7.9 Good

Cons: The noise of the fan !
7.5 Good
Pros: Good Price/quality ratio. Very nice people working there! Not too far from center and beach, rooms have everything u need.
Cons: Not the cleanest hostel and town but all good for chill travellers :)
4.0 Okay
Pros: The beds were ok.
Cons: I stayed for one night at this hostel and I can NOT recommend it at all. Here is what I experienced: It is quite run-down, what would have not been a problem if the owner would have been a nice human, but from my experience, he is not. I wanted to dry my clothes after swimming in the ocean-what is besides eating, drinking and diving the only thing you can do in Taganga and also the reason why I came here- and put them on the ropes for drying clothes, which are everywhere in the outside area of the hostel(I already did that the evening before and then it was not a problem). The owner came to me and said, "You can't do that, it's only for the lavandaria of the hostel". So I said, "Fine, but where can I dry my towel and bathing suit then?" He told me, that "it's not his problem and that there is no place in the hostel for it". When I told him, that this for me is bad service, he told me to leave the hostel. Before that his behaviour already made me feel not really welcome. When I arrived another male guest arrived at the same time. The owner only spoke to him and served him first and treated me, as if I was invincible. I just did not feel any kind of appreciation or respect and therefore felt not welcome at the hostel.

6.0 Good

8.5 Excellent
Pros: This place was a nice and cozy place. It is located very close to a beach, stores, and the bus terminal. The staff was very nice and kind also.
Cons: No air conditions, though 2 fans we had in the room did do the job for us to be comfortable.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Very nice and helpful owners. Very close to the Main Street of Taganga. All in all a good place to stay
Cons: There is anything to complain about
9.0 Excellent
Pros: I have been there a few days before Christmas. The town was quite full. Colombian party quite loud. The hotel is a little bit outside of the party area (just a few minutes), which I really liked as I could sleep well. Miguel and Wilmar were very nice and helpful. They speak English and Spanish.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very quiet place, near to beach & restaurants, the pool after the beach
Cons: None
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Taganga in itself was not nice at all for us, BUT the hostel really really made a difference. We got robbed (with a knife and everything) so our phones, money, bankcard were all gone. Meanwhile my boyfriend also had heavy food poisoning. The owner of the hostel was really so nice, he did everything he could to help us and to make it as comfortable as possible for us. Also the breakfast was the best breakfast we had in entire Colombia. We staid as super expensive chique locations too, and these could not tip the breakfast at Hotel Casa D'mer Taganga. The pancakes in particular were just perfect (especially compared to the fried/scrambled egg at every other place, which get's a bit boring after a while)!
Cons: The hostel itself is just perfect, nothing negative to say. It was one of the best hostels we've staid at. Yet, Taganga for us was just not so nice since we got robbed. When we were at the police station we met another girl who was also robbed and also had two friends who were robbed (in the middle of the street and nobody helped them, I guess people are scared themselves - which I can't really blame them for). So overall, Taganga is nice but for us it was not worth it, if you go there then be carefull where you go to. DO NOT go to the beaches at the left side of Taganga because that's one of the most dangerous and pore areas of Santa Marta so not safe at all!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great little hotel. The breakfast is delicious and the staff really nice and helpfull. Also the location is great and close to the beach! Stay there!
Cons: Everything was perfect!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly and warm staff, very attentive and professional. I enjoyed the stay at Hotel Casa D'mer, the room was very clean and it was a very good deal for the price! I would definitely stay here again!

They have two nice dogs and a cat. There is an awesome terrace with ping pong and games / places to eat. And hammocks.

Cons: Loved all
7.1 Good
Pros: amazing location, views and facilities
Cons: Staff wasn’t very communicative
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Perfectly located on a hill with amazing view on the sea and surrounding hills! STUNNING! Having coffee with that view in the morning was a bliss. This is the cleanest hostel I've ever seen. It's cleaned daily including the guest kitchen. Toilet is cleaned few times a day! The owner makes BEST natural juices ever! Pool is very refreshing and CLEAN! No mosquitoes!!! Taganga isn't a very nice place itself so most of the time we spent at the hostel. There is plenty of space for everyone and plenty of things to do. So chilled. This is NOT a party hostel but it's still sociable. Design is very very pretty! Colorful! There are books you can borrow and ping pong table. Plenty of hammocks. You must try the banana-nutella pancakes!!!!:) Highly recommended. The owner doesn't speak english but she is taking classes which we found very impressive. Well done !
Cons: -The way up to get there is a kiiiiiller! - our gate key didn't work! The owner was very UNHAPPY about it and instead of solving the issue she was shouting something in spanish even though she knew we don't speak spanish! She didn't even try the key just kept on saying it is "funciona" like I was a dumbass that doesn't know how to open a door with a key..?
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is such a beautiful casa, close to the plaza and with a beautiful garden and chill out space. The staff are all very attentive, friendly and helpful. My Spanish isn't great but we understood each other enough. Bruno the dog is adorable! It's quiet at night and very good value for money. Plus they do good coffee!
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The owner and her family are super nice and helpful. The hostel is located on the hill overlooking the bay and the town. The pool, the chill out areas, the hammocks and the many terraces were really inviting. It has a nice outdoor kitchen and if you don't like to cook yourself they provide very delicious food! Everything was very clean and well equipped. If you don't mind being about 10-15 minutes walking out of town, than there is no better place to stay!
Cons: Just be aware of the steep climb, it might not be suited for suitcases. We didn't have Wi-Fi during our stay but didn't really feel like we needed it.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything about the hostel was perfect. The food, the view, the room (value for money) beautiful hosts that make you feel very at home. One of my favourite stops in Colombia for sure! Anyone who's visiting Taganga must stop off here. 10/10
Cons: The hostel is located on top of a big steep hill... So make sure you have some water. Thee view is exceptional though. Well worth the walk up!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The view, the staff, the dog Rocco and the breakfast - everything was amazing. Such a lovely place! The AC room is incredible and worth every cent.
Cons: One night we spent in the non-AC room and it was unbearingly hot - so we slept in the hammocks outside, which was perfectly fine too...
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Due to its' remote location it is really quiet and the view over Tanganga Bay is amazing and still the beach and restaurants are only 10 minutes walking away. Our hosts, the dog Rocco and the rooms were really nice and we enjoyed our stay.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very nice place, clean, great swimming pools, nice staff! Cheap prices
Cons: Far from the beach
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great view from the terrace, plenty of hammocks, 2 pools, good breakfast. Staff is nice but you need to speak Spanish here.
Cons: The last day my coffee was served cold and the eggs had a crazy amount of salt on them.
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: there are some cool stuff like hammocks and some. pools but. not worth the headache
Cons: DO NOT BOOK DO NOT BOOK This is why; we booked a 3 bed room but what they didnt write. is that the room itself is birds nest, roof is made of leaves they were spider webs inside and no killa on the beds while the room has only one window that u cannot close we asked to switch to. another room and it had cockroaches inside. the crew does and sais whatever they want for example the cook that was in the kitchen when we asked for breakfast started screamin at us sayin that the other cook got fired so its not her job to cook for us, one of the crew. said that breakfast is till 10am and when we came half an hour before they said its closed and when we asked to talk to the manager the crew said that theyre. not authorized to let us talk to him/her the pools always remain dirty aswell so make urself a favor and think twice before. comin here !
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The pool is great and has a great view. Hammocks in the shade, clean facilities. Everything was great
Cons: The gps coordinates on booking.com are wrong. Spent a while wandering the town with my bags in the heat looking for the place.
9.2 Excellent

8.8 Excellent
Pros: We had a great stay! The room was nice and clean. The hostel is a 5-10 min walk to town. The rooftop swimming pool was amazing and the view was beautiful.
1.0 Poor
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Where do we begin. We had a horrific experience. We got robbed at machete point by two masked men at the beach, told the staff, and they showed zero compassion. They stole our phone, and money. My husband got cut by the machete and needed stitches. We did not feel safe in Taganga , the police did nothing, the police did not care. We needed to leave earlier than our reservation due to safety, but they would not refund us, even given the circumstances. There are 3 WiFi's connections, they gave us the password to the WiFi that DID NOT WORK AT ALL. There was another guest in the lobby who was there when we were talking to the staff about the robbery incident, crying, trying to get a refund and book a new hotel without WiFi. Luckily she was VERY KIND, and spoke both English and Spanish so she translated for us. She told us they told her that they did not want to give us the good WiFi password, I have NO IDEA why! Racist if you ask us. There's no other reason. We booked a double room and got put into a dorm room (although we had it to ourselves, but that's not the point). The location is far from the centre. Staff had their kids swimming in the pool. No hot water in the shower.
7.5 Good
Pros: Nice staff, room and facilities Will stay again
Cons: Not the best wifi

8.8 Excellent
Cons: Terrible noise from bars/diskos Friday and Saturday
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Spacious room very close to the beach. This is better, as the beachfront is a promenade with people walking around day and night. Breakfast was in a nearby cafe on the beachfront. The place is gated so you feel safe. Kitchenette in the room and barbecue on the premises. We had a problem with our car and the staff helped sorting it out immediately.
Cons: Unfortunately, only cold showers.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Property was good, kitchen adequate for just a few days stay. Place was clean and daily maid service was very good. Staff were excellent and helpful, but very little if any English spoken, but that didn’t matter. Very close to the beaches, places to eat and lots of choice for divers. We took a trip to Tayrona National Park for the day, need to haggle for a good deal.
Cons: Really only issue was occasional power cuts but that effected everyone not just the hotel.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was great Clean, comfort, near the sea Warm and amazing stuf!

Cons: The noise of other guests until late.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great outdoor spaces and rooftop patio. Decent emails provided in the hostel but you can also cook yourself. Owner also owns Camali hotel in Santa Marta. This is a great new place to stay with rooms surrounding a pool.
Cons: Lack of a pool was a big of a drag but one is now under construction. I think it will make this hostel the best in town.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Very helpful staff, relaxing setting with a nice pool just a short walk away from the main town, good breakfast, spacious room, nice cats :-)
Cons: It was very quiet when we were there which was nice and relaxing but not if you're looking to meet people, although the whole of Taganga itself didn't seem very busy over these few days anyway; it's not a long or strenuous walk to the main town but slightly uphill coming back so there are closer places to stay if you're not up for the c.10 minute walk each way

Pros: The girl at the reception was very nice Good location
Cons: Bed linens were dirty when we arrived, full of dust because of an open window I guess. The girl nicely changed it. The shower was plugged, the water was leaving very slowly leaving all the dirt on the floor. Air conditioning was not working very well

Pros: Oscar was very friendly and helpful. He arranged a tour and gave further tips. Food was delicious and breakfast changed every day. The room was clean and cosy with fan and ac. We had a great stay and funny evenings sitting together.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Oscar was absolutely lovely! From check-in to check-out he was always around to answer questions about the hotel and tours, serve breakfast, water, etc (even when we came in/out at ridiculous times for him to unlock the gate - thank you!!). The room was nice with a huge bed, shower outside if you need a rinse before coming in, and of course the air con was lovely. We were warned a few times by locals that the area wasn’t the safest, but we didn’t have any issues during the week. It’s a small town and essentially a 5-minute walk to anywhere so we were happy staying a little ways from the main beach/restaurants.
Cons: Nothing to mention

Taganga isn't a very nice place itself so most of the time we spent at the hostel. There is plenty of space for everyone and plenty of things to do. So chilled. This is NOT a party hostel but it's still sociable. Design is very very pretty! Colorful! There are books you can borrow and ping pong table. Plenty of hammocks. You must try the banana-nutella pancakes!!!!:) Highly recommended. The owner doesn't speak english but she is taking classes which we found very impressive. Well done !
Cons: -The way up to get there is a kiiiiiller! - our gate key didn't work! The owner was very UNHAPPY about it and instead of solving the issue she was shouting something in spanish even though she knew we don't speak spanish! She didn't even try the key just kept on saying it is "funciona" like I was a dumbass that doesn't know how to open a door with a key..?
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is such a beautiful casa, close to the plaza and with a beautiful garden and chill out space. The staff are all very attentive, friendly and helpful. My Spanish isn't great but we understood each other enough. Bruno the dog is adorable! It's quiet at night and very good value for money. Plus they do good coffee!
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The owner and her family are super nice and helpful. The hostel is located on the hill overlooking the bay and the town. The pool, the chill out areas, the hammocks and the many terraces were really inviting. It has a nice outdoor kitchen and if you don't like to cook yourself they provide very delicious food! Everything was very clean and well equipped. If you don't mind being about 10-15 minutes walking out of town, than there is no better place to stay!
Cons: Just be aware of the steep climb, it might not be suited for suitcases. We didn't have Wi-Fi during our stay but didn't really feel like we needed it.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything about the hostel was perfect. The food, the view, the room (value for money) beautiful hosts that make you feel very at home. One of my favourite stops in Colombia for sure! Anyone who's visiting Taganga must stop off here. 10/10
Cons: The hostel is located on top of a big steep hill... So make sure you have some water. Thee view is exceptional though. Well worth the walk up!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The view, the staff, the dog Rocco and the breakfast - everything was amazing. Such a lovely place! The AC room is incredible and worth every cent.
Cons: One night we spent in the non-AC room and it was unbearingly hot - so we slept in the hammocks outside, which was perfectly fine too...
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Due to its' remote location it is really quiet and the view over Tanganga Bay is amazing and still the beach and restaurants are only 10 minutes walking away. Our hosts, the dog Rocco and the rooms were really nice and we enjoyed our stay.

Pros: Amazing views and super friendly staff! We got the room with balcony & sea view, well worth it! The staff is really helpful, help you with bags and other reservations. If staying in Taganga, this is the best place! Clean, view, comfortable etc.
Cons: Taganga is a party town so during the night you can hear music playing (all hotels will experience this). When we were there it was quite windy, so the white chairs on the roof where moving which woke us up sometimes.
