and the food was next level fantastic with awesome value. Bring lots of high quality mosquito repellent! They should sell it at the hostel, because the town isn't that easy to get to. I had repellent, and my legs are a sea of bites.

    A sophisticated and professionally run hostel with the facilities and service levels of an eco resort. Great local draft beer and food, wonderful infinity pool, amazing views, hammocks, a fire at night, warm showers - An unmissable stop in columbia even though the motorbike taxi or jeep ride there is an experience in itself The waterfall tour for 20kcop (€5) and the horseriding (70k cop) above the clouds on a cared for and heathy horse was a real highlight and I got to trot and canter.

    Very Good

    Beautiful space, really nicely designed. I felt like people were social but it had quite a bougeous vibe, not really backpackery. Staff wasn’t very nice, kinda more on the arrogant side. i asked for an extra blanket cause it gets very cold in the night and they said they don’t have even though is saw some spare ones. I also felt nauseous one eve and tried to cancel my dinner, they didn’t really react with any empathy, were kind of more annoyed about having to make a change.
