    I had originally planned to stay 5 days at The Journey Hostel, and ended up extending a couple nights. The staff was warm and friendly, the food was delicious, and the views were amazing! It was a great place to visit Tayrona park from, and I enjoyed the beauty around the area of the hostel, as well as from the top bar/hammock/relaxation area. I would highly recommend staying here!

    I have traveled all over the world and this was my favorite hostel I have ever stayed at! The views are incredible, the staff is helpful & caring, the food is SO GOOD. I would 100 percent check out the house back riding that is offered (the front desk will arrange that for you). This is the perfect chill hostel, nothing crazy. I stayed in the private room and well worth the money! Thank you Journey Hostel

    This place has hospitality down to a fine art. Amazing place to stay. If you need somewhere to stay before or after a trip to Parque Tayrona, or just a place to stay while passing through, this is it. Enjoy

    Really perfect hostel! It's still under construction so the shower and tap in the top dorm were just a trickle of water. Would definitely stay again though, for the views alone!

    Great place to stay if visiting Tayrona. The staff was super friendly and planned some fun activities at nighttime. The location is far from any restaurants so you are kind of stuck eating their dinner but it was a great opportunity to make friends. The views are great! It was hot at night/while sleeping. Filtered water was convenient.

    It was ok for one night, the views out of our room were lovely though and the staff were nice. It’s just a bit in the middle of no where.
