5.0 Okay
Pros: - Victor at the reception was a great help with his excellent English - Breakfast is good - there is a nice and spacious terrace
Cons: - San Marcos was by far the worst hotel we had on our round trip of Colombia, but far from being the cheapest - the room for the four of us was tiny, there was only on shelf, no other furniture except for the beds - the bathroom was tiny, too. Adults had to sit on the toilet almost sideways - our shower didn´t work and even worse, staff probably knew about it - on checkout, which was quite early, we almost weren´t allowed out, because they didn´t immediately find one of our towels

10.0 Excellent
Pros: I didn't have the breakfast, but all of the food and drinks I had were amazing. Chef didn't mind altering some dishes as I am vegan and wanted a curry! Hostel itself has a beautiful outdoor area, with pool and beautiful trees. Hammocks and chill out areas were super. All staff and volunteers were friendly, helpful and couldn't do enough for you. Pool area and rooms were cleaned daily.
Cons: Wifi would cut out sometimes (not for more than 5 minutes) but I believe this to be a Taganga wide problem and not the hostel itself. Was never a problem for long.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: The included breakfast is really nice, the staff is amazing and really friendly. I could stay there all day after check out, use the showers, the barbecue, everything. The hostel is really big with a lot of hammocks and different areas a which makes it a great space to calm down, chill out and be alone for once in a while. Still, if you want to, you can easily socialize. The rooms are big and spatial and with lockers, toilet and shower separated.

Pros: Staff, common area, location
Cons: There is nothing to complain about casa felipe. It is a low budget accomodation and for that price really good. The rooms are simple and they clean it every day and give fresh towels. Whats special about this hostel is its common area. There is a kitchen (didnt use it though) and a great outside area. The staff is super friendly and sweet. The food is not really a highlight bit you can go out to habe diner or lunch. I would go there again, it is a 5 or 10 minutes walk from the center but nice and quite!

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Hospitality of the owners, being able to stay and use the facilities after check-out, amazing view, very calm and many hamacs to chill, great food.
Cons: Beds are not very comfortable. As other comment mentionned, don't go if you're not in a good shape or if you have a luggage (which is not a backpack). Not ideal if you plan to party as well.
5.8 Okay
Pros: We loved the actual location of the hostal, great views, but the climb to get there was horrendous. Swimming pool is great, large enough.
Cons: The lady running the place is moody and does clearly not enjoy her job at all. She is moody and everything you ask her seems to much trouble. She shouts your name and then you have to come running to get your food. If you don’t hurry she gets very irritated. Her daughter (?) is no better. The lady who helps at breakfast time and cleans is very nice. When we arrived after the horrible climb with 2 kids the lady demanded our passports. A more friendly welcome would be better, let us at least catch our breath! Our room was not cleaned during our 3 day stay. The toilet paper bin not even emptied, disgusting. The swimming pool does not have a (working) shower, and they demanded we take a shower in our room prior to swimming, not very nice to have to walk wet in your room, and a bit weird. The climb is truly gruelling. No path, just a dirt rocky steep path and quite dirty too. We walked it once a day with kids, doable, but take your time!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The view, the staff, the dog Rocco and the breakfast - everything was amazing. Such a lovely place! The AC room is incredible and worth every cent.
Cons: One night we spent in the non-AC room and it was unbearingly hot - so we slept in the hammocks outside, which was perfectly fine too...
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Be aware it's a bit of a walk (5 min) up a steep road where no cars can go, but the views and being away from all the noise makes it totally worth it! Lovely views and pool, nice room with AC.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It’s a very nice place with a beautiful view of Taganga, the breakfast was excellent and the hostesses were super friendly
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Food Service Views There are no. Mosquitoes (at least for me)
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The hostel itself is very beautiful and relaxed. Amazing view. Staff is very kind. Great spot to do some diving activities; about 10 min walk to the beach.
Cons: The way up to the hostel is kinda harsh, very steep. With suitcases difficult.
7.1 Good
Pros: The two women who ran this place are very nice and accommodating. The view is spectacular and worth every cent. The food they make is delicious and the pool is a refreshing end to the long climb uphill.
Cons: The beds were very firm and hard to sleep on. Also, this hostel is located up a VERY steep hill that takes 10 minutes to climb in the hot humidity. Do not stay here if you are not physically fit or don't want to climb a big hill to and from your hostel.
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: Nice view from the hotel.
Cons: First of all, the host must control more her emotions. She is very emotional and her mood can change in a second. It’s completely unacceptable taking into account that we are clients who pay for our stay and not just her guests. She tries to be nice, but when there are any kind of issues, better to stay away from her. We paid for the breakfast on check in. The next day, she forgot that we had included breakfast and started discussion on this topic.. later on, when she discovered her mistake, she apologised. The day after, we came to the breakfast at 9:30 and there was nobody. She came unhappy complaining that she thought that we wouldn’t come for breakfast as it’s only till 9:45. We heard how she was talking to the other clients.. it wasn’t nice. One boy asked her if there was possibility to wash his clothes. She even didn’t listen to him and answered: “I DON’T SPEAK ENGLISH”, and boy just went away... The main issue was the quality of cleanness. Room wasn’t clean.. there was dust on the floor and bed, and there was hair on the bathroom floor. Both mornings forks and knives for the breakfast were dirty. So better choose to eat in the village. Wifi was very slow. Veeeery slow. It wad ok only in the common area. Better to not choose this place if you have lots of luggage because even for guys it’s not easy to get up to the hotel. No shampoo, no shower gel, just soap.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The AC room was incredible, the whole house is super clean and we loved Rocco the dog! also the pool area is beautiful to relax!
Cons: nothing

9.2 Excellent
Pros: We love the view of the beach, also, it is a good place to have access to many places: tayrona, beaches close to the hotel. The hotel has a good bed, the room is a bit small, we doesn’t stay to much time in the room in Taganga.
Cons: This hotel the water of the shower is always cold. Please, we expect to have hot and cold water in the toilet. Also, add more food to the breakfast.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is in a beautiful setting with a lovely view and the village of Taganga is still unspoilt. However the road through the town to the hotel at the moment is quite bad because one can't pass through the waterfront. The restaurant is good. Just 15/20 min walk past the hotel is the famous Playa Grande. On WE it's quite full with Colombian turists and a little less with foreign tourists. In Taganga there are 2 ATM machines for withdrawing money (near the police station). The hotel offers to arrange excursions to Tyrona etc with more convenient pricing than local agencies.
Cons: The road through the town to the hotel is quite bad (potholes).
7.9 Good
Pros: The panoramic from the hotel is the best!!! Its just what you need for a sleep and breakfast. Staff is helpful and nice
Cons: Beds are not confortable, but it was enough There is a dump area next to the entrance, so there are a lot of street dogs and cats around it looking for food in the trash, which breaks your heart

10.0 Excellent
Pros: TLDR- Superb service, Accommodating, Clean, Good Value; Safe. The house and the views from the rooftop balcony lounge are stunning. Maria was very accommodating from the moment we arrived and set up all the plans for our outing. We just knew we wanted to check out Parque Tayrona. She arranged us discounted rates even though we were gouged everywhere else we visited and told us where to go to for a good swim. She even took us to one of her favorite restaurants the first night we arrived to give us a good sense of the area. Her dogs were very friendly but relaxed; and the food and drinks were pretty good too. I can't show enough gratitude to Maria. She is part of a neighborhood security service that made sure we were safe when we stayed out late in the town. If you're checking out Santa Marta, this is the place to stay on a budget!
Cons: The visit turned out to be wayy too short =(
7.9 Good
Pros: The owner is lovely and goes the extra mile to look after her guests.
Cons: It is a short walk through a more residential area so feels a little further away from the action (but Taganga is very small so not much of an issue)
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Maria, the proprietor, is extremely friendly and accommodating. She is a wealth of local knowledge and gives very good advice on local sightseeing trips. She will do her best to help you arrange transportation etc. and help to get you a good price. The hostel is about 10 minutes walk up hill. It is on the edge of the village which makes it quieter than staying in the center - but at the end of a long day it does feel like a long walk.
Cons: The hostel is about 10 minutes walk up hill. Not a big deal but if you have heavy bags or are infirm/ elderly it might be a factor.
7.5 Good
Pros: Woman running this place is great, friendly "mamma" :-) Terrace with a view.
Cons: Cold water only... but this is true for most of Taganga. Location: it's uphill, relatively far from everything.

Andres was so helpful in helping me get to the airport and exchanging my remaining pesos, he even refunded me for that night because I didn't stay over! A warm, friendly, and helpful welcome he provides! I would book there again if I went back, a nice and cozy accommodation!

3.8 Mediocre
Cons: They charge extra 7$ per night for AC. The bed was uncomfy and we had hairs on the bed. It's really loud at night. You can hear all the noise and music from the beach. Also they charged 30.000 soles for a little bag of laundry!! The stuff is grumpy. And the breakfast is awful. Dry toast and old looking cheese and ham.
7.1 Good
Pros: Breakfast made fresh - was good. Friendly staff, nice views of the bay. Clean room.
Cons: Dorms weren't even available for rent - and the place was empty. Very windy while I was in town, and the windows were rattling and shaking all night. Bit of an awkward walk back along the beach/rocks at high tide.

Cons: Not enough water in the shower
6.3 Good
Pros: Location is ok, staff is very polite and helpful, breakfast included is always a plus

Pros: Location is good but the quick way to the town requires a bit of a scramble over rocks at high tide. Ac worked well
Cons: Initially there was no gas available in our kitchen only after we insisted that we paid for a working kitchen we got gas. The kitchenware was dirty. It felt like we were an annoyance to the staff. Internet didn’t work in our cabaña. Cannot recommend.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Oscar was very friendly and helpful. He arranged a tour and gave further tips. Food was delicious and breakfast changed every day. The room was clean and cosy with fan and ac. We had a great stay and funny evenings sitting together.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Oscar was absolutely lovely! From check-in to check-out he was always around to answer questions about the hotel and tours, serve breakfast, water, etc (even when we came in/out at ridiculous times for him to unlock the gate - thank you!!). The room was nice with a huge bed, shower outside if you need a rinse before coming in, and of course the air con was lovely. We were warned a few times by locals that the area wasn’t the safest, but we didn’t have any issues during the week. It’s a small town and essentially a 5-minute walk to anywhere so we were happy staying a little ways from the main beach/restaurants.
Cons: Nothing to mention
9.0 Excellent
Pros: A great place, and Oscar was a great host. Always ready to help, great advice on food, what to visit and his English is really good.Thanks a lot for the good times!

3.3 Mediocre
Pros: there are some cool stuff like hammocks and some. pools but. not worth the headache
Cons: DO NOT BOOK DO NOT BOOK This is why; we booked a 3 bed room but what they didnt write. is that the room itself is birds nest, roof is made of leaves they were spider webs inside and no killa on the beds while the room has only one window that u cannot close we asked to switch to. another room and it had cockroaches inside. the crew does and sais whatever they want for example the cook that was in the kitchen when we asked for breakfast started screamin at us sayin that the other cook got fired so its not her job to cook for us, one of the crew. said that breakfast is till 10am and when we came half an hour before they said its closed and when we asked to talk to the manager the crew said that theyre. not authorized to let us talk to him/her the pools always remain dirty aswell so make urself a favor and think twice before. comin here !
