Viajero Tayrona Hostel in Review

Fancy a quick visual tour before we jump into the details of why this stands to be one of the best hostels in Colombia?

Here is a short video that will certainly get you excited to pack your bags.

Viajero Tayrona Hostel is a 5 Star Hostel in Colombia because…

1. Eco-friendly ‘Habs’

So you might spot that on some platforms, this hostel also goes by the name of Viajero Tayrona Hostel & Ecohabs.

But what exactly is an ecohab?

Well, we’re pretty sure they’re referring to their eco-friendly rooms. Built with a natural straw & bamboo roof, minimalist design and a natural heating/cooling system thanks to the building efforts.

Yet it doesn’t stop there, oh no.

The entire hostel is designed as an Eco Habitat (see what we did there).

Thanks to the location and many outdoor amenities, you will no doubt spend 95% of your time outdoors.

So that’s automatically saving on power. And of course that natural cooling of the buildings means no need for air-con.

If the evenings become a bit chilly, group together around the outdoor fire. Too hot? Jump in the pool!

2. Designed for Outdoor Living, day and night

Surely you’re heading to this part of Colombia to enjoy the comfortable temperatures, beaches and working on that tan.

Viajero Tayrona Hostel seriously has your back because…

…the focus of this accommodation is getting people outdoors.

Honestly, you won’t have much option here!

All of the buildings are completely detached from one another, including the shared dorms (plus female-only) and private Ecohabs (with their own deck).

They’re spread out on a big bit of land that incorporates vast sandy chill spaces, poolside areas and that all important private beach.

Yet you could still be tempted to hang out indoors.

Each room is super spacious and bright, with big windows allowing for plenty of natural light.

The private rooms even come with an indoor hammock and seating area!

The hubs are so gorgeous and do so well to create that beach life vibe. Check out the bathrooms – we just love the roofs which allow you to look at the palms whilst you shower!
