A good location and large well-kept outdoor areas make Las Casa de Felipe one of the nicest hostels I have stayed in. Three levels of common spaces give you many choices to socialize or for a solo retreat. The 3rd floor terrace has great views and a lovely breeze. Rooms and common areas are well maintained and clean. Nice staff,...

We stayed here for a night before heading to Parque Tayrona. The room was affordable and very clean. We had an AMAZING meal of filet mignon for ~$12. The fresh fruit juices were delicious, too. The staff was helpful and friendly. We booked our boat to Cabo San Juan del Guia through the hostel. They let us leave our big...

The garden is great and the food is amazing. Something you wouldn't expect of a hostel. A really nice place to stay before and/or after your trip to tayrona or for a party night (because honestly, there isn't much reasons to stay in taganga otherwise). Very chilled out place!

I stayed here the first time for a whole week, just because the staff is really friendly, makes you feel at home, the bar area is nice to socialize with fellow backpackers, and the food is amazing. The french chef Dominique cooks 5 days/week, his filet mignon is world-class quality. You're allowed to bring drinks from the outside which is...

La Casa de Felipe was my favorite hostel in Colombia. It has a great design with a nice open patio area, plenty of hammocks to rest in, and an awesome lookout/loft on the top floor. My 6 bedroom dorm was great. The bathroom was big and there is a shower that is separated from the toilet. There is a restaurant...

This place is an amazing place to stay in Taganga. The rooms are nice and clean and the food was always great, especially the various jugos. The terrace with hammocks is a very relaxing place and paradise like area to relax. From here you have easy access to Parque Tayrona. Highly recommend this place.

+ Great hostel, with friendly and helpful staff. The food and natural fresh juices are excellent. In the courtyard and at the rooftop terrace are many hammocks, which makes this place a little paradise. A charming place.

Casa Felipe was a great hostel for us, somewhere we wished to stay much longer. The staff were friendly and helpful (particularly the bar and kitchen staff who let us pay a day later when we ran out of cash!) and the rooms were big and clean. When you come off the boat from Tayrona, all you want is a...

A nice hostel with cool atmosphere. The small courtyard has hammocks, tables and a fountain, and they have two lovely cats. The restaurant of Chef Dominique cook delicious plates, a little expensive, but it is worthwhile (my fillet mignon was fantastic!). The bar had a nice tender making delicious natural juices. They have guest kitchen and luggage storage (nice, if...
