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.

    This hostel is incredible! Perhaps one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. I booked a private room and it was great. It takes a while to get here, but the scenery, the staff, the food, the people, all make the trip worth it.

    Nothing to complain about! Completely incredible location, amazing and friendly staff who are all volunteering travellers themselves. The beds are so comfortable, the facilities are great (toilet and shower over looking the mountains), really comfortable beds, amazing food. It was the best place we have stayed so far in Colombia - no WiFi means that people all interact and there’s a wonderful atmosphere, so that wasn’t an issue at all. Great value for money- highly recommend to anyone.

    Amazing place to have some rest (also because up there the temperature is surprisingly cool compared to Santa Marta and Minca). They offer various activities, are very friendly and the food is the best we’ve had in Colombia. Also I like that dinner is enjoyed with all guests at the same time.

    An amazing atmosphere! Casas Viejas is perfectly placed to make you feel a part of the wild and beautiful natural surroundings, meaning you experience much more than you would even in national parks like Tayrona. Brilliant staff who go out of their way to create a warm and friendly atmosphere. Easily the best hostel I've stayed in.

    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.
