I have nothing negative to say about this hostel what so ever. Great experience, if I ever go back to cartegena this will be the hostel that I will look to book first!


I felt like I was at home at Casa Nativa. The staff are amazing and very helpful. I can't wait to stay there again

Great location, small kitchen. A nice quiet hostel.


Nice hostel, clean, good location, away from the mental party hostels! Good security and the female reception staff was very friendly, informative and spoke good English!


Great location, it is situated in one of the most beautiful parts of Cartagena. It's a more traditional and tranquil part of the city, away from the craziness of tourist bars. There are plenty of nice restaurants nearby.


Good points are the location, the air con in the rooms ( but only switched on at night), the staff are very friendly and speak excellent English. Not so great things, the showers have hardly any space to change, no hooks, dorms very cramped, lockers on top bunks really hard to access/ put full bag in. Overall a decent hostel and I would probably stay here again.


Great location, and good lockers for valuables, but not much else positive to say. The staff are pretty disinterested and facilities (shower, WC etc) were really poor. The showers in particular are dirty, full of people's old wash stuff and are about the same size as a postage stamp. Do yourself a favour and stay at One Day Hostel. A bit further from central but so much better.


Good location good internet comfy and helpful staff


Small hostel in old city walls. Not a great atmosphere overall and too expensive for what you get.
