Liked: Cute little place for those who want to avoid the noisy hostels nearby and want to relax before of after the trek. The back yard is lovely, the rooms are nice. There is a kitchen free of use and the landlord gave us a lift in his very old car (bless!) to a restaurant. So friendly.

Disliked: The showers are cold like every where else. The other girl working there does not know anything about anything.

Liked: price ok

Disliked: In the morning we arranged to stay another night in the morning and the lady checked that there was room and when we came back in the afternoon the after going to the doctors she told us that our room was booked and we had to leave! I found that this was really bad as the staff knew that I was unwell and had been told we were going to stay and cancelled our reservation for a larger group. I now have to find knew accomodation whilst sick with no notice!


The property's response is

Thank you for your comments, unfortunatey there was a misunderstanding from the beggining of our staff, because we did not have availability the same day. Once we notice the mistake, we find and paid for a room in another hotel in Santa Marta city with AC as was needed because of sickness. The customer told us everything was ok there and he was trying to change the review but was not able to do it yet.

Liked: the kindness of the staff (all 2 people). The air conditioning. The kitchen was great. The mattresses were new and very hard so the man changed my mattress for a softer one that had been used. This was a wonderful act of kindness. The hostel has very little business so it may not stay in business very long. I would not recommend people staying here if they speak no spanish and want specific tour information.

Disliked: The neighbors up the hill were having a 2 day fiesta when I was there so I was not able to sleep or read in my room because of the loud continuous music. The older man living in the hostel spoke no English and was not able to communicate with me in simple spanish. He had no information to share with me when I arrived about Tayrona Park or boat rides to various beaches from Taganga.. I had to wait until morning to talk to the receptionist, who spoke very little English but was helpful.

Liked: We loved this lovely hostel, very clean and warmful, colombian staff welcoming and helpful, the place and the staff has a very positive energy! For that reason we stood quite longer than foreseen and I recomend it completely, very valuable for the money! I will definitely go back there when I come back to Taganga!

Disliked: The only thing that could be improved is the kithcen. The hotel has been renovated lately and the kitchen remains uncomplete. It is possible to cook but not in the best conditions. that shall improve in the future.
