    Los amigos y familia de La Tortuga Hostel nos recibieron MUY bien, e incluso fueron esenciales en la programación de nuestro viaje al parque Tayrona. Un ambiente bien tranquilo, relajado, con muy buena vista. Lo único que les advierto a los huéspedes es que la región es bien seca, y desafortunadamente el hostal no cuenta con agua filtrada, solo agua embotellada para vender. Les recomiendo que compren agua en bolsas en Taganga antes de ir al hostal. Esto vale para toda la región.

    Lovely place to stay, the enviroment is awesome, Also, the staff is so cool. The only thing is that the beach is about 10 minutes, but is not impossible to walk to there.

    Nice spot to chill and get a view of the bay. It's kind of far up the hill from the water, but only like ten minutes.

    Very Good

    Decent hostel if you’re in Taganga. Rooms are basic but pretty clean and have an en-suite and a fan. Storage lockers are in reception which isn’t ideal if you want your valuables close to hand, but otherwise very secure. Wasn’t too lively when I visited, but it was in the off season and there was still a bit of karaoke going on at night. Pool looked nice on here but was pretty mucky when I actually stayed. Breakfast was very good though, and there’s a really nice restaurant next door

    The hostel was run by volunteers only and the sanitaries didn't seem to be cleaned regularly. And the kitchen wasn't nice because it had almost no equipment like mugs or spoons and hasn't been cleaned by staff regularly either. The volunteers were very nice but I prefer a kitchen without ants. The hostel has a pool and a roof top terrace though. The view was amazing and it was nice to hang out there!

    This place has no service at all. We arrived and no one was there, we didn't get toilet paper in the bathroom (only until we asked for it) and it said we couldn't bring any alcohol because there was a bar where you could buy it, so we went there and was empty and stayed there for a while, played and no one went to do anything. overall there wasn't anything happening. Not even service happening.

    We were the only people staying here so absolutely zero atmosphere. The advertised onsite bar was closed. Bed sheets had blood stains on and some blood stain on the mattress. Bathroom bin was not emptied. About 6 volunteers 'work' here, only one spoke to us the whole time we were there. When we checked out we were over charged by quite a lot each and the deposit wasn't taken into account. It took a lot of arguing with reception showing receipts and emails before it was cleared up. Disappointing.

    A friend recommended this hostel to us so we were pretty surprised to find that the hostel wasn't that good for what you pay. The dorms are overcrowded and the linen dirty. Fans that barely worked and didn't reach top bunks so no sleep as Taganga is HOT. Kitchen dirty and under-equipped. Only one girl working there at the time and she wasn't welcoming and didn't really help with anything. To top it off there was no atmosphere so not worth the lack of hygiene and service.
