With colonial, pre-colombian and african influences to be found in its food, art and customs, the culture and people here are just as diverse as their environment. Our hostel is within walking distance of the Pueblito/Calabazo entrance to Tayrona National Park.Behind the property there are many trails into the forest and up the Rio Pierda where you can find various natural pools and waterfalls. Some of the most beautiful beaches in Colombia are easily accessible and the town of Santamarta with its airport too.We also offer help planning your activities and making the most of your stay with us, at our front desk reception.

    One of the best hostels we’ve stayed at in Colombia! Amazing layout surrounded by nature with access to a stunning river, mango trees and natural swimming pool. Food was second to none aswell and the owners were lovely with great with knowledge about Tayrona National Park which is just a 10 minute walk away.

    Great staff, great location, great atmosphere (bar until 12 but far away from the sleeping area so it is very quiet). I highlight recommend staying here before or after Parque Tayrona! It's a 10 minute walk to the back entrance of the park (and trust me, you want to use the back entrance because the front entrance gets packed!). Highly recommend. Also, the dinner here is delicious.

    I really liked this hostel, I wish I could have stayed longer. The place is beautiful, the swimming pool is a life saver, and the food was great. I really liked the rooftop on top of the accommodations, I found it to be great to enjoy the evening breeze and to watch stars. I would suggest putting a couple of chairs/recliners there! On the negatives, the lockers need to be replaced and the bar could offer more snacks. I would definitely stay here again.

    Very Good

    The hostel is in a really beautiful location and the rooms are cheap! You only get WiFi in the bar area which wasn’t a problem and it’s a good place to chill out. The main issue with the hostel was the “communal kitchen” it’s tiny, cramped and very, very basic and had so many flies. If you’re on a tight budget and need to cook your own food do not stay here. Otherwise the hostel lunch and dinner for an extra cost. The dorm rooms have 2 fans between 8 and 10 beds so the rooms are HOT.

    Very Good

    Mama Tayrona has a lot of potential but a few things could be improved. Facilities were good, although the toilets often lacked soap. No water filter available & one night there were no bottles to purchase. The staff were friendly & helpful. However the owner could be unprofessional & his friends were cliquey & negative which dampened the mood. Great dinners, but note free breakfast is just cereal & coffee. Tayrona park is v close & bus from Santa M stops outside the hostel.
