A real shame!!! We booked a room and 10 days before our arrival they sent as an email telling us they couldn't give as a room since there was a lot of moisture in the walls. They were supposed to get as another hostel but However they didn't. Besides we then got to know everyone's reservation had been cancelled not due to moisture but because some guy rented all the hostel for himself by paying more than us
This new family-run place is perfect value for money if you want a bit of calm whilst staying in the centre of Cartagena historic quarter. The staff was super friendly. Giving us advices for addresses around. The roof terrace had a panoramic view of the city. The tiny (but so good!) pool was there to cool down at the end of the day. Good kitchen and breakfast. We stayed in 2 other hotels during our stay and this is the one we would definitely go back to.
new and very nice hostel;perfect location!!
