Casa Loma is located 15 minutes uphill from Minca. When you reach there you will most likely be exhausted, but the staff immediately welcomes you with a glass of cold water. The Atmosphere in the hostel is ver positive and welcoming. The huts are small, but very special, with view to the mountains from your bed. If you are afraid...

Casa Loma is at the top of a hill - which you have to walk up with your bags (I would recommend leaving your big bag at your hostel, e.g. in Santa Marta, like we did - and only take a small backpack for your stay). The hostel is really nice + well furnished. Staff are helpful and there are...

This is an amazing place in Minca! The Casa Loma is placed in the middle of the green forest, a little up the hill in Minca. From the terrace, you have a great view over the mountains and down to Santa Marta and the coast line. The vibe is chilled and the hostal seems to be booked out all the...

We loved everything about Casa Loma! The location is sublime, high above the village surrounded by lush greenery and flowers. We were treated one night to an epic thunder and lightening storm. Safe in our Mirador Room (the private room above the main gathering area) we were able to take it all in. I will always remember it. We had...

The place is super interesting and unique. We stayed in a large hut that was beautiful and overlooked Minca. Great sunsets. The food was great. But the people running the place were snobby and pretentious. They were not very helpful at all. Would. It come back

Casa Loma is located up hill and offers amazing views. The huts and structures fit nicely with the surroundings and the basic idea is good. However, the hostel could use some minor and cheap upgrades (shelf space, towel hooks in the shower stalls, lanterns in the cabanas) and some clean up (discarded toilets and wood scraps laying piled up on...

Casa Loma is a nice chill hostel located above the small village - so you should be aware of a little up hill climbing - but I will say that it is all worth it! They rooms are nice and fit perfect in to the nature. there is a lot of insects in the area but all the beds are...

We loved our 4 nights so much that we added 2 more! My wife and I (29 yrs old), stayed in Mirador, which I highly recommend. The location is great, 10 min walk up from center of town and easy access to trails and activities. It's a peaceful and pretty place with wonderful sunsets and views. The people were very...

Thanms for a great stay at Casa Loma. My fiance and i had a great night in one of the glamping cabins and met lots of friendly travellors here. The only negative point that i would like to mention is that my expensive hiking shoes with orthotics went missing from my cabin. Although the staff initially helped somewhat to locate...

I spent one night at Casa Loma and I had to leave next day due to some booking obligations but all I wished when I was leaving was to stay a few more days. First, the walk up is around 10-15 mins up the hill it is a little bit steep but not so rough, keep in mind that if...
