Stayed for three nights - it was exactly the reason we wanted to go to Minca. Yes, it's a 5 min steppy hill walk (welcome to minca) but it's well worth it (if you have mobility difficulties, then maybe trying to carry your luggage will be tricky). The staff were helpful and friendly, and the food tasty! Cold showers are...

Seeing in Valentines Day in the Casa Luna room that looks out over the stunning Sierra Nevada, with it's own private view of the already amazing Casa Loma sunset...just wow. Love the communal dinner. Love the lack of wifi. A MUST stay in Minca :-)

It's a great place full of love and peace. It has that hostel vibe that I love in which you manage to share with people from all over the world. The perfect place to disconnect from everything (no Wi-Fi and that's alright). With amazing views and one of the best sunsets I've ever seen. They offer yoga classes, restaurant and...

We followed up our stay at Casa Loma with La Candelaria Finca, which has the most incredible scenery but is much further outside of town, so the view from Casa Loma was a little overshadowed for us, although the view and sunset are still great at Casa Loma! The vibe felt pretty much as expected-- a chill backpacker's dwelling. I...

Nice location however rooms and surrounding are getting run down. Very high turnover of guests so bathrooms, showers, lockers etc need an update. Staff aren't the friendliest. Always felt like I was bugging them when I had questions. No wifi, which is nice unless you need to get things done (cafes in town have wifi though) Food is good -...

We had a lovely stay at casa Loma. Quite a climb but all worth it. We had one night in a little house with amazing view over Santa Martha and one night in Casa del Sol. A great introduction class to Yoga too. Our compliments for the staff, we were happy with your kind support and great breakfast. We can...

We stayed two nights in La Casa loma. A friend of us recommended it and it was totally worth it. The guys where so friendly there. It is a hostel made with a lot of love and detail. You have a big choice of accommodations. We stayed in a 7 bed dorm but you also have hammocks or private hat's...

Casa Loma is the best. The staff is amazing. Each and every person working there is warm, friendly and accommodating. There is so much to see and do in the area and they will help you make the most of your time. If you just want to chill, then this spot is for you as well. Nestled in the mountain...

Casa Loma is really amazing place with beautiful landscape 😀 There is no conection to the Internet that's way people (mainly bakcpackers) spend evenings together on talking, playing games etc. Food is so delicious, I ate there the best lunch in Columbia. It is worth to visit that place.
