    Awesome Hostel! Will always stay at Garden House! This is the second time in three years that I have come to Taganga and the second time I have decided to stay at Garden House. I had heard from some other travelers of their incredible experience here, and when I stayed here three years ago I understood why! The place is super clean, the staff is always friendly and helpful, the breakfasts are simple and delicious, the beer is cold and the hammocks are always peaceful. Best place to stay in CO!

    My friend and I stayed here for 8 nights while doing our Scuba course. Garden House is the perfect place to relax and meet people and enjoy the Taganga Bay. The hostel is beautiful and clean. All the staff are very accomodating - they even took care of me when I was sick. They even made me Mango Leaf tea from their Mango Tree!! The attention is the best - you really feel like this place is home. I recommend this hostel to everybody! 10 out of 10!

    I stayed in three different hostels in Santa Marta/Taganga before discovering Garden House. And I am so glad that I arrived here! During my 5 months in Colombia, it has been one of the best stays. The staff, the space, the guests - everything was great. The beds were comfy, the air conditioning was strong, the hostel is super clean, the kitchen is large and fully-equipped. And the staff/volunteers know the town and the coast so well. Garden House feels like home. I will definitely be back!

    Nice common areas and hammocks to relax in. Main downside was one bathroom we could use so it was often occupied. The kitchen was also often used by the volunteers during our stay.

    Nice hostel but they had a bad case of bed bugs while I was in the dorm. We made them aware of the problem but they didn’t take any immediate action so I moved somewhere else.

    We had a private room which was a bit dated but quite large and fine with the exception of the shower which could have benefited from a shower head which was missing. The location was good with the exception of the very noisey hostel next door which played loud music into the night. There is a real shortage of water in Taganaga and unfortunately the hostel ran out while we were staying. This was the top price we paid for a room while travelling through Colombia and far from the best room/hostel

    I took a private room and luckily didn't book more than one night. The hostel seemed like it needed some renovation and cleaning. The front door isn't locked and you don't have a locker in your room. The room wasn't clean. I could feel the dust on the floor (the room wasn't washed). The water stream in the shower was extremely weak. The mattress was very hard. There is an old AC and ceiling fan which does a lot of noise. The atmosphere was pretty dead. I moved to hostel nirvana the next day.

    Won't ever stay here again. Old lumpy pillows, never any hand soap in the bathroom, saw animal s*** on the floor twice, shower was just a pipe coming from the wall with a trickle of cold water, security was a joke (you had to leave the key with the front desk but half the time they weren't there) and the vibe was super weird (tons of 'workers/volunteers/family' that were there but weren't engaging or helpful, plus they always had the TV on so you had to listen to that all the time). No bueno.
