    Reviews:

    • The location and people are amazing! It can be hard to find the beach, but really worth it once you are there.
    • The location was the most beautiful place I have ever been. So private and untouched. After the hike there taking a dip in the sea was perfection. The staff were very friendly and helpful despite my terrible lack of Spanish. Couldn’t recommend enough my only regret was we discovered this place quiet late and could only book 1 night definitely would be better to stay 2 or 3 nights.
    • The beach is stunning to look at.
      The bungalow was clean upon arrival.
      Other than a few holes in the mosquito nets (that you should tape up upon arrival), we appreciated having them. Location was windy which helped minimize mosquitos.
    • The hotel has an amazing view, the staff was very helpful and nice at all times.
    • The beach and the place it self are really Nice, but unfortunately they did not take a good use of the space.

    • This is one of our favourite hostels in South America. It has a welcoming, friendly, homey vibe. There’s a few outdoor/indoor chill out areas that are really nice and comfortable. The location is great, close to Tayrona and on the river. The kitchen is big and well-equipped. Dorm is spacious with comfy beds and a balcony. Overall we really loved this place and wish we could have stayed longer.

    Reviews:

    • Just 20 minutes away ( by bus ) from the main entrance of the Tayrona National Park. Vegetarian menu, which is appreciated when you have traveled for a while in Colombia. Jorge and Paola are both great cooks and easygoing. Jorge gave us some very helpful tips to reach our next destination. The place in itself is very beautiful, with a stream nearby. Great music choices, at least to our taste.
    • Amazing location!!! Staff are incredible. Jorge and Paula go above and beyond to make sure you are well cared for. These amazing beings are what the world needs more of.
    • Very clean and quiet gem in nature and despite easy to reach by bus from Santa Marta and to Tayrona entrance. Lovely people and delicious vegetarian/ vegan food. The sheets are very nice too, very comfy bed. Totally recommend
    • Wonderful location, knowledgable and very nice staff! Very confortable rooms.
    • The place was very cute, right by a lovely little creek and falls, and just a 15 minute bus ride away from the Parque Tayrona. Buses pass right outside the hostel every 20 minutes or so from early morning until 6pm. The place feels a bit old and rustic, and from the rooms, at night, you can hear the trucks and cars on the highway outside – which sort of breaks with the “lost in the forest” feel of the place. The vegetarian food was good. I still recommend for a practical location near the park, some peace in nature, and as a good way to disconnect. Hosts were really lovely, and very helpful when I got sick. You must know – there is no internet from this location.
