This is simply the most beautiful hostel I have ever been to. Great accommodations, beautiful pool, and wonderful restaurant. You could spend several days there without ever wanting to leave. Would visit again!

Excellent location, very friendly owner, peaceful, quite. We stayed with my husband for 2 nights and hiked in the Tayrona National Park during the day. It was one of the amazing stops during our honeymoon road trip in Colombia.

Good customer service! Good food, you need to try the Chicken gratinado. Nice pool and excellent view from the restaurant. Great breakfast. The owner will give a ride to the main entrance of tayrona park. In The backyard they have a small trek easy but perfect

When searching and deciding on Yuluka, I had my reservations as normal when trying something new but upon arriving I said, this is great! As close to being in the jungle and together with nature. The room I stayed in was wicked. The only one with an outdoor shower and bathtub! The deck, with its two hammocks and small table,... More

Stayed in this wonderful hostel as a base from which to explore tayrona and go on to do the lost city trek. Fantastic accommodation (especially in the cabin at the top) and great food. The owners are very helpful when planning a trip into tayrona or beyond. We were very sad to leave!

We stayed one night after leaving Tayrona National Park. They offer a free pick up service for guests that was prompt and delivered us 2km down the road. Room was clean and had great balcony. The ceiling fan was barely working , so we found it very hot at night. Meals were underwhelming and far less fresh/tasty than in the... More

The idea of waking through the Park for an hour with my backpack and then sleeping in a tent didn't really appeal to me that much so we decided to stay in El Zaino near the entrance to the Park. I'm really glad we did. To me it was the best of both worlds, you can go to the park... More

This is a very nice place to stay - lovely rooms perched on the side of the hill; very comfortable with private baths and balcony with hammock. Food and service top notch. Lots of wildlife around and totally peaceful during the day. At night the nearby road can be problematic as many buses and trucks go by. Suggest you bring... More

I struggled finding a place in Santa Marta that didn't cater to either Australian bros or richer older people- what about us somewhat nerdy 20 and 30 somethings that want to stay somewhere nice and meet other people without having to be in party hostel? Eco yuluka was a good in between! It's beautiful with an awesome pool, nice restaurant... More

Yuluka hostel is very close to the entrance Tayrona national park. The staff are really nice and friendly. The owner gave us a simple instruction of the Park and the hostel when we arrived, made us feel very welcome. He also gave us all the information of the transportation to Santa Marta airport. The Cabana is Super comfortable, nice and... More
