“Lovely Hostel, lovely staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

I stayed at Divanga B&B and I had a very positive experience. The staff is always willing to help and the food served in their restaurant is great!

After making the check out and heading back to Cartagena, I realized I had left my ipod there. Lucie, Divanga's owner was really quick to notify they have found it and arrange the shipment to Bogotá.

If I get back to Taganga I am likely staying at Divanga's again.

This was a great hostel! Clean, inviting, social, helpful staff, solid breakfast program, hammocks, pool, internet... I confidently left my large backpack in the locker here while I went on a hike/bike excursion with Elemento. ($45/night for a double room) Not the cheapest hostel option but completely worth it!

We has a great stay, good service and it was nice hanging out by the pool though it wasnt super clean. Great WiFi. Good food, excellent fruit drinks. Friendly people, good service. A bit more expensive than average. Go for a room with an AC as the fan room gets too hot!

It was a very nice hotel great pool and awesome rooms.
Had cockroaches, but other than that the room was very clean.
Breakfast was very tasty and lovely.
Great staff.
A bit expensive but worth the money. I recommend taking a room with airconditioning.

We stayed here for 5 nights, and found the place comfortable, the staff very friendly and inclusive, and the food great. The ceviche there was so good, I had it 3 times. It also felt really safe, the staff very honest about how dodgy Taganga has become of late, and gave us good advice. Defiantly a great place to stay. Good brekkie too, though water pressure wasn't great.

We stayed at this place by accident as our first choice was fully booked... but we were very pleasantly suprised.
On the bus from Cartegena to Santa Marta I left my (beloved) hat.. I assumed it would be long gone but the staff at Divanga were persistant and tracked down the company and driver and finally my hat for me.. smiling the entire time!
The hostel itself is pretty. Wifi, a pool and an option of AC and breakfast included in the price. The location is 5min walk down to the beach but a walk we were recommended not to do at night.
Overall lovely staff, good breakfast, nice pool and close to the beach.

Lucie welcomed me with a smile and gave me the rundown on Taganga. The place is well decorated, has a nice small pool, and the food is amazing. I had a great stay here for maybe six days while I went diving and down hill mt biking. If you go to Taganga, this is a great spot!

Room Tip: Choose a room that has a window to the inner courtyard vs outside. The locals tend to get a little...
