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.... More

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... More

- 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.

My friend and I recently stayed for the weekend, and it was just great! The place itself doesn't feel like a hostel, but rather, as a visit to your relatives; so to speak. Also, the stuff is very nice and friendly. I'd totally stay there again!

The hostel was great. Clean, fair prices and.comfortable beds. Dorm prices are around 25000cop per person or private rooms for a bit more. Nice restaurant, good music, hammock zone and a roof with a nice view. I would definitely stay there again

First of all, the rooms are nice, spacious and clean, the property itself got a chill vibe and staff is friendly and helpful, however the windows can't be closed in the rooms and there is no mosquito nets so each of us checked out with around 60 mosquito...
