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.

    I wish I stayed here for more then three days. I coyote stayed a week easy. The place is nothing short of amazing. The staff is fantastic. The food super good. And the views breathtaking. We got a private room and hands down the nicest place we stayed on our 16 day trip. The road to the hostel is pretty intense. But worth the bumps and spin outs . Stay here!! You will not want to leave

    The only thing bad about our stay at was that it was not long enough! We arrived in the afternoon with 3 of us terribly unwell. We upgraded to the private suite which is absolutely divine, with a balcony overlooking the whole valley, a beautiful en-suite and comfy beds. The chef changed our dinners to a delicious soup to nurse us back to health. The staff went out of their way to help us and we are so grateful. ps. The communal loo has the best view for your business. Chilled vibes. 10/10

    Amazing hostel!! We had such a great time here - you have the most amazing view from the hostel (especially when you cozy up in one of the hammocks while the weather changes constantly) with great staff, good food, cute pets & an amazing atmosphere. They have a fireplace, lots of different activities (we did the waterfall hike) and communal dinner :)) Only thing is getting there on the mototaxi was a real adventure as the road was kind of slippery after the rain so we'd recommend the jeep ;)

    Lovely place with gorgeous views. Great food. Bathrooms overlooking the mountains are a nice touch and make for a relaxing sit on the pot. Also great food and unlimited free coffee until 3pm, which was wonderful. It is somewhat isolated either via a 2 hour walk or 20 minute motor bike ride from Minca (20k pesos) but is well worth the trip if you are fine with paying extra for transport or walking uphill with your luggage. Thanks for a nice stay!

    A lovely hostel with the most beautiful views! The staff/volunteers were all really friendly and inviting. Bit further away from Minca and the waterfalls but the views are worth it and you can easily take a moto taxi if you don't want to walk. I really liked how they do a communal meal and the food was amazing (veggie options too). Perfect place to relax. I would have loved to stay longer.

    The facilities here border on incredible and the hostel staff are incredibly friendly. It’s slightly pricier than other Colombian hostels. No wifi! During our stay the bugs were horrific. It was almost impossible to keep them out of our communal meals. I mistakenly left my shoes outside our room, and I had to shake out the bucket of bugs that was inside them. A screened in dining area would have been better for the types of meals served. Otherwise the food was delicious.

    Very Good

    It was ok, difficult to get to with nothing else nearby really, little atmosphere, some organized activities at night would’ve been nice, everything has to be paid for, yoga, hiking, etc which is usually included in other hostels, also the food was a little expensive and they assume you’re eating it if you’re there I guess because when we checked out there were extra charges for dinners we didn’t eat, but the receptionist was nice and adjusted our bill, the food we did eat there was great.
