Really liked this hostel, the climb up is a killer but is worth it when your sat on the sunset terrace having a cocktail. I slept in a tent as that was all that was available, which wasn't the most comfy but was my fault as I booked last minute. Really enjoyed the family style meals, and a few beers... More

We stayed in casa del sol, essentially a bed in a hut. It was lovely but 65,000 seemed like a lot. All bathrooms are shared and have cold water only. The food is super yummy and fairly priced. The staff is great and the hostel is full of info to help you do stuff in Minca. Be prepared for a... More

The title says it all really: I stayed here for a couple of nights last December and loved the place! I have stayed in the Ecohabs and Casa Elemento in Minca in the past, and this was my favourite (budget) accommodation option by far. Positives: - The view is spectacular and the sunsets from the deck are unreal - Great... More

My 14 y/o daughter and I stayed in the treehouse. We had our own porch with a hammock and rocking chair. Amazing view from the bed, overlooking Santa Marta and the sea. The food was good, with dinner served family style providing a great chance to meet other travelers The shared bathrooms were as clean as you'd expect. I enjoyed... More

I think the biggest problem was, that we expected just something else. We expected good vegetarian food and a very nice and comfortable place. Thats what happened: First we got a room over the kitchen and the lounge. The walls of the room are not closed, so theproblem is, everytime when somebody from the chill out area or the lounge...

Thanks for coming to casa loma. Sorry you did not enjoy it in the way you had hoped. When staying 4 nights somewhere you are not so happy it would always be best to speak with one of the owners / managers while there. Thanks for your comments about the toilet bins filling up. After reading your comments, during high... More

Casa Loma is a truly unique and amazing experience. The team who run the hostel are legends and are very helpful and friendly. The food is of a high end restaurant standard and for the price you will not find better. We stayed in Casa Selva which is a new rustic jungle hut with its own massive timber deck looking... More

Cash loma is a pretty serious number of steps up the mountain, while still be close to everything. It was basically under an hour hike to most attractions (aka waterfalls and coffee farms). We stayed in a private hut overlooking the mountains. Awesome! And the food was exceptional for a good price. Tons of hammocks, inviting environments, and great views!... More

This hostel was a little tricky to find at first as we did not realise that we had quite a steep 80m climb up with our back packs to get there. That being overcome, we found our room to be with a beautiful view,and a verandah to ourselves with a table and chairs, despite having no electricity at all. The... More
