Liked: Generally an OK place. Nice building, bar, swimming pool. Has a TV room.

Disliked: Low in atmosphere as very few people staying there. Pool was a little dirty. No ladders on bunk beds. Poor security (no locks on front door, room doors and no lockers at all in the rooms - small lockers in reception). Advertised breakfast for COP7,000 but then said not avaliable as not enough people staying there. No A/C wgich is not uncommon but a real shame as the rooms are so hot.

Liked: El hostal es el lugar perfecto para descansar despues de un viaje. Taganga es un pueblito con un magia que te atrapa y te muestra la vida en el caribe colombiano. La Tortuga tiene todo para pasar los mejores dias de descanso y diversion. Un staff como ninguno...desde su dueña Mona hasta Alfredo, Diego, Keyla, Diana y Guido(Los chicos del bar) y las señoras de la limpieza te hacen sentir como en casa desde que llegas. El hostel tiene una cocina ampla, una piscina para darse un chapuzon cuando el dia esta muy caluroso,Tienen un deposito para guardar tus maletas mientras estas en Tayrona o Minca. Las hamacas en la terraza bar tomando un mojito y contemplar un atardecer lo mejor. Lugar perfecto y pequeño para conocer a otros viajeros. Definitivamente debo volver a La Tortuga. Solo esta caminando 3 minutos de la playa! super central.

Liked: Nice hostel looks like a big modern bamboo hut. Bar on top of the hostel has very nice view. Dorms are clean. Staff is helpful and speaks good english.

Disliked: It is located at the end of a small street wich doesnt feel safe at all if you want to walk back late at night. Most hostels in this town have a swimming pool . La Tortuga have a small plastic one wich seemed dirty when I was there. With the heat I would have liked a proper swimming pool. Also, the hostel was very quiet at the time I was there, not so much of a party place. Nice if you want to relax.
