I stayed more than 2 weeks in Republika Divanga. I was in a double room comfortable and clean (3 fans inside the bedroom: Perfect!).I read on old other comments that hostel is quite dirty. It is not true. Hostel is cleaned everyday. We had a good price as we stayed longer. Staff is great and helpful. Customers from Republika can...

If you are looking to have a nice place to hang in between diving, Divanga is perfect. There are 2 locations - this one which is cheaper and simpler, and one a block or 2 away that's a Bed & Breakfast with nicer accommodations and a pool for a higher price - stay at either one and you can use...

This is a great little hostel, with all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay in Taganga. We stayed in a private room, which was clean and comfortable, and the pool / hammock area was great. The bar serves good food and drinks, and is a nice place to play a bit of pool and look out over Taganga. It...

This hostel was a wonderful little safe-haven to come back to at the end of the day after exploring Parque Tayrona. The rooms were clean and the restaurant was excellent, plus there is multilingual staff and great service at both the restaurant and for anything else you could need. The common areas are lovely with plenty of hammocks, a pool...

Very comfortable stay in Divanga casa, found the staff friendly and helpful and particularly enjoyed relaxing in the hammocks after my long Lost City walk. Quieter than some party hostels, but that suited.

They are doing construction work. Maybe when they aren't it's a nice place. But when you're trying to relax in the hammock and are interrupted by an obnoxious drilling noise it makes you wish you had picked another hostel.

Hello Fortunately the works will be finished soon But I am surprised that you critisize this if you knew when you took the dorm that we were building! I recommend more honnesty from your part the next time you accept to stay in a hostel where there is construction! Regards, Lucie
