Hostal Casa Jamaica
Ranked #26 of 72 Specialty Lodging in Taganga
Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

The best hostel beds in Colombia, singles are nearly the size of doubles and are super comfy. Don't go for the hammocks though as roosters will keep you awake from the break of dawn. Great pool, chilled atmosphere, helpful staff, and a soon to be completed Mexican restaraunt are all selling points!

Stayed: April 2014, traveled with friends

Me and my boyfriend stayed for 3 nights in one of the private rooms. It was around $12 a night which was great value in comparison to other hostels in Taganga. It's clean but rustic and a great place to hang out for a few days. Everyone who works there is really friendly and you feel very at home. I didn't want to leave. Thank you casa Jamaica!

I personally enjoyed very much the laid back atmosphere at Casa Jamaica, with excellent pool parties during the day, big beds to stay over night, a fridge filled with nice variety of beers and cool staff to help you out, this was my place at Taganga, Colombia! Thanks again guys, you were the best!

Room Tip: dorms are fresh and and the beds are big enough, but if you want go for the best get the suite, with...

Casa Jamaica is a really enjoyable place to stay - rustic, cozy and relaxed. Dorms are comfortable and beds are great. The place offers a great value for the money, especially the private room with a nice view over the sea. Recommend for a good time!

I think the sheets were not changed after every customer. kitchen is really dirty and poorly equipped. sometimes annoyingly loud music and the same songs over and over again. the owners seem nice but do not seem able to really run the place.
