We did not have any hotel reservations when we arrived in Cartagena. Someone told us that the Getsemani neighborhood was the "up and coming" area so we walked around and when we saw Friends To Be we immediately were attracted by it's amazing courtyard, architecture and vibe!

The hostel feels like a hotel, ample courtyard space, lovely decor, rooftop views. The pool was a huge bonus. 2 outve the 3 dormitories are a bit crowded, but relatively functional. Kitchen facilities are the best ever. Helpful friendly staff. You can buy an inexpensive, delicious breakfast here, and beers and drinks all day long.

The city is extremly hot, we spent our mornings at the hostel and believe me it was the best choice! The hostel has such good service and amazing stuff! The best part was drink some cold "cervezas" at the roof right beside the pool and enjoy the beutiful view! Just in a few places I can say I feel really...

Very helpful and kind employees! Dorms were nice too. Pool is quite small dont expect too much swimming. There is a kitchen one can use and therefore cook your own meals. The area around is beautiful and calm.
