Okay so it might be a really basic explanation that I just can't get my head around but how the hell do hammock beds work? I get if they're inside an actual hostel you'll still get a locker etc it's just like a quirky bed option, but what about beach hammocks like the ones in say Tayrona National Park, where they're genuinely just on the beach? Where do you put your stuff?! Is there security in case random people approach?! I'm confused haha

It is a weird concept hey! So most of the time, right next to the hammock, will be a locker for at least your valuables. Sometimes you can even fit you're whole bag in! Make sure you have your own padlock.
If the hammock belongs to a hostel, you will check-in at reception and they normally assign you a specific hammock. This was the same for Tayrona National Park!
Most hostels will provide you with a sheet or blanket for you to use in the hammock but this isn't always the case so I recommend checking ahead because if it is not provided, you will want something to cover yourself up as it can often get chilly!
