This hostel is located in the heart of the old town. Lots of shops and restaurants can be found in this area. It's a very relaxed place, run by a lovely couple who are extremely friendly and helpful. They serve a decent breakfast in the mornings. They also sell nice arts & crafts in the store in the front of...

We only stayed for 1 night but the owner (adorable couple!!) amazingly welcomed us! They also took care of everything for our last minute and late decision to go to Playa Blanca for few days. Great recommendations, no pressure and very kind and nice people. I recommend this place for a short stay in Cartagena. Clean place with a nice...

My girlfriend and I stayed at this beautiful hostel for 2 nights and had a blast. The hostel is located within the city centre close to all the main attractions. The staff is very attentive and helpful. All the staff members suggestions were spot on, she marked the best attractions and true Colombian restaurants on a map for us, which...

This hostal is wonderful. Its location its in the " historic center of Cartagena". Its staff is very nice, always looking for the comfortiness of their tourist! Its very quiet despite its in the center of the city. You can sleep comfortable all night long. Its close to restaurants, bars, museams, churches, and nighclubs. Recommended it 100% percent!!!

The first person to help us there was very rude and unhelpful. Felt like we were being spoken to like dogs. The location is not bad but was also over priced and the rooms were not even that nice. Sorry to say guys, but if you want to compete, you should pull up your socks.

This hostel is really hard to find. Room are a bit outdate. Because its in the centre of the city its charges to much for what the room is really worth. Al the rooms are triples, so they charge you for 3 persons. I won't recommend this hostal, aldough is has friendly staff.

Family group of seven stayed 26/12/15 to 2/1/16. For a hostel the provided a kitchen and place to store breakfast food items. Manager and staff were very attentive to matters needing attention. Matilde always a smile. Highly recommend. Remember you get what you paid for. A returning customer with family.

I have been there for only one night. It is way more exensive than any other hostal around (I paid 70.000 COP per night) and I am pretty sure they gave me the most expensie room (single room) although I asked for a dorm (which was definetly available). The AC worked fine but the fan which was also installed in...

The location is good in the city centre, but very very noisy. The staff is helpful, relax and nice; but the rooms are really bad with high level of humidity and dark (no windows) and the bathroom is private, but in pretty bad state. Internet is working in the garden and in the rooms ar least in the one close...

If you are looking for atmosphere, location and value, this is the place to stay. Is it as luxurious as the expensive hotels that surround it? No, but it also doesn't cost over $100/night. This is the third place I've stayed in Cartagena and the first one I've really enjoyed. The owner and staff are friendly and attentive. The location...
