El Hostal me pareció hermoso, los precios son muy buenos, si es un poco alejado del mar pero vale mucho la pena hospedarse ahí ya que las habitaciones son limpias, cómodas y el servicio en general y la comida es EXCELENTE. Muy recomendado, definitivamente volveré allá.

The hostel is really beautiful, the prices are very good, it is a bit away from the sea but it is well worth staying there, The rooms are clean and cozy and the service and the food is EXCELLENT, i will definitely be staying there again.

This was for me the most relaxing place in Colombia. The ambiance is really good, no party hostel, every dorm has its own toilet and bath room, enough place and hammocks to relax and easy to meet nice travelers. The french chef serves really great food and the bar makes nice juices.

I really enjoyed my stay Casa de Felipe. I took a studio room, which had 3 beds, private bathroom, mini refrigerator, kitchen and a balcony. We were 3 friends staying here, and for me it was the perfect stay. Each morning, we prepared breakfast in our room, at lunch, after my diving session i would use the place for having a light lunch and rest. The room is big and comfortable, there is no hot water in the shower, but this is the case in all hostels in Taganga, besides you don't really need a hot shower in Taganga. There are nice coomon areas, for breakfast and dinner, and a TV room etc for everyone. Except for the fact that it doesn't have aircondition in the rooms which is not easy and that it is 10 min. walk from the beach ( the center) it is really nice place to stay. I would highly recommend this place.

Clean, with nice showers! Clean bed with powerful fans. Just perfect after Tayrona park. Good restaurant with great coffee. Not cheap, gringo prices, but worth it. Noisy hostel, so bring earplugs. Lovely balcony in my room. It's a few blocks from town, but town is nasty with a filthy beach. I much preferred hanging out in hostel's comfy clean hammocks, on the top deck, and outside in the tree garden with fighting cats. Nice place!

Room Tip: It's all noisy. Must bring earplugs.

Overall this place was very good. The best thing is the atmosphere in the hostel. The top terrace is an amazing place to hang out for sunsets and for drinking a few beers. The kitchen is well equipped, but several of the cooking stoves weren't working which caused some waiting for everyone who wanted to cook. It's a little bit outside of town, but you get used to the walk pretty quickly.

Stayed here for nine days. The hostel has a great set out. The top terrace is great for sunset views and a beer. Kitchen was good but the stove did not work which lead to crowding and waiting. Great smoothies. DVD system and TV room was awesome. Restaurant was a bit expensive considering

this hostel is very well known by backpackers doing the gringo trail...the location is good, a bit far (up in the hill) from the main restaurants, beach and grouceries but is quiet and relaxing, the hostel is nice, hamacs everywhere and outdoor spaces, they have free charge mini lockers( bring your own lock) with space only for your passport and wallet but al least is something, our room had also a secure box but took the staff girl half hour to let us know how to use it...the atmosfere was quiet during the afternoon...lounge music playing but at night they started playing electronic music so the chill area wasn´t chill anymore...our room was right next to the restaurant and we were worried about the noise but no what a sorprise...the fan in the room was louder than the music! rooms are very hot, even with the fan and the windows have no mosquito net, only a curtain so mosquitos are around and you need to set the fan full speed so the noise is terrible...the price was too expensive for the value...if you take time to look around there are plenty of hostels better than this...if you are looking for backpacker atmosfere is a good choice i guess...we arrive late and stayed in a double room for 45000 and the dorms where 20000 per person (dorms look nice, no bunk beds so is a plus) but the next day we found a better option, villa esther, closer to everything and very quiet with a dorm just for ourselves with fan and aircon for 30000!
