    We really enjoyed staying here. The location was a bus ride from Santa Marta and a 20 minute walk to the entrance of Tayrona Park. The pool was lovely and sleeping more or less outside was a cool experience. We really enjoyed the fact that every night there is a family dinner, where everyone sits together and eats. A great way to socialise and meet new people. One thing to be aware of, on arrival we were told we were auto signed up for dinners, so on our second night we went to have dinner but they said we

    I only stayed for one night as I went before my visit to Tayrona Park. The location is very convenient as it's just a 23 min walk, or short bus ride to the park. I was also able to leave my hand luggage suitcase at the hostel in their bodega. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was comfortable. I would have happily stayed longer to make more use of the great infinity pool. The hostel was really nice.

    Nice hostel great views - breakfast included is pretty minimal. 12 man dorm is quite cramped. Food options are nice but only option for dinner is family style and if you don’t like the option there isn’t much. Staff are absolutely great and make it very fun. Big bug problem - had to eat dinner in the dark due to quantity of bugs.

    Beautiful pool but WHAT is up with the furniture??? There is no where comfortable to sit in the whole hostel. All of the furniture is super uncomfortable, even the lounge chairs. Takes away from the experience when you cant get comfy

    Very Good

    Surprised by the crowd it attracted (mostly 18-25 yo. looking to party, it seemed), but I was only there for 3 nights. Music is bumping just after breakfast until 11pm or so. I'm not sure exactly b/c I put in earplugs. I recommend paying the extra $ for a four-person dorm: it's quieter, warmer and better for sleeping. I heard the group rooms are hard to sleep in. The wifi is VERY spotty, but just switch between networks and have patience. Portions for vegetarian dishes at dinner can be small...

    The Journey was a picturesque hostel, although the steep uphill trek to reception was an unwelcome surprise. The hostel was clean and the views were spectacular but I felt some of the staff weren’t particular happy to help. Ordering drinks took 10/15 mins and the “family dinner” was limited to choice and service was rather slow. Pool was a lot smaller than the pictures.
