Don't go. On the way to Taganga we were warned by different groups not to go and that robberies happened EVERY night of the weekend. Of course we didn't listen. I was travelling with a 2 metres tall Sicilian bloke so....no one is robbing me. At the hostel (we stayed at casa de felipe - gorgeous but only so you... More

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... More

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.

Casa de Felipe is a really well maintained little compound in Taganga. The onsite juicebar (and bar) and kitchen were great and the staff were helpful and friendly. Very well run. A good mixture of young fun crazy travelers as well as older travelers staying here. Tips: Roosters may wake you up a little early but thats what you get... More

Casa de Felipe was recommended to me a while ago prior to my travels and for a very good reason. It has excellent service in addition to its professional french chef and delicious fruit shakes, if you ever plan to get to Colombia, this place is a MUST!

La Casa de Felipe is a superior hostel and restaurant. Located 5 mins away from the Main Street, you will find this beautifully designed hostel. Set amongst the hills the buildings are across split levels. You feel like you have escaped and found a hidden hideaway with beautiful gardens, hammocks and great views. A main drawcard is the restaurant and... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and massively enjoyed our stay. Staff were super helpful, beers were cheap, food was AWESOME, and room was great and well priced. Small walk to the beach, but keeps it quiet and would definitely recommend staying here again!!!
