Ecohostal Yuluka was great! My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights.The staff was great - the gentleman / host speaks English (well enough to communicate basis) and the waitress was fantastic (didn't speak much English, but remembered us every time we sat down, and remembered our orders from previous meals). We had a private room with a TV... More

Yuluka was a great spot for us to make our home base for Parque Tayrona adventures. Absolutely beautiful place. Super clean. We traveled over New Years eve as a couple and I cannot say enough how nice and accommodating everyone was at Yuluka. As it was a national holiday, we thought we would have some difficulty getting around, but the... More

This was a beautiful place to stay and we felt very welcome. The staff were very friendly, the hostel was very clean and comfortable. We were even given a courtesy upgrade on our room. The cabanas are some of the nicest I've stayed in, very light and airy and beautiful features all with their own balconies. The swimming pool made... More

The rooms are big and clean. The hotel has a little swimming pool with a slide to either relax or have fun. It is very secluded so it has a restaurant that serves all meals. Home made typical breakfast was absolutely worth the stay. The owner, Wilmer, was always making sure that we were satisfied, he even drove us to... More

his was the first hostel, we visited, that was really clean and looked quite like a hotel instead of a hostel. The kitchen was well equipped and clean. The staff is really friendly, Summarizing I would advise this hostel to anyone and likes it calm,, since you won't find any parties there.

Located about 40 minutes bus ride outside of santa marta. But because it is just one kilometer from the tayrona national park entrance the location is great. It is just next to the busy road to Palomino but the noise didnt bother me at all (as you can read in other reviews) the hostel is beautiful, clean and the food... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and thought that it was really good. Nice big comfortable bed, big balcony with 2 hammocks and a pretty good shower. The breakfast was pretty much your standard fare of eggs. A relaxing place to stay.

The food is amazing, the people are helpful and nice. It's really close to Tayrona and they have a special transport to the park, the hostal is new everything are clean and I love he food. The Internet is bad but it doesn't a meter if you're a real backpacker, you have a great panoramic of the mountains.

(With a view of Sierra Nevada) The pool is nice to relax at the end of the day. In the mornkng or afternoon you can see monkeys around the hostel looking for fruit! The... More
