What a great hostel! Rooms are clean and tidy, beds made daily. Each room has own bathroom and you have a towel included! Hostel is small and intimate, not too many guests. Chill area is nice. Great that you can use the facilities of divanga b&b, pool/bar etc. Kitchen is fully equipped. Plus great additions of free coffee and water...

I stayed in Republika for a couple weeks and it was amazing! Super clean, really helpful staff, you can go to the other divanga and use the swimming pool/bar/restaurant. The hostel has a night club open on the weekends, but you cannot hear anything from the rooms, speaking of, they have the most comfortable bed ever! I highly recommend staying...

This place is the pinnacle of chill. Taganga is a super quaint fishing village outside of Santa Marta and Divanga is situated on a "main" road higher up from the sea. It's a great location and it's conveniently associated with the social club next door which serves great food, has an amazing bar and always is a buzz with people....

We stayed here for a week. It was awesome. The staff are so friendly and helpful, Joyce is a legend. The social events are great, especially the poker and the big party on the Friday night, it goes hard. Food is also excellent as are the facilities, especially considering the price. Free water and coffee are an added bonus. Free...

We recommend staying at this hostel as it was in a good location, had clean facilities and at a great price. There is a sister hostel up the road where you can use the pool and hang out in the bar area. The owner is friendly and helpful, she recommended a few good dive centers to go diving which was...

I stayed in a shared room in Republik Divanga and I found it great for the price (21.000 COP per night). They have nice common areas (hamacs, big kitchen) and a little discotheque where you can party until 5 or 6 am (if youre in the bedrooms you wont hear the noise). In addition, you can use the pool in...
