I really liked the stocked in-room refrigerator. Very good location to see everything in the walled city. No community space to meet and get to know fellow travelers.

Arrived with a group of five people. This is a boutique hostel, not a place to party or meet a lot of new people. It was really fun being here with a group. The staff was great and there was a very nice rooftop terrace with some great views of Cartagena. The main gate was locked every evening and there was a security guard on site so everything felt very safe the entire time. Would definitely recommend to others. Its a nice break from crowded dirty hostels.


I loved this place very much. The staff was all very friendly and very helpful. The location is perfect good walking distance to everything. The rooms are pretty clean not too bad. Just overall had a good stay.


Very friendly staff and helpful. We stayed in a private bedroom (2 beds) - the room quite dark and woth a humid-lile smell but I guess this is the case for most houses in the old city area. However,good enough for a few nights stay. The location is excellent,very close to the major touristic attractions and restaurants and a few minutes-walk from the harbour where you can take a boat to the neighbouring islands


We had a great stay at Calamari. The rooms are amazing, very clean, good air conditioning and the location is perfect.
