    Beautiful hostel in the mountains of Minca! Casa el Recuerdo had a great relaxed but fun vibe and was easy to access off the main road. It is a bit of a hike to reach the hostel from the city of Minca, about 1-1.5 hours walking or 20-30 mins on mototaxi. The staff were great and super friendly as well as the other guests. It gets very cold at night so best to have warm clothes. Really enjoyed the stay here and in Minca.

    Great up-and-coming hostel in a peaceful location far above Minka. The dorms were comfortable (and had mosquito nets, which I appreciated), the view was beautiful and the food and beer was very reasonably priced. The staff in particular were excellent. It's pretty rustic - cold showers and a long walk to the nearest shop - but if that's not what you're into, you probably shouldn't be coming to Minka anyway.

    An awesome hostel with so much potential to be to be one of the best. Staff were great and incredibly friendly making you feel welcome. The pool looked insane unfortunately it was being refilled during our stay. Some of the facilities were a bit worse for wear but worked fine. With a bit of more work it would be awesome.

    So staff is really friendly and take into account that its a new place and youre in the jungle. The natural pool/building looks really cool. Besides that i can only Think of negatives - the beds were awful, mosquito nets didnt work whatsoever, no lockers, its far away from everything but not far enough to have a good view of the mountains or santa marta. The facilities are nicer on the hike to Ciudad Perdida than here. I would say spend more money for a place further up the mountain or in town

    A beautiful location in the middle of the jungle.. although hard to get to ( either trek up or take a motortaxi..12,000 CON ), it's a perfect get away. BRING HEAVY BUG SPRAY! And do not drink the water. The hostel and staff is wonderful. Very relaxing environment. Only down side is that thee is no communal kitchen. It's a new hostel so I'm sure that will change soon. Wish I knew this before going, but am still happy with my stay(:
