    One of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed in. The views are absolutely amazing. The staff is incredible, very engaging and friendly especially Rachel who went out of her way to make sure everyone was enjoying themselves. The food was great and a good value. The hostel offers a lot to keep you busy and it is in a perfect location for Parque Tayrona.

    Such a great chilled out hostel. Nice open air cabanas for the dorms however you can hear the road noise. Staff are great! It’s a perfect place to stay before or after Tayrona :) family dinners are also a big plus!

    Great location if you’re looking to go to Tayrona, it’s just a 15 minute walk to the entrance. Staff were very friendly but the free breakfast is just store bought granola and milk. Would stay here again if I was going back to Tayrona.

    Staff is amazing: I have no words for this people. Even the owner is so kind and nice. The facilities are wow, The Journey Hostel is one in a million hostels. The view from the rooms worth everything. The bar and the cocktails too. The only cons I have to say is: no hot water and breakfast is only oatmeal and coffee (for free). But that's it. The food is simply delicious. Amazing work 💚

    Hostel is great, but they overcharge for food. I also stayed in the private room for 3 days and they never cleaned my bathroom. I also didnt have any wifi in my room. The views were fantastic and the staff is great. Easy commute to Parque Tayrona, Palomino, and Santa Marta

    Well! The place is truly amazing! However; the staff is in a complete disarray! everything is run by unpaid employment. Make sense why there is such a lack of training! So everybody, gives you a different answer, Also; what stroke me the most! Everything is on a tab! Including your accommodation! Upon the checkout you will receive 6% additional card charges! Which I later find out that is only 3%! And there is no wifi! 0.8mb speed doesn't even come close a reasonable wifi connection!
