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.

    We heard such amazing things about this hostel and it still surpassed every expectation we had!The staff, food, spaces, views are all incredible! We met such lovely people - the bar is full every evening and the scheduled meal times create a lovely sociable atmosphere. Lots of activities to do if you want but we chose to do NOTHING - we just chilled in a hammock, read, snoozed, ate, drank, played board games and it was just BLISS!

    Probably the best hostel I’ve ever been too. Casas Viejas creates a vibe that is unrivaled. I loved all of the activities offered. It was a perfect place to unwind and enjoy the mountains. Definitely recommend.

    Loved this place!! Can see why everyone raves about it. Beds will be like gold dust once the infinity pool is built! Loved the breakfasts, family dinner, horse riding but most of all the hammock in the tree and the view from the loo!

    Incredible hostel with a stunning view. Would 100% recommend this hostel. Only downfall is the 20K mototaxi each way to the hostel from minca town but the drive was guys and worth it for the hostel!

    This was hands down the most unique hostel we’ve ever stayed at - situated in the mountains and totally surrounded by nature. Only some showers had hot water, despite what we were told, but the experience was phenomenal regardless. Upon checkout it looks like our initial deposit did not go through so we need to look into that.... but such a lovely place with great food and great staff. Coffee tour was interesting as well.

    Amazing hostel! Felt like I was treating myself being there. Great facilities, amazing food, lovely staff and a great experience. It’s an amazing place to relax and chill and meet people. Would recommend it to every person Coming to Minca, could have stayed for much longer! The only downside was that checkout was quite slow.

    Really far out, so you’re pretty much stuck to the hostel and their food and activities. The breakfast they offered was completely overpriced, considering you don’t have any alternative. The hostel itself is beautiful, but the crowd overall a bit bourgeois.

    Absolutely lovely place to spend a few days relaxing and taking in the scenery. Met great people and the bed was very comfortable. Not super impressed with the staff, Kenneth in the kitchen was fantastic but otherwise staff were not particularly helpful or accommodating, did little to facilitate a welcoming or social atmosphere. I also found the excursions to be overpriced. But the location and facility are beautiful and overall I had a great time, would stay again.

    Absolutely baffled as to why this place has such a high overall score. The staff are ok: there was no one on reception when we arrived in a storm so we stood around for 20 mins in soaking clothes One male staff was confrontational with a lady from the kitchen when we wanted to order a picnic. It was so unnecessary and weird. The room was nice but the bathrooms were disgusting. They were only cleaned once a day which is not enough for the amount of people using them. I wouldn’t stay again.
