This basic backpackers retreat will get you close to every and anyting in Cartagena. Don't expect the Marriott with all the trimmings, but you will get a local feel in the heart Getsemani. The place is safe and around the corner from the Castilo de San Felipe. Just a short walk is the Old Quarters and the historical walled city...

I picked this because the Lonely Planet recommended it as the owner should be a good source of information on the Darien crossing. When I came I was told that the owner was not there, that in fact he only visits two to three times a year and has another hostel in another city. Nobody knew anymore about the Darien...

Casa Viena is very well located (even though Getsemani is a bit run down), is great value and a fantastic spot to meet backpackers (loads of German speaking folk). They have private rooms or dorms and I'd say the only issue is noise as it is tight quarters.

Nice variety of options regarding rooms. The dorm room is average but secure. The single and or 2-3 rooms are really nice. The whole place is vibrant with color and culture. They run a tight ship regarding security. I even left some things there when I went to Santa Marta and came back and everything was there where the desk...

I haven´t booked any hostel in Cartagena and on my arrival I had to walk around the Getsemani area and the Media Luna street to find a suitable place to stay. My first impression of Casa Viena was about the people who work there, they r really friendly, willing to help and give an advice. Unfortunately there was no individual...

PROS: We stayed here for 6 nights and thought it was good value. Although no longer owned by Hans (who now runs Casa Viena in Villa de Leyva) - we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Contrary to the last review - we found the cleaner Soraya to be friendly also and despite being busy took the...

I have had the unfortunate experience of watching casa viena go downhill the last 5 years. I came here in 2008 and back then the hostel was amazing with a very friendly staff that associated with their guests and truly enjoyed their job. That staff isnt here anymore. Ana and Leidis work during the day, they are nice, but care...

I did not like my stay here. The rooms are pretty shabby and old. There is a common area but it is not inviting you to hang out there. There is simply no atmosphere in this house. The staff is willing to help you if you ask for it, but there is no special "presence" - which you can experience...

Let's put it this way. My first 2 nights in Cartegena, I stayed in a "new" hostel, but it was down right dirty. So I moved here and boy was it a change for the better. The hostel is a little worn down, but you can overlook that considering the following... The place is clean clean clean. The dorms, the...
