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

    Jeder sollte das El Rio Hostel besuchen! Eins der besten Hostel’s in ganz Kolumbien! Wer Jungle Vibes haben möchte sollte sich das nicht entgehen lassen! Der Tayrona Park ist sehr nah um Tagesausflüge zu machen und ansonsten gibt es auch viele andere interessante Aktivitäten!

    Amazing place in the middle of the nature with awesome food and super friendly stuff. The loud music at the bar might be bothersome for people who like to go to bed early though.

    Very nice Hostel in the nature In the Near of the River. And a very good yoga class in the morning. Perfect place to relaxe and enjoy the nature. Only thing I missed is a kitchen for cooking by myself. They have a restaurant where you can buy all your meals but not for self cooking

    We really liked our stay at El Rio Hostel. The atmosphere was super chill, the Hostel organizes activities, the food is really awesome and the staff are super nice and always happy to help. It is the perfect place to relax(for example after the Lost City trek).

    So I think the Hostel is my absolute favorite one from the location (magical, beautiful place on a river in the jungle), the food and the beautiful garden - but I have to say that the toilets and shower do not match to the rest of this perfect hostel - you should really renovate them :)...and the atmosphere is dependent on the crowd (sometimes really annoying party people which remind me of Mallorca) BUT super nice staff, porno food and the best Partys (if there is a real rave going on)

    If u want to have a Party this is the right place for you. If you dont, better go somewhere else. Food is great and the river is very beautiful.

    El Rio is one of a kind hostal. Directly in the jungle you are cut off from the outer world a bit. No Wifi helps with this also. They have a big bar where everyone is meeting at the evening having some beer and cocktails. Only downpoint, drinks are a bit pricey compared to other hostals. Staff is amazing they are very friendly and are helping you with everything.

    Ich war im 6er Dorm in der Nähe der Bar. Mir war bewusst, dass im El Rio gern gefeiert wird, was ich nicht wusste ist dass es jeden Tag bis 4 Uhr morgens laut wird und schlafen im Zimmer unmöglich ist. In meinem Zimmer ging im 30 min Takt das Licht an und es wurden Lines gezogen und Joints gedreht um dann wieder raus auf die Party zu gehen. Die Zimmer sind super dreckig, als ich meine Sachen in den locker machen wollte kamen mir 2 Kakerlaken entgegen. Hatte auch demnach erledigt.
