    My favorite part of this hostel was watching the sunset from the rooftop bar area. One of the best places to drink and have fun with disturbing the people trying to sleep. Not many hostels have this feature. The rooms and pool where clean along with the kitchen and dinning area. I would stay here again and defiantly recommend this place to anyone coming to Taganga.

    I had a fantastic time staying 6 nights at La Tortuga whilst doing diving courses - the staff are lovely and go out of their way to help you, and the huge roof terrace was perfect for post-dive siestas and watching the sunsets. Has a social but chilled vibe, so you can rely on getting good sleep but can still meet people as socialise.

    Did my PADI here and was a perfect place to come and chill on a hammock after a day’s diving. Nice and secure and staff are lovely and helpful, facilities are good and had a private room which was nice. 10 min walk to the beach which isn’t bad, just stick to the main streets at night and don’t wander around alone to be safe (though I had no safety issues). Taganga itself isn’t amazing, I just came for diving, but if you do come here then La Tortuga is a great place to stay.

    Amazing rooftop bar which was unfortunately closed but we could at least enjoy the sunset and hammocks. Also a good kitchen and a nice pool too. It’s around a 10min walk from the beach and there was barely any social life there and we might have been the only people staying but still nice design and clean.

    Nice hostel with lots of common areas to meet people. The staff member that checked us in didn’t speak any English though so it was a bit difficult when we were trying to ask where the ATMs were and getting any info about the hostel and area. Not a lot of food options in the area, you need to walk closer to the beach to get something decent. Overall a good stay and hostel was nice and clean.

    So far the worst hostel I stayed in. The kitchen and the bathrooms were incredibly dirty. The first time I saw a cockroach in the bathroom. The bedrooms were also no komfortable. I had to sleep on top and there was no ladder etc. the pillow was like a rock. Also no AC, but two fans from which only the guys in the beds below benefitted. Would not stay here ever again.

    This hostel was my award winning hostel of the dirtiest hostel I stayed in so far in my trip. The rooms (especially bathrooms!!), kitchen, pool ... everything was extremely dirty. The vibe was also not amazing, it felt more like a place for the people who work (/ life) there, them inviting their friends to party with loud music until late in the night, as an actual guest I didnt feel very much invited. I wouldn't recommend staying there.
