I stayed here the first time for a whole week, just because the staff is really friendly, makes you feel at home, the bar area is nice to socialize with fellow backpackers, and the food is amazing. The french chef Dominique cooks 5 days/week, his filet mignon is world-class quality. You're allowed to bring drinks from the outside which is... More

La Casa de Felipe was my favorite hostel in Colombia. It has a great design with a nice open patio area, plenty of hammocks to rest in, and an awesome lookout/loft on the top floor. My 6 bedroom dorm was great. The bathroom was big and there is a shower that is separated from the toilet. There is a restaurant... More

This place is an amazing place to stay in Taganga. The rooms are nice and clean and the food was always great, especially the various jugos. The terrace with hammocks is a very relaxing place and paradise like area to relax. From here you have easy access to Parque Tayrona. Highly recommend this place.

+ Great hostel, with friendly and helpful staff. The food and natural fresh juices are excellent. In the courtyard and at the rooftop terrace are many hammocks, which makes this place a little paradise. A charming place. Every day From 4.30 - 8.30 pm a special tourist information desk is open were they offer tours and organize your transport. We... More

Casa Felipe was a great hostel for us, somewhere we wished to stay much longer. The staff were friendly and helpful (particularly the bar and kitchen staff who let us pay a day later when we ran out of cash!) and the rooms were big and clean. When you come off the boat from Tayrona, all you want is a... More

A nice hostel with cool atmosphere. The small courtyard has hammocks, tables and a fountain, and they have two lovely cats. The restaurant of Chef Dominique cook delicious plates, a little expensive, but it is worthwhile (my fillet mignon was fantastic!). The bar had a nice tender making delicious natural juices. They have guest kitchen and luggage storage (nice, if... More

Stayed here for two nights. Highest spot up on a hill in Taganga which gets you great views. Rooms were standard, lots of hammocks and spots to hang and watch ocean. Best part was the French chef who cooked amazing and affordable meals AND the homemade juices at the bar.

It seems to be common among costenos that they dont smile or appreciate your business. However, we were not shown around, we were not told hello, we were over charged, the place was dead, the walk up the hill was very sketch, the internet was not great.... They also dont speak much english which normally doesnt matter much but the... More

The hostel is awesome: there are plenty of social spaces, a bar with a beer storage all day long and a restaurant with yummy food from thursday to sunday. Rooms & common spaces are very clean, outdoor areas are very beautiful. What's also quite important for Taganga - there's constant water supply in the hostel (there's a shortage of water... More
