Infrastructure very nicely designed and relaxed atmosphere with Amazing views. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, especially Elise at our Check-in who spent a lot of time to guide us in details. The breakfast was yummy and we also really enjoyed spending time by the pool and in the restaurant area. It was very handy having the Wifi since...

The hotel was lovely, clean, amazing food and good customer service. There is hot water, the rooms were tidy, clean and very comfortable, also the place is perfect If you want to spend a couple nights close to Tayrona park, then you can go to Palomino's beach which is unspoiled , we highly recommend it!!!

After spending 4 days in the jungle doing the lost city trek we didn't fancy sleeping outdoors in the park itself (Although in hindsight I wish we had spent more time there). This was the next best thing - dorm is cheap, clean and has ac. Breakfast was dece too. Would recommend if you don't want to sleep in a...

I stayed for 4 nights with my family of 4. Although rustic it was nice, clean and surrounded by trees. My big complaint was the noisy busy road. I expected to be surrounded by nature and although it looks that way the busy road is right next to the pool. The trucks are annoying and can be heard most of...

We loved our stay at Yuluka eco hostel! Our family (of four) had a fantastic 3 night stay at Yuluka which enabled us with easy access to Tayrona Park and other nearby attractions. The owner and staff at Yuluka were extremely welcoming, kind and helpful. They provided us with a lot of great tips for places to go and explore...

I was not pleased much with EcoYuluka near Tayrona. It is run by international volunteers, the owner lives above the office and does not extend any hospitality to guests. I had booked a dorm bed, the volunteers stay in the dorm room also, so the bathroom and room is full with their stuff. I had requested a bottom bunk, but...

We stayed here for 4 nights, 3 in the cabin at the top of the property and 1 night in a cabin just near the pool. First the positives. The hostal is in a lovely tropical setting with lovely plants, birds and animals to be seen, as well as some nice views of the nearby mountains from the restaurant. The...

Good location for visiting Tayrona National Park, very close to the entrance. Nice breakfast included, good restaurant options for lunch/dinner. Stayed in the dorm, very good value for money. It is close to the main road so you can hear the trucks passing by. The whole hostel is very nicely built, lots of green. Owner is very friendly. He also...
