Caribbean breezes, friendly folks, light & airy rooms, Oso is the sweetest stay in Taganga! The rooftop gathering spot is always cool & breezy with glorious views of the mountains & the ever-changing Caribbean, a different color every day! 2nd floor room at the back of the hotel is my favorite, well ventilated, good light & a nice bathroom that...

In the rooms at first floor the rooms have no access to fresh air or u have to use the dirty airco. The AC of the other rooms makes a terrible noise. You need earplugs! There is a light shining all night in the hall and every guest that wants to come in or go outside needs to wait for... More

Worst hostel experience ever. When we arrived we got greeted by the most unfriendly staff I've ever met, providing nothing more than the necessary room we had booked(they didn't even know about our reservation). It was cramped and unclean. At 4am (!) the neighbors starts blasting music, we're talking two big club speakers at maximum volume, pointed directly at the... More

This hotel was very nice and clean with a cool airy rooftop with hamacks which was my favourite place. Restaurant next door with good prices is good solution for lunch or dinner and friendly as well..

I came expecting a very friendly hostel with lots of people, but was disappointed. The upstairs deck was nice and breezy, but no one around and when it got dark there were no staff to turn the lights on and I couldn't find the switch. Not great when going down rickety stairs. I had a room on the ground floor... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Oso Perezoso is a small, three-story guesthouse located just a block from the Caribbean sea, in the small town of Taganga, Colombia. Situated amidst the homes of friendly fisherwomen and multi-generational families, Oso Perezoso has a comfortable and welcoming feel that has consistently earned it an entry in Lonely Planet Colombia. Our seven private rooms include singles, doubles, and a three-person dorm room, ensuring that all travelers can find a comfortable fit at Oso. All rooms include a private bath. A hammock dorm can also accommodate travelers seeking a different (and cheaper) experience. The third floor of the Hotel Oso Perezoso hosts an open-air terrace, covered by a rustic thatch roof and open on all sides to an exceptional panoramic view of the mountains and sea. Just above the kitchen is a rooftop hammock cabana, available for those who prefer a more rustic night's sleep. Hotel Oso Perezoso has wireless internet, breakfast available, and is just a short walk from the Caribbean sea. We offer free luggage storage for guests who wish to explore the region: Tayrona National Park, Cuidad Perdida, or surrounds. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is here to help with travel plans, treks, dives, transport, and anything else you need in your travels. We love Colombia and want you to love it too! Feliz Viajes y Hasta Pronto! **In case you still need to brush up on your Spanish, "oso" means bear and "perezoso" means lazy. Although in Colombian Spanish, "oso perezoso" also means a sloth the vibe is the same: lazy hammock swingin' and fresh juice sippin'. ... more   less

“All the rooms rock, but the middle floor is my favorite. Good space, good ceiling fans and great in-room bathrooms. They have a variety of spaces to suite every budget and give each guest the space that they really crave.”
