The common areas are very Zen. Comfortable seating areas. Many choices to have a serene quiet space or a space to meet and visit with others. Loved the Hammocks and the foliage. Staff super helpful. A nice walk down to town. Taganga people are friendly and helpful. The only down at night the dogs bark. A lot . They changed my room away from the road and I slept 🛏 really good Highly recommend this Hostel.

I highly suggest paying your tours directly with the hostel and not the guy that picks you up to bring you to the beaches . We weren't advised to pay at the hostel so we thought the tour was seperate and paid the guy who then said we never paid him. So just a heads up. Other then that, our stay was good:)

Great relaxing place with a wonderful view
Casa de Felipe is a wonderful place with many places to chill out, read a book, enjoy the view or relax in a hammock. It is spacious, so it never feels crowded. The dorms have good beds and comfortable matresses. The bathroom could be cleaned little better, but it is not really disturbing. The breakfast is great, many options and very friendly staff.

Lovely but loud
Lovely looking hostel with friendly staff. The fan in my room was too loud to sleep under so we had the two of us sharing a single bed under the better fan. There was weirdly enough space for us though so no complaints.The hammock right outside the room was a nice touch. If you're looking for a quiet night sleep though, try somewhere else. There is a cockerel nearby that starts off around midnight (no joke) and there's a place next door that plays loud loud music on Saturday nights way past 5am

Very friendly staff with a great tour desk. Food at the restaurant was great (the fillet mignon was incredible). The hostel is very spacious with good outdoor space Only downside was the lack of mosquito protection

Disliked: Room comfort
We stayed here for New Years and it was expensive and not worth it cost. I am not sure if it was for the date but I felt it was very over price for what you grt. THE ROOM we were given was located right next to the restaurant and cafeteria area so the room smell like food and it was very noisy and difficult to sleep properly. In addition, the room was not too good, had no air conditioner nor tv. I wouldn't stay here again or recommend it.
