Hospedaje Casa Blanca
Reviewed 8 January 2014

We enjoyed our 7 day stay in this hotel although the rooms are fairly shabby. It is located at the beginning of the main beach area so the crowd noise is significantly less here than other accommodations. We thought the staff were very nice, including the small restaurant just outside the entrance, although that is a separate business.

Rooms are very basic: oscillating fan in the corner; queen bed that was comfortable but the linens didn't fit properly and came loose at night; cold water only; no shower head; sink plumbed without a trap pipe so there was always a hint of sewer smell; only furnature is a tiny nightstand, a small plastic table and two plastic chairs; no hooks, so your clothes have to stay on the floor.

Despite these downsides, the proximity to the water, pleasant little balcony, great top deck with a nice breeze and beautiful view of the whole Taganga area, smiling, friendly staff (little English though), common kitchen area with a good fridge, decent though weak Wifi and a very secure feeling made our stay here quite pleasant.

We paid $60 plus tax during the high season, so it doesn't qualify as a bargain.

Room Tip: Avoid the third level as there is more noise and less privacy due to the kitchen.

Right on the beach with great views of the bay! The rooms and building itself is in desperate need of a facelift. For what seems like a small investment this place could really be cleaned up nicely. We had a safe experience but only spent one night here as it felt a little dirty and there was no wifi. ($30/night for a double room)

The place was clean, the room was large and cheap for what it offers, the balcony absolutely stunning with a wonderful view on Taganga beach and the Caribe, especially nice considering you can watch it from a wide and comfortable hammock just outside your room... they also have lovely breakfasts and jugos, and you step out of here just in the sandy beach of Taganga... I don't understand bad reviews about this place, as it was one of the best hostels I've ever found

we were there in 2010. i couldnt find it on trip advisor at the time...

the room was ok.... but thats not the problem with this place....

the staff were a bit rude. the next door neighbor is one of the local drug dealers and also connected in some way to the hostel. Between them they entered our room and the room next door via the shared balcony, in the early hours while we were sleeping and took our bags. we were all then woken at 6am by the bloke working in the hostel to be told that we had been robbed at about 4am. the neighbour saw the thief running away over the roof. 'luckily' for us the thief dropped all of the non-valuable items in and around the hostel neighbours house! so he was very happy that he was able to be so kind and help us by giving our things back!

Thankfully they dont want to nick credit cards, passports or clothes, so thats what we got back. no sign of the money, cameras or sun glasses though.

we never worked out why we were robbed at 4am and not told until 6am ... but it was probably because they took a long time to divide all of our stuff equally between them.... minus a cut for the police of course, so did show up, listened to the story and then left.

Room Tip: one in another hostel.

we chose this place cause its right at the beach with nice views from the rooms, nice hammocks... It was 25000 per person or, if alone 40000 pesos per room and worth it. It's very basic but the really friendly staff will help you out with everything you need. It felt safe for us and the people were very tolerant with waking up for letting us in any time even when we arrived back at 4 am ..
Better location than all those famous hostels which are all way more up and far from the beach
