This hostel is a little walk up the hill from the beach but is an excellent place to stay. The rooftop terrace is a really cool place to hang out. It has excellent food cooked by a French chef. We were stuck without a hostel as we came back from Tyrona a day early and Casa de Felipe helped us... More

La Casa de Felipe is a perfect place to stay...The facilities are very good, the french chef made the best food I had in ages, all the shops and bars in town are reachable within 10min of walking and the staff is super friendly. I booked for three nights and spontanously decided to skip the second night as I went... More

Casa de Felipe is a really well maintained little compound in Taganga. The onsite juicebar (and bar) and kitchen were great and the staff were helpful and friendly. Very well run. A good mixture of young fun crazy travelers as well as older travelers staying here. Tips: Roosters may wake you up a little early but thats what you get... More

Casa de Felipe was recommended to me a while ago prior to my travels and for a very good reason. It has excellent service in addition to its professional french chef and delicious fruit shakes, if you ever plan to get to Colombia, this place is a MUST! You get your money's worth and much more, time seems to slow... More

La Casa de Felipe is a superior hostel and restaurant. Located 5 mins away from the Main Street, you will find this beautifully designed hostel. Set amongst the hills the buildings are across split levels. You feel like you have escaped and found a hidden hideaway with beautiful gardens, hammocks and great views. A main drawcard is the restaurant and... More

Our room was attractve, spacious and clean, the ensuite had a great shower. The reception staff were delightful. There are two levels of breakfast available and 3/4 evenings a week the chef cooks superb french style food, which is a change from local cooking. We were so busy exploring we didn't discover the upstairs relaxing area beside the kitchen until... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and massively enjoyed our stay. Staff were super helpful, beers were cheap, food was AWESOME, and room was great and well priced. Small walk to the beach, but keeps it quiet and would definitely recommend staying here again!!!

One of my favourite hostels in Colombia, Casa de Felipe is a wide open terrace with water fountains, hammocks, deck chairs and an open roof where you can get a great view of the coastline. They also have a great selection of movies, a chilled out tv room (with a fan) and two great cafés that serve great food and... More

This place is huge, but it still has a chilled vibe. Nice clean rooms (both dorms and privates). Lots of places to relax, hammocks everywhere, central courtyard to socialise, rooftop terrace to chill and check out the views. Nice food (if a little pricy). Helpful staff. A little bit of a walk from the main part of town, but only... More
