This is a great hostel, sociable but not overwhelmingly/annoyingly so. The social area is large, has plenty of hammocks and was not full of twenty something backpackers doing what twenty something backpackers tend to do when concentrated in a small area (nothing wrong with this in general, those days have gone for me though). Staff were very helpful and friendly....

My boyfriend and I spent 9 nights here in between visiting Bogota and Medellin. Our private garden suite with kitchenette and bathroom was a perfect place to relax, cook, write, bird watch and chill with the Casa cats .The short uphill walk from town is worth it and the design of the place is a perfect combination of open gathering...

Very nice and spacious hostal with nice size dorms. The set up of the whole hostal is just nice. With a large garden area and rooftop terrace. Sadly.. Lockers are a bit to small to put in laptop. You pay everything on the spot from the restaurant and it takes forever and tastes..oke. but the thing that was freaking annoying...

I have been travelling in South America for nearly 3 years now, and this is one of my favourite hostel experiences, having now stayed twice. I go to Taganga to dive (and for the nearby attractions), but I stay at Casa de Felipe because of the ambience, the friendly staff, and the cleanliness. It's lively but not a party scene....

We stayed in the hostel for three days to visit Tayrona Park. The hostel helps you to find the perfect tours, is really clean, offers good food, has freindly staff and is really beautiful. In the relax zone you can swing in hammocks while watching the sunset over the ocean. One problem: there are NO mosquito nets in the rooms....

We enjoyed a lot the 2 days we spent in La Casa Felipe. They have an amazinf roof-top terrace with beautifful sunset view. We spent hours reading up there, sitting comfortably in the hammacs :o) The rest of the place is lovely, very neat and tidy. The staff at the reception is very friendly.

Our stay at La Casa de Felipe was great. We had a studio that was really comfortable, clean, and with a nice terrace with a hammock. Everything is cute and gives you a taste of paradise, for example the restaurant's yard where there are so many plants and cats, or the mirador where you can enjoy the view in a...

- Stayed in a private room with private bathroom. Only complaint was that it was really warm, and the fan didn't do too much at night - Nice area up top with hammocks to read and relax - Reliable wifi - Short walk to the beach/town but recommend a taxi at night - Not the best beach but you can...

Stayed one night there and it was very good. Friendly staff and good breakfast at the bar in the garden. At the reception there is also a lovely cat. Our luggage stayed one day when we went to Tayrona and after return we had lunch at there restaurant with good food.
