    Mama Tayrona Hostel is a gem. The wonder starts as you cross a hanging bridge to arrive at the lounge/ restaurant (tasty meals!). Further up, a river fed beautiful pool and at the top, lush with increíble sun rise/ set views, the rooms. There are trails behind and a river to swim. Fabian, Danny and the crew are kind and beyond helpful. It’s an amazing place to be tucked into nature.

    This is possibly the best hostel I've been at. I say that because it's more like a retreat than anything, with a nature and beauty vibe. The staff is incredible - Dani is awesome and runs the place well. Very chill, relaxing atmosphere with natural beauty and peace. It's also a 10 minute walk from the back entrance to Tayrona park, which is the best way to get in. There's hiking, beaches, and everything nearby. Its outside the city, which is a plus! Would highly recommend!!

    This is one of my favorite places I have stayed! Very relaxing and chill place. Great location for exploring the coast and only a ten min walk to the calabazo entrance to Tayrona park (which is best to use as its much less crowded) I forgot something there and they found it and kept it for me until I came back. Good food and cocktails and juices. The land is wonderful with a nice trail to the river with a great swimming hole. Also a great view from the rooftop. Peaceful

    Dani is super chill. He rescued the dogs, cats and horses on the property. The hostel is in nature and there's a beautiful river behind it. Although there was a power outage in the entire area during our first night, we enjoyed our time there.

    Really enjoyed our stay here! It’s a very relaxed, slow paced atmosphere but if you can settle into it and not expect things to happen instantly or exactly to plan it’s a lovely experience. Fabienne is wonderful and has heaps of really good tips for the area. We went horse riding and tubing which they organised externally, and they helped us organise our day at Tayrona Park and saved us 4hrs of lining up! Would definitely recommend here for your Tayrona park visit.

    Beautiful property with a very nice bar and pool and great views of the jungle. Also great location, just a quick walk from the back entrance to Tayrona. Downsides were a staff that, while friendly, did not know how to do anything other than point you in the direction of the owner (like, even for towels). So the owner was very busy or hard to find because she had to do everything herself. More staff training would make a huge difference. The rooms were also very plain and not the cleanest.
