Hidden behind its walls is a welcome surprise that belies its outer urban setting with nearby local transport and amenities. Once ensconced within its walls you're greeted by cheerful staff who can organise various tours into Park Tayrona and Ciudad Perdida.
It has a good range of facilities including wifi & computers, a swimming pool, hammocks to laze in, a restaurant serving excellent pasta dishes as well as tasty tiramisu for dessert, and lots of tropical cocktails to sample at the bar during 'Happy Hour'. Dorms are good value with A/c and bathrooms are clean, although the cold water combats humidity, it would be good to have more showers as there was a bottleneck of people waiting for the showers in the morning.
During my stay renovations were in full swing which made the atmosphere less relaxing than it probably usually is, but a hearty mix of travellers made the nightime socialising lively.
