Nice Hostel. Quiet and big rooms. We was there just for one night. But it was the best place in cartagena.


We had the cheap room with the portal but it wasn't actually that bad at all. Kitchen was well equipped and breakfast was amazing. Pool was lovely. Staff were very nice although one girl at reception struggled for 10 mins to work out where the hostel was on a map, a map she provided. It's a bit worrying when someone can't point out their place of work in their home town, on their own map. Had no adverse effect on our stay though to be fair.


Friendly & helpful staff, great location & good value for money

Second time round staying here, it's amazing!


Beautiful courtyard pool. Room was slightly basic but it had everything we needed. It was just outside the walled city but it was only a short walk away. Communal areas were lovely and the breakfast was good. Wifi also worked well.


An adorable boutique hotel in a great location. Tasty breakfast and friendly staff. Only there 1 night but wish it was longer


Great stay! Helpful staff, great location within easy walking distance of basically everything. Breakfast was awesome!


Quite good value for money and location. Satff could be friendlier, though.


We had a great stay here! Very friendly people, good location, great breakfast! Definitely recommend!


The "economy" rooms are not worth the cost. The upgrade to a poolside room for only a little more was what made this stay worth it. Breakfast was great and staff were lovely!


Good breakfast and friendly staff.


Clean place and friendly staff. Off of a main street which means close walking distance to old city but it can get quite loud at night as you hear people passing by / loud music.


good location and friendly staff. things to be improved: air conditioning and shower were not working properly.


My daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights on my first trip to Colombia! Wonderful!

Compared with a Hostel a little more expensive but the breakfast was really good - fresh fruit salad and tortillas. Delicious. Staff were friendly, especially one lady when I arrived.


Gotta say, we didn't love this place. The location was perfect, the breakfasts were decent (great juice), the staff was friendly (and a few spoke good English) and the pool area was cute, but otherwise it wasn't great. We were in the junior standard room. It was right by the street with no window but very thin walls, so it was LOUD. The AC, however, was louder! The room was dark and felt very dungeon-like. If you stay here, make sure to stay in one of the rooms by the pool.


We checked in and then checked straight out. The rooms by the pool looked really nice, but we were given one of the upstairs rooms, where the walk up the rickety staircase was pretty dodgy, and the room was dark dingy and smelt of damp. If you do stay, try and insist on one of the rooms by the pool. Having said that, the staff we very friendly and totally understanding when we told them we wouldn't be staying.


Nice guesthouse


The best things about the hostel were the location (a 5 minutes walk to the walled city and to the dock), the swimming pool (it was always clean and the water was at a nice temperature), the breakfast (fruit salad, toasts, omelette or pancakes, etc). However there were also some bad stuff. For example, the air conditioning remote was broken and It stayed broken for the whole week I spent there so the room would be an oven or a freezer, TV broken. They didnt even have warm water in the shower.

The hotel is in a great location walking distance to the walled city. The lobby can get a bit stuffy but they do put fans out. The breakfast is simple but tasty especially the fruit. The staff is nice but has limited information on the area. The rooms are large and the air conditioning works great, the bathrooms are simple but are spacious also. Id definitely recommend this hotel to anyone from couples to business people. The knocking to enter the hotel can get a bit annoying though.
