My husband and I stayed at Casa de Felipe for two nights. When we first checked in the staff was helpful. The room was ok and the bathroom too. There was one wall damaged with water causing fungus. When we went to have breakfast we could not get it charged on our account, but had to pay cash. We still...

Casa de Felipe is one of the best hostels in South America.The only thing missing is swimming pool, The rooms are big, nice kitchen and restaurant with great food. Staff was very friendly as well. My only advise is not to walk alone there at night as you might get robbed as me!

Casa de Felipe was really a great hostel for the price! They had a great french chef who came to cook on weekends and had a good breakfast option as well. It was worth the hike up the hill away from the mail street on the beach. Pros: - good food ( a bit expensive though) - nice accommodations -...

Bit of a climb up the slope to get to the hostel and sometimes can feel a little bit unsafe, I wouldn´t recommend walking it alone at night but personally I had no problems and I walked it alone sometimes during the day and with some friends at night. Staff are very friendly and my room in a shared dorm...

Very nice hostel with clean rooms, nice beds and fans. There are plenty of spots to chill in hammocks or have a beer in the garden or roof terrace, big television room and big kitchen which is nice to cook (but you need to do grocery's in santa marta). The rooms are not expansive so good value for money. The...

This hostel is a little walk up the hill from the beach but is an excellent place to stay. The rooftop terrace is a really cool place to hang out. It has excellent food cooked by a French chef. We were stuck without a hostel as we came back from Tyrona a day early and Casa de Felipe helped us...
