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.

This hostel is very close to the entrance of Tayrona. Very easy to get there. The double rooms are very big, and have an outside bathroom. (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

we had a great stay at Eco Hosta Yuluka, it's so close to Parque Tayrona, there's a bus stop outside to get to Santa Marta, the owner is very helpful and provides a free transport to the Parque and the pool is a great place to cool down after all the hiking in Tayrona. The restaurant onsite is handy and... More

The place is unique and clean. The noise from the trucks did not let me sleep at night. my children got eaten my mosquitoes, since there was only a mosquito net, repellent did not do much. Breakfast is always the same. Owner was advised of some other flaws. El local es espectacular, todo muy limpio, pero hay que protegerse de... More

Yuluka hostel is very cleverly placed right next to entrance to Tayrona NPP, close to the Lost City and Palomino beach. It’s really pretty place, that offer everything for travellers. Swimming pool, morning lift the park and great facilities: Kitchen (pretty well equipped, washing machine). The breakfast is included and very tasty. As everything else, that is cooked in the...

We stayed just two days at this place, but regretted that we couldn't stay longer. This hotel is just beautiful and there is so much to do around it. The owners will give you a good overview about what to do and where to go. Further, they have a decent restaurant with a great food choice. We would come back... More

We absolutely loved our stay at Yuluka. I stayed here with 5 of my friends in one of their 6-berth cabins. The beds were all comfortable and our cabin was located right next to the lovely pool which was great. All of the staff were so friendly, the owner Carlos was always keen to help us to plan day trips... More

We just checked out of the Yuluka yesterday, after a three night stay. The online photos of this property were impressive, creating a real "jungle" appearance. That said, the photos dont do it justice: it's much more impressive in real life! The owners have done a great job in creating a truly unique property- the cabins, pool, and restaurant area... More
