Descripción de la propiedad

Winner of Hostelworld's Best Hostel In Colombia 2018 and Second in Latin America!

10 minutes from the Lost City (Ciudad Perdida) pickup point

25 minutes from Tayrona National Park (Zaino / Cañaveral entrance)

Please do not arrive after dark (6pm) as it is very difficult to find transport in Buritaca at night.

We offer accommodation in hammocks (our 11 bed dorm), each of which comes fully equipped with a pillow, blanket, power point, locker and mosquito net. We also have three 6 bed dorms, all en-suite, two with air-con, plus the 12 bed fan cooled dorm. Our private rooms come in the form of 7 gorgeous cabañas, each with a double size bed (that can be made into twins if needed!), safes and blankets.

Our hostel is set right in the middle of a stunning jungle, whilst some of Colombia’s best beaches are just a 30 minute walk away. We can organise surf board rentals and lessons with our friends down at All Good Surf, plus Palomino is just up the road.

At the hostel we have a ping pong table, a volleyball court, pool table and probably the best bar in South America, serving up cool mora gin & tonics, maracuyá vodka, soda’s and more. We’ve been known to host the odd party - check the social calendar on our website for more information!

Fun stuff on offer includes:
Daily yoga (Monday to Friday)
Tubing right from our doorstep
Horse riding
Paddle boarding
Motorbike hire
Bicycle hire
Bird watching
Dawn walks for sunrise over the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta
Cacao and nature tours

We have no wifi - prepare to disconnect!

See you by the river. Ver las reglas de la casa

    Stop reading reviews and book this hostel immediately before its fully booked. Ive been to many hostels in my life but this one is one of the best ive ever been. Really easy to meet new people as a solo traveller and the nights at the bar are great. No wifi does really good to the atmosphere. Hammocks were comfy to sleep as you get a pillow and blanket as well. Food was varying everyday which was nice.

    Amazing stay at El Rio. The owner Ben was very welcoming. The volunteers made it though: Jackson, Katie, Cassidy, Josh, Rose were all great. Tim from Australia was also a great fun and almost a volunteer. He really added to the experience, you should really give him a volunteer post as he deserves it!

    It’s definitely a party spot but it’s clean, the food is good, the tubing was really fun, and it feels like a little getaway because it is remote. Just as everyone said, it’s really only backpackers- but the location is so nice it’s worth going for a short while

    Muy buen hostal, hay muchas actividades qué hacer. La comida es muy rica, aunque los precios son un poco más elevados que en la mayoría de lugares. El ambiente es completamente de fiesta. Una burbuja que no te conecta mucho a lo qué es Colombia. La camas del dormitorio no tenían red para mosquitos.

    Muy bueno el lugar pero cuando hice la reservación decía dormitorio de 18 camas, pero cuando llegue, me dicen q son hamacas, lo colocan en letra pequeña en la reservación pero deberían cambiar el nombre de lo q se está reservando y colocar 18 hamacas compartidas. La música dura hasta las 6 am y no permite descansar, se va luz constantemente. Pero tiene una muy buena vista y buenas actividades.
