An excellent hostel which is a 10 minute walk from the main square where busses to Minca drop you off. A little bit of a climb (especially with a large backpack) but well worth it once you get to the hostel as the views of the surrounding mountains and the lights of Santa Marta is incredible. Everynight the hostel staff... More

This is definitely the best hostel I stayed in on my year travels through Latin America. The people who volunteered there were really nice. The food was awesome. The view was beautiful. I had a really nice time here. I slept for a week in a hammock and one night in a dorm bed. The dorm bed is off course... More

We had a really good time here. The view is great and the food is excellent. The ambiance is quiet and not too rowdy. It's a place where you're able to have an early night without people partying and keeping you up. The hike up is quite a hike, so be prepared! And there's no wi-fi, which is kinda nice... More

After almost 20' walking from town until the hostel up in the hill, we were tired and realized that besides the view, there's nothing else to do upstairs in the hostel. The place is nice but a bit overpriced considering that in town you can find more options, brakefast included and more other facilities. There, you can't use the kitchen... More

In case it bothers you, be aware that each night many people smoked drugs (although a sign was posted saying that people should not do that). Each night many people got drunk and talked into the night. Bring earplugs if you're sleeping in the main area and you would like to get to sleep before 2am. The markup for using... More

We prefer to accept cash but we offer the service of accepting cards with the service charge. Please bring cash if you wish to pay less. Drugs are prohibited in the hostel. We have... More

Amazing views, friendly staff, delicious food and a great atmosphere in the hostel, really conducive to chatting and chilling. Would have loved to have stayed more than our 2 nights. Would recommend to anyone (it's worth the hard trek uphill!)

Casa Loma is basically just dreamy all round. Yes you have to climb up quite a few stairs to reach it but the view from the top is so amazing it's worth it (and means you get to watch beautiful sunsets every single night!) It feels like living in a beautiful treehouse, lots of hammocks and chill out areas so... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night, I wish we'd had longer! We arrived on a very hot day, there's a bit of a hike up to the top of the hill but once you reach the top all is forgiven! The hostel itself is a giant tree house will a few dorms, hammocks and private rooms located... More

So there were four of us staying in Minca. We didn't have reservations ahead of time but when we arrived they were able to put two of us in hammocks and two in cabins which worked out. After viewing the campsite we really enjoyed it and wanted to book an additional night. We requested four hammocks next to each other... More

Hi, Thanks for coming to Casa Loma. We are glad you enjoyed the amazing views but sorry you found the place un organised. With the mix up with the reservation this is understandable. Having investigated this it seems there was a communication mix up perhaps due to language and it was not clear you were coming back the next day... More

Que maravilloso lugar para desconectarse del mundo! Vas a estar muy en contacto con la naturaleza y los servicios son cómodos y la comida sana y rica. La subida por las escaleras es algo desafiante pero la impresionante vista lo vale! What a wonderful place to disconnect yourself from the planet!
