This place is great. It's a good location to access Tayrona Park and they organize this for you. Has a good upmarket backpacker feel. The cabaña we stayed us was excellent. The pool is great for kids (and adults alike). Very friendly staff with great service. The restaurant too is great.

This place is just beautiful. It's located close to the Tayrona Park so that you can use it as your basecamp when you don't want to stay in the park itself. The whole place offers several houses mostly for two people and all of them are fit in the surrounding nature perfectly. Eco tourism is really taken seriously here and...

A peaceful hostel within an idyllic setting just a short walk from the entrance to Tayrona National Park.

Highly recommend staying at this hostel if you are...

This is simply the most beautiful hostel I have ever been to. Great accommodations, beautiful pool, and wonderful restaurant. You could spend several days there without ever wanting to leave. Would visit again!

Excellent location, very friendly owner, peaceful, quite. We stayed with my husband for 2 nights and hiked in the Tayrona National Park during the day. It was one of the amazing stops during our honeymoon road trip in Colombia.

Good customer service! Good food, you need to try the Chicken gratinado. Nice pool and excellent view from the restaurant. Great breakfast. The owner will give a ride to the main entrance of tayrona park. In The backyard they have a small trek easy but perfect

When searching and deciding on Yuluka, I had my reservations as normal when trying something new but upon arriving I said, this is great! As close to being in the jungle and together with nature. The room I stayed in was wicked. The only one with an outdoor shower and bathtub! The deck, with its two hammocks and small table,...

Stayed in this wonderful hostel as a base from which to explore tayrona and go on to do the lost city trek. Fantastic accommodation (especially in the cabin at the top) and great food. The owners are very helpful when planning a trip into tayrona or beyond. We were very sad to leave!

We stayed one night after leaving Tayrona National Park. They offer a free pick up service for guests that was prompt and delivered us 2km down the road. Room was clean and had great balcony. The ceiling fan was barely working , so we found it very hot at night. Meals were underwhelming and far less fresh/tasty than in the...
