We enjoyed casa de felipe! Nice place with hammocks and Rooftop place with nice view. Only the chicken kept us awake during the night. No hot water - but you dont need it! Luggage storage for free during your lost city trail (dont miss this!!!!)

This hostel's best feature is definitely the great restaurant. For what you get, the prices are really fair because the food is delicious. The restaurant is open Wed-Sun. They also have a juice bar that is open every day. If you stay at Casa de Felipe, you definitely have to try the jugos! Edgar isn't the most friendly guy, but... More

I have been travelling for the last 5 months, and found this hostel to be one of the best I have stayed in. I was only intending to stay in Taganga for 3 days, but ended up staying for an additional week. And the main reason... is because I found this gem. For me it really was a home from... More

Pros - fantastic common areas - has charm - big, thereby easy to meet people - nice mix of guests (nationality, age) Cons - location, while the town is not big at all, Casa De Felipe is at its upper edge, so the walk to beach and the restaurant-strip is the farthest you'll walk in Taganga. Admittedly only 10-15 minutes.... More

Casa de Felipe is a lovely hostel, though I wouldn't spend too much time in Taganga itself. The hostel is set around a pretty, large courtyard with several tables and hammocks to relax. The rooms are a decent size, very clean, comfortable and quiet. Reception staff are very friendly and helpful, though the bar staff can be a bit less... More

My husband and I stayed at Casa de Felipe for two nights. When we first checked in the staff was helpful. The room was ok and the bathroom too. There was one wall damaged with water causing fungus. When we went to have breakfast we could not get it charged on our account, but had to pay cash. We still... More

Casa de Felipe is one of the best hostels in South America.The only thing missing is swimming pool, The rooms are big, nice kitchen and restaurant with great food. Staff was very friendly as well. My only advise is not to walk alone there at night as you might get robbed as me!

Casa de Felipe was really a great hostel for the price! They had a great french chef who came to cook on weekends and had a good breakfast option as well. It was worth the hike up the hill away from the mail street on the beach. Pros: - good food ( a bit expensive though) - nice accommodations -... More

Bit of a climb up the slope to get to the hostel and sometimes can feel a little bit unsafe, I wouldn´t recommend walking it alone at night but personally I had no problems and I walked it alone sometimes during the day and with some friends at night. Staff are very friendly and my room in a shared dorm... More
