    I wish we could have stayed another night. The hostel entrance is close to the road so it is easy to find and simple to arrange transportation. However, the rooms and common areas are nestled in the quiet, peaceful jungle with beautiful views all around. We spent the evening by the pool, and the morning next to the river. Fabiana, Oscar, and all of the staff were lovely!

    This hostel is beautiful! The views are absolutely stunning everywhere you go! You can walk into town (10min) and eat lunch for half the price, or stay on site and forget all about the outside world! There are tons of cucarrones but closing the windows and putting a towel under the door solved that problem. I would 100% recommend for people who like a combination of nature and luxury!

    Lovely rustic hostel in the heart of Tayrona. The host Fabienne is amazing, she will ensure that you are comfortable, and she will provide you with all the info. The food & cocktails are amazing. The natural pool is perfect for cooldown after a day of hiking. The rooms are on top of a hill (beautiful views), there are stairs to climb. Wifi - was good (only available in lounge area), and free parking. Great place to relax and to enjoy nature.

    This hostal was perfect for what I needed- somewhere to stay overnight near Tayrona so I could simply walk into the park early the next morning. The natural pool was also very cool and nice to chill out by. The beds and bathrooms were a bit dirty, with a lot of insects in the bathroom, but you are after all staying in nature. The staff was very friendly and helpful with advice about the park.

    Fabienne (Mama Tayrona) is the heart and soul of this place. I really enjoyed learning more about her & had she built the place out of nothing in the jungle! I enjoyed the cocky American who told everyone he was amazing at chess. Challenges were issued to everyone who declined, but me. I had him checkmated in 10 moves & no one heard anything from him the rest of the night! I also enjoyed the chat w/Mama T & the Belgium actress. It's all about the people & the experiences that made it so great!😊

    Very Good

    The place looks great and the way to the hostel is cool. The swimming pool is nice. From your accommodation it's a great view over the area. Unfortunately it's usually not allowed to cook by oneself, which is actually standard in every hostel with dorms worldwide. From time to time there is no electricity. I recommend to the hostel to buy a second power generator in case the present one does not work again.
