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 out with a really nice room and even offered us a discount.
They were happy for us to move to a cheaper room in the morning. The ladies in reception are friendly and funny.
We stayed in another hostel a few days earlier but this one was cheaper and had a better atmosphere.

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 to the National Park and stayed there instead. This wasn´t a problem at all and I didn´t have to pay the night in the hostel. They also helped me out when my bus just left without me and organized another bus for me...Highly recommended!!!!

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 staying in a small Colombian town:)

Instead of taking the staff recommended bus to Tayrona Park - I recommend you take a speed boat into the park. Cheaper, quicker and more fun:)

Hit up El Mirador at night for some fun dancing!!

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 down here in the casa.

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 juice bar onsite, where they provide breakfast and lunch everyday. Offered four night, the dinner menu is particularly special with the French chef cooking delicious cuisine (beef mignon, ceviche) at great prices.
The staff are personal, helpful and very professional. The amenities are great, large kitchen, tv room and spacious double/triple/dorm rooms that cater for all budgets.

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 our last day with superb views of the bay and the constant wonderful background Colombian music rising up from the village. The setting is attractive, with a garden feel and as the buildings are built into a hill there are lots of different levels.
I wished one night there had been a Quiet policy as our room was near the public area and the partying went on till daybreak.. Apart from that a terrific place to stay. More Hotel than Hostel .

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the public area's
