I stayed a week here and have many great things to say - the environment, the food, the vibes, and the staff are top notch. The ladies who work the front desk are wonderful, the kitchen staff are super friendly and talented! and Ricky, one of the bartenders, is THE BEST. He puts up with silly drunks all the time... More

We loved our time at Casa de Felipe! We stayed in a private room with bathroom and we couldn't fault it. It's a few mins walked up the hill from the beach and away from the hustle and bustle - I would say it's definitely worth the walk. It's a really chilled hostel with lots of different areas to hang... More

Awesome hostel with nice clean rooms with small lockers, big clean bathrooms with towels and so many places to hang out! Awesome rooftop, hammocks all over the place to lounge, many tables to have dinner and drinks, big kitchen with great cooking facilities. They have a wood burning BBQ for your use or you could order food and drinks from... More

we spent 3 nights in a studio room. I have to say that usually I'm not an AC person but in Taganga it's rather necessary. The room had only a good ceiling fan but it's just wasn't enough since the sun strikes all day- especially on the balcony. So basically the room was great, but we couldn't enjoy it during... More

Amazing Place in Taganga. The terrace on the roof is very cool and have an a great view of the bay. There's a full kitchen available so you can bring your own food or eat at the restaurant. Breakfast are very good. Free Wi-Fi Definitely the place to stay in Taganga

Best steak in all of Colombia. Casa Filipe was a great base from which to explore the Taganga area. Rooms were nice but basic and the staff were often a bit disorganised and not super friendly but we were happy with the value and the fact that you could leave your bags there while you explored. And did I mention... More

The dorms were ok but a little awkward - the shower was perfectly visible from the staircase. Unfortunately, the front desk had messed up my reservation despite a written confirmation and I had to leave after one night instead of two. The front desk merely displayed a cavalier attitude and didn't bother to apologize. I found a much better and... More

Second time straying here, each time the staff are amazing and the food superb by the wonderful Dominique. They staff are so helpful when checking out to go to the lost city or tyrona and there are loads of lockers / a luggage room to keep your stuff safe when you leave. Great experience!

Fillet mignon - this is a reason in itself to stay here. Absolutely delicious. Hands down the best meal I had during my one month stay in Colombia. I swapped the potatoes for the fries (recommended). Although relatively expensive at $18,000 COP, it is so so worth it. The food aside, the accommodation was good. Nice, big clean dorm rooms.... More

One of the best hostels I have ever visited. It is very large and spread out with hammocks, tables, a rooftop patio, a large kitchen, a bar and a great restaurant. Even if you don't stay at the hostel the restaurant is worth a visit. They will book any tours/bus tickets for you and there's laundry next door. The hostel... More
