Overall I am positive about this hostel. The dorm is well priced but the double room is way overprized. They are renovating rooms and this one absolutely needs to be done. They didn't clean the room, we had to ask for it. If it's 35 degrees they should at least empty the toiletbasket because that's gonna smell.
The price includes 2 towels (bathroom and beach/pool) and breakfast which is really good. During the day you can ask for a glass of water (they refuse to fill your bottle...) and coffee/tea. There are lots of colourfull seats and hammocks. The pool is pleasant, but needs to be cleaned more often so you dont swim between flies and leaves.
The Austrian lady is very kind, the owner is okay. But the guy with long hair really has an attitude!
Our room was in ankledeep water because of the heavy rain and he just sat at the table commanding a sweet old man. After 15 minute still not solved and are bags and clothes got wet. I asked again and he spoke to me with a very irritated voice that he told us that someone was coming. He remained sitting and drinking!! The first day we saw him hanging around at the roofbar smoking joints.
Other negative thing was a very bad dinner, too expensive for what you get and there are 2 dogs

I was pleasantly surprised by this place.
My room was large enough, decent sized bed too.
Overall very clean. The staff makes you feel at home.
I am used to much better (and pricey) hotels but I hated Santa Marta and loved Taganga.
Thank you Divanga!

We stayed at Divanga because it was recommended by many people we met during our trip in Colombia. I can confirm that this is the greatest hostel. You really feel welcome and receive the best help ever for anything interesting to do in the area. The pool is great and clean, the whole site is beautiful.
Besides, the food is a dream from breakfast to diner. This place is so charming and staff so nice, not bother looking for another in Taganga.

I stayed at Divanga B&B and I had a very positive experience. The staff is always willing to help and the food served in their restaurant is great!

After making the check out and heading back to Cartagena, I realized I had left my ipod there. Lucie, Divanga's owner was really quick to notify they have found it and arrange the shipment to Bogotá.

If I get back to Taganga I am likely staying at Divanga's again.

This was a great hostel! Clean, inviting, social, helpful staff, solid breakfast program, hammocks, pool, internet... I confidently left my large backpack in the locker here while I went on a hike/bike excursion with Elemento. ($45/night for a double room) Not the cheapest hostel option but completely worth it!

We has a great stay, good service and it was nice hanging out by the pool though it wasnt super clean. Great WiFi. Good food, excellent fruit drinks. Friendly people, good service. A bit more expensive than average. Go for a room with an AC as the fan room gets too hot!
