Stayed one night there and it was very good. Friendly staff and good breakfast at the bar in the garden. At the reception there is also a lovely cat. Our luggage stayed one day when we went to Tayrona and after return we had lunch at there restaurant with good food.

I heard good things from a guy in my dive centre. I had been staying in another hostel, but visited him in case de Felipe & it was so fabulous that I moved! The staff was always very friendly & willing to help me with my travel plans locally & throughout Colombia. The dorm was spotlessly clean, tidied every morning.... More

My friend and I recently stayed for the weekend, and it was just great! The place itself doesn't feel like a hostel, but rather, as a visit to your relatives; so to speak. Also, the stuff is very nice and friendly. I'd totally stay there again!

The hostel was great. Clean, fair prices and.comfortable beds. Dorm prices are around 25000cop per person or private rooms for a bit more. Nice restaurant, good music, hammock zone and a roof with a nice view. I would definitely stay there again

We went diving in Taganga and therefore stayed in Casa de Felipe. First of all, the rooms are nice, spacious and clean, the property itself got a chill vibe and staff is friendly and helpful, however the windows can't be closed in the rooms and there is no mosquito nets so each of us checked out with around 60 mosquito...

I stayed at La Casa de Felipe 4 weeks due my divemaster course and I really enjoyed every single day. The Hostal is in a panoramic posoition with a nice view from the mirador. The area is calm and is possible to have a very good rest. The room was comfortable and the cleaning service always good and on time.... More

A large hostel about 400m from the town/beach area, easily walkable but what sets this aside from the usual hostel is the size of and setup of the communal areas. They have a great mirador with views out over the bay of Taganga plus a multitude of hammocks around the hostel to just lay back and relax in. I've heard... More

Nice rooms (no bunk beds in the dorms which makes a big difference in the heat), with properly functioning ceiling fans. Super helpful and friendly staff. Good facilities (kitchen, TV room, hammocks and deckchairs on a mirador with views of the bay). A little out of town (maybe 500m from the beach), but when it's 2am on a Saturday night... More

Great hotel with good view of tanganga bay. Top terrace has good views for sunset. The hotel would be amazing if it had a pool. The only thing that they are missing is a pool. Regardless it is still a great option to stay at in town. Great value for price.

Nice hostel. It felt like if your on a villa from the owner and it doesn't felt like a hostel. Very nice garden. Very nice lounge area,view from the city. I stayed here 1 night. A Colombian guy from the Netherlands recommended me this place. Taganga is a little bit boring. Take earplugs with you. The dogs can be very... More
