“Undoubtedly the best and loveliest place to stay in Taganga no question.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2011

Casa Holanda is a beautifully new white walled hostel/hotel only 15 seconds from the beach. You will not find staff so friendly and helpful, rooms so sparkling clean or food tasting as good as it does in the hostel's restaurant anywhere else in Taganga. It's also an economical place to stay as a delicious breakfast is included in the price where you have a choice of either eggs, granola, pancakes or a local delight. I'm not one who normally write reviews, but feel the need to let other travellers know that Casa Holanda is probably the best place we have stayed in South America, and for those of you on a budget you certainly get value for money!

This hotel has the best location, the best staff, a great little setup with the bar and restaurant on the front and all the cute little rooms in the back and the rooms are a great price, but...I hardly slept a wink the three nights I stayed here. There was no AC in my room and I had to keep my curtains drawn because people were walking by my windows all of the time, looking right into my room and so it was hard to get a breeze going in my room, but the main problem was the noise from the three or four or five discos all within a block of the Hostel that were at it all night long and then at an ungodly hour the roosters would start up...it was really a nightmare. And I can't tell you what the pillows were made out of, but they were the lumpiest sacks of whatever it was...and the bed was super, super hard. Also, I could never get the wifi to work at all on my mac.
But, I loved the people and I loved hanging out on that porch.

Friendly English-speaking staff, reasonable rates, no hot water, air conditioning if you pay extra, but it only runs 8 pm to 8 AM. Breakfast included but often opens late, a problem if you have early morning activities.

We changed our previous hostel (La Tortuga) for Casa Holanda as it was much better and cheaper. We paid 65000 COP per night for 2 pax, breakfast included. The room was very nice, though not big - 2 beds, little table, 2 chairs, 2 shelves and a little bathroom. No hot water, but it's normal. The rooms are cleaned and the towels are changed every days. The breakfast is pretty fine - you get the choice tea/coffee, scrаmbled eggs with onion and tomato/scrambled eggs and local 'arepas'/cereals with fruits/pancakes with fruits + juice. The Casa Holanda cafe is also good and cheap to have a lunch or dinner. Almost noone of the staff speaks English, except the owner - but he is very nice and is always ready to help.
It's a little bit noisy in the night but I think this is normal for Taganga itself.

Casa Holanda is a slightly higher end hostel. I had heard that it was difficult to find somewhere clean with helpful staff in town but this place ticked all the boxes. I would certainly recommend it to others looking for somewhere in Taganga.
