    Everything in the description is true. Sunrise & sunset views are incredible. Staff is super sociable and helpful. The owner's always around and you can tell they care about their guests. Comfy beds with a nice view. Food is very good and tasty. Only cons is the wifi that literally only works at 6am when ppl are asleep. I recommend going there for a chill stay.

    We had such a good time at the Journey Hostel. The volunteers and everyone else were amazing to hang out with. Lots of stuff to do around and the staff has every single bit of information that you need! Super chill vibe, the dorms are amazing and clean, and the owner is great at what he does. Definitely would want to come back!

    Journey Hostel is a haven of tranquillity on an incline above the main road between santa marta and palomino. The little casas have open walls so you get a gorgeous breeze in bed at night and the common area for dinner is an amazing place to view the sunset over the hills. The family dinners are super tasty and the staff and volunteers amazingly helpful and friendly. We booked our lost city trek through the hostel and it proved a fab jumping off point to start 4 days hiking. Thank you Journey!

    Very nice hostel and fair prices. The breakfast is excellent and the rooftop pool area as well. However, there is no kitchen for guests, the music on the roof and in the lobby is way to loud for a good atmosphere (can be changed!!) and the hostel is located 5-10mins outside the city center.

    The location and atmosphere are amazing! Best view you can imagine. Food was also very good. Only downside was that the place was partly under construction so there was quite some construction dust.

    Very chill and mellow hostel. Incredible views and quite the experience. Not the place to go if you want luxury accommodations, but if you're looking for an outdoor experience with a good family dinner in the evening, this is the place to go. Perfect starting point for Tayrona National Park. I would love to visit again.

    Loved staying in the jungle with amazing views! Has a nice little walk up that’ll get your blood flowing but nothing crazy. The food at night was delicious and cost 15,000-COP a night - it felt like a dinner your mama cooked for you! The beds were comfortable. Hostel is clean considering it’s a jungle hostel. Lots of bathrooms and showers to use. It’s about a 20 min walk from the entrance to the Tayrona park. The Monkey Trail is a lovely walk to get to the beach. Thanks for the great stay!

    Journey Hostel has a nice atmosphere, the rooftop is amazing and offers views to both the mountains and the sea. The staff is very friendly and helpful and they organize trips in the mornings and afternoons each day, that you can join if you like. Also the beaches of los angeles and los naranjos are at a walking distance of 10-20 min each. I was missing a common kitchen and fridge though, which would be nice to have as an option. They do offer food at reasonable prices, nonetheless.
