Stayed here for two nights. Highest spot up on a hill in Taganga which gets you great views. Rooms were standard, lots of hammocks and spots to hang and watch ocean. Best part was the French chef who cooked amazing and affordable meals AND the homemade juices at the bar.

It seems to be common among costenos that they dont smile or appreciate your business. However, we were not shown around, we were not told hello, we were over charged, the place was dead, the walk up the hill was very sketch, the internet was not great.... They also dont speak much english which normally doesnt matter much but the...

The hostel is awesome: there are plenty of social spaces, a bar with a beer storage all day long and a restaurant with yummy food from thursday to sunday. Rooms & common spaces are very clean, outdoor areas are very beautiful. What's also quite important for Taganga - there's constant water supply in the hostel (there's a shortage of water...

My girlfriend and I spent 3 days here in April. We had an amazing time. The staff are friendly and the rooms were very clean. There are hammocks everywhere and the view from the rooftop patio is amazing and you can catch a great sunset over the bay. If you are here on a weekend check out mirador for a...

My partner and I stayed at this hostel for one night and it was fantastic! A beautifully clean room with a nice cold shower for the hot humid weather. They also have a great juice bar which are fairly cheap. The lovely outdoor garden and hammocks are a lovely place to relax. I'd definitely recommend this hostel if you are...

This hostel's best feature is definitely the great restaurant. For what you get, the prices are really fair because the food is delicious. The restaurant is open Wed-Sun. They also have a juice bar that is open every day. If you stay at Casa de Felipe, you definitely have to try the jugos! Edgar isn't the most friendly guy, but...

I have been travelling for the last 5 months, and found this hostel to be one of the best I have stayed in. I was only intending to stay in Taganga for 3 days, but ended up staying for an additional week. And the main reason... is because I found this gem. For me it really was a home from...

Pros - fantastic common areas - has charm - big, thereby easy to meet people - nice mix of guests (nationality, age) Cons - location, while the town is not big at all, Casa De Felipe is at its upper edge, so the walk to beach and the restaurant-strip is the farthest you'll walk in Taganga. Admittedly only 10-15 minutes....

Casa de Felipe is a lovely hostel, though I wouldn't spend too much time in Taganga itself. The hostel is set around a pretty, large courtyard with several tables and hammocks to relax. The rooms are a decent size, very clean, comfortable and quiet. Reception staff are very friendly and helpful, though the bar staff can be a bit less...
