Property Description

Hostel is LOCATED IN BONDA, NOT IN MINCA. (but next to it). Bonda is a beautiful destination full of nature and local life. Its similar to Minca but not nearly as congested. You will be able to surround yourself with a quiet, relaxing atmosphere, an off the beaten path location. Here we also have 2 super cute and friendly dogs and 2 cats.

As the name suggests, we wan to be the perfect option for people that want to find a place where they can chill in the hammock reading a book all day, or just have a quiet talk as you see the sunset from our beautiful rooftop.

A special destination for travellers who enjoy nature and ecotourism and want to relax and explore the green mountains and the crystal clear waterfalls of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. Bonda is a perfect destination for ecological treks and adventure travellers.

The area is surrounded by beautiful mountains and nature paths, the few settlements in the area make for a great relaxation opportunity, top that with the availability of trekking routes, multiple rivers, waterfalls, and horse riding to make for a great getaway experience.

Long stay discounts available.

    WOW! A quick retreat in the mountains turned out to be one of the BEST experiences in Colombia. TPTB is the perfect getaway from Santa Marta& a more local and genuine experience from Minca. Miguel &Luis not only were amazing at hosting us but quickly became friends. You should go on bike to Poza del Muerto where you swim in tranquility. The billiards place down the street you can learn to play Bonda style billiards + also have empanadas they sell early mornings! CANT WAIT TO GO BACK! BEST HOSTAL

    the place to be is a really great hostel with nice and helpful staff, great and clean facilities and great hammocks. the overall atmosphere was very positive, the fellow guests very nice people. just the fact that the pool was not working was a downer, and with view to the remoteness of the place it could have been a little cheaper.. but on the other hand it's a very nice and clean hostel, so definitely worth it!

    Awesome hostel! The staff is so friendly and so helpful. If you have any questions they are more than happy to help you out, they are willing to go the extra mile to make sure your stay is enjoyable. The location is away from the busy city so it is very relaxing and quiet, however transportation to and from the hostel is very accessible. The only thing is the wifi isn’t very good which can make planning for your next journey a little difficult.
