Clean, great location, the plunge pool is great, the breakfast is decent enough. It's more of a place to chill out, there is no atmosphere at all.

Fantastic location, private room was absolutely gorgeous, loved it! Locks & windows needs WD40 / oil treatment as keys get stuck! Crisp clean sheets& clean towels. Quiet , hostel that attracts people who want to be part of the beautiful Cartagena vibe but not in a party hostel. For me was the perfect haven post backpacking & sharing with others. Highly recommend & was sad to leave.

We had a private room, with a tiny balcony, overlooking the tiny pool. Staff members are friendly and helpful. Breakfast wasn't great but did the trick. The rooftop area is very cool for relaxing and enjoying a quite beer. This is not a party hostel.

Some of the staff is really helpful, and the Hostel has a great location. They could have a better breakfast (instead of serving eggs with toast everyday). Other than that, the pool and the bathrooms are very very clean. Overall a good experience in Cartagena.

A really good option, and cheaper then some other places. The plunge pool was a welcome break from the heat! The breakfast was small but good. The room (the double) was large with a good bathroom and AC. Stayed for 2nights and would definitely book in again

Enjoyed my stay here. Once I got to know the staff they were really great. You just have to engage them as otherwise they will leave you alone. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing. The pool is nice but it is to small for swimming. Purely to cool off from the Cartagena heat. The location inside the city walls was great. Probably one of the best streets there. Clean and quite at night but just a block away from some of the nightlife. Would stay there again.

Nice small hostel with a good communal area in a lovely old colonial house. Particularly good kitchen for a hostel and easy to meet people as shared spaces all in one area. Staff all very helpful and great location on a beautiful street in the historic centre, walking distance from all the main sights.

Fantastic hostel in the best part of Cartagena to be as a tourist. Easy area to walk around. The staff is friendly and eager to help, and the bathrooms and dorms are large and clean.

Nice place in the old town with a really small pool which can be invaluable when the Cartagena's heat strikes. Good location, nice rooftop terrace.
