This hostel is pretty good. It had nice big rooms and is not to expensive. The staff is very nice. The offer breakfast, though not included in the price. Rooms come without ac and don't have warm water. Wifi is okay and did reach the first floor. They have a couple of places to hang out and a nice terrace...

I recently spent 3 nights in Taganga over the New Years period. For 25,000 COP a night in the dormitory it is reasonable. Two things to keep in mind, the wi-fi rarely reached our 2nd story room so we had to go to the lobby if we needed to use it (wi-fi in Taganag is not all that good anyway)...

This was the first place we stopped in and it was perfect, no need to look at other hostels. We went with the A/C room for extra comfort. The breakfast was affordable and delicious, came with coffee, tasty juice, eggs and toast (actually toasted!) The owner Olga was wonderful and understanding. We stayed the first night and then decided to...

The women who owns and runs the hostel is amazing! Cannot say enough good things about her. We were there of Columbus Day weekend and the music at the bar next door was turned up the entire way. Even with ear plugs, it was difficult to fall asleep. One night (we stayed 3 nights) the music played through the night...

It was a good experience. The service was okay, the facilities were clean and tender. The only thing I didn't like was the bathroom because the toilet didn't flush. I stayed at room 302 on the third floor.

This was the first place we saw when we got off the bus and this was where we stayed for our too short, 5 day, stay in Taganga. The location is great, one block from the beach, the staff great, the rooms were good and very good value for money. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to come back...

Good place to sleep. Not far from the beach. Good breakfast, maundry service and nice staff. Wifi works fine we stayed on the second floor. Cold water but that is not a problem. Foreigners have to stop complaining about not having hot water all the time. Here in south america, in hot climate places you take a shower with cold...

I've been there with my wife for 2 days and we stayed 1 week. This place is very good to chill and enjoy taganga. It's close to the beach and the owners (Olga and Oscar) are very kind. Rooms are cleaned everydays.

The staff were very friendly, the rooms are clean and quiet. I had the best time, 1 minute walk from the beach. and it right next to the police station, so we felt very safe. There is to much things to mention. I would recommend this place to anyone, a family or a couple or a weary traveler.!!
