The staff are so friendly & approachable, they are the reason I wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Minca. Having the free breakfast & coffee on the balcony in the crisp, cool morning air was so freshening after spending so long in the stuffy heat of Cartagena, Santa Marta etc. Free filtered water & the dorms being pretty cool at night were also huge bonuses for me. The property is showing it’s age but it kind of adds to its character.

Mainly a great experience with one downside. The hostel was beautiful, the nicest we’ve stayed in so far. The bar had a good atmosphere in the evening. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Downside was the private cabana with private bathroom. We discovered it was very damp, bedsheets and clothes got damp. This was due to being next to the river. Would stay again but in a different room/ less nights in the cabana

Hostel that seems secluded but close to town! Yes, pool has bugs in it but I mean, you’re in the jungle so what can you expect? Our room was surprisingly cozy and comfortable for it basically just being a shack thats open to the elements. Food was alright, staff were so kind and welcoming and Dobby the dog was so adorable. Breakfast was good but not enough food. And bathrooms upstairs near the lobby were nice and clean!
