“Excellent Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

It started off with a 2am arrival, 15 hr bus turned into 20 hour bus trip (arrived from Medellin), had exchanged a few emails the day before, as was trying to work out which one to stay at either Divanga Or La Masia summer hostel, once arriving the decision was easy, i got service right from arriving at 2am, they were expecting me since i had tentatively booked by email (Lucia was the only one that replied to emails, the other hostel still havent heard back from)!

We had originally booked the hostel, but had been upgraded to the B&B, which was great especiailly after the long bus trip, (got upgraded as the hostel had become full, and i hadnt made an official booking yet, however as soon as i saw our name pencil'd in the book to arrive i knew this was going to be a great spot,)

There are 2 locations the B&B with an amazing breakfast or the hostel, and guests can use either facilities at both properties, the pool is amazing at B&B

Price - its def worth paying $2 more for the B&B - the hostel is 20,000 / plus breakfast is 6000 if you want it / the B&B is 3000 which includes breakfast

Lucia, is a great person, we been travelling for 1.5 months, and this is the nicest hostel owner we have meet, she has owned it for 6 years, helped with everything from booking tours to booking buses, Ullien was great to with all last minute questions
(i will say book the boat yourself you can get cheaper)

Great place, great service, also has a restaurant amazing food ! and large portions, and a nice bar

Room Tip: The only negaitve is the showers is a single stream of water, nothing else to fault

There are two places of Divanga and we stayed nearer the beach or the office for booking tours.
We were still given access to the one with the pool tho :)
I liked this place better coz I find thst it is quieter of the two and had more hammocs to lounge about.
Things I think worth pointing out:
(+) tv and dvd.player you could use.
Night security guard/staff
The owner of the place also gave us a discount as it is the low season ++++++!!!

(-) no coffee, just some free coffee in the morning would really have gone a long way.
The only hostel that we stayed in Columbia that didnt had free coffee. So I find it strange but not a deal breaker.

Divanga B&B is a haven in Taganga. The staff, pool, bar and restaurant make for a very relaxing time. Lucie, the owner, is always on hand to see how your day is going, provide you with information about the area and help arrange any trips. Breakfast was delicious and the restaurant provides very tasty dinners. It would be very easy to while away a week or so here, lying in a hammock and enjoying the refreshing pool.

Taganga is an exceptional place to base yourself out of to do stuff like visiting Tayrona, the Lost City Trek, countless day trips around the varying beaches, heading up to Minca and of course getting some diving done.

Divanga B&B can help you organise everything. We barely lifted a finger to organise Tayrona, diving and a trip to Minca. But it doesn't end there. Taganga can get seriously hot during the day so there's nothing better than heading back to Divanga to simply sit around the pool and enjoy a drink. We ate a handful of meals around town but found nothing compares to quality and portion size of the meals. The kitchen is absolutely superb; and pretty cheap considering often there's promotions meaning you can save on meals. The included breakfast is great too..

WiFi is nice and quick. And the bar upstairs has a great view out to the bay and is perfect to sit around at the end of the day and enjoy the sunsets at Taganga. Really friendly and accommodating staff who all speak great English. Rooms are comfortable and there is no A/C but there's plenty of fans and we slept really well.

Very highly recommended.

There's not much I can write about Divanga that hasn't already been written. It's a wonderful little place - all the benefits of a hostel without the intense party atmosphere that often comes with it. Instead, you'll find a relaxed, friendly place full of relaxed, friendly people.

The rooms are basic but have private baths and very strong ceiling fans. There's only a single sheet for the bed, but it's never cold in Taganga so it's more than enough. As others have noted, there's no air conditioning, which will bother you for the first day and then you become accustomed to it. The lack of aircon also encourages everyone to sit in the courtyard, where you can make friends. I don't typically talk to many people in hostels but I found myself making lots of friends at Divanga - the type of guest who stays there is much more laid-back than your typical hostel guest.

Taganga is a very quaint town but it can also be a bit dusty and very hot, so the swimming pool and hammocks are a welcome relief. Lucie, the owner, makes a point of meeting all of her guests - she is as dedicated as they come. The rest of the staff have varying levels of English proficiency but they always smiling, and you can practice your Spanish with them while they practice their English with you!

Finally, the food from the onsite restaurant is stellar. There are plenty of places to eat in Taganga but nowhere as good as this! Even if you don't stay at Divanga, come by for dinner at night and get ready for a feast.

Room Tip: Try to get one of the rooms in the rear of the complex if you can. There are a few rooms that are r...
