The staff is super nice and the atmosphere in the whole hostel is very relaxed and welcoming. The rooftop terrace is unbeatable! And the homemade bread for the breakfast is really good!

Really enjoyed our stay here! Staff was very friendly and helpful and the hostel was nice & clean. Breakfast was very tasty. We had to leave the hostel at 645 one morning but breakfast started at 7, the staff was nice enough to make us breakfast early!


Taganga is a traditional fishing village and corregimiento of Santa Marta, located on the Caribbean coast of Colombia at about 10 minutes or 3 kilometres north of Santa Marta. Both Santa Marta and Taganga were founded by Rodrigo de Bastidas on July 29, 1525, making them two of the oldest remaining colonial settlements in present-day Colombia. The touristic town and backpacker hub is famous for its sunsets, diving and access to the Tayrona National Natural Park. Bohemian and richly decorated Taganga is full of hostels and forms part of the South American Gringo Trail. In the months of July and August the village is visited by many Israelis who finished their military draft period.
