A home away from home May 15, 2011
What a great hostel! It's location in the beautiful village of Taganga is excellent. While being off the main busy route, La Tortuga is a short stroll from everything that you need- beach, shops, diving schools and great restaurants. The views from the rooftop bar are stunning and watching the sunset from here is peaceful and breathtaking. If you want party, it's here! If you want to chill out you can get away by relaxing in the spacious sitting room while watching a movie on their impressive tv. There are a selection of hammocks strung up around the hostel for reading a book or having a nap in the midday heat! The bedrooms are spacious with just 4-6 beds per room and with ensuite bathrooms also. Their are no lockers in the bedrooms but the staff are happy to keep any valuables locked in their safe. Breakfast is included, the normal bread, jam, coffee and milk. There is also a swimming pool in the garden.

Both the owner and staff are happy to help with organising diving or spanish courses, taxis or bus information- whatever you may need really. Overall this hostel was a home away from home for me as it was my base for exploring the area for 2 months! I recommend it... just follow the turtle ;)

La Tortuga, Taganga, Colombia Sep 18, 2010
New hostel, not yet completely finished. Kitchen is very basic, dorms okay. Staff could be friendlier.. The door is always locked, and they find it a bitch to have to get up every time you want to get in. Maybe unlock the door boys? Free drinking water, free wifi, although it's a shit connection. The rooftop terrace is one day going to be a cool place to hang out, but it will take some time and effort. Cold drinks available.

Not recommended. Stayed here three nights, 20.000 COP ($10) per night. It's not bad per se, but there are better places in Taganga, like Casa de Felipe.
