Mauro, Sophia and Alonso(and all others) made a super job, they helps u with everything! The spirit is super nice! There is a sweet cat. WiFi is fast, the food is amazing! It's Everytime clean and the mat is perfect to find a good sleep. The beach is just 5 min far away. U can made some activities with the hostel (diving, tour to tayrona, minca and to some nice beached). I wish I can stay longer, for month!
The hostel building looks pretty good outside and inside. There is a big, common kitchen, and kind of living room/ playing room with hammocks that are perfect to relax in. I like a lot that in the hostel the trash is split into recyclable and non-recyclable. The hostel is situated 10 min on foot to the Taganga beautiful beach. The staff is very friendly. You can ask them how to get to an ATM or some trustful restaurant. The room had basic equipment - bed and closet and was clean. In some rooms, there is also an air conditioner. There are restrictions when you can use A/C (only in the evenings) but from this what I noticed, in this part of the country, it is very common.
There were no toiletries in the bathroom but were mentioned in the offer. The electricity was down twice during one night (in the whole Taganga because the supplier has some problem with lines) so there was a small problem with charging phones.
Villa Mary is a friendly laidback hostel with a nice communal area. The hostel has had new young Brazilian managers since mid December 2019 - they are friendly, welcoming and helpful. The previous manager/owner has let the hostel run down a bit - many of the lockers in the dorm are broken (they use key locks not padlock hasps), no shower heads. The free breakfast is fruit, eggs, toast, juice and coffee. Shower water pressure is ok Aircon in the dorms is good, as are the curtains at night the room is pitch black. My dorm (room 1) had two en-suite showers and toilets between 10 beds. Not sure about the other rooms. Diving courses are very cheap in Taganga
The bunks are quite short and some a bit close together, no privacy curtains Towel rental is 4,000peso Taganga beach is not a particularly beautiful one.
My husband and I stayed at this place three years ago and totally loved it so we decided to come back. The administration has changed but the new managers are very nice and accommodating as well as the former ones. We loved the sense of community in this place and the welcoming atmosphere. Breakfast was also good. We will definitely stay again if in Taganga.
Chill atmosphere, good breakfast, and friendly, helpful staff!
Nothing to complain about :)
