The pool is definitely a plus in such a hot town! We used it every night. Andres, from the front desk, is super nice. Do not expect to use the kitchen. It was not made for guests to use it. This was not a problem for us, but might be a point to be considered if you plan a very long stay. The place is charming and the street is one of the most beautiful in town.

You should 100% go to this hostel. It's right in the center of the walled city and a close walk to many great restaurants. The staff is extremely helpful in giving recommendations, booking trips to the beach (including playa blanca) and calling cabs for you. It looks as great in person as it does online and I felt very safe at all times. The air conditioning didn't hurt either. If I am ever back in Cartagena, I will be back at this hostel.

I absolutely love this hostel! It was recommended to me by a friend. The staff are friendly, sociable, especially Andres! The location was perfect, accessible to all locations such as bars, restaurants etc. The dorm was comfortable to stay in as there was AC during certain hours. The bathrooms and the pool were clean with a small table nearby where you can mingle with other people.

Andrés was the coolest and most helpful member of staff that I have come across in over a month through South America, he really made my stay!
