Property Description

Our hostel is located on El Almejal beach, one of the most beautiful beaches on the Pacific Coast of Colombia in El Valle, Chocó, a small town near Bahia Solano (45 minutes in Tuk-tuk or car). We are a 25 minute walking from town which can be reached at any time and where you can buy all necessary amenities. The hostel lies right between the jungle and the stunning Pacific Ocean. You can therefore walk right onto the beach from hostel or around our garden and surrounding jungle and immerse yourself in the local flora and fauna. We have lots of areas to rest and relax where you can lie back in a hammock and enjoy the sounds (and view!) of the ocean and jungle mixing, creating a unique experience.

We have three shared rooms; two six bed dorms and one four bed dorm. We also have a private room, the ‘Pelican Suite’, which has its own bathroom and shower. All the rooms have a view to the jungle and the sea and small lockers to save important stuff. There are two shared bathrooms with showers in addition to an outdoor shower used by guests when returning from the beach. In The Pelican House all guests have access to a fully equipped kitchen to cook your own food. We also have a bar where you can purchase beers and spirits. We also have a library where guests are welcome to borrow books and a projector which we often use for movie nights. In our garden we have fruits, vegetables and herbs that we share with our customers.

We have excellent contacts with local tour operators who we know and trust; The tours range from whale watching (June to November), watching the turtles lay and hatch their eggs (August to January), bird watching, taking a boat trip to Utria National Park where you can tour the mangroves and do snorkeling, taking a day trip inland to visit indigenous communities, trekking to one of the many beautiful waterfalls nearby and many more.

So, finally who are we? We are an italo-colombian couple with four dogs and two cats! Come and be part of our family!

    Amazing hostel on the beach in El Valle surrounded by the Chocó jungle. Great owners, volunteers and their pets they live with. Around a 20 minute walk down the beach to the pueblo of El Valle. Would love to stay here again if on the Pacific Coast and would recommend 100%.

    Amazing hostel. The owners Daniela and Emanuel are super helpful. They are very willing to help you to organise tours etc. All the tours they recommend are fantastic, with very good guides. The vibe is really good, the communal area and kitchen facilities are very good. Definitely recommend it.

    Perfect ten. Stunning facilities, perfect location, lovely owners, great atmosphere where everyone chills together in the night and the staff is super helpful with information (S/O Daniella). Do remember to bring your own food, as there is only one, slightly expensive restaurant nearby. Will def be back

    This place is amazing. Also Daniela and Emmanuel are so kind and they care about the kind of tours for yo i.e. they advice to you about the best options between price and quality. No one do that, but they did with us and with all the guests

    The energy from the hosts and other guests was awesome. People were sociable but not aggressive. Hosts had many activities to chose from during the day, and from our research were priced the best too. The only option for eating here is to cook, as the hostel is 20 minutes from town, but the kitchen was big and well equipped. Bathroom got dirty quickly even though it’s cleaned daily. The rooms were pretty simple- soft mattresses, mosquito nets and small lockers. Would definitely stay here again!

    I'd recommend this hostel. - common kitchen to cook - you see the ocean and if you are lucký - whales - really nice stuff - good books, card games - outside showers after swimming in the ocean - you are allowed to use herbs from garden / lemons are for free - work together with whale biologists However, eventhough i'd recommend this hostel 100 %, Daniella, please change the second bed on the left side: my whole back was biten by bed bucks. And one toillet more would be great for the dorms.
