Property Description

Encanto Hostel is a unique property situated amidst nature on Colombia's Caribbean coast. Our accommodation options include private and shared rooms, common areas, and a river-facing terrace, offering guests an authentic experience. Our goal is to provide our guests with a comfortable and unforgettable stay while exploring the natural beauty that surrounds us.

We are located in Mendihuaca, a beautiful area just 45 minutes away from Santa Marta. Our location allows guests to enjoy the tranquillity of nature while still being close to nearby attractions like Tayrona National Park. Our target audience comprises tourists seeking to appreciate the natural beauty of Colombia. We want to inform our guests that Encanto Hostel is in a natural reserve. To help preserve this beautiful environment, there is a one-time entrance fee of 5,000 COP (approximately 1.5 USD) per person. This fee provides access to the enchanting "Poza Encantada," a hidden gem worth exploring during your stay, and helps contribute to the conservation of this pristine area.

Our rooms feature private balconies overlooking the river, daily cleaning service, and high-quality bedding for a comfortable stay. Additionally, we offer our guests access to the river, Wi-Fi, and free parking in front of the hostel for added convenience.

As a reminder to our valued guests, please be aware that due to our remote location surrounded by natural beauty, internet access at Encanto Hostel can be limited at times. We encourage you to embrace this opportunity to disconnect from the digital world and immerse yourself in the serenity of our natural reserve.

amazing hostel. The property itself is so beautiful and serene. the most friendly dogs and cats greet you and keep you company throughout your stay (if you want them too, theyre all very respectful animals). Set right on a scenic and peaceful river you can swim in, and filled with lush plants- you immediately feel grounded. Howard is a great host and the staff are all so welcoming. Food is top notch and afforadable. Social atmosphere as well, met some super nice other backpackers during the stay

The owner is a very sweet person who is very polite and accommodating. The hostel is very well designed and maintained. Vast spaces in the rooms, bathrooms, relaxation deck, dining area. The Poza encantada is also a hidden gem. Recommended for a tayrona park visit. I just wish breakfast was included.
