Casa Felipe is truly a unique hostel. It is one of those places that you can take a break from the chaos of back packing and relax for a few extra days.
The large garden area makes it possible to hide away from everyone if you want to just lounge in a hammock. Or, if you are traveling alone its easy to meet people.
Rooms were cleaned every day and facilities are kept clean and functioning. If there was ever a problem, staff would correct it as soon as it was addressed.
Staff were amazing. Friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about the area (great directions on how to get to Tayrona).
The French restaurant served delicious food that we couldn't get enough of.
They have created an amazing atmosphere where both foreign back packers and Colombian families on vacation can share a communal space in harmony.
Location is great as it is away from the noise from the down town bars. Apart from the occasional rooster or dog barking ( get used to it,,, its South America... they are everywhere!) its a quiet location.
I would recommend this hostel to anyone and everyone :)
