Property Description

Winner of Hostelworld's Best Hostel In Colombia 2017 and Second in Latin America!

10 minutes from the Lost City (Ciudad Perdida) pickup point

25 minutes from Tayrona National Park (Zaino / Cañaveral entrance)

We offer accommodation in hammocks (our 18 bed dorm), each of which comes fully equipped with a pillow, blanket, power point, locker and mosquito net. We also have three 6 bed dorms, all en-suite, two with air-con, plus the 12 bed fan cooled dorm. Our private rooms come in the form of 7 gorgeous cabañas, each with a double size bed (that can be made into twins if needed!), safes and blankets.

Our hostel is set right in the middle of a stunning jungle, whilst some of Colombia’s best beaches are just a 30 minute walk away. We can organise surf board rentals and lessons with our friends down at All Good Surf, plus Palomino is just up the road.

At the hostel we have a ping pong table, a basketball net, a volleyball court, pool table and probably the best bar in South America, serving up cool mora gin & tonics, maracuya vodka soda’s and more. We’ve been known to host the odd party - check the social calendar on our website for more information!

    Nice getaway hostel! Fun activities and free yoga! The food was also really reasonably priced (free brekkie, 12k lunch, 15k dinner) and super tasty. Nice open dorm areas, lots of big clean toilets, staff were awesome. A nice experience if you’re in need of a chill and some outdoor time. PSA: antihistamines stop mosquito bites from itching

    Theres good atmosphere at this hostel, and the food is pretty good. Not necessarily for those on a tight budget as theres no communal kitchen & all your food must be purchased from the hostel due to its isolated location. A pleasant place to chill for a few days, the hammocks are surprisingly comfortable. No wifi, but there are tablets at reception to check the important things if needed. Better than Costeno Beach hostel, so if your toying between the two then go here. Bring mozzy spray
