With its impressive 5700m snow covered peaks, dense and vastly uncharted rainforest and pristine caribbean beaches the Sierra Nevada mountains is one of the most ecologically and geographically diverse region on earth. With colonial, pre-colombian and african influences to be found in its food, art and customs, the culture and people here are just as diverse as their environment. Our hostel is within walking distance of the Pueblito/Calabazo entrance to Tayrona National Park.Behind the property there are many trails into the forest and up the Rio Pierda where you can find various natural pools and waterfalls. Some of the most beautiful beaches in Colombia are easily accessible and the town of Santamarta with its airport too.We also offer help planning your activities and making the most of your stay with us, at our front desk reception.

Our dorms and private rooms with their incredible vistas of the surrounding landscapes, are both spacious and comfortable. Each bed has a mosquito net and the rooms are well cooled by fans. Our dorms have their own en suite bathrooms and our privates have easy access to showers and toilets which while keeping you private are open to the countryside. Two of our private rooms have their own private balcony and our dorms have their own terraces.
